A little over a year since it was first released, Hazelight’s sophomore title It Takes Two managed a new milestone now celebrating 7 million copies sold as of this July. The game’s first milestone was achieved in a month as Hazelight celebrated 1 million copies sold. Check out the tweet celebrating 7 million below.

It Takes Two is the second game under Hazelight, one of the studios under the EA Originals brand. Like its predecessor, A Way Out, it can only be played via local two-player co-op or online co-op, making this achievement much more meaningful, given that two players of the game need only one copy to play it, even during online play.

It Takes Two is an action-adventure platformer title that tells the story of a married couple, Cody and May. As a couple that has seemingly lost the spark, Cody and May are planning their divorce. After telling their daughter Rose, they find themselves trapped inside the bodies of her handmade dolls. They are then tasked with resolving their differences to break this curse and reach their daughter.

Besides being a platformer, It Takes Two is best known for its staggering amount of variety when it comes to game mechanics. As players progress through the game, they will experience a ton of minigames that require cooperation from both players to finish or solve, usually with Cody and May sporting different but equally essential powers.

It Takes Two received critical and commercial acclaim, even more so than A Way Out, the title which put Hazelight and its director, Josef Fares, on the map. It was notable in winning Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2021, one of the most unique titles to hold prestige. It Takes Two’s critical acclaim also led crossovers to other media. Earlier this year, a feature-length movie was confirmed to be in development. Amazon will officiate the distribution rights, while Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson confirmed for producing roles.
