[UPCOMING] New type of addiction disrupts game development at Two Tribes!

During development of a brand new, yet unannounced game, employees at Two Tribes have started to exhibit symptoms of what appears to be a new type of addiction. Designers, programmers, game testers and even producers have been caught frantically switching items around. Office supplies, i-devices and even Toki Tori's eggs have been lost and subsequently found at the most unusual places.

At the time of writing it is unknown what the long term effects of this addiction are. Apart from having office redecorating effects and being highly time consuming, the addiction does not seem to have any damaging side effects. All subjects seem to derive a healthy dose of pleasure from this 'compulsive swapping disorder' resulting in the addiction spreading at a fast pace!

Office cameras managed to capture footage of an employee suffering from addiction:

Although not having been academically tested, a causal link between the new game in development and the symptoms of addiction seems logically. Assuming productivity returning to its usual state, the new game is scheduled for a September release.

You have been warned...

Wasn't TwoTribes affiliated with Team17, THQ, and Demonware on the game Worms: Open Warfare 2 for PsP and DS? hmm...

Anyhow, this sounds interesting! Love the title of the thread!

Yes Two Tribes did things with Team 17 and THQ for Worms: Open Warfare 2

I'm wondering where this game is about, it kind of looks scary to me! Hopefully we get more news about it!

Nice. This is a pretty original way to tease people about the new game. I am curious though, if the game is coming out in September, shouldn't they start to show some stuff?

If you ask me, it sounds like some simulation-office game...

Can't wait to hear more.

Wonder if it's an augmented reality game? Would love something like (particularly from this developer) instead of all the bogus camera-involved games that are out right now.

Normally I wouldn't care much, but the fact that it's something new from Two Tribes is enough to make me take notice.

It does graps your attention, comparing this stuff with Toki Tori
Office related game? I don't know, maybe it just has something to do with the addiction ... we'll see, I'm sure Two Tribes will announce more soon, since the release is in september!
