In Symbio, two forest creatures that could have not been more different team up in order to climb a tree. Being either nocturnal or diurnal, the two animals have to rely on their partner to guide them through the darkness. During their journey, the two players that can not see each other not only have to communicate, but also need to hold hands in order to complete tasks. Symbio is a new and fresh approach to cooperative gaming by incorporating physical, human touch into its gameplay and a unique experience that can barely be described in words.
