I Wanna Wok! Co-Op Board Game Wok Star on Kickstarter

While our focus here at Co-Optimus has been and always will be cooperative video games, from time to time, we cover co-op tabletop game news as well. A hard to find, out of print co-op board game, Wok Star, is in the final hours of a successful campaign on Kickstarter. The initial print run in 2010 sold out quickly, and for the second print, publisher Game Salute took the crowd funding route to get the game into more gamers' hands.

Sci-fi Rogue-Like Risk of Rain to Get Online Co-Op

With the multitude of games getting released these days, both from major development studios and independent ones, it's easy for a great game to go under the radar. Such was almost the case for Risk of Rain, an action/adventure platformer with rogue-like elements that supports 4 player local co-op on PC. Fortunately, Matthew Griffin of Yeti Trunk, the developers behind Wanderlust: Rebirth, shot us an email to not only bring the game to our attention, but also let us in on a bit of exciting co-op news. Specifically, that he's working with the game's developers to add online co-op to the game.
