Fight off the zombie hordes with Lincoln, Napoleon, and more

Second Chance Heroes Arrives on Steam Today

In the US of A, we are celebrating our independence in the only way we know how - by consuming massive quantities of processed meat in tube packages that are then grilled, and then detonating colorful explosives. Today also marks the release of Second Chance Heroes, so kicking zombie butt while playing as Abraham Lincoln and with a bunch of friends is also a good way to celebrate.

Developer Mount Olympus wants to make co-op games that bring us together

Indie-Ana Co-Op and the Dev Stories - Fostering Gaming Relationships

Co-op gaming has definitely grown in the past few years but it's a two-edged sword.

Nothing says co-op like burying a king.

Chariot Lets You Cart Around Royal Remains with a Friend

Push, pull, slide, ride and reel. That's Chariot in five words. Using a few more words, it's a 2D co-op adventure platform game that stars a princess and her fiancé tugging her father's remains through a cave on a "chariot" to reach a resting place suitable for his royal bones. From that alone, it's easy to tell this is going to be a crazy game.

A smattering of co-op offerings

Xbox One's Indie Games Program to Get 25 Games

Not to be left behind by Sony's push to welcome indie games/developers to the PS4 fold, Microsoft recently released a list of indie games that would be making their way to the Xbox One console as part of the ID@Xbox program. Many of these are games that have been out on PC or some other platform for a little while and are now getting ported over to the next gen console. Perhaps the best news for us co-op lovers is that a handful of these titles embrace the cooperative spirit!

Consoles are Dead. Long live the game.

The (De)Evolution of Video Games

It all started with an article from TechCrunch called “The Console Market is in Crisis.” The quick of it is this - comparing this generation of consoles to last in terms of raw sales numbers shows a steep decline in total sales when looking at the North American market.

Real co-op, real retro.

Inspired by the likes of Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, and the early Final Fantasy games, Boot Hill Heroes takes a spaghetti western-style world and mixes in some extremely well-thought-out cooperative gameplay features. At long last, teammates who spend their time sorting inventory items won't stall the game!
