While the game got Greenlit on Steam, development on Ruin of the Reckless isn't done. The two-man development team of Faux-Operative Games launched a Kickstarter campaign a couple weeks back and just hit their funding goal of $10,000 today.
Just a few months ago we heard about a new co-op survival game, The Wild Eight, that was in development by a studio based out of Yakutia, Russia. The team's goal was to get the title out on the PC this year, but they needed a little help to make that a reality.
The co-op adventure Knights and Bikes, which is inspired by titles like The Goonies and Earthbound, has finally reached its funding goal of $142,577. This means that the game will definitely be coming out on PC, Mac, and Linux (via Steam), in addition to the previously announced PlayStation 4 version. As the campaign is getting close to the end, a very important stretch goal is in sight: online co-op.
If you were to stop me on the streets one day and asked me what is my favorite co-op game of all time, I'd respond "Secret of Mana." I'm a huge fan of RPGs/aRPGs and that title does it so well on top of allowing you to play it with friends. Rex Crowle and Moo Yu, two of the creative minds behind games like Tearaway and Ratchet & Clank, are looking to bring back that type of title with Knights and Bikes.
Divinity: Original Sin is getting a sequel everyone! Well, it will if you fund it. Which you will, right? I mean, after all, you all voted for it as the Best Indie Co-Op Game of 2014. That's what I thought. So go ahead and get your financials squared away so that you're all prepared to start throwing money at your computer screen next Wednesday, August 26.
Independent developer Humanature Studios announced that its crowdfunded Toejam & Earl sequel will feature a four-player co-operative mode that builds on the multiplayer elements of its classic Sega Genesis predecessor.
New indie developer Mount Olympus Games, headed by Lyle Cox, has a vision for gaming. Rather than a new FPS shoot thriller, or hack-n-slash loot fest, they want to make games that "benefit society... We want players lives to be better for having played my games." Their first attempt at this is Together: Amna & Saif, a cooperative puzzle platformer where "you can't complete anything by yourself" and players "will need to communicate and co-operate with each other to progress."
We informed you guys about The Red Solstice last May, when the game was entering alpha. Just recently, however, developer Ironward launched a Kickstarter campaign for just enough outside funding to help finish up its sci-fi RTS/RPG co-op game.
The creator of XCOM, Julian Gollop, is now working on reviving his 1985 ZC Spectrum game, known as Chaos: the Battle of Wizards, into a brand new title called Chaos Reborn.
What if we told you that there's a new co-op shooter game currently in development that combines elements of both Left 4 Dead and Shadow of the Colossus? No, we aren't joking around here, it's already a year in the making. Bringing together various developers from Crytek, Ubisoft, and even Adhesive Games (the creators of Hawken), Outrise aims to include a mashup of these two extremely popular video games in what seems to be the best ways imaginable.
You may remember that this last year at PAX East, I went hands-on with a neat little game called Eon Altar. Eon Altar combines a tabletop RPG experience with the modern technology of smartphones and tablets for pretty awesome results. Last week, a kickstarter was launched for the game, and now it's your turn to help out if you want to see this game come to life.
Sometimes Kickstarter projects are runaway successes. Sometimes, though, despite how awesome a project might look, there's just not enough people interested in it. Ravenloft unfortunately looks to be one of the latter.
