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.

Real co-op, real retro.

Boot Hill Heroes Readies Cooperative Retro RPG Gameplay

With a successful Kickstarter project back in 2012, Experimental Games' role playing game Boot Hill Heroes is finally ready for the world. 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!

Cleaning up the streets, retro style

Fist Puncher Available for Xbox 360

Side-scrolling beat em' ups have been making a comeback in recent times. Once a staple of the video game world, these types of games took a hiatus, only to be revived once again when retro-themed games once again entered the gaming scene. One such game, Fist Puncher, was released recently for the PC. Fist Puncher, from Team2Bit, was a very zany brawler that featured tons of characters, content, moves, and achievements.

Indie-Ana Co-Op and the Rise of the Ravager

We are but a few short days away from the unveiling of the next Xbox and the rumors are running quite rampant. One thing we do know for certain is that XNA, Microsoft's packaged game development tools, will no longer be supported, though nothing has been stated yet what that means for the XBLIG program. This week in Indie-Ana Co-op, we look at an indie game that shows the value in having a program like this on a console: Rise of the Ravager.

White Noise Online Brings the Co-Op Scares

Do you enjoy games that exist simply to test your bladder's ability to hold urine? White Noise Online takes a page from the Slender book of game design and drops you and some friends in a dark, spooky woods with the simple goal of collecting a bunch of tape recorders. Don't worry, though, because you've all got flashlights! Flashlights that do little more than attract the scary thing that keeps appearing just outside of your field of vision.

Indie-Ana Co-Op and the Dead Pixels Postmortem Interview

This week in Indie-Ana Co-Op, we speak with John Common, the creative mind behind the zombie indie co-op game, Dead Pixels. If you haven't had a chance to play it yet, I highly recommend it. It's a bargain at $2.99 on Steam, and a steal at $0.99 on the Xbox. A year after its initial release, the game is still going strong and we wanted to find out from John what's been so successful about the game and what he's learned along the way.

Co-Op Action game needs your vote!

Vote for SCHAR: Blue Shield Alliance on Steam Greenlight

Valve launched their Steam Greenlight service last week to the masses with the goal of getting a spotlight on promising indie titles.  Once it launched though, the unmoderated service quickly filled with spam type postings and the good content started to get lost in the shuffle.  Valve has since implemented a $100 barrier of entry which should help a bit, but indie developers like Brain Shape Games still need your help to get noticed.
