I must admit, I'm sort of surprised to see so many co-op twin-stick shooters lately. It's a good thing, don't get me wrong, it's one of my favorite genres of games - after all I created one myself. It's just surprising because they always seemed sort of niche. Perhaps Monsters and Monocles, launching today on Steam Early Access, is the very embodiment of that. Combining steampunk, horror, and retro goodness into a four player twin-stick game.
