The Kickstarter for the spiritual successor to Star Control ends on Friday, May 17.

The Free Stars: Children of Infinity Kickstarter Has Ended Successfully (Updated)

In the long-ago days of the early 1990s, a sci-fi RPG called Star Control II came out on PC and 3DO, and it knocked the socks right off of anyone who played it. Now, the creators of the series are working on a modern sequel called Free Stars: Children of Infinity. This will be the first installment in the series to feature 2-player online co-op, an early stretch goal for the fundraising campaign. The Kickstarter will end on Friday, May 17 at 11 PM PT, and before that happens, it needs more support in order to fund the addition of voice acting. Let's make it happen, co-op lovers!

Players will gather resources and build things together in a world of floating islands.

Colorful Co-op Survival Game 'Solarpunk' Announced for PC and Consoles

You can't throw a rock without hitting a survival game these days. I just threw one, and it hit Smalland: Survive the Wilds! Well, Solarpunk, the upcoming survival game from Cyberwave and Rokaplay, differentiates itself with a fantastic setting: the sky. Players will travel between floating islands on an airship and work together to build, farm, and craft gadgets. The developers plan to first launch on Steam Early Access next year, followed by console versions. To make all that happen, they've just launched a Kickstarter.

Lovers in a Dangerous FTL?

Team Up With Friends to Man A Space Station in Undercrewed

I loved Subset Games' FTL, and the only thing about it I didn't like was that I couldn't bring in some friends to help crew the ship and save the galaxy. I'm guessing I wasn't the only one that felt that way because Undercrewed, a new co-op title that's currently in development, seems to be drawing some strong inspiration from not only FTL, but also Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime.

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.

RPG inspired by big SNES co-op hits

Knights and Bikes Coming to PS4, Kickstarter Still Going

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.

A game looking to unite players through a different kind of story

Puzzle Co-Op Adventure Inbound in Together: Amna & Saif

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."
