That's one small step for a ball, one giant leap for ballkind.

Bang-On Balls: Chronicles Gets Huge Space Race Level

Bang-On Balls: Chronicles, the ball-themed 3D platformer from Exit Plan Games, has been available on Steam Early Access for a while now. Updates have seen the addition of new co-op minigames and huge campaign levels. The latest level, "Race to Space," is based on the real-life space race between the USA and the Soviet Union in the 1950s and 60s. It's an absolutely massive level with lots for co-op and solo players to bang on about.

Almighty: Kill Your Gods is an action RPG from Versus Evil and developer RUNWILD Entertainment that launched on Steam Early Access in May.

Almighty just got even mightier thanks to an update that adds a challenging subterranean Hollows realm to explore.

You're going to want a solid co-op crew for this one

In Case You Missed It: GTFO Is Available via Steam Early Access

10 Chambers Collective's GTFO arrived via Steam Early Access last week. As it is still in the beta phase, there are only six levels available at the moment, though getting through those won't be easy. The developers are out there pretty publicly stating this game was designed to be a challenging experience and that it may not be for everyone. Based on what I've played so far, they're not wrong.

Undercrewed Is Now Available in Early Access

Last year, we got a brief glimpse at Undercrewed, an interesting co-op title that blends elements of FTL and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime. At that time, David Strachan, the game's developer, was seeking funding for his Kickstarter (which was a success) to get enough money to help him finish development. Today, we all can enjoy the fruits of those efforts as the title arrives in Early Access!

Your viking mileage may vary

Bossgard Stream Recap

There's a new asymmetrical multiplayer game in town called Bossgard and for this week's "Let's Play Co-Op," Mike, Jason, and Nick donned their viking helmuts and viking gear to take on some killer bread! In this 1 v 5 game, 5 players take on the roles of different vikings to bring down 1 big boss. You can have humans in all of those slots, or you can do 5 humans vs 1 A.I. boss (our preference). The title is currently in Early Access on Steam and there's certainly some areas where you can see this is still a work in progress, like the balancing between the two sides, but there's certainly promise.
