Hello! Over the next few days we’re going to be going back over some of our favourite games and moments and themes and whatnot from this very strange year. We hope you enjoy looking back with us!
It’s not easy finding games to play with other people in the same house. You’ll know this if you’ve tried. It’s one of the reasons I was so impressed with It Takes Two earlier in the year. It’s not only playable in local co-op but entirely designed for it, which means gameplay solutions require two people rather than can also be played by two people. For instance, one person throws giant nails into a wall while the other person uses the head of a giant claw hammer to swing on them. It’s just one example and there are many – the ideas keep changing and they keep coming – and it’s brilliant. It Takes Two is probably the best example of dedicated local co-op gaming in years, if not ever.
