I was lucky enough to win a beta-test version of this game in a giveaway and got to play it a bit ahead of launch here on steam. It was a real treat. I'm a really big fan of co-op games, especially local co-op as I play them regularly with my wife, and have played most of what's available on steam. This one seems to have that special something that makes it feel like we are actually playing together, and not just going through a single-player game simultaneously. You get to create your character in a meaningful way, through decision making both in action and in conversation, and it really feels like a well though-out system. You also have real interaction between the pc characters, which defines the story and makes the game much more immersive, which is something often overlooked in co-op games. Graphics-wise the game is gorgeous. I really liked the art style, and all the animations seemed well done. There were some performance issues on my version, had to turn everything down quite a bit to run smoothly and not look like slow motion (although I did play on a laptop, but a powerful one), but once I got it going - it was awesome! I expect the final version will be more optimized and run better, and I knew this was just a beta version, so no points lost there. Gameplay is interesting, if somewhat simple. I can't really judge anything yet though, as I've only scratched the surface of the game. I like the dynamics of the character interaction, but really need to see the game through before saying more (I'll update the review when I finish the game). The only thing that bothered me up to this point is how slow the boxes are moved, pushing them takes forever. Controls are simple enough and work great, both on keyboard and controller. The game also supports using a smartphone as a controller, which is awesome. I haven't tested it yet, but will update the review when I do. The storytelling is also one of the strong suits of the game, for some reason it reminds me of Steven Erikson's The Malazan Book of the Fallen. You also get to shape the story, both past and present, as you make dialogue choices. Again, I haven't gotten very far yet, but I can say my expectations are high. All in all, one of the best co-op systems I've had the joy of playing and look forward to discovering everything this game has to offer! I haven't really played enough of the game to get to know it fully, but from what I have seen, I'm pretty much ready to put it in my top ten coop games list (or even top 3 if it keeps going as strong throughout). Great art style, great storytelling and awesome real co-op. Recommended to anyone who enjoys co-op games!
Tristoy is a metroidvania style action adventure game, playable only in coop with another player. You can play in split screen or online. The 2D graphic is very nice and the puzzles are ever interesting and based on the cooperation. One player is a prince and the other is a wizard: they both have to defeat the Witch Ink and his army of very different enemies. The game as a good atmosphere: you and your friend are prisoners on a isle lost in the sea and you have to escape Ink's dungeon. In addition of all this impressive gameplay, you'll have multiple endings and moral turning points: this will allow the players to restart the game several times before boring.
