As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Co-Op Gaming undergoes a Rebirth with [Wanderlust].
This game has been out for awhile, but it recently came out on Steam. Developed by two man team Yeti Trunk and published by Chucklefish, the team behind Terraria, Wanderlust is a 4 player co-op adventure game that, at its surface, plays very much like Secret of Mana. Run around, hit a thing, hit some more things. It has a lot of awesome modern trappings that really flesh it out.
You move with WASD and use your abilities with your arrow keys. The right arrow key adds a modifier, giving you a total of 6 abilities ready to go. You can configure these however you like.
You have 4 classes available, with a male and female variant for each. They all have traits you can put points into, which unlocks more skills. Putting points into THOSE skills unlocks more. The way you earn these points is atypical. It's not like many games of this type where it rewards you for time put in. You earn a number of points based on your performance in each chapter of the story. The onyl way to get more points? Do better than you did last time.
I've only played the story , but there's also "The Crawl." I need to try this and bring impressions.
It features a robust crafting system and supports 4 player co-op on all modes. You guys should play it with me! It's currently 7.49 on Steam!
