It has been a very different week at the Hamar Game Collective office and for us in the Shadow Puppeteer Team. Last weekend news reached us that our brilliant and cherished sound guy, Jory Prum, had been in a terrible motorcycle accident.
In our previous “Tagalong Trap” post we talked in general about cooperative games, what components make them “true co-op games” where both players perform active and meaningful roles. We also cited examples of how we implemented these components when designing Shadow Puppeteer.
This time, we will go more into depth about specific ways of working when developing co-op games and give examples of how this was done for Shadow Puppeteer.
To celebrate Valentine’s Day, as well as the love two people feel for one another when playing shared-screen co-op, we’re putting Shadow Puppeteer on Sale. From now through Monday, Shadow Puppeteer will be 10% off on the Nintendo eShop, Steam, Humble and Green Man Gaming. Happy Valentine’s Day and happy co-oping.
With Valentine’s Day approaching we thought we would write a slightly different blog post. This week we’re sharing our “Top 10 tips for Geeky Valentine’s day Dates”.
Shadow Puppeteer is NOW available in Europe, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand!
