Continuing my quest to find some great co-op games, I recently tried out A Gummy's Life which was a birthday gift from a reader. It's actually hilarious! It's basically a fighting game with some silly physics featuring various "gummies", which each have different colours available to pick from when choosing. Plenty of different game modes like Hot Potato, King of the Hill, Team Deathmatch and Free For All so there's some good variation to keep you happy.

While it's not currently finished since it's an Early Access game, what's already there works really well and it's quite an impressive party game. Easy enough for kids to pick up too and my son certainly cackled away like a mad-man while playing it. Honestly, I think this is the most I've ever heard him laugh while playing a game, which is of course rather infectious and so it was massively enjoyable for me too.

Here's a bit of madness when we tried it out:

For those who don't have people to play with locally, it also has bots that are quite good along with online play so there's plenty of options for you. It supports up to 16 players, so it can become pretty damn ridiculous.

Find it on Steam.

If you didn't try already, Octodad looks interesting as well!

Reminds me of Gang Beasts, I'll have to check it out

"Reminds" is a very weak word for this, this seems like a carbon copy of Gang Beasts. Same concept, same core gameplay.

And Gang Beasts is already available on Linux, so what's the point?

As I understand it, Gang Beasts has no bots (only in a specific mode) and a lower maximum player count. That alone, could be a selling point for a lot of people. We certainly made great use of them.

The levels look interesting, I'll probably wait until the game is closer to release before considering a purchase to see what else they might add.

It's been a couple years since I played Gang Beasts, but this looks a bit more polished.
