Parkitect gains cross-platform online co-op in the latest update

By - | Views: 7,947

Parkitect, the magnificent theme-park building game from Texel Raptor added online co-op, after being in Beta since April. This follows on from the original multiplayer update that was locked per-platform back in December 2020.

This is great and at times a technical challenge due to the way different platforms handle things, which we've seen before in other games. Crossplay is becoming (thankfully) a much bigger focus in recent years with many more games, and consoles, properly sorting it out so you can play together regardless of your choice platform. For a game like Parkitect, building cooperatively is such a wonderful idea for an already great game.

Here's what came with the latest patch:

  • added cross-platform multiplayer mode between Windows, Mac and Linux players
  • fixed boats from different boat rides sometimes not colliding with each other
  • fixed some custom music mp3s could be played at the wrong speed
  • multiplayer: fixed a desync that could happen when there are multiple boat rides near each other

You can pick up Parkitect from Humble StoreGOG and Steam

This is such a sweet game! I really need to play it again! I never tried it in co-op.

Is that game playable for a 10 year old, or is it too complicated for kids at that age?

Me and my (at the time) 10 yr old son have had a lot of fun building theme parks in Parkitect. Some of the mechanics might be a bit complicated, but with some hand-holding (great excuse to play yourself) it's super fun. 10/10 recommended.

He's now 12 and still enjoys it ;)
