Noooooo... my spare time...

Alright, alright – I'll get my controller. Man, for the three bucks or so that I payed when it was first on Steam, I've got to say that I have really gotten my money's worth out of this one. I don't think that any other game I've ever played even comes close.

I never did finish all the stages in the base game, although I think it's great fun.

There's been so much added, it's almost tempting to wipe it all and start fresh.
You know what they should do, add like 2 or 3 player coop, or 4 maybe? Obviously difficulty curve would need to adjust or be adjustable to suit this mode. Maybe give special abilities that are multiplayer only like being able to combined abilities with other players to get more effect.

I think all that above would bring people back to this game pretty strongly!

They added that back in August.

I was about to answer the same thing and just before hitting Enter I thought "You know... I am really bad at detecting sarcasm on the internet. I am not going to answer." I still cannot tell, but I suspect a missing /s.

Even if that's the case, I'm sure it'll help someone.

Also, I believe that they're still looking into "proper" online co-op, though apparently you can also use Steam Remote Play Together already, too.
