BRAWL is a game we tried out recently in a livestream between myself and Samsai, we found it to be a little amusing.

Disclosure: Our keys were provided by the developer.

The hook of the game is that instead of just having simple bombs, you also have secondary abilities which change between the characters. My selected character was able to place down a tower for a period of time, and anyone who stepped in it got their controls reversed, which was actually quite hilarious.

It would make a great party game (Steam Machines anyone?), so if you have people over, or people to play online I can recommend it.

Is it multiplayer on a single Steam Machine with multiple controllers or does it require multiple computers.

Either can be done. You can local co-op with friends or even take friends into online co-op on the same machine. You just press your keyboard key and/or controller button to join in, on the select a character screen.
