Satellite Reign is the visually stunning spiritual successor to syndicate and it now has a released co-op mode, along with a hefty 50% off sale.
From their update post:
QuoteWe've updated the main branch with the co-op build of Satellite Reign, so now everyone will have access be default! We're not "officially" launching until the end of the week, but we wanted to get a few days of it being tested by everyone, now that we've addressed the most critical issues.
First thing you'll notice, is you'll be greeted with a choice between Singleplayer and Multiplayer. To play co-op, simply select Multiplayer, and either load up your own existing save as a host, or join someone else as a client
You can see my original impressions of the game here.
I haven't been able to try the co-op mode. It is basically the same game, but with friends controlling people with you.
You can get the game on both Steam and GOG, but I'm unsure if GOG has this new build yet (GOG has no easy way to see on a store page if a game has been updated).
