I’ve been looking around lately for local co-op games for PC that I could invite friends over to play. My goal was to find games that could be accessible to a wider range of gaming skill sets so that a more unique group of people could enjoy the gaming experience. The first game I tried with a couple friends was Trine 2. Unlike most co-op local multiplayer games, Trine 2 is 3 players instead of 4. Due to this player restraint I recruited 2 friends, both gamers at different levels of gaming expertise. Trine itself is a puzzler platformer so it requires strategy, tactics, cooperation, and communication. These are all values I like to see in a game.
We started up the game with no prior knowledge and began playing. Sadly my first recording sessions missed the first couple chapters, and chapters 3-4 didn’t have the audio commentary recorded, so I’ll be starting with chapter 5. I’ll upload the previous two chapters at a later point. Here’s our playthrough of chapter 5.
