Episode 50: The Co-op Categories Summit
Whoa, episode 50! This week we're not talking about one game in specific and instead we're diving into co-op games as a whole and the ways they are built to be fun and engaging. We're classifying the mechanics of co-op gameplay so we can better help people discover games they might like. The categories we come up with will be one of the descriptors used on our Saves Together Recommends list that will be accessible on our website (savestogether.club)in a few weeks. We wanted to make this list so when someone you know asks "Do you know any good co-op games?" you'd be able to easily send them a variety of games with different styles and intensities just by linking to the website. Hopefully this list will provide something for any interest and skill level with games. But enough about the list; it doesn't even exist yet! Join us (and the birds outside the Saves Together Treefort) now for episode 50 of Saves Together!
