Tied Together is a Co-Op Platformer That Will Make Your Friends Hate You

If you thought playing Overcooked with your family on Thanksgiving was stressful, allow me to introduce you to your new hell.

Tied Together, the newest title from Dutch developer Napalmtree, is a cooperative platformer designed to keep you and your friends close. Literally, that is, as you and your fellow players will be tied together in the game.

Announced exclusively for the Nintendo Switch, Tied Together contains all of the trappings of your standard platformer. Players will have to avoid obstacles, jump from one platform to another, and locate hidden keys around each stage. Of course, players will have to coordinate these actions in tandem with the one to three players they’re attached to.

In addition to these tried and true platforming tropes, Tied Together also seems to have a very dynamic physics system. From the gameplay shown in the trailer, each character appears to have their own distinct feeling of weight to them. This overarching sense of gravity, coupled with the game’s wind mechanics, balloons, and sharp objects hiding around every corner, seems to combine the fluidity of Super Mario Bros. with the calculated nature of a billiards game.

All in all, Tied Together looks to serve as a trust exercise just as much as it serves as a game. There’s no doubt that players will have to clearly communicate with one another about their upcoming movements and sort out strategies to avoid some of the game’s numerous lava pits or spiked surfaces. Whether or not you can remain friends afterward, well, that’s up to you.

You can check out the new teaser trailer for Tied Together below. While the game’s publisher Headup Games has not announced a release date, the trailer states that the game is coming soon

Slime-San: Superslime Edition Arrives This Month For Consoles, Here’s a New Trailer

Slime-san: Superslime Edition by developer Fabraz and publisher Headup Games will be launching this month and a brand new trailer has just dropped.

The title is a 2D platformer that follows the story of a slime that gets eaten up by a giant worm. Players must navigate through the internal areas of the worm or face being digested by the wall of stomach acid that closes in in them.

Keeping all three of the major campaigns, The Slime-san: Superslime Edition brings an extra ten exclusive levels in which they take control of Grandpa-san. Dynamic colours are a feature in these new levels and change the games color palette for each world.

As well as the original campaign in which Slime-San gets eaten by a worm, another of these campaigns is Blackbird’s Kraken which is essentially the same as the worm scenario, except this time players get eaten by a Kraken. This offers a different playing style due to being set underwater and even lets them control a Slime-San style submarine.

Sheeple’s Sequel will find players faced against a sheep that believes it’s an NPC inside of a video game and recodes himself to be the villain. Players will be faced with challenging levels, and with a field-of-vision implemented in some levels to make them harder.

The original Slime-San has been released for the Nintendo Switch, and we saw the announcement trailer for Slime-san: Superslime Edition land back in April. This edition marks the first time the title will be arriving onto PS4 and Xbox One.

The Slime-san: Superslime Edition will be available on June 22nd for Xbox One, and then four days later on the 26th June for PS4.
