Looking for a great couch co-op game to play with friends? Looking to lose said friends? Well you have come to the right place!
Developed by Montreal based developers Clever Endeavour, Ultimate Chicken Horse is a simple game with a twist. The aim of the game is to reach the flag at the other side of the level, but to do so you have to build the level yourself. Do you build a safe path to the flag? Or do you screw with your friends and line the map with nothing but spinning saws? How you play the game is entirely up to you.
I played the demo a few times with my friends and I can honestly say that Ultimate Chicken Horse was the most fun I have had with any multiplayer game in a long time. The demo available is for two multiplayer modes:
- Competitive Mode - Here you take turns to place obstacles in the level individually, then you take turns attempting the level.
- Party Mode - In this mode a party box will appear at the start of every round with a random selection of obstacles and you must place them in the level at the same time. You then all run through the level at the same time.
Another great thing about this game is that it’s entirely possible to play with a single controller. Each person can take turns in Competitive Mode using just the keyboard or a Xbox 360 controller.
I think this game has tonnes of charm and it would be a real shame if it wasn’t funded. There are only six days left to go, but it only needs $3,500(CAD) to be fully funded, so I urge everyone who reads this to consider pledging something.
