#19 Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes
- Developer: Steel Crate Games
- Publisher: Steel Crate Games
- Platforms: PC, PS4, NS, XBO
- Release: October 8, 2015
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a fantastic party game that will require at least two players to join in. The game supports both keyboard and mouse along with gamepads, but arguably the best way to enjoy the game is with a virtual reality headset.
Within the game, one player will have control of a bomb and must seek the help from their teammates to decipher codes. If you decipher all the codes and finish the puzzles all while being under the time limit, the bomb will be defused saving everyone.
#18 Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris
- Developer: Crystal Dynamics
- Publisher: Square Enix
- Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
- Release: December 9, 2014
The sequel to Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris offers a new action-adventure for a group of friends to go through. This title plays out similar to its predecessor which is a non-linear arcade style action-adventure where Lara Croft, Carter, Isis, and Horus who are set off to defeat an evil deity known as Set.
Played in an isometric camera view, up to four players can join in to go through the narrative campaign which involves combat and puzzle solving.
#17 Team Sonic Racing
- Developer: Sumo Digital
- Publisher: Sega
- Platforms: PS4, PC, XBO, NS
- Release: May 21, 2019
In 2019 we got Team Sonic Racing which only features characters and locations found within the various Sonic the Hedgehog titles. Players will find that the characters featured are broken down into classes that will either emphasize on areas such as speed or power. Likewise, there are over twenty different tracks which again are designed by the different levels found in the main Sonic titles.
An area that you may find of interest with this game is that the developers included a cooperative gameplay mode which puts players into teams. From there they will race alongside each other as they attempt to win races that factor in how well the team actually works together. Instead of having players simply cross the finish line in first, players will have to work together throughout the race such as providing each other power-ups when needed.
#16 A Way Out
- Developer: Hazelight Studios
- Publisher: EA Originals
- Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
- Release: March 23, 2018
A Way Out is an action-adventure journey from Hazelight Studios. This will be the second video game to be directed by Josef Fares who you may be familiar with from his previous title, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.
This is a unique action-adventure video game as it will require two players with the display being split-screen regardless of playing the video game locally or through online. All-in-all, the narrative is based around two inmates who must survive and escape a prison. Their stories will be told simultaneously and while one character may be in a cutscene, the other will be able to freely move and execute their tasks.
