A downloadable game for Windows and Mac OS X

A prototype for a local multiplayer game idea i had in mind for quite some time.


Towers is a physical 2-player coop prototype, each player controlling a helicopter/bird/amoeba/something (not sure yet, lets call them flybees?) with a grappling hook.

The goal for the team is to stack as much blocks as high as possible by grappling and maneuvering them on top of each other. The blocks are too heavy for one flybee, so both players must act together.


You should really play this with two controllers (only tested with xbox controllers on mac) but you can use the keyboard as well:

W,A,S,D : player1 movement
Enter : player1 grappling hook

Arrow keys : player2 movement
Space : player2 grappling hook

Hint: Start the game or change the game mode by grappling the text.

I played with different game modes (time trail, time boni for stacked blocks,...). There's a config file, where you can modify different parameters.


I still like the idea but on hold currently because it's a pain in the ass to playtest a 2 player coop game.
