39 days to Mars
Want to go on an adventure to conquer Mars with your significant other? In any case, this is the life that Sir Albert Wicks and Clarence Buster chose to live in 39 Days on Mars. These two explorers thought they had the resources, both mental and material, to easily get to the red planet. But things don’t go as planned, and the couple find themselves in the middle of a tangled situation that could very well cost them their lives. To get HMS Froussard up and running, the two satellites will have to work together more effectively than ever. But be careful, their time is running out. Only thirty-nine days separate them from certain death.

Arise: A Simple Story – Definitive Edition
What could be better than a short story full of emotions to share a romantic day? Especially since Arise: A Simple Story is about love, albeit a very painful one. The Piccolo Studio game does open after you die. Become a kind of ghost, you are held hostage by time, and it invites you to experience certain memories, from the happiest to the most painful. You are invited to travel to the country of the heart and mind. If the latter is punctuated by puzzles to be solved, then, above all, thanks to its emotions and authenticity, it transports you for several hours. Although, unlike the other games on this list, Arise: A Simple Story was not originally intended to be a two-player game, it is nonetheless a pleasure to live in together.

Does your family put pressure on you to know when the baby is due? You disagree on this issue and are looking for new arguments to tip the scales in favor of “nope” ? Baby Storm may be the experience for you. Throwing you into the chaos of a nursery, the name Baby Corp has something to make you want to participate in a demographic downturn. Among the screams, diapers and potties, life in the nursery is not like a long calm river. Your duty is simple: in every possible and unimaginable way to prevent your little ones from crying. A very difficult task, but fortunately you will be able to help each other and, if you have an insane desire to reproduce, train for a future life as parents (if the game does not disgust you with fatherhood).

Co-op Play on the Couch Vol. 2
Want to test a few small different experiences together? Co-op Play on the Couch Vol. 2 have something to satisfy your desires. It focuses on local co-op action games and offers four games at 85% off. Suffice it to say that the level of value for money will be provided to you. But what does this little package contain? For arcade lovers, first we have Bleed, a fast-paced action game. Rather, it attracts travel and myths, the direction of Shihondo is the Eater of Souls; intense Korean shooter. We stay in the shooter with Black Paradox, a horizontal scrolling game that will remind you of the classics of yesteryear. And as a result, we get a completely different game: Vertical Drop Heroes, a platformer with RPG and rogue-like elements. As you already understood, in Couch Co-Op Bundle Vol. 2. Please note that the promotion will expire soon, so try it now or never.

ibb and obb
Don’t be fooled by its simplistic appearance. ibb & obb was designed to make your brain work, and it does the job brilliantly. Like Snipperclips, it invites you to complete different levels on one condition: that you both successfully complete the puzzles presented to you. They are based on a very specific element: gravity. By learning it and putting it to good use, you will be able to move forward in this colorful little world. ibb & obb is a two player game only. If you can find an unknown helper online, it was especially believed that the game can be divided into two on the couch. If you are looking for a game like this to enjoy and the puzzles don’t scare you, now is the time to crack as the game has dropped below the €2 mark.

- Price: €1.49 until June 1, 2022 (otherwise €14.99).
We are in a somewhat special case. KUUKYOMI: Think! is one of those video game UFOs that will leave a lot of people on the floor. Just take a look at its exquisite artwork to see that the name G-MODE is unique. Presenting you with a hundred everyday life problems (or not) to solve, KUUKYOMI: Think! first of all seeks to determine whether you are caring or not. And what better way to make sure of this than to be accompanied by your other half? By adding the two-player mode, the developers also explicitly stated that they hope to see players “build a harmonious and nurturing relationship” as they move forward in KUUKIYOMI: Consider It! Please note that this game has two sequels: KUUKIYOMI 2: Think Again! – New era and KUUKIYOMI 3: think about it more and more!! – Father to son (also on sale at the same price).

- Price: €2.19 until June 7, 2022 (otherwise €4.39).
A shift is happening
Shift Happens is a bit like Human: Fall Flat, isn’t it? However, if you’re expecting a sandbox game like No Brakes Games, we’ll have to stop you right now. In gameplay, Shift Happens is closer to Unravel. As is often the case with two-player co-op games, this is truly a puzzle game. In Jelly, Bismo, and Plome skins, you’ll have to use your abilities wisely, which means being able to change your size and other features at will. Thus, in four themed locations, you will have to cooperate (although the desire to betray each other is sometimes tempting) to move forward and overcome this game. Discussion and coordination will be the key words to fulfill this noble mission.

- Price: €1.49 until May 21, 2022 (otherwise €14.99).
We end with a true collaboration classic: Unravel Two. You may have never heard of this little nugget published by Electronic Arts. If so, a little reminder is in order. As the name suggests, Unravel Two is the sequel to Unravel, the first puzzle game to feature little Yarnis. These little furry creatures must evolve in hostile and sometimes inaccessible lands. Therefore, in order to move forward, it is necessary to show speed and ingenuity. A simple concept, but brilliantly executed, both in terms of the puzzles and the little story that takes place in the background. When Unravel Two comes out, the principle has already been proven. And yet, the developers at Coldwood Interactive managed to surprise us with a small detail that makes a big difference: Unravel Two is an adventure designed to be played together for two players. Whether in substance or form, the game is a success and even stands out as one of the classic two-player games. That’s why we couldn’t remove it from this list, even if you have to hurry to offer it to you on sale. This will end on Monday.
