- Today Producer and Studio Head Sian Yue Tan
has shared a video reveal of the new Rocketbirds: Couch Co-Op Mode for PlayStation Network.
To quote: After its triple nomination at the 2010 Independent Games Festival, the Rocketbirds universe is finally approaching release - and only on PSN.
Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken takes you on a cinematic platform adventure through Albatropolis.
In the single-player mode, you're Hardboiled Chicken, the original Coq of War, on a mission to hunt down the Penguin's corrupt leader, Putzki. Along the way you'll have to kill many Penguins, solve puzzles, incite revolution, and maybe possibly pilot a few jetpacks.
Today I'd like to share a bit about the game's two-player couch co-op mode, since we are particularly happy with the way it's turned out. But first, check out some gameplay in our new Rocketbirds co-op video.
We had always wanted a couch co-op mode for the game ever since we started development on the PS3 (because, well, co-op is fun), but didn't know how and if it would work for our non-scrolling platformer. Simple questions needed answering, such as; "What should happen when one player leaves the current screen the other one is still on it?"
