Local multiplayer games (>4 Pl.) which are not available on Steam (yet)

I 'd like to create a new thread for mentioning games which are not available on Steam (yet). If you don't want it here, just delete it.

The game 'BombSquad' can be played with up to 8 players on Windows/Mac, Android (TV).
I don't know if it is ok to post external links, so for Windows just google it or search for a video on YouTube. For Mac OS it is on the Mac App Store and for Android on Google Play and Amazon.

i never tried those phone-controlled games, how do they work? Do you need to be connected online or just in the same Wi-Fi network? :O

It depends on the implementation. Most games require the phones to be on the same network and be able to contact the computer hosting the game so internet caffé / public wifis don't normally work.

AirConsole games however work with phones on different networks.
You can try AirConsole for free with ads + some limitations and the first month of a subscription is free so you can try the games out and see which ones work well with phones.

Added: Defend The Night - 8 players[]
This 48 hour jam game has brilliant coop mechanics for up to 8 players and is enjoyable with 1 player as well.

It's a 2d side view game where you and your fellow astronauts attempt to fend off an alien invasion and save Earth. The astronauts can either control turrets or gather energy balls from blown up alien ships to power the defensive force shield or power the AI turrets (number of AI turrets vary with number of local players). To deal with the tougher alien space ships, astronauts first have to dodge bullets and fly to the sensitive spots on a ship to disable the ship's powershield so that the turrets can shoot it down.
Also when a player dies the other astronauts have the possibility of reviving him/her.

It currently needs some deadzone added to the analog controls, working fullscreen mode and ability to tell players apart. The dev is aware of these things and is planning an update.

I recommend to check it out.

EDIT: There is now an update which fixes deadzone for analog controls and enables fullscreen wilth Alt + Enter.

EDIT2: Update 1 and 2 of the game only detect 4 XInput gamepads (Jam version detected 8). Hopefully next update will fix this.
