Description
Release date: Q2-Q3 2017


Tied Together is a 2-4 player local co-op party game. The players are physically tied together demanding next level co-op skills. Tied Together is a 2D game which features four lab monsters seeking to get back outside in the beautiful outdoors. The monsters are tied together, and all monsters must work together in order to escape. 

WEAKEST LINK
You know the saying: a chain is as strong as the weakest link? This principle is what the game is designed on. Each level requires cooperation and coordination to complete. Got a troll in your team? Just kick him along with you!

LOCAL CO-OP
For now the game features local co-op only. But we have made this as easy as possible, the game supports several ways to play: Up to 4 players on one keyboard, Up to 4 players on controllers, Up to 4 players on a mobile device. Or a mix of the above. For example: 2 people could play on one keyboard, 1 on a controller and one on a mobile device (smartphone / tablet).




When we get through Greenlight we need to integrate the SteamWorks SDK into the game. We currently have around 30 levels which need some love with balancing them out.

All levels we made have been made with our own Level editor. We would love to release this level editor to the community and integrate it with the Steam Workshop. This will have a very high priority for us. Currently the level editor is very rough and can only be used internally.

A co-op game deserves online multiplayer, we know this and we are looking into it. We have done several tests but it is a complex subject. Our rope system is totally physics based and that is hard to synchronize between several machines. We can't promise anything but we would love to make it work.

A glimpse of the level editor


Tied Together has been in development for approximately a year and a half. We have showcased the game at quite a few events and are ready to release it to the public.

@ToxicGamer the gameplay is the same but we'll have more levels for the steam version, plus steam workshop support so the users can submit and play community levels!

Excellent game for two, full of fun and funny gameplay! The demo is different from the full game?

This game looks legendary. Maybe add some competitive edge to keep it interesting? Like maybe there's coins and everybody has a seperate coin count?
