We just put up a NEW beta build with local co-op enabled in our “coop” channel (currently only for Windows. Mac build is in the works). This was a mode we had cut months before we shipped due to time constraints, but have since gone back to because it’s a lot of fun and felt worthwhile to take the time to complete.
This beta will run until Monday, May 2nd at 1 am EST, at which time we’ll shut down the build channel. Once we compile and implement all the feedback we’ll be back ASAP to officially release a new version of the game with co-op included!
To try it out for yourself right now:
Right click on Hyper Light in your Steam Library, then navigate to Properties>BETAS tab, click the drop down and select “coop”
You’ll need at least one controller
p1 can use KBM, p2 controller, or you can both use your own controllers.
To turn on co-op on, enter the pause menu, select “settings”, and the first option will be “Co-Op” to switch on or off.
You won’t earn achievements while playing in co-op.
We hope you have fun with this. Send any bugs or feedback to email@example.com. See you soon.
