I’ve almost worked out all the issues related to local co-op! It’s been a huge undertaking, compared to other changes made to the game, but it feels AWESOME.
A friend of mine and I got together to play a few days ago to try it out, and record a video:
And in the few days since that video, many of the bugs have been fixed: the menus for equipping and upgrading your ship now work; you can now save and load games, binding controllers when you load; even minor issues like the weird color issue we mentioned in the video has been fixed!
The hard work is basically done; all that’s left is the details, and some thorough testing.
I hope to have a new version out in a week – possibly less!
