With the way things are right now, it looks we’re all going to be spending a lot of time indoors with our respective families. So what better time to introduce your loved ones to the joy of couch co-op games that you can play in the same room together? Here are some of our favorites!
Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows,
If you’re up for a dose of some good ol’ fairytale magic to lift your spirits, you might want to try the Trine series out for size. In Trine, you and two other friends and family members play as either a wizard, a thief, and a knight as you solve physics-based puzzles with amazing abilities and uncover the secret of the mystic artifact called the Trine.
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Android, iOS,
What better way to take your mind off things than by playing as an octopus masquerading as a dad? That’s exactly what you’ll get with Octo-dad! As an added bonus, there’s also a 4-player co-op mode where you control each of the Octo-dad’s tentacles as he tries to accomplish real-life dad things like making breakfast or hosting a barbeque! Fun for the whole Octo-family!
Since it’s not exactly ideal to go outside and play some hoops right now, there’s no better time to try some video game alternatives to that hard court action. May we suggest: Regular Human Basketball which lets you and a bunch of friends pilot a giant mech and use boosters and magnets to shoot and score against your other robo-opponent—you know, just like regular humans do it.
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows
Maybe raiding tombs, solving ancient puzzles and retrieving priceless artifacts is more your household’s jam? Then you’re in luck! Crystal Dynamics has a couple of fun, bite-sized co-op Lara Croft adventures perfect for you and yours! Just watch out for the giant boulder traps and the mummies; there are always mummies.

Cooking meals together with the family has never been this fun or competitive! In Overcooked, you get to prepare and serve dishes as chefs in the craziest, zaniest situations possible. Candlelit mineshaft? Yup. Two hot air balloons linked by a tiny walkway? Yup. Tiny kitchens on rafts cruising through a river? You betcha! Make and break bread as well as friendships!
Platforms: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita
Blast aliens and defend Super Earth from annihilation with your loved ones using an awesome arsenal of weapons, equipment, and abilities that you call from the sky. If you’ve ever wanted to live out your space-faring, Starship Troopers-fantasy give Helldivers a shot.

We know the title is exactly what a lot of us are trying to do at this point but if you’re the type of people that just loves hardcore survival strats then you’ll find something to like in Don’t Starve Together. Seek out resources, build a base, fight off monsters and for the love of bob, don’t starve together!
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Macintosh operating systems, Wii U, Microsoft Windows, Linux
Do you want to release some of that pent up aggression? Gang Beasts is really good for that! Despite having a simple enough control scheme, Gang Beasts is basically a fighting game that operates on the sheer power of will of the players. Battle against your family and other quarantine-mates across a variety of fun stages wrestle and slam your stress away!
Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Macintosh operating systems, Microsoft Windows
When the chips are down, you can’t go wrong with the classics. Castle Crashers is a fun and zany off-the-walls 2D Beat-em-up that’ll just absolutely devour your time playing. Save the princesses and the kingdom while upgrading your cute and kooky characters.
Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, Linux, macOS, Macintosh operating systems
Perhaps space-faring, sci-fi is more your family’s light speed? In which case, Lovers in a Dangerous Space Time will have you set your phasers to fun! You and your crew pilot a large, love powered starship to the vast reaches of love-space/time. It’s chaotic, It’s hectic but it’s also a lot of good positive fun, which we all kind of need right now.
