We’ve recently been trying out a service called Parsec which allows you to stream a game and have friends play along remotely, and we’re happy to be able to give it the Official Powerhoof™ Severed Thumbs Up of Approval®!
Parsec lets you stream a game and have friends watch and play along with their own controllers. Latency was my biggest worry, but it wasn’t a problem when we played, certainly no worse than our dodgy indie implementation of online multiplayer would have been!
If you want to try it out yourself, there’s more details here.
Powerhoof Official Discord
In case you hadn’t noticed the fancy widget, we now have an official discord server. Come chat to us about things, or find someone to play Crawl with!
Now we’re on Switch we’ve gone 100% family friendly. No more ancient terrors and harrowing tentacled beasts, just wholesome fun, good cheer, and a jolly old time playing video games with your friends!
Okay, might be a slight touch of endless cosmic horror still in there…
We have our Switch version of Crawl all polished up and ready to go, launching just in time for Christmas woo!
What a pleasant surprise to have Nintendo put out this perfect little console for local multiplayer!
Switch is such a great match for Crawl, and I’m stoked to have a game coming out on a Nintendo console – 12 year old me would totally lose his mind over this, haha 🙂
Thanks for all the support, we have such a great community around this game, and I hope you have a blast with Crawl on the Switch!!
