For downtime, I occasionally toy around with a small game that uses DanielSnd's COOP Action Game Kit. It does local, shared-screen multiplayer. On its thread, someone recently asked about online multiplayer, suggesting multiplayer games these days need to be online. I like to know your thoughts, especially given the recent resurgence of local multiplayer in games such as the highly-rated Nidhogg and PC Gamer's 2014 Multiplayer Game of the Year, Towerfall Ascension. Edge Magazine published an interesting article on this last year, saying that, despite a generation of gamers raised on Mario Kart, Smash Bros, and GoldenEye, but it goes on to highlight some games that do local multiplayer very well. Is there a future for local multiplayer? For better or worse, are the days of getting together in person to play games over?
