About us

Great couch coop games are hard to find? Not anymore!

We love couch coop games. Nothing beats the joy of sitting in the same room, playing some fun games and experiencing the reactions of your friends—especially at the moment, when you’re more often at home with your partner, family members or roommates. Sure, online multiplayer modes can also be fun, but couch coop has always been the best type of multiplayer games.

If you are like us, you play local multiplayer games on a regular basis, either with your kids or your friends. Every platform has some couch coop classics, for example “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe” or “Super Mario Party” on Nintendo Switch. While these couch coop games can be played over and over again, you may want to try something new from time to time. So, where do you find interesting, new titles? Sometimes you get great recommendations from friends, but most of the time you need to do your own research.

Most game stores like Steam, PlayStation/Microsoft Store or Nintendo eShop offer categories for local multiplayer games. However, they either feature just a handful of new games or list thousands of entries. Websites for couch coop games do exist, but they try to list them all, even the not-so-good ones. Gaming related blogs and magazines write about couch coop games from time to time, but it’s not their main subject. You probably don’t want to search on the internet for hours and hunt for hidden gems. You want to find great, new games without the hassle. That’s why we’ve came up with the idea for “Couch Coop Favorites”.

We’ve created lists with handpicked couch coop games—filterable by platform, player number and relevant features. On this website you can quickly find new games that has been tested by people like you. Save time on researching, spend more time with your friends and family.

We are two people who love couch coop games

We are Tabea und Patrick, both in our mid-20s and from Northern Germany. We have a deep passion for couch coop games and did a lot of research on the subject in our student days. We don’t know all titles, but we certainly know a lot of excellent games for different platforms and audiences. We regularly play games, but we still identify as casual gamers. We believe that not every gaming related site needs to look like it has been made for stereotypical gamers.

Our mission is simple: We want to bring joy to people looking for good couch coop games and we want to support indie developers, too.

We personally test every game

All games listed here are handpicked by us. We’re not paid by developers to feature their games. Developers often send us their games for free, but this doesn’t influence our opinon about these games. If we list a game, we genuinely like it. It’s that simple. No ads, no affiliate links, just good games.

Know a great game or found a typo?
