Back in February, The Good Mood Creators revealed their new action platformer Mekazoo. In it, you play as one of five animals, defending your world from the invading insectoids. Initially, we thought that this might just be a single-player game, but, with all those Mekanimals to choose from, it would seem a waste to not include a multiplayer option surely?

Well, The Good Mood Creators have revealed that Mekazoo will have a local multiplayer and as if that wasn’t exciting enough, it will be making it’s debut at PAX Prime in Seattle on the sixth floor, booth 6517 at the end of August.

In the cooperative multiplayer each player controls one Mekanimal with the inactive player controlling the switch option. There’s a cause for the spirit of cooperation if ever I saw it.

The reception to Mekazoo at shows like SXSW and GDC has been overwhelmingly positive and we are thrilled so many people are eagerly anticipating its release. The most common request we’ve received is for local cooperative multiplayer, so we’re proud to announce PAX Prime attendees will have the first opportunity to try it.

Mekazoo will be available early in 2016.
