Developer thatgamecompany doesn't just deliver exceptional single player experiences, as there are also opportunities to share all of its innovative brilliance with friends. Up to four players can explore the watery joy of flOw using one PlayStation 3, while Journey offers a memorably unique co-operative adventure via PlayStation Network.
If you're online, at any point in the game you'll encounter another player to aid and accompany you for a short while - although you won't know who it is until you've reached the end of your unforgettable journey.
thatgamecompany also has three, bite-sized multiplayer surprises for you, each created during Game Jam, a yearly event where developers are challenged to create a game within a mere 24 hours. When you need a quick, addictive blast of gaming with friends, be sure to check these out:
Zombies have risen from their graves and you have to survive their onslaught and collect their skulls in this shooter for up to six players. Blow away the destructible terrain to get out of a tight fix and herd your rivals into groups of zombies to stay ahead.
You and up to three mates must recruit townspeople to gather gold and please the travelling king. Create warriors to wipe out your rivals' peasants and keep your towers stocked with gold to attract the king as quickly as possible.
This retro styled shooter pits you and up to six friends against the evil Nostril Shot and his army of shark men and ninja cats. Collect power-ups to improve your weapons and never stop shooting - even if it means giving your fellow space maidens a cheeky little blast in the process.
