Constructive Communication and CollaborationWay
— The Game's Tagline
is an sidescrolling experimental game made by Coco & Co (hence the tagline
) about bonding with a complete stranger to complete a series of simple tasks. While this is far from the first time this concept has been tried (Portal 2
famously employing it in co-op campaign), the game takes the concept to a whole new level by removing any form of spoken communication between players.
The game revolves around two players, a red Eskimo and a blue Arab, starting at the far ends of the map. After a brief bit of roaming around, the game splits into two screens, showing both the player and their companion. Using hand motions, simple grunts and facial expressions, players have to instruct their companion to complete tasks otherwise impossible to solve.
The game was famously played by DeceasedCrab
