Introducing Haven, a co-op RPG starring a pair of lovers

    
13

I can speak from some level of experience that gaming with your significant other is a good time, so the reveal of Haven is pretty much right up my alley. Developed by The Game Bakers, the same studio behind 2016’s hack-and-slash bullet hell game Furi, Haven promises a romantic story about “everyday love.”

Details on gameplay are a bit scant, but one screenshot shared from the game seems to suggest that it will feature some form of turn-based combat with the two playable characters simultaneously taking their actions. There’s also word that Haven will feature either single-player or couch co-op – so multiplayer at least, but not an MMO. As for the setting, the game casts you as a pair of escaped lovers who are on a lost planet of floating islands.

Haven is expected to launch some time in 2020 according to its Steam page. A vague but rather lovely teaser trailer is after the jump.

Couch co-op isnt what most gamers these days consider to be “multiplayer”

By definition it is, but with the invention of the internet, oh so many years back, most gamers come to expect “multiplayer” to mean playing with 1 more people online, not restricted to the same screen/system/couch.

its unfortunate. Id play this with my wife, but only if we each got to run it on our separate computers. Sharing a screen is awful in most games. Too restrictive.

Maybe the point is staying on the same screen as passionate luvers.

I thought they were both women at first an was about to say “Hey, they stole our characters!” :)

I wish I could like this. I feel like I’m being spoiled by The Orville, lately, with all of its unusual relationships. An innately gay race (including a decently thoughtful inversion of heteronormative relationships), dances with robots, and all that. It just leaves me hungry for more. More!

Why couldn’t they have been gay robots?

That’s what it’s like to be part of a starved demographic, though! Not a point I believe a lot of folks will be able to relate to, but I am me. And I lament doubly so as those oddly hued environments are quite lovely.

I’m honestly kind of blown away by reading this in regards to something that Seth MacFarlane helms. Maybe I should give it a shot after all.

I am not a romantic type though. :(

…but it looks okay I thinks. o.O

I’m biromantic but this is a bit too heteronormative for me so I’m a little left by the wayside, too. But pretty though, yes!

Two lovers pave a beautiful love together. An everlasting tale of two people made one as they take a fantastic journey creating strip malls on an unknown world.

…with Pizza Huts and Taco Bells all in little rows. O.o

I… okay. I mean, sure. That’d be a pretty great subversion.

And with their union cast upon their bonds and vows, they spake the word to call forth their HYPERFLEET OF GIANT, AUTOMATED, TRANSFORMING MINING FACTORY STARSHIPS. It was a BUSINESS relationship, suckers!

…I think Steven Universe beat me to this, come to think of it. Well, except for the transforming factory starships.

We’ve played lots of games together, but never any of these specifically “for-couples” couch co-op ones. Haven does look so atmospheric and relaxing that I want to keep my eye on it.

That’s different. It’s cute with pretty stylized graphics. I’ll keep an eye out for it as I’m curious as to what sort of gameplay it will have.

I’m glad they are finally making a game for couples who like to do lawn care together.
