War for the Overworld, Evil Genius, Dungeons 2, and others also join the festivities!

Being bad can be so damn good. The most fortunate of us learned this the right way: from videogames. It was twenty years ago when , a game considered by many as the unofficial, slightly delayed Dungeon Keeper 3. As huge fans of Bullfrog’s classics, the studio recently posted this extensive celebratory piece, where they not only remind us of Dungeon Keeper’s legacy, but also share their own memories of it and talk about how it inspired the creation of War for the Overworld. It is quite the nostalgic read for all dungeon managers out there.

Other games took the core concept of controlling a mischievous evil-doer and put their own spin on it, both in setting and gameplay. Evil Genius, which turns us into a fabulously colorful supervillain, and Ghost Master, which gives us a team of ghoulish creatures to terrorize the living with, are both prime examples of that.

For more straightforward fantasy, however, look no further than Overlord + Raising Hell, which lets us spread mayhem by directly controlling our dark lord, and the maliciously charming Dungeons 2.

The Special Sale will last until July 3, 10PM UTC.

Couch co-op, one of our most time-honored traditions. There are few ways to game that are equally social, few battlefields as intense as our couches, and few gaming memories as vivid and nostalgic as those side-by-side with our friends.

The robust co-op campaign in Nex Machina got us in that couch co-op mood again, so we got together with our favorite authority on the subject – the team at

While there’s certainly advantages to living in a gaming era that emphasizes online co-op, couch co-op games will always hold a special place in many of our hearts. Therefore, we (the folks at Co-Optimus) were extremely pleased when the recently released Nex Machina brought back this nostalgic experience in fine form. As a game developed with local co-op as a core focus, Nex Machina absolutely thrives. That got us thinking about how PC games with strong couch co-op experiences can sometimes be difficult to find, so we compiled a list of our absolute top picks of couch co-op games on GOG, presented in no particular order.

Nex Machina


[ Co-Optimus Review (4/5) ]

Nex Machina is a twin-stick shooter with simple goals, but tough-to-master levels. The story basically boils down to “kill enemies, rescue humans,” but the layers of strategy more than make up for the lack of narrative depth as they make the game highly addictive and replayable. While the game is satisfying in solo play, Nex Machina truly shines in its two-player local co-op mode. Players can take full advantage of tactics that need two characters (e.g. using one player to bait enemies while the other focuses on saving humans), not to mention the quick and rapid gameplay lends itself perfectly for couch co-op as players chase the leaderboards together.
