Are you able to think about getting two birds to sort out misery messages utilizing quite a few units which can be dotted round a big space? Sound wild? Nicely, in KeyWe, you get to tackle this problem.
I acquired my arms on a couple of rounds of KeyWe at EGX and had a beautiful time with it, and am excited to check out the sport with my complete household. Hopefully we’re capable of work nicely collectively! It’s a multiplayer cooperative recreation the place you and your pal race across the display screen, attempting to work collectively to sort out a message earlier than the timer ticks away. Some typing requires each of you to press buttons – like when you have to use a capital letter – whereas different bits of typing, like particular person letters, will be carried out by simply considered one of you. Both approach, you’re each operating across the display screen, seeking to full the foolish messages that come up on the display screen.
Usually, these messages don’t actually say something vital, however studying them isn’t actually the aim. It’s extra about leaping round to search out the letters, rapidly attending to them and shouting out to your companion that you’ll do a letter and they need to get the subsequent letter, and so forth. There’s lots of yelling and lots of communication for those who don’t need to end up backspacing letters and restarting whole phrases. The world in KeyWe is a enjoyable one, because it takes place on a large desk with letter keys speckled round in all places. Very in contrast to a keyboard the place you most likely know the place all of the letters are.
The birds in KeyWe are additionally totally customisable, supplying you with totally different skins and hats, that are fairly a delight to discover and unlock. The sport itself feels polished – a kind of easy, but enjoyable video games to play along with your loved ones. An expertise filled with chaos and delight available as you mess around with it.
