Hello everyone! Here at ACE Team we're always happy to come up with surprises and cool updates for our titles. Our latest crazy creation is adding 4 player local coop for The Deadly Tower of Monsters! ohmy.gif

Given the complexity of this new update, we are first delivering the content as a Beta build, available to anyone who owns the game. Once the build has been found to be stable, we will pass it on to the "main branch" as part of the full game. The Beta build can easily be accessed by doing the following:

1) Select the game on Steam, right click and choose 'Properties'.
2) Go to the 'Betas' tab
3) Select the Beta from the Drop down list.
4) We recommend verifying the integrity of game cache after selecting the Beta, to make sure you download that branch. ('Local Files' tab -> 'Verify integrity of game cache').

*When launching the Beta, the game should appear as v1.04
**If you want to return to the regular branch, just choose 'None' in the 'Betas' tab

Q&A:

Q: Why is this local coop only?
A: This was a crazy feature we added by toying around with the code which started out as something that the programmers did for fun. An online mode would require reprogramming an important part of the game and is not feasible. This isn't something that was meant to be a feature of the game.

Q: Will you ever add online?
A: No. This would require remaking a substantial part of the game's code. Local coop is much more simple.

Q: How does this affect the game's story / campaign / game mechanics?
A: The game wasn't designed or balanced with coop in mind, so many things about the coop are just things that needed to be done in a specific way in order not to break the game entirely. Player 1 still controls the main camera. Other players get to play with the character that player 1 chooses. Player 1 chooses when you can aim down (due to the camera change) ...Etc... etc. There are several obvious limitations in the coop's implementation (because the game was created strictly as a single-player experience), however the 4 player coop is hilarious and extremely fun.

We hope everyone enjoys the new content!
