The tale of a mother and son on a quest to find a cure, Together: Amna & Saif is an upcoming puzzle game for PC (Mac, Linux TBA) featuring purely cooperative gameplay. More than two people playing together, Mount Olympus Games has designed every aspect to foster interaction, reliance, and empathy between people.
A loved one has fallen deathly ill and the only chance of a cure lies deep within a mysterious forest. Only together as mother and son, Amna and Saif, can players journey through the trials of the landscape and past the great beasts of the forest to find the cure in time.
Successfully funded through an ongoing Kickstarter campaign, Together: Amna and Saif is a couch co-op, puzzle-adventure game focused on interdependence and building rewarding relationships. Gameplay encourages not only cooperation, but empathy between players by removing the emotional barriers of competition, player-specific special abilities, and violence.
Together: Amna & Saif exemplifies the benefits that gaming can have on a relationship. It goes beyond mere conversations and teamwork between players to highlight interdependence; a key quality of rewarding and successful relationships.
