TowerFall Ascension unlocks later today (around 2:00 PDT) on both PlayStation 4 and PC, setting free the once OUYA exclusive local-multiplayer arrow shooting game. Little do gamers realize what they'll soon have unleashed upon themselves. Easily the best game offered on the OUYA, TowerFall will undoubtedly find a very healthy audience of couch-coop fans. It's a beautiful thing, how TowerFall encourages us to game together.
What first left its mark on me is seeing TowerFall during a convention. I can't remember where I saw it first, but I do remember that I never saw a controller sitting idle. A horde of gamers surrounded the small four-person couch cheering and patiently waiting for their next round. Then I saw the exact same thing at the next event I visited, and the next and the next and so on. Never once was a controller idle. TowerFall is that kind of game.
Pick of TowerFall Ascension, now with a huge single-player or co-op "Quest" mode and dozens of new maps and features, for PlayStation 4 or PC. Oh and it's also available on OUYA still, too! Price hasn't been clarified yet, but I think this one is going to be hard to pass up no matter the price. Well, as long as you've got four controllers for your platform of choice already.
