Each & Other's Problematic Adventure

Your rating: None Average: 2.9 (26 votes)

Each & Other's Problematic Adventure is a two-player game in which the players play the part of Each and Other while they try to outrun their problems. It's a time-ridden climbing game in which the two players must collaborate to reach the top of each level avoiding being caught by the wave of problems that crawls up behind them at a speed that is proportional to their proximity to one another.

The adjective incorporated in the game is “Persistent”, which is represented here by both the persistence of Each and Other in surpassing their Problems, and the persistence of the game environment itself against the destructive power of the wave of Problems.

The main mood aspects are Urgency, Desperate Collaboration against a common enemy and Survival in a unstable environment. All of them used to strengthen the Persistence aspect of the game.
