Tackle brutal co-op puzzles in The Watchers beta

Straight Back Games have announced their haunting online co-op puzzle game, The Watchers, will play host to a beta from October 31st to November 3rd on Steam (PC & Mac).

Take control of twins (brother and sister) as they search an abandoned cult headquarters for clues to the disappearance of their mother. In this unique duo co-op experience, players must combine strong communication and navigation skills to gather cursed objects and evade disturbing enemies.

Secure a spot in the beta

For access to The Watchers beta this Halloween, players can request a pair of keys by joining the official Discord server and joining the #beta-signup channel. Each successful signup will receive 2 keys so that they can play with a friend.

Frighteningly tough co-op puzzles

Duos will take on the roles of Frederico and Luisa to overcome a plethora of fiendish puzzles involving a strong sense of timing and skill. Make no mistake, The Watchers is hard.

“We wanted to make a game that really requires players to work together,” said game designer Joe Fender. “Think Dark Souls difficulty but now you have someone else to blame. There are no jump scares here – instead, we create horror through atmosphere and challenging puzzles.”

A family project

The Watchers is the first game from Straight Back Games, an independent game developer started in 2019 by Joe Fender and Luke Fanning. The developers’ passion for frustratingly difficult puzzles and exciting co-operative experiences was the drive behind its creation. Collaborators also include family members Andrew Fender (puzzle design), Hannah Headden (story and script) and Peter Fender (original music score).
