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.

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
Keep up to date with development
For those unable to sign up to this beta, it is worth keeping an eye out for further announcements as the game goes into its final stages of production. Both the official Discord server and Twitter profile are where you can find the latest news about the game.
The Watchers has a planned release date of 2019 and can be added to your Steam wishlist on the official store page. The game will cost $5.99 for a single copy and $9.99 for a two-copy bundle.
