Not so much response in here...
When I was younger, I use to play, like always, with my little brother, multiplayer games. Super Mario Kart, Donkey Kong Country, then, Timesplitters 2, Smash Bros and of course GoldenEye (but I'd prefer Perfect Dark :p)
Now... there's not so much local multi. It's a social world - as "they" say - but social with random people you don't know and mostly don't want to know.
I kinda missed the "old times". It's called a "key feature" to have local multi now. It was normal back then.
Worst recent example : Need for Speed Hot pursuit. It was thought to be a local multi game (like on ps1/2), cops VS bad guyz. But no, only online multiplayer.
So, I wish there's more game with local multi ('cause our screens got bigger too !) but it's not the tendancies.
Recent indie(-like ?) game with local multi I loved ? Trine 1&2. Jamestown was really good too.
And... yep, I don't remember a lot of games with LM in it. Sad
If you have some games to share !
Now that I'm a grown up man, I make (indie) games. With some friends, we opened our studio recently : SillyCat Studio
And we just released on Android devices (soon iOS) our first game : Mothership Touch Battle
I remembered your name, you're the one who sent us an email after submitting our game to TheIndieMine
And, to stay on the subject, we made a LOCAL MULTIPLAYER ONLY (it's not a really good choice to sell a game, but hey, wanted to do a game where you play with your friends).
We added a simple Solo Mode to train you.
Our intention was to bring back the local multiplayer on tactiles devices. We missed that so we made one
Hope some people will like it.
