Online Coop using Parsec



Hi,

Playing Tachyon Project co-operatively can be a lot of fun but you need to have your friend at home with you to play it. That's ideal but not always the case.

Thanks to the wonderful people at Parsec it's now possible to play Tachyon Project online co-op. They have developed a free tool that makes this possible and it works pretty well! Parsec basically lets you stream a game, and have friends watch and play along with their own controllers... ok keyboard (but who plays a twin-stick shooter with the keyboard and the mouse, right? ;) ).

The app is not only free, but very easy to set up and use:

  1. Download the client from http://parsecgaming.com.
  2. Run the app and create an account. Your friends need to do the same.
  3. If you want to host the party, click "Add A Computer", and use your own computer or rent a cloud computer from Parsec.
  4. To join a friend who's hosting, add them using their Parsec username, and request to Co-Play.
  5. The host can now run Tachyon Project and the rest will be able to play as if they were sitting next to them!

If you have any issues with Parsec, jump on over to their Discord here.

Cheers,
Eduardo

About This Game

Tachyon Project is a dual stick shooter heavily inspired by classic shoot'em ups. We’ve combined many unique enemy types, a large variety of weapons and power-ups with innovative gameplay to ensure a long lasting challenge and discovery at every new level.

In Tachyon Project you take control of Ada, a software program that has taken conscience and that was designed to hack into the most secure servers on Earth. After some rather mysterious events, Ada is thrown out of the test server where it was living and out into the Internet, but when she tries to go back there she finds she's unable to. She'll then start a journey to uncover the truth behind what happened to her creators, which she considers her parents. In the process she'll find out that things were a bit more complex than she initially thought.

The game provides an interesting story mode where you go unlocking new weapons, secondary weapons and perks as you progress and uncover the story behind Ada's creation. But you can also play on challenges that present you with unending hordes of enemies to try for the best score and compete in leaderboards. You can play these challenges either alone or with friends in up to 4 player local multiplayer co-operative games.

Tachyon Project also brings new ideas to the table, presenting a new stealth mode in some levels where you have to pick carefully when to shoot to avoid being discovered too early and keep yourself disguised.
