Local Coop-Mode

With Update we are adding an extensive new feature to Striving for Light. A local multiplayer coop-mode. And here is how it looks in action.

New Features

Local Coop-Mode

You will now find a mysterious stone in town. Interacting with this stone lets you synchronise your actions with the humming of the stone to connect with another player to start the local coop-mode. Starting the coop mode will slightly empower enemies. You can enter and exit the new coop-mode also no existing runs whenever and however you like. You can activate coop for an already existing run play in coop for a few hours and then turn of coop and continue solo.

In this coop mode each player gets a specific role (range or melee) and the skill tree as well as the resources are shared between both players. Therefore strategic gameplay as well as a new way of theorycrafting your builds is mandatory to master the coop-mode.

Coop-Mode for now will not get an own leaderbord as balancing should mostly remain comparable with the non-coop mode.


  • Fixed wrong displayed melee weapon damage in weapon pick up stats
  • Improved layering in gatekeeper arenas to make all skill effects visible. Some skills previously got hidden behind the ground layer of the gatekeeper arena.
  • Fixed lightning staff projectiles not triggering scattering projectiles or other projectile related skills.
  • Fixed a crash related to skill gem placement on controller input.
