Nightingale stands out from the co-op survival game crowd with compelling world-building and the power to create and explore your own magical realms

Games and umbrellas don’t usually collide, but I’ve thought more about umbrellas in the last few days than I have in my entire life.  It all began when I found one inside a chest in Nightingale’s tutorial area, though I only discovered how useful it could be much later. This kind of sums up Nightingale, which launches on Steam early access next week. Let me expand.

As soon as I entered the game, my survival muscle memory kicked in and I immediately started hunting for sticks and stones, and anything else I could pick up, without any real knowledge of what I’d need it for, but knowing that I would. As far as basic survival mechanics go, Nightingale isn’t breaking the mould—and it took me a little while to discover and then appreciate what it is going for.
