The greatest challenges in co-op games do not come from the puzzles or monsters, but rather your fellow players as trying to coordinate difficult maneuvers often ends up feeling like herding cats. This is where the newly announced Rite of ILK steps in. You'll still be exploring and puzzling your way through a variety of locations, but you will have to do so while literally tied to the other player by a rope!

Besides ensuring that both players are on the same page, the rope will also serve as one of the main gameplay mechanics in Rite of ILK, often acting as both a hazard and as a way to solve tricky challenges. If you're wondering what this looks like in gameplay terms, I would suggest checking checking out the recently posted announcement trailer right below. Have a look, its quite interesting:

I would love to tell you more, but I'm afraid there is basically no other information available at this time - I can't even tell you when Rite of ILK will be releasing or what platforms it will be supporting! That said, if you would like to follow its development moving forward you should head over to the official website. And since I can offer you little else, allow me to send you off with a couple of colorful images:
