Call us cute or call us crazy, but we love Valentine’s Day. It’s a great excuse to gift your loved ones all the chocolate in the world –which you can share/steal/wage war for (delete as applicable!). You can even gift a gaming bundle to match up your gear. And if you need more ideas, you can find them all in our Valentine's Day gift guide for gamers.

But it’s not all about gifts and glamour. Valentine’s is about showing affection for your loved one. And what better way for gaming couples then a couch co-op date night, right?

We know settling on a game can be like going to war. So, to save you tearing your lover’s hair out, we’ve done the hard work for you. Here’s our top 5 co-op games for couples.

It Takes Two

Okay, if you’ve played this one before – hear us out.

Close your eyes, get comfortable, and let go of your surroundings. Now, imagine a world where Pixar remake Honey I Shrunk The Kids. And Tim Burton’s directing it. Got it? Great, that’s the best way to describeIt Takes Two.

You play as a husband-and-wife duo who’ve been turned into a pair of dolls by their grieving daughter, who’s unhappy to hear you’re divorcing. There’re self-help books guiding you, puzzles to solve together, and ultimately a family to save.

Sure, it’s a sad one. But it’s brilliant for bonding with your lover and letting go of the small things.


Remember those days in school, when your teacher set aside time to create cute arts and crafts for our crushes? Remember when it was like your favourite thing to do?

If you answered yes, Snipperclips is the game for you. Perfect for crafty couples and puzzle-solving partners, you control a 2D character with the ability to cut and paste pieces out of each other. By using this, you’ll create whole new worlds of shapes to solve puzzles and complete objectives.

Sure, it’s simple. But it’s sweet. And when it comes to Valentines Day, who doesn’t want a cosy night-in cutting cute shapes?


KeyWe is all about being cute and creative as a couple. It’s a great metaphor for the struggles and stresses of settling down, as well as the rewards and benefits of being the best team together.

You star as Jeff and Debra, two kiwi birds working in a postoffice. With no hands to help you, you must jump, flap, peck and butt-slam your way across an interactive landscape of levers, bells and buttons to make sure messages get delivered on time.

This postal puzzler is filled-to-the-brim with unlockable outfits, crazy situations, and buckets of laughter. And it’s educational for couples – it’ll teach you the perks (or terrors!) of teamwork.
