For those that are unsure of what TowerFall is, here is quick description of the title sourced from the blog post: "Inspired by classics from the golden age of couch multiplayer, TowerFall centers around hilarious, intense versus matches - best played against friends, sitting cross-legged on the floor within punching distance of each other. The core mechanics are simple and accessible, but hard to master, with a huge amount of gameplay variants, arrow types, power-ups, and levels. And when you need a break from the competition, team up in 1-4 player co-op modes, where you'll fight off a wide variety of monsters, enemy archers, and bosses."
