Developed by Team17 Digital Ltd, Overcooked 2 serves up a delectable co-op cooking experience set in the craziest kitchens imaginable.

Chapeau is a charming, whimsical, hat-wearing, and quirky puzzle-solving game by Salt Castle Studio. The game throws you into a world where hats reign supreme. You play as a lovable character on a quest to retrieve your stolen hat. You journey through colorful landscapes filled with challenges and secrets.

7. Bopl Battle

Bopl Battle Announcement Trailer

Bopl Battle can pass as Pool Party's closest relative: a sister, maybe a brother, but from a different lineage. Like the upcoming title, you play as a ball but are made of gloop. The 2D brawler has you facing off with other slime opponents using special abilities. You can either use a rocket engine to send them flying across the world or summon a black hole that swallows the entire stage. 

The striking difference is the use of slime mechanics. Unlike Pool Party, where you can roll outside the arena, in Bopl Battle, you can stick to the platforms, which will return you to the arena. 

6. Overcooked! All You Can Eat

Overcooked! All You Can Eat - Announcement Trailer | PS5

Nothing screams chaos like cooperative culinary games. Overcooked! All You Can Eat is a bundled package of all the games in the Overcooked series, plus the DLC. It's not a new game, but it includes new levels and a refreshing cast of characters. The games start similarly: a ridiculous food-based monster comes to life after a catastrophic event.

As the titular protagonist, you don't have the skills at first to take down this monster. However, after training, which is a series of cooking challenges, you finally learn the ropes. The game tests your patience, speed, and team coordination. It might have a cartoonish appeal, but things do get intense. 

5. Make Way

Make Way - Launch Trailer | PS5 & PS4 Games

Away from the kitchen, it's time to burn rubber and shift gears in Make Way. Developed by Ice BEAM, Make Way is a multiplayer racing game played from a top-down perspective. The game's title hints at the gameplay, where you make your racetrack. There is no limit to how creative you can get. 

Every race starts with up to four players selecting random track items. Once every player has theirs, the next race is to lay the pieces together to create a track. This technique gives a new perspective to each race—no need to master the tracks. However, the game boosts your racing with rockets or mines to attack opponents. You can also push them off track. 

4. Ultimate Chicken Horse

Ultimate Chicken Horse - Launch Trailer

Ultimate Chicken Horse is your ultimate party platformer game. You are in charge of creating every level. But so are your opponents. You must lay out platforms and traps faster to lower their chances of beating you to the finish line.  

As the title suggests, expect some zany gameplay. The course items are insane and ridiculous. You can place a punching glove, icy platforms, or mines to deter your opponents.  

3. Brawlhalla Star Wars

Brawhalla is one of the few free-to-play arcade games that holds a special place in gamers' hearts. Its cartoonish appearance, combined with fast-paced gimmicks, offers an enthralling experience in various biomes.

Developed by Blue Mammoth Games, the franchise has a similar appeal to Super Smash Bros, but the platform fighting game carves its niche. The franchise is famous for its crossovers, with the most recent Brawhalla Star Wars causing a stir. Players step into the shoes of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, and Darth Vader in epic duel brawls to claim the Chosen One title.

2. Rubber Bandits
