Check out our list to help you decide what games to play on Valentine’s Day and ensure that cupid’s arrow hits its mark.

Co-op video games for couples

YYou’re alone with your loved one. Everyone else has perished in a zombie apocalypse or… whatever, it’s not important. What matters is that you’re alone with them. It’s the perfect time to enjoy some co-op games for couples and there’s nobody around to hear you scream if you lose.

It Takes Two

Platforms: PC, PlayStation, Xbox

Created purely for co-op (and a unanimous winner of our company survey), It Takes Two follows a clashing couple that’s been turned into dolls. The new situation forces them to work together and save their relationship in the meantime. Every new level brings unexpected obstacles that can only be overcome if you’re in sync. Are you?

Tools Up!

Platforms: PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch

Do you know how people say IKEA puts relationships to the test? Turns out you don’t need IKEA if you have Tools Up!. It’s a fun renovation couch co-op game for couples (or for up to four players, but let’s stick to romance). If you’re looking for date ideas, try Tools Up! and find out if your beloved is the one you’ll build your forever home with.

Unravel Two

Platforms: PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch

Unravel Two is a colorful puzzle game with settings inspired by wonderfully mossy Scandinavian locations. Create your cute Yarny and build your relationship with your partner Yarny in local co-op or solo. This game is especially forgiving for couples that aren’t at an equal gaming level.

Check if your devotion can conquer all and explore a neon galaxy to defeat the evil forces of Anti-Love. You’ll need to work together to navigate a spaceship and use your love to save the world. If this isn’t a perfectly themed Valentine’s Day video game, then what is?

Monster Prom

Platforms: PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch

Have you ever wanted to date a monster? Find your supernatural love from a safe distance in Monster Prom, a funny dating sim for up to 4 players in which you seduce your monster schoolmates. Will you get a date or rejection from the prince of the 8th Circle of Hell? Will you make a gorgon care more about you than about money? Just be careful to not go for the same character as your real-life date!

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

Platforms: PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch

Battle royale may sound menacing as a genre, but this one is a colorful and wild dash through fun rounds until one victor remains. There can only be one victor in the series of ridiculous challenges. Will you leave your love behind and aim for glory? Either way, as the developers say: Leave your dignity at the door!

Untitled Goose Game

Platforms: PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch

Team up with your date and destroy somebody’s morning in Untitled Goose Game. Become a horrible goose—or pair of horrible geese—and play pranks on innocent NPCs while honking to your heart’s content. Celebrate love by indulging your inner villains.

Lumberhill

Platforms: PC

The chaos of Lumberhill is sure to get your heart pumping and is a great co-op for couples. It’s a crazy multiplayer party game in which lumberjacks try to complete tasks with nature fighting them every step of the way, all while racing against the clock. Didn’t you always say your love looked great in flannel?

A Way Out

Platforms: PC, PlayStation, Xbox

Nothing brings togetherness as much as prison and an exclusively co-op adventure. That is, the one in A Way Out. Each player controls one of two convicts who must cooperate to make the thrilling breakout a success. But either way, as long as you’re together forever, nothing else matters, right?

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

Platforms:  PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch

Control two brothers on a journey through Scandinavian landscapes to find a cure for their father. While the game was designed for a solo co-op experience, meaning that one player controls both characters with different keys or buttons, it is entirely possible to play as two—just sit very close to each other. 😉

Romantic games for a romantic evening

And even if your significant other doesn’t like playing themself, there’s some fun and heartwarming games that are enjoyable to play with an audience of one.
