Play OverviewPlay Overview

River Tails: Stronger Together (2023) is a cooperative adventure about a kitten and fish heading upstream to save the kitten's family. Play involves moving around the world, navigating jumps and platforms while also triggering switches and defeating enemies to help each other. It stands out not only for the storybook fun but for how each player has different tasks to help the pair move forward.

Play either as Furple, the curious and excitable purple kitten, or Finn, the independent fish with a bit of an attitude problem. You work together to defeat end-of-level bosses and solve switch puzzles to progress through the flora-rich levels.

As you progress you learn to communicate and collaborate on the river-themed challenges. Perhaps the fish needs to hit a lily pad from below to make a platform for the kitten. Other times the kitten needs to clear the way so the fish can jump safely forward. Then there are the big boss enemies that need more focus and timing from both players.

The result is a game where you play together but each has very different abilities and part of the level you can explore. Only by careful and detailed communication and timing can you progress through to save your family.
