Play OverviewPlay Overview

Chariot (2014) is a cooperative running and jumping game where you work with another player to haul a wheeled Chariot to the end of each level. Pushing, pulling or dragging with ropes, you need to use the real physics of the game to solve puzzles and time jumps to get the heavy objects to their destinations. It stands out for the ingenious ways you need to get the chariot where it needs to be, and how you must work together to achieve this.

The Chariot contains the remains of the king, whose last wishes were to be buried in peace. The game is best played with a partner, although you can play it on your own. It's a unique combination of puzzles and action while having an old-school platforming feel.

The result is a game where communication between players is as important as being quick at pressing buttons. It is possible to play on your own, but it really comes to life when there is another person you can coordinate different moves and strategies with.
