Cheap Indie games with online multiplayer?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Cheap Indie games with online multiplayer?

Bought my kids each a Lite so now we have a system for each member of the family. No more having to play PC instead when I wanna play Pokemon but the kids want to play Minecraft.

But with that said, I was thinking - it would also be nice to have some games that we can play together, all on our own consoles.

Of course, that would require I buy whatever game it is 4 times - once on each account - which means I would like something cheap. And my kids are young, so probably nothing too terribly technical.

Any suggestions?

I believe you'd only need to buy a game twice, given how the account system works on the Switch. Set it up so the person with the primary account on their console plays the game on a different account, then someone with the secondary account plays it on that one - I've played online multiplayer with a friend by doing that, but logically it'd only work for up to 2 players at once, so you'd need to buy twice to get 4 players in.

As for the suggestion itself, I don't know. The multiplayer games I play on the Switch are usually of the $60, everyone-on-the-same-screen kind.



I downloaded free racing game "Asphalt 9"...was pleasantly surprised by the great graphics (For the Switch anyway) Car handling, and addictive set up. Provided that you grind a bit, it is not necessary to spend any money on the game.

It has local split screen modes and online multiplayer. Which you unlock after about an hour or two of play.

Hmm. That hasn't worked in the past with Minecraft at least, but I just tested it with Kamiko (only other game I have downloaded to two systems at the moment) and I have it running on both. So yeah, maybe it WILL work, then...
