TRYST is a 3D ambient 1-2 player local co-op puzzle platformer. That description is a mouthful for such a simple concept.

Forces unknown seem to be trying to keep you two apart. Your goal is to traverse and conquer the mysterious environment and reunite with your lover's warm embrace.

With a heavy focus on cooperation and 10 levels increasing in challenge and complexity, you'll need to work together, plan ahead, develop strategies, and exercise those beautiful brains if you want to see the light. Remember, love conquers all.

For the ultimate experience, share a single controller with your partner. Or, if you're a glutton for punishment, you can go solo with a single controller. That's how the pros do it.

This game is downloadable on Windows and Mac.

One Player = one controller

Two Players = keyboard OR one controller OR two controllers

This game was conceived and prototyped within 48 hours for the Toronto Global Game Jam in 2015. We then spent a year tweaking and polishing it in our free time.

Developed by Ryan Welham, Mike Gillespie, and Sean Leach.

In the level with the elevator switch there's a green platform that's misplaced and makes the yellow player fall A LOT  :c

On macOS CTRL+arrows used as shortcut and I can't use it for second player. Please change CTRL to other key. Also arrows keys on macbook not ergonomic, maybe you can change it to other keys like I K L J Y

Anyway to play with friends online? And not by having a person in your house.


Not yet, but who knows, maybe we're working on something :O

why cant i move the yellow person

wow, dat's cool

This is a great CO-OP Puzzle game. Highly recommend it for some local multiplayer action. Got a friend coming over to play games? TRYST is a great co-op game to pull out. You'll have fun solving these puzzles. Follow GMVR for more playthroughs of demos.


I'm glad you enjoyed it so much and we really appreciate the kind words! Your videos look great! Thank you thank you!
