    This is visually stunning cooperation platform puzzle game. Great for an indoor date night.

    A surprisingly entertaining platformer which creatively throws some puzzle solving your way. The balance between the platforming and puzzle solving sections feels just right. Add to that a very pleasant audiovisual style and you really cannot fault Degrees of Separation in any way. If we're pushing for criticisms, the precision required when solving some puzzles might be the only minor gripe we could think of but that's really all. Great fun and highly recommended.

    Cooperative games don't get much better than Degrees of Separation. Its ingenious puzzle design and open-ended campaign are perfect for co-op fun while the gorgeous visuals and storybook narrative make it all the more engaging.

    Despite a stunning art style and puzzles as gratifying as they are numerous, a disappointing lack of features prevent Degrees of Separation from outshining others in its genre. When you're willing to overlook the repetition in favour of its intriguing central mechanic, however, this charming title will prove itself worthy of your time.

    Degrees of Separation is difficult to judge. It features a traditional side-scrolling progression with hand-drawn graphic, but it’s somehow limited by its own design. This brings to a lot of puzzles that are actually frustrating instead of brain-ticklers. But this game also features an incredible fairy-tale atmosphere together with a great soundtrack. And are these features that save it from the abyss. But only from it.

    Degrees of Separation is a visually gorgeous and charming game that, while having some innovative mechanics, devolves into tedium due to a poorly paced story and repetitive puzzles .

    Degrees of Separation shows a great potential, but the platformer suffers from an antique gameplay which feels wrong, whether you're playing solo or in coop.

    Degrees of Separation
    A cute concept but not really that fun
    Degrees os Separation is on paper a cute little puzzle game that you can play
    Degrees of Separation
    A cute concept but not really that fun
    Degrees os Separation is on paper a cute little puzzle game that you can play alone or with your boo… or really anyone else..
    Sortve like the whole unravel 2 thing, 2 characters working together to complete tasks…
    I usually love such a concept, but degrees of separation only managed to separate me and my attention span…
    Here you play as ember and rime as they awaken to fine their homes in ruin…
    They set out to find answers.. but what they find is much more powerful…
    eachother… awh.
    I was so excited to play this game with my girlfriend but quickly discovered oh no… this wouldn’t be fun to play with somebody else at all…
    each character has their own element attached to them, fire and ice..
    Ember melts ice, she can breath under water, and rime of course freezes ice, you unlock other abilitie to complete puzzles as the game goes on.. but sadly this isn’t an unravel type game where its going forward together solving puzzles and moving on… it seems like that at first but it just isn’t…
    It does the whole metroidvania thing of every level having thousands of different directions to go, so you can collect these scarfs and move onto the next world…
    if youre new to the channel im not a Metroidvania fan, I hat backtracking, I hate thousands of diretions to explore in platformers, its overwhelming… and ontop of that youre adding puzzles and cooperation…
    I don’t have the patience to play these types of games on my own, let alone with someone else trying to figure things out together…
    especially when you cant just walk through or past eachother, I couldn’t imagine someone being in my way, or me being in their wy all while trying to figure out puzzles and grab these scarfs and try to remember where weve went and where we havnt went
    its just too much…
    if you and your boo love yourselves some metroidvania feeling games yall will have a cute little time with your song of fire and ice…
    but it didn’t take make long to realize it just wasn’t for me
    I give Degrees of Separation
    a 5.5/10
