We need a new hype train to celebrate, and it shall be loaded with working fireworks* which will add to the hype.

*Fireworks may or may not work

Just a question, will this be steam hosted, LAN, or buying servers?
LAN would rule out a lot (if not all) of us from playing together/with others (besides families) as we don't live next door/down the street to each other to have a LAN party. Would really dash a lot (or all) of the hype/hope of MP especially in our day and age.

I would think it would be both Steam hosted, and LAN. Just because LAN might not be as common, doesn't mean it isn't used. Chances are, LAN would be the best option to use in the Payload office.

Dont say that unless you mean it :p Thats my Bday and MP on TT as a present would be.... epic.
It seemed a possibility ~3 months ago though at this stage I suspect the guesstimate of mine was overly optimistic as it seems 0.7.8 stable may not be released before All Hallow's Eve.

Canaries have multiplayer testing right now. Now it's a matter of when they will be satisfied with it's stability enough to release it to the general player base.

Right now, the mode we have is fairly stable, but they are probably gonna experiment around with it to add more modes and maybe change stuff to make the current one more fun to play.

Since multiplayer is in tests:

@Jamie Question - is a proper coop campaign mode planned for two players or a bit more? With proper saving and stuff.

For the official addition, right now it's a maybe. They want to add it, but it's a lot of work and they aren't sure if the game can handle it. It could come before release, or it might be another post-1.0 thing.
