You control Bismo and Plom, who are connected by accident. They share a common mass and can shift it at any time. At the push of a button you change size and strength, affecting yourself and your partner.
The mechanic links you and forces you to cooperate and communicate.


In over 40 levels, you and a friend face challenging puzzles and different obstacles. For the more advanced players, additional objectives, secret areas and arena-based levels are included.
Please note that some of these levels will change during the Early Access phase of the game.

Play tru co-op™ and online

Shift Happens is a co-op game best enjoyed locally but also comes with an online multiplayer option, for those torn apart by distance.
Although the game is rather focused on cooperation with a friend, there is a singleplayer campaign as well. It features a second set of levels in which you take control over both characters, Bismo and Plom.
(Online only on PC, PS4 and Xbox One)
