Developed by Ink Kit Studios, Deru - The Art of Cooperation will be bringing its mind-bending puzzles to Nintendo Switch early next month, it has been revealed.

Deru is a couch co-op game in which two players must team up to overcome deadly streams of shadow and light. Success will only be found through teamwork, timing, and some pretty strong tactics, and the whole thing is giving us an artsy Death Squared vibe.

As you can see in the trailer above, things appear to start out easy enough, with each player blocking streams of light which will hurt their co-op buddy. Things soon heat up, though; eventually, more lines start to appear, going in more directions than you can keep up with, and things only look to get more challenging with circular beams of light, too.

Ink Kit tells us that the game has been in development for four years, with each level being carefully planned alongside the abstract design, and it has even won several awards at various indie-based events over those past few years, too. You can check out a selection of screens below.

The game will be available to download directly from the Nintendo Switch eShop on 7th November - pricing and other details are still to be confirmed.
