Just tried it too. Yup, you can in fact use this to play coop. Its simple to use too. All you have to do is launch the game, open the steam overlay, invite a friend who has CM on steam to remote play, and boom, thats it. They'll join a live stream and they can use their own keyboard and mouse to control everything you can. Its pretty awesome actually. You can easily play campaigns and battles with a friend now. In fact, I have not tested this but I think you might be able to invite multiple friends as well. 

Lots of potential here. And for me, finally some additional incentive to bring more CM titles to Steam!

I saw the pop up yesterday and wondered how this worked. Great to hear that it is as fun as it looked!

So whats happening here is that you stream a video of a game to a user and when they move their mouse/press a key Steam picks that up and tells your computer to make that input. The person you are playing with will then see their movements reflected in the video stream.

Importantly this means that you cannot touch your mouse/keyboard while the other person is taking an action as it will override their inputs.
