Game: 

We've got a proof of concept for our concrete factory, except that things are going the wrong way in some of the pipes, materials are spilling out onto the floor, and finished product is getting lost. Got to sort this out before we can get to building!

Game: 

The base now has sufficient power and materials, so we want to start building things again. However, a space age facility shouldn't be made out of wood and cobblestone, so we have to put together a factory system to mass manufacture some modern materials!

Game: 

With the latest lava fields running out, Narcogen and Blackstar start making use of their hard-earned Osmium in constructing some power generators from Mekanism: Wind Turbines. Although hooking them up turns out to be a bit of a challenge...

Game: 

The collection is actually the first game in the AI War series, Fleet Command, and five expansions released between 2010 and 2013. The developer, Arcen Games, is working on a new entry in the series due out later this year, called The Last Federation. All feature competitive and cooperative play against human or AI players. It runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OSX, and supports cross-platform multiplayer.
Steam has just put up for sale the entire AI War Collection: six titles for less than five bucks!

This free, open-source empire-building game lets  you lead your tribe from the stone age to the space age. Now there's an HTML version playable in browsers, even on mobile devices! Features network and play-by-email options as well, and supports Windows, Linux and OSX with cross-platform play. Currently the OSX version is out of sync with the latest stable version (latest Mac version 2.3.0, latest stable for Win/Linux 2.3.5).

The successor to the Quake engine-based Nexuiz, Xonotic is a fast-paced multiplayer shooter, similar to Unreal Tournament or Quake 3 Arena. Features FFA and team play.

This modern port of Stuart Cheshire's classic tank multiplayer game Bolo still runs on modern versions of OSX, is still free, and is still fun! The game's homepage is down as of this writing, so we may even try to get permission to host this one ourselves. A map editor is also available.

UPDATE: Changed this video to shorten it a bit, fix some sync issues, and clean some things that slipped through the editing proces...

 

Blackstar and Narcogen find a terrible calamity has befallen the Valdez oil rig and attempt to salvage the situation.

Game: 

The latest iteration of Sid Meier's famous strategy game series doesn't get listed on most sites as being a cooperative game, but that's only because how most alliances are temporary. That certainly doesn't need to stop you from getting together online with a few friends to beat up on the AI (or try to) before turning on each other!

Overwhelmed by the endless Endermen in the underground crypt, Blackstar and Narcogen find themselves falling out of the frying pan and into the fire as they attempt to escape from the skeleton infested graveyard.

Game: 

According to its sourceforge page, Triple A is "a free online turn based strategy game and board game engine, similar to such board games as Axis & Allies or Risk." While it doesn't appear to have a discrete cooperative play mode, these kinds of games usually feature the ability for players to create informal (and usually temporary) alliances among themselves, so I'm including it here. Thanks to a former IMG writer who tipped us off to this gem!
