This split-screen game shows the 3D world from two different perspectives:
The game is open-source, completely free to download and play. Try it now!
Human views the world in 1st person. It walks over the terrain. In right-handed mode, human view is the right one.
Human is controlled only with mouse. Move mouse to look around. Click mouse left button to start/stop moving forward (no need to hold the button pressed), Click mouse right button to start/stop moving backward (no need to hold the button pressed).
Human is hurt by hot lava. Stand on a neutral ground (rocks) to regenerate, or very close to the worm when it freezes the lava (on blueish fluid).
When the human dies, game ends.
Worm views the world from the top. It can swim in lava. In right-handed mode, worm view is the left one.
Move the worm with AWSD.
Worm freezes lava into a water that is not harmful for player. Worm is hurt when it stays stationary for too long, as the heat is too much even for a sandworm. You have to move the worm to regenerate.
When the worm dies, human can still try to continue the game.
Run the game swapping the split screen order. This is useful if the mouse is on the left of the keyboard, then you want the left screen part to show human view (as human is controlled by mouse).
Usual window size and fullscreen options. By default we start in fullscreen.
Usual sound options.
