Hey all, I wanted to share a project I've been working on for the last year or so. Check it out, it's a 4 screen, 4 player game. Here's a video:

Can you explain the setup a bit more? I saw people running between screens, but I was unsure of whether they were actual players, and looking at different screens was part of the gameplay, or whether they were just the spectators?

Looks interesting nonetheless!

Thanks for checking this out!

Basically the game is a multiplayer, 2d platformer. 4 players play at once, 2 on each team. The main game mode involves a single bomb and 2 castles, 1 belonging to each team. The idea is to destroy the other team's castle before they blow up yours. This leads to a very 'capture the flag' style of gameplay. Each castle is on a different screen, so the players must move their avatar around the level to get to key points in the map.

This is why you see players moving around the screens, they are following their avatar around the 2d level. Just think of each monitor displaying 1 of 4 sections of the level and you have to move from one monitor to the next to see what the next part of the level holds.
