Description

Mirrors of Grimaldi is a four player splitscreen game where your health is represented by the size of your screen. Players will be pitted against each other as Grimaldi’s Interdimensional Demonic Carnival invades the same medieval town in parallel timelines. As swarms of demonic minions attack the players, their screens will shrink and eventually crush them, knocking them out of the game. The last surviving player is declared the winner and is allowed to fight another day.

History

We designed Mirrors of Grimaldi in an effort to play with what splitscreen could to do to help the Local Multiplayer genre. Instead of simply being a means of showing four screens on one display, we’ve taken the concept of splitscreen and attempted to base most of our game mechanics on how players can interact with it.

Features

  • A brand new Dynamic Splitscreen mechanic.
  • Local multiplayer competition.
  • Gesture controlled combat.
  • Stat tracking and post match awards.
  • 2 different enemy types with varied skills.
