Description

Play as two minotaurs. Connect your screens to help each other out and escape the maze.

History

DYO started out as a holiday project of four Game Design students. After a month, we had what we thought was a small "finished" game. (It looked a lot different back then.) Through our university we had the lucky opportunity to exhibit it at several events including the Gamescom in Cologne where the game got overwhelmingly positive feedback. So we decided to get back to working on it about half a year later. We've been working on it in our spare time since then.

Features

  • 1-2 player local co-op
  • More than 30 mind-bending puzzles
  • Merge and split your screens to manipulate the level around you
  • Rewind mechanic lets you undo any mistake you made
  • No precision platforming. No enemies. No timers. Just you and your brains.
