Merry Christmas! I made "BuffalSnow Blizzard," a local multiplayer party version of the game

Want to play Tornuffalo at a holiday party with your friends? Now your friends can take turns controlling bison from your PC while you're in VR!

Installing is Easy
UPDATE: You can now activate this version of the game by installing BuffalSnow Blizzard. It's free for anybody who's bought Tornuffalo.

A Blizzard of Buffalo
In 2016, the world was rocked by a freak weather phenomenon known as the "Tornuffalo." As fall turned to winter, you thought you had survived nature's worst.

Now, in the darkest days of winter, a terrible blizzard is sweeping the country.

Shivering in the storm, you hear the patter of hooves above you. Through the snow, you see a shimmering red light soaring through the air. What a jolly sight! Could it be Rudolph? No. It's Garth, the red-nosed buffalo. And the Buffalizzard is only just beginning.

Party Rules:
One player puts on the VR headset. The other players take turns controlling bison from the computer. As each buffalo flies by, church bells ring and the computer player passes the keyboard/gamepad to the next person. When the VR player dies, the person who was controlling the computer at that time gets to be the VR player!

(Note that the computer players don't get a separate view, they control the bison while watching the VR display on the computer screen)


Final Notes:
"Bonus Modes" still work in this party version, and for beginners, I recommend playing in "Big Hammer" bonus mode.

Play Tornuffalo on the Oculus Rift

If you have an Oculus Rift with Touch controllers, you can play Tornuffalo! In the game, select "Graphics and Settings" from the start menu, and change "Controllers" to "Touch Right" or "Touch Left."

(Oculus users can still play using the Vive setting, but setting it to Touch affects the in-game grip position.)

Tornuffalo is designed for full room-scale and beyond, but players with smaller play spaces can likely get some enjoyment out of it. Check out the "Big Hammer" bonus mode for gameplay that relies more on smacking things out of the way, and less on dodging and ducking.

Tornuffalo uses SteamVR for Oculus Rift compatibility.

About This Game

Humankind has faced earthquakes, volcanoes, floods and hurricanes—but the most dangerous natural disaster is a weather phenomenon known as the "Tornuffalo."

A "Tornuffalo" is formed when a layer of warm, moist air meets a layer of cold, dry air which meets a herd of angry buffalo.

Note: A true meteorozoologist would explain that "buffalo" is an informal term that, in this case, refers to American bison.

Dodge fire hydrants, vans and even bison in this room-scale VR game. Hit gems to score points. Make sure to have ample space, and play with the "chaperone grid" on so you don't run into a wall!
