Play the co-op campaign alone[edit]

The co-op campaign for this game cannot be played single-player using the game's built-in settings. A work around, however, allows one player to control both characters and thus play the campaign. By using a program like JoyToKey, controls for both characters can be mapped to the same buttons. This process is detailed in the Steam Users' Forums.
