A downloadable game for Windows

Totem Madness

You fight locally on controllers against your friends in an immobile totem! The only way to move is to magically switch places with other objects or players, who you are also destined to shoot down with magical orbs of the elements!
To win, you must be the last surviving of the 2-4 totems on the battlefield.

Controls and Tutorial

You move around by swapping places with objects, because you are a totem. Totems can't move. To charge your swap range, you hold down RT and aim with the left joystick. This can be canceled with LT. Winning the game requires you to be the last man standing. To become this, you destroy barrels near enemies with bullets or shoot enemies directly. This is done with RB and aiming on the left joystick. This can only be done when not charging with RT.

Dualshock 4 (PS4) controllers can be used via DS4Windows, install and use directions are available at the link.


You can swap places with all objects but some have special abilities. The objects are:

  • Small rocks
    • Low health obstacles
  • Large rocks
    • High health obstacles
  • Toxic- and Explosive Barrel
    • Explodes on hit and kills any player in explosive radius
  • Elixir
    • Gives a higher rate of fire for 10 seconds when swapped with
  • Rubies
    • When swapped with, the ruby swaps all players' positions
  • Rune
    • When swapped with, the rune swaps every single object's position with the others' - can be swapped with 3 times before fading
