If I buy one license of Dungeon Defenders from the current Humble Bundle can I play it co-operatively with my family on two or even better three PCs in the same LAN? I've heard that it supports guest play.

Note that if you do decide to buy extra copies, you'll probably want to get them through the bundle as well, because the bundle includes all DLC – Yamikuronue Mar 8 '13 at 16:47

Each computer requires its own license to play, however if you have controllers you can do a split-screen up to 4 people on a single computer. This means that in order to play with 8 people on your LAN, a minimum of 2 computers is required (2 computers each with 4-person split screen).

If you want each person to have their own keyboard and mouse, each computer MUST have their own licensed copy of the game.

Can you play with two people split screen on the same computer, whilst playing online with 2 others aswell? Or are these modes set up differently? – user43591 Mar 9 '13 at 17:20
@Shane You can split screen and still multiplayer with other computers, yes - as long as you're all playing in "Online". (I don't remember how "Local" connections work, but I presume if it's a LAN game you can still split screen and have other computers from the network.) – Gwen Mar 10 '13 at 13:50
Sorry to revive a 'dead' question, but I've already posted to no avail. I'm trying to get a similar setup, but I'm having issues with just split screen. It appears that all heroes are on one account, how did you get around that? – John Feb 13 '14 at 4:15
