Untitled Goose Game two-player mode is not split screen, as both geese show on the same single screen which follows the action around. As the two players move away from each other the screen will zoom out to an extent, but after that the geese will not be able to move beyond the confines of the screen, and 'stress lines' will appear one you reach the edge of the playable area and try to push further out to the sides.

The short answer is no, as this is intended to be a couch co-op experience so you can't play Untitled Goose Game two-player mode online through standard means. However, depending what platform you are playing on, there are other options available. PC players on Steam can use the Remote Play Together feature to team up, while PS4 players can connect with a friend using the Share Play system. These aren't as intuitive as a native online multiplayer system built into the game, but if your only option is to pair with a buddy remotely then this provides a way to play Untitled Goose Game two-player mode online.

Untitled Goose Game two-player mode is couch co-op, so as well as having a friend to play with you'll need two controllers to get started. On PC, mouse and keyboard counts as one controller input, so you'll need an extra controller for player two. On PS4 and Xbox One a second controller is required, however on Switch each player can use a separate Joy-Con so no additional equipment is required to team up with them.

If you're looking for other ways to team up with a friend over the internet, then here are 10 online co-op games you can play right now:
