Can you play this game with multiple monitors?

    My last game was Legend of Grimrock II and it had a great option to play it windowed. I loved it as if I was able to use my other monitor to do other things while playing. I'm guessing no, as I haven't found an option for it. Any thoughts?

    Just uncheck the "full screen" option. Or press Alt+Enter. Either should work.

    Unchecking the box didn't seem to do anything.

    It's possible the setting requires a restart or something, but unchecking the box should have put you in full screen windowed mode if you're playing on your native resolution.

    Failing that, alt+enter should have worked. Have you tried it?

    I will try again, but Alt Enter is not what I was looking for.

    How so? Alt+Enter is a default shortcut that puts a program into windowed mode and should also work with Pillars AFAIK. That ought to free up your other screens.
