Never tackled that before but I'd probably start experimenting with viewports and scissors, I have always wanted to create an Extreme Violence game, maybe I will after my current project is done.

I haven't done it but I would consider SetRenderToImage(), and applying the image to a sprite. 2 Sprites with render images can then be placed side by side.

The more challenging part will be if you want to interact with objects on screen, you will have to map your pointer coordinates back to the area of the screen that the rendering is coming from.
