"The Best Years of my Life" is a game for two players, seated at one keyboard. Made in 48 hours for Mini LD #10.

Playing alone isn't recommended; the game won't make much sense if you do.

Unique

The best thing about this game is how you've taken an more unique idea and told it through the game-play mechanic of the woman's keyboard control's eventually taking over the man's. Otherwise I felt that the game didn't have as much of an impact as it could have, but that's partly becauseI was only playing it by myself. I don't know if I liked the color changing constantly or not, perhaps it could have been used instead to enhance the story by representing emotions at different stages.

This truly disappointed me

You could've way way better with this. I do agree that the play style was interesting and constructive, but it was very short and the levels were extremely easy. Great job on VVVVVV and Don't Look Back, though.

Like the story behind it

I love the feeling that seems to have gone into this. The music and graphics were average, but I really two little things that I saw. Some of the later levels, were one character is up higher and the other is positioned to look like its watching TV, and the another one where one comes in through the door and put his coat rack, while the other is downstairs at the dinner table. Am I the only one to notice that the characters change, I tried to figure what set which character at which position, probably whichever dies less or collects more of the little squares. the gradual control shift is also really nice. The game itself isn't particularly amazing, but the story behind it is quite well executed.

very cool game...

...though it's only really worth playing through once. the point, i'm assuming, is that after a while, the wife completely controls the man's actions by berating him and constantly threatening to leave, making him do any and every arbitrary thing she commands when once they worked together in everything.

'tis sad. i hope it never happens to me.

...but yeah, i really enjoyed this. minimalist style with a whole lot of substance. hooray.
