My Life Is Yours - Spring 2012
Created for the Global Game Jam, My Life is Yours is a puzzler featuring two characters who share one life force – when one dies, the other is reborn, with the form of death changing the form of rebirth. My Life is Yours was one of the most popular games on Kongregate in the weeks after its upload, and was featured on blogs such as IndieGames.com and Gamasutra.
