These little friends are inseparable. They literally light up each other's world. But when their plain of existences holds some precarious situations they have to use each other to make it through together. Literally, as both of them have major faults that only the other can make up for. In Undivided, an absolutely adorable puzzle game, there are two heroes, one green who can only move left and right with the [arrow keys], and one who is blue that can only move up with [W] and down with [S]. Thankfully neither of them are above taking a little tough love and will allow the other to push them towards the warmly glowing orange squares that is their exit. It's meant to be played with two players and a different experience is promised if you do, but if you are alone for the time being this game is more than enjoyable to play by yourself. These brightly colored heroes have enough friendship to go around. Made by a group of MFA students at USC's Interactive Media & Games Division, Undivided may not be the most challenging or the most advanced game in the puzzle genre but it's surely one of the cutest.
While purely made to be a cooperative game I honestly didn't realize it when I first played though. Yes it was easy, but it still had a trick up its sleeve by keeping the movement keys separated. While in the start the puzzles are simply how to get across the screen with two characters who can either move only horizontally or only on a vertical line, it soon gets into having to be faster with your fingers as laser guns come into play. But what really makes Undivided worth a play through is the heroes themselves. For being basically just an eyeball they show a lot of emotions. When the characters drift far enough apart their eyes look sad and worried. The light around them dim a little more and you can feel the loneliness and fear of losing one another. Through this, a small narrative is born without the use of any words or even a little picture comic to clarify. A beautiful little story is told through some artistic choices and it's one you can enjoy by yourself or one to share with a family member or a friend. So pull someone alongside for some old fashioned co-op or enjoy friendship from a distance with this simple yet charming adventure.
