A downloadable game for Windows and Mac OS X

Times are tough. Happiness is such hard work today. You just have to keep smiling! Sadness will creep in, and your mouth and eyes will droop if you don't keep working those face muscles. As the days progress, it becomes harder and harder to keep smiling. If you over-smile, your face will become contorted and people will be off-put by your hideous attempt to look happy.

The game is partly a whimsical challenge with awkward controls, and partly a metaphor. Your character is trying to appear happy, but is obviously suffering internally and doesn't have space to express it.

Instructions:
Keep pressing Q,W,P, and M to keep smiling but don't smile too hard.
(Hint: The green zone is the "perfect" smile)
