Hello, I'm looking for recommendations on software for PC.

I want to play some single player games and allow my friend at another location to watch, but also be able to take control on some parts.
Is this possible?

A couple examples:

-You Don't Know Jack Trivia - Steam doesn't offer "Remote Play Together" for this game, so if he could see the screen and "buzz" in his answers on is keyboard, he could play.

-Uninvited - a point and click single player game - Want to be able to play this so my friend can watch, but also allow him to play at times, so we can take turns
Is there a software solution for this? Thank you.

How about you share your screen over teamviewer and let him control the pc. That way both of you can control the mouce ingame and write with your own keyboard.

This worked good for some games, the visuals were a bit choppy though.

We actually would like to try some games that require a controller.

We weren't able to get a controller to work over Teamviewer, I don't think that's supported.

Is there any other software that could accomplish this? Again, just for single player games, taking turn games, not multiplayer games.
