So I know you can use multiple keyboards and mice with Trine - they introduced a patch to deal with it, I heard.

So my question is this: I have two laptops, each with its own mouse, is there a way I can get the game to recognize the second laptop as just an extra mouse and keyboard? Not LAN or online play - I know Trine doesn't do those - but treating the equipment of the second laptop as though they were simply extras plugged into the first.

Is this possible?

There's no hardware way to do this with two laptops, but you might be able to rig Synergy to direct the laptop that is not playing the game's input to the other laptop. This thread on their mailing list seems to indicate it's possible, but I've not tested it personally.
