Easiest is to divide the keyboard in half and interpret keystrokes from the left half as commands for the first player and keystrokes from the right half as commands for the second player. Alternatively, you could consider a turn based system.

Hello, in a school course, the kids created games with hand made controllers. They have used two controllers at one Pi with each using its own set of GPIO. So each controller was moving its own character in the game.
This is another variant to the sharing of a keyboard as proposed by ejolson.
