It comes about via the LA based Bad Dream Games, a team who are constantly looking for new exciting ways to play, and thanks to a student made project, One Hand Clapping has become a reality. Now though, with the help of THQ Nordic’s German publishing arm at HandyGames, this project will now be going mainstream, with a launch on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC and mobile in 2021.
Already gathering up some awards for its creation, One Hand Clapping is scheduled to arrive on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS and Android in 2021, letting you yell, cry and sing your way through an artfully crafted 2D world.
The game sees you roam and interact with your environment through your voice alone – yelling, crying or singing as you encounter a variety of musical puzzles, and it is the control you have in your voice which will allow you to solve the puzzles.
Offering a 4 hour long story campaign, and 6 different biomes to discover in the world, such as the desert, the city or the sea, One Hand Clapping also promises an Educational Mode which will allow you to train your singing and learn more about voice control and music theory. Ever wanted to make it in the singing industry? This may just help.
What’s more, the world of One Hand Clapping is full of vibrant landscapes and mysterious characters portrayed through a warm, minimalist aesthetic that inspires self-expression without overwhelming the senses. All you need is a microphone, headphones, and your voice!
Features of One Hand Clapping include:
- Escape the judgmental eyes of Silent City’s hostile inhabitants
- Wander through six expansive, multicolored biomes and sing to change the world
- Sing along with three whimsical hermits throughout your musical journey
- Enjoy four hours of creative and cacophonic gameplay
