One Hand Clapping is a vocal 2D platformer game where players get to solve puzzles through the use of their voices. Players are required to sing their voices out to save a fantastical universe from the threat of being swallowed by eternal silence. Developers Bad Dream Games packages the game as a new way to enjoy singing comfortably and confidently.

It might sound rogue-like game where players have to battle their way out and destroy enemies but developers say it is not. However, Bad Dreams Games says the game would create a strong connection between players and their vocal capabilities.

  1. Steam
  2. Epic Games
  3. PS4
