OverviewOverview

One Hand Clapping is a running and jumping game where you sing into a microphone to interact with the world. The game acknowledges how challenging this idea may be, and gently leads you into using your voice to create platforms, adjust the wind and generally assist your progress as you direct your character with the gamepad.

The world is full of vibrant landscapes that respond not only to your input on the gamepad but to the notes and sounds you make with your voice. Sometimes you have to sing a particular series of notes to make a path across a gap. Other-times you have to hold a single note to push back dark ghouls.

The game notices how well you are doing and the range of notes you can reach. It then adjusts the range required and the difficulty to match your ability.

Early access phase is on Stadia but game is hoped to arrive on other platforms like PlayStation, Switch and Xbox. The Stadia controller microphone can't be used for the singing.

AccessibilityAccessibility

Our One Hand Clapping Accessibility Report documents 27 accessibility features:
You can skip a puzzle if you get stuck, or repeat any puzzle and try again. There is also an educational mode where you can practice singing notes.

In the drumming sections you have to press buttons quite frequently, and sometime press two buttons at a time. Some puzzles require you to listen to notes and match them in your singing, although there is still a guide.

Playing without hearing is likely to be more difficult, however it may also be a way for players to learn how to work with their voice.
