OverviewOverview

Qomp is a bat and ball game with a difference. You control the ball rather than the bat. Trapped in between paddles for decades, you finally escape and start an adventure through a maze of dungeons.

You use a single button to switch the direction of your ball character. With this single ability you take on bosses, solve puzzles and overcome platforming challenges. As you progress new interactions and game mechanics develop with new obstacles and hidden doors.

"Now it is time to take matters into your own hands and try to escape this endless torment." Although it's a simple game, the developers talk about it as a meditation on freedom in three parts - first you think you are free, then you realise your freedom has a price and finally you change your idea of freedom altogether.

Qomp is planned for Xbox, PlayStation and Switch although timing has not been confirmed.

AccessibilityAccessibility

One button control, when playing every controller button does the same thing. Using keyboard you only need to use the spacebar. At one point you need to press three times in a second.

As you play you pick a path that is harder, shorter, longer. If a path is too hard you can rewind and select a different one. You can also select invincibility to remove reaction pressure.

The only text is in the menus.
