Solve puzzles with your voice: One Hand Clapping is out now as Early Access on Google Stadia!

Los Angeles, California / Giebelstadt, Germany, July 15th, 2020:

Hearing your own voice is strange, right? How about a fun game that teaches you to control it, helps you to feel more comfortable and confident while singing, and guides you to develop a stronger connection to your voice.

​This connection can be very powerful. There is a reason singing in the shower is so enjoyable and karaoke is so liberating. One Hand Clapping, being uplifting and accessible for everyone, sets out to make you a believer in your own musical skills. Interact with a virtual, colorful world and solve puzzles with melody, rhythm, and harmony. How you do it is completely up to you: no matter if you prefer singing, whistling, humming, or even using an instrument, One Hand Clapping will be your unique musical journey!
