I guess I sang so badly that I broke the game!

Hey now! Maybe you're so good the game couldn't handle it! 💪 Sorry to see there were issues with the graphics... we're working on a longer version right now that we'll be doing our best to optimize for as many computers as possible!

I wanted to tell you that popular Japanese voice actor Hanae Natsuki (花江 夏樹) tried out the demo!
If you know a bit about anime, his popular anime roles include Ken Kaneki in "Tokyo Ghoul", Kousei Arima in "Your Lie in April" or Lavi in "D Gray Man" :D

Since he is a voice actor, he tried beating the game using anime lines! Haha!!

Hi, Midoko!! Thanks for passing his video along to us 😃 Having him play through our game was amazing to see. We have some fans of these shows among our team, so needless to say we were positively thrilled. A great honor! ❤️


Fear my beautiful pipes.

Fearsome pipes indeed! :D Happy to hear it'll come in handy for stress relief, too! Thrilled to hear that you enjoyed it, and thank you so much for playing and sharing your vid! :)

  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: GPU with 1+ GB of VRAM

My Gameplay of this terrific game! :D

omigosh, thanks for taking the time to watch my let's play and respond here again! ^_^

I'll be sure to check the newsletter out, I really loved playing your game..!

The game is fun but the sound calibration is kinda off :/

(2 edits)

Sorry to hear it's giving you some trouble! Are you by chance using an internal microphone? You may have to sing a little louder, or closer to the mic, in that case. Hope that will help solve the problem, if so! 

One world: WOW! This game is a masterpiece! Really cool concept with an amazing and out of this world soundtrack, the graphics are just so pure! loved it! Keep it up!

Awesome! Thanks for the generous rating :D 


PewDiePie played this game

We were incredibly honored! :) 




Adorable alien buddies, colorful and playful environments, super-funky puzzles and beyond unique voice powered controls make this game oddly addictive.. I love it!👍

Hey EveLGamer! Thanks for playing our game :D glad to hear you enjoyed it! For some reason the video won't play, which is a bummer - we'd love to see your playthrough! Definitely send us a link if the problem can be resolved! 

It looks like it's working now! Here's the gameplay :D

Thank you for taking the time to respond to my comment; I didn't expect any sort of response. Made my day..! :)

This demo was super awesome! I cannot wait until the longer version comes out. Well done, folks, fantastic work on this game.

Hey Klaus_hargreevess! Thanks for the kind words, we're happy you enjoyed it! :) Working on the longer game and hoping you won't be disappointed.

You'll get all the latest info and a chance to throw in any suggestions you've got along the way! 

Hi, I just downloaded the game because I saw one of my fav YouTuber playing it but for some reason the game is stuck at the loading screen? I waited for it to go past that for over an hour but nothing happened. I'm on a mac btw! 

Hi there, juli3! Thanks for reaching out and sorry to hear you’re having some issues getting past that part. Can I ask what iOS version you’re using? That will give us a better idea of how to help from here! 

Version 10.14.3 the info said. also its x64 one if that matters? im not too knowledgable about this stuff but hopefully this helps? 

Great, it requires 10.9 at a minimum, so you're good there. How about the other specs, according to the system requirements listed? To recap, the other minimum requirements are 2.4 HGz or faster, 8 BG of RAM, GPU w/ 1+ GB of VRAM for graphics, and 3.9 GB of available space for storage. Hope that helps sort out the issue a bit more!

when it will release on steam? it says coming soon :(

Hey mirowoxd! We're in the process of making a longer version, and you can get the latest updates with our newsletter (you can sign up at onehandclappinggame.com). All the most recent info will be sent to our players as it's released. We hope you'll like it when it comes out!

i seriously dont know whats wrong with this game ...........but i know its a good game i want to play it but i am not able to...............i downloaded but say disk is full i di not understand

(3 edits)

Hey there, soumya gosalia! Sounds like you may need to make a bit more space on your hard drive, if there's a message that the disk is full! It requires at least 3.9 GB of available space, and the file is 296 MB for Win/ 299 MB for Mac.

it was a really fun game! definitely a game for a singer (such as myself) or a musician. It's an interesting concept that was executed very well. I can't wait until the full version :D

(1 edit)

Thanks so much, matlashevsky.angela! :D We hope the full version will meet your expectations! You can stay current on our progress for it with our mailing list (at onehandclappinggame.com), we'll be providing all the latest info and updates there! 


In steam it said that it was free but its not free              

Now im sad

Hey there! We can help with that. 😃 above the $2.00 suggested donation, you’ll see a link that says “No thanks, just take me to the downloads”.  Click, download for free, and enjoy! 

A really creative and well-made game. The unique mechanisms of using your voice was portrayed well. Had fun playing it

(2 edits)

Awesome! Great persistence with figuring out how the shrines worked 😃 Thank you for sharing, we’re happy to hear you enjoyed it! 👏 ❤️ 


thanks!! :D

If you'd like to translate the game in French, I can help you! (I'll volunteer)

(2 edits)

Hey there Laucrte! Thank you for volunteering! 🎉💕 I believe right now we are all set on the new translation front. We really appreciate everyone who offers their time and skills ✨ you all are the best!

Anytime :D 

Is the full version going to be released anytime soon?


Hey queenlynxbb, thanks for checking in! We’re currently doing the best we can to get the longer version rolling. You can check out our progress by signing up for the newsletter (at onehandclappinggame.com), and we’d love to hear your thoughts as we go along! ✨

It was super fun to play! I found myself humming all through the game once I got into it by the first few voice segments. Though, as Brendan said in a comment below, a voice range option like being asked for the lowest and highest comfortable tone would be super nice, since my lowest comfortable tone is still somewhat high and I was caught off-guard by having to do higher notes. Also, having to breathe in and causing the way that shapes according to pitch to spike up was a problem for me, but I'm not sure if that can be easily solved >.< 

Overall a super cute game, the player character is just adorable and being encuraged to play with one's voice is a fun concept i  haven't really seen much of before!

Hi Rakiria, thank you so much for your helpful feedback! We’ll take it all into consideration as we go forward. We also have a newsletter that will provide updates throughout the development process, and we’d love to hear your thoughts going forward too (available at onehandclappinggame.com). You can also leave comments on our FB/Twitter sites, too! Thank you so much for playing and so happy to hear you enjoyed the game!! ❤️ 

64 bits ;-;

i really want an installer for this game.  reply if you want me to make one for you!

(3 edits)

Hey sastofficial! Thanks for the message 😊 at the time we are all good on this matter. We totally appreciate your offer regardless! Incredibly kind of you ❤️ 

Really enjoyed my time with One Hand Clapping. I like platformers a lot and was nice to see a new take on the genre by the power of your vocal chords. 

If you take any feed back I'd suggest have different threshold options for people like me who lack the talent to sing and another option for those who can sing and be able to be more precise with notes. I also thought some of the puzzles went on a bit too long as it took a while to reach those notes. 

I am looking forward to a full release as it's a concept that I find compelling a lot with the aesthetic of the game. Thanks for sharing the concept demo and hope it reaches a release.

Hahah awesome playthrough, thank you for sharing it with us! Thanks for the excellent feedback. We’re currently working on a longer game and we’ll be sure to keep these words in mind. You can sign up for a newsletter we’re doing at our main website (onehandclappinggame.com), where we’d love to hear more of your impressions as we continue with development. Can also leave comments at our FB/Twitter pages, too. Thank you once again!! 

how to download this game? when i click "no thanks, just take me to the download page", it swos the same page.

Hi EarleneE! Sorry there seem to be some issues with downloading the game for you. Can I ask what browser/version you’re using? That should give us a good starting point to help! 👍

Where can I change my microphone?

(1 edit)

Hi KazigKaasje! Is it an internal or external microphone that you're having trouble with? If it's internal, you may need to sing louder or closer to the microphone for it to pick up your voice. If you're having trouble with an external microphone, the ones that come with earbuds should work great as well!

I have a microphone attached to my headset, and OHC is set to that. Though I would rather connect to my usb microphone I just got, but I don't knoe hoe to switch to it.
