Love this. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Still my fav!

You've got an excellent voice! :) Thanks so much for playing our game, and for the kind words too. Hope you'll enjoy the full version when it's up and ready to go, too! :) 

While it was fun, the detection seemed somewhat wonky, especially during those bits where one has to hold a note, it kept flickering. Possibly because of my crappy webcam. You might have to sell this in combination with a halfway decent mic. ;)

At any rate, it's awesome that you got funding and I'm looking forward to the full game!

Hey sh3dow83! Playing with the settings might be able to solve that problem! You can adjust the mic sensitivity, as well as recalibrate as needed. Hopefully one of those two will work for you! 

Thanks so much for the kind words, we're hard at work and hope you'll enjoy it when it's ready to go! :)

I love the game's concept and I've seen a bunch of playthroughs, but when I download the .Zip file, I can't get the game to open. I have all the requirements listed, but I'm just unable to figure out what to press to get the game to start. Any tips?

Hello Hybridfandomgirl -- happy to help! For starters, are you on a Mac or a PC?

Hallo one hand clapping.

I love the game and even i record it two like a year ago

i can not w8 for your full version

Hi thenathangamer! Thanks so much for sharing your video — used some creative methods for hitting those notes! ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ‘ Thanks so much for your kind words. We are working hard on the full version and hope youโ€™ll enjoy it when itโ€™s ready to go!  ๐ŸŽ‰

Hey there! I love this game so much, I played it quite a while ago and I wanted to show my friend back home! ^^ However, it doesn't seem to startup properly. It gets to the USC Games screen then crashes at the same point every time. I've played it on this same PC before, it's a little sad that we can't play it. ): Is there an update coming any time soon? Thanks so much!

Hey there, selcric! Thanks so much for sharing our game with a friend :D Sorry to hear it's been acting up this time around. It might be helpful to double-check the system requirements to see if anything may have changed (storage could be a good place to start). Here they are for reference: 

  • OS: Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit), Mac OS X 10.9 or higher (64-bit)
  • Processor: 2.4 GHz or faster
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: GPU with 1+ GB of VRAM
    • Windows must have DirectX 11 capabilities
  • Storage: 3.9 GB available space

Hope this can help pinpoint the problem!

Hey, I love this game and had an idea for it in the future. If you continue to add a lot onto this game or make another, I think it would be a cool idea to add custom songs into it. Where users would be able to add in the notes, and make unique customized levels. If you don't like the idea it's totally fine, just a thought I had while playing the game. Keep up the good work! Love you guys :)

Hey tinypolarbear_21! We love getting feedback from our players! Thank you so much :D

We'd be happy to hear from you as we continue to expand our game. You can stay in the loop through our mailing list (link above and on our main website as well). Let us know what you think as we go along! :)

Hi, I'm a MacBook Pro user, and I can't seem to continue the game after I fall into the cave thing? After it loads, the graphics suddenly drop and says "Application Not Responding." I love the concept and graphics of this game, it would be great if I could continue to play it, thank you!

(+2)

Hi, imashleii! Letโ€™s see - my first suggestion would be to have a look at the system requirements, make sure all those are in check! For reference, hereโ€™s whatโ€™s needed to run the game: 

  • OS: Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit), Mac OS X 10.9 or higher (64-bit)
  • Processor: 2.4 GHz or faster
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: GPU with 1+ GB of VRAM
    • Windows must have DirectX 11 capabilities
  • Storage: 3.9 GB available space
Hoping one of these will provide the answer! Thanks in advance for playing our game - we appreciate it! ๐Ÿ’•

Thanks for your reply!! I appreciate it a lot. I found out that my Processor and Graphics were below the requirements ;c It's upsetting not being able to play this amazing game, but I hope I can later on in the future. Thank you so much!

Ahh Iโ€™m sorry to hear that!! Weโ€™re currently developing a full release and working hard to optimize it for as many computers as possible. We will have updates as we go on our main site (onehandclappinggame.com) as well as our newsletter! We hope youโ€™ll enjoy it! ๐ŸŽ‰

theres a bit of a problem while loading the game lol it always freezes at the usc games and i dont know what to do lolol i checked and i do have all the requirements to play the game haha do you know how to solve this?? thanks a lot in advance!

Hey, Momikino! Sorry to hear thereโ€™s been some trouble with getting things going. Given all the system requirements are met, itโ€™s gonna be hard to pinpoint the exact problem from here... good news is that we are working on optimizing our upcoming version for as many computers as possible. Please check back for updates as we continue working on it! 

Same Problem when i start the game

Hey I played this at Nordic and loved it!

I don't know to send  you info on what my computer system is all abou

I don't know how to send you the info of what my computer is about

no

My computer is beyond everything you listed Windows 8.1 (because I hate wndows 10 on my laptop)
Processor 2.90 Hz etc etc.......................

(1 edit)

will this work with just some cheap headphone microphone or a laptop microphone or will i have to have a fancy gaming microphone ? also how do you find the pause menu?

Hey beegsrex - no need for anything expensive or fancy, cheap headphones ought to work just as well. If you'd like to use your laptop's microphone, just make sure to bump up the microphone sensitivity in the game's settings. Hope you like our game! :)

Hello!
I played your game with pleasure.
I used to play the game you uploaded to the demo version, but now I'm sorry for sharing the link.
I'm looking forward to seeing this game serviced quickly.
Thank you.

Our main character went Super Saiyan! ๐Ÿ”ฅ Love it! Thank you so much for sharing, and we're glad you enjoyed it! :)

did you know a famous guitar player on youtube played your game

i cant play it freezes at the uscgames part

Hi there, jhg! Sorry that there's been a bit of trouble getting the game started. Have you had a look at the system requirements? That might be where the issue is: 

  • OS: Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit), Mac OS X 10.9 or higher (64-bit)
  • Processor: 2.4 GHz or faster
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: GPU with 1+ GB of VRAM
    • Windows must have DirectX 11 capabilities
  • Storage: 3.9 GB available space

Hope that helps and you can get things up and running! 

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

Hello!
I wanted to tell you that popular Japanese voice actor Hanae Natsuki (่ŠฑๆฑŸ ๅคๆจน) 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 ๐Ÿ˜ƒ 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! โค๏ธ

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

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!
