Hands Off! is greenlit!

Release date: ASAP (Steam) | Out now (
"Hands Off is the most original two-player party game I've seen in a long long time."
- M. Joshua Cauller, Plus 10 Damage

Hands Off! is a game that tests your ambidexterity, mind and reflexes. You control two hands simultaneously trying to get pegs into holes before your opponent does.
Hit the other player (in the game, of course) to take pegs for yourself but always keep an eye on what your opponent’s other hand is doing (in the game, of course) - they might be trying to pull a fast one on you! Tunnel vision is your enemy, not your friend. Your friend is trying to steal your pegs.

Hands Off! can be played:
  • with each player controlling two hands at the same time (best way to test your brain/ambidexterity)
  • with one or more players sharing their pair of hands with another player (trade ambidexterity for teamwork)

  • Smack your opponent's hand to send their peg flying
  • Smack the pegs to put an end to any potential point scoring

Peg Control
  • Catch the peg you just sent flying or intercept your opponent's pass
  • Throw pegs on the perfect curve to score from across the arena

  • Use dummy throws, bounce pads and portals to trick your opponent
  • Use the arena meddles at opportune times to gain the upper hand

Key Features
  • Frantic, deep, competitive gameplay
  • Use your hands (and your brain) in ways you're not used to
  • 3 arena shapes (Rectangle, Square, Hexagon) that change the placement and angle of the holes
  • 3 arena types (Classic, Tech, Haunted) that modify the arena itself, such as bouncy pads and portal doors
  • Meddle buttons in each arena can be activated by either player to mix up the gameplay (and your brains)
  • Around 30 arena permutations
  • Set up the arena how you want it, or let the game decide

Features in Development
  • Single player modes (challenges, AI opponents)
  • More arena types
  • Achievements
