Indie games often innovate the gaming industry in many ways and One Hand Clapping is no different as it aims to include the player's voice in the experience. The game is controlled primarily with a microphone and tasks players with solving musical puzzles in a unique musical landscape. One Hand Clapping does require players to use their voice, but also caters to those who lack singing ability by offering the options to simply hum or whistle along with the game's musical cues.
In addition to unique gameplay, One Hand Clapping places players in a truly original world. The landscapes are painted in bright and vibrant colors and are populated with thoughtful character design that is eye-catching and whimsical. This world design plays well into One Hand Clapping, as exploration is given a good deal of emphasis, along with its musical aspects.
