Slap Friends combines the fun of collecting your favorite game avatars with a wearable twist!
Plus it's your controller!


Inspired by games like QWOP and Gang Beasts were half the fun is figuring out how to control a seemingly uncontrollable thing we knew we wanted very fluid movements that hit the sweet spot between giving the player a perceived level of control while still being silly and unwieldy.

SLAP FRIENDS is a 2 player physical slap fight simulator that combines motion control with an adorable plushy wearable character! Watch the video below to find out more!

Lightweight accelerometers turn our  custom fashionable hat characters into functional game controlling puppets! 


I looked at awesome games like Push Me Pull You and Realistic Kissing simulator among other "wet-noodle" or "rag-doll" games and while they had the look I wanted as far as a flat cartoon asthetic I was very adamant about having art along the LENTH of the characters arms and a 2D engine would not deform the right way so we went with Unity and just made a mesh and slapped a texture on it! (pun intended). We simply used an orthographic camera and flat "toon" shader and you would never know it was 3D! 

You will get tired WAY before you get bored.
