Horrorsport: Push Me, Pull You Released

I've played Push Me, Pull You [official site] for years at events I've helped run, revelling in its Cronenbergian wrestleball, but only today did it graduate from the multiplayer party circuit to an actual proper game released on PC. PMPY is a local multiplayer ballsport played by eerie tubefolk with a head and hands at both end. Tubefolk try to keep hold of the ball,…

Push Me, Pull You Wriggles Its Way to PC Next Week

House House's oddball project pits two-headed sausage people against each other in a slappy wrestling match. The dev team describes it as a game "about friendship and wrestling". Charming stuff.…

Push Me Pull Still The Grossest Local Multiplayer Sport

David Cronenberg’s Wrestleball: Push Me Pull You

Once you see a terrible knot of arms and heads and heads and arms and writhing endless torsos, curiosity demands a second look. Adorable yet slightly nightmarish two-headed, four-armed, sausage people like sports too, you know. We've been delighted and horrified by Push Me Pull You before, the 2v2 local multiplayer ballgame where each player controls one end of a stretchy meatmonster, trying to keep…

Push Me Pull You Is Utter Terror Attached To Insane Delight

The first thing I remember from Push Me Pull You isn't even the game itself. It's laughter. I'd heard about it all week during GDC, and I finally witnessed people playing it projected on a ceiling at the Unwinnable House. They couldn't stop giggling. It came in bone-shivering writhes and ribcage-pounding bursts. Upon witnessing the game itself and noting that the whole thing was centered…
