PSHNGGG is a local two player swordfighting game with teeth-rattling clashes of steel. You and your opponent use both of your sticks to control dots (that somehow figured out how to hold a weapon) as they're tethered to a line . With more speed comes a longer sword and a more fatal strike. Flail yourself around like a tetherball wielding a greatsword or keep your blade dagger-sized by playing careful and precise. Don't get pushed too far back or it's the end of the line!

This version was created for Train Jam 2015 (Tutorial/title added post-jam)

Requires two controllers to play (esc to exit)

I don't see why this is tagged as anime, when there is literally no art at all


it has the feels of anime my dude idk

Single player wouldn’t really make sense for this, and would be much harder than you’d expect, due to the nature, I imagine AI would be tough to make for this.

and single player 


pls add keyboard

Android version?


Does Xbox controllers work

Great fun!

i am bored by the game i m seeing but this is the real game i am needing now i will play it all day with my friend nice work





WTF, U R NOT friknob u r noob, he is PRO

Whaaat the hell this feels so intense! Like my body hurts after a match of this. Very cool, it's like arm wrestling but with style!

try looking for a program that binds your keyboard to act as a controller


good idea, thanks


I cannot seem to understand how to get the sword


I still do not get how can it be so hard to be able to use the keyboard. i have only one controller.


pls add a single-player and keyboard mode
