Push Me Pull You by House House (Melbourne, Australia) is a cooperative physics-based sumo-soccer game. Working together, players pilot sports monsters: stretching, contracting, pushing, and shoving to keep a ball on their side of the court. Push Me Pull You was created amidst a renewed interest in local multiplayer games, and like many of these titles, it borrows the formal qualities of sports without simulating any particular sport. The game’s treatment of bodies evokes a delightful sense of disgust, adding a level of wry humor to its rich, fast-paced gameplay.

Push Me Pull You is currently in development and will be released to the public later this year.
