A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

"Mechanical Feelings draws you in with it's clever use of interface and its mocking vision of the year 2016, but If you pay attention to the small details, there's a surprising amount of depth and narrative that can be discovered throughout its short playtime" - AlphaBetaGamer

This game is best played with headphones, but at the very least, you need to be able to hear the game.

Mechanical Feelings is a short, slice-of-life narrative adventure game with a one-of-a-kind control scheme: Players interact by gesturing on their keyboards, including swiping, drawing, and typing. Mechanical Feelings was made in under 48 hours (I was busy the first 24) for the Game Jolt GDC Game Jam, and all art, programming, and music was done by myself.

Honestly this game was amazing, you used the sounds from FreeSound.org in a wonderful manner. Also the swiping on the keyboard was hilarious and even though my hands hurt by the end of it, you had the player use it in a way that strengthened the game overall. The sounds, the keyboard swiping and the talking was enjoyable. Big fan of mechanical hands and I am sure your other games are as exquisite as this. 

I can't swipe with a mechanical keyboard, funnily enough

Oof yeah, did not consider that in the design! My apologies
