A downloadable Handshake for Windows

Download NowName your own price


For Old Time’s Shake is a video game about meeting a series of old friends you’ve taught secret handshakes in the past. As you begin to reconnect with these old friends, they ask to perform those secret handshakes you taught them oh so long ago- only problem is, you don’t remember a single secret handshake maneuver. It’s your job to awkwardly fake your way through these secret handshakes and conversations, to preserve the vulnerable feelings of your old friends.

Note: This is the first 10 minutes or so of a full game that's coming out later this year. You can subscribe to get email updates about the game on my website: https://www.johnclarkgames.com/

This game is very quirky and I love how it doesn't take itself too seriously. The main character could have avoided all of this if they just used the same "secret" handshake with everyone and not let them know.

Oh. My. God. I am so thankful I stumbled across this. I laughed so hard, the writing is on point. Such a strange concept and you've pulled it off beautifully. Cannot wait to meet more characters and lore of this odd universe.

Thank you so much for playing! This is the first proper let's play of any of my games, and it was so gratifying to watch how much you enjoyed it, considering all the time I've spent on it. It's also nice to have someone play it who understands the intricacies of puns, as that is a fourth of the writing. So, again, thank you so much!
