Ready to play some ball? Grab a team, suit up, and climb inside your human! Prep its thrusters, lower its all-terrain wheels, and spin up that flailing magnet-arm. It's time for Regular Human Basketball!
This multiplayer party-starter from the makers of Crawl has your team wrestling to control your giant mechanical death machine. Yelling orders, flipping switches, and shootin' hoops in a post-apocalyptic basketball showdown.
Dave Lloyd and Barney Cumming (Powerhoof) originally made Regular Human Basketball for a local-multiplayer game jam in 2013, then eventually polished it up and released a free version in 2015.
An updated version of Regular Human Basketball was released on Steam on August 1st 2018, enhancing the original with online multiplayer, multiple arenas, updated gameplay, art and an all new soundtrack!
- Online + Splitscreen Multiplayer for 2 or more humans.
- Lifelike physics simulates over 4 human emotions.
- You and your teammates share control of the various parts of your human- including thrusters, magnet arm and all-terrain wheels.
- Six titanic arenas to ball in.
- Realistic basketball commentary from real human commentators.
- A pumping 80s hip-hop soundtrack that'll have you waving your arms in the air like you just don't exhibit the human ability to care!

Powerhoof is a two man independent games studio located in Melbourne, Australia. While both tinker in all aspects of game development, Barney Cumming is the preeminent artist and animator, and Dave Lloyd's background is in programming.
Their first project was Crawl - The dungeon crawler where your friends control the monsters. This was followed up by Regular Human Basketball, a multiplayer party-starter (no giant mechanical death-machines here), as wells as a plethora of smaller free titles.
Both members of the duo now have a pet project they're currently working on - Barney with Acid Knife, and Dave with The Drifter.
