Currently in development and local multiplayer only for now, Hammer Dongers has an absolutely brilliant idea that I can't wait to see developed further.

In Hammer Dongers, you run around a small arena and smash your hammer into the ground. Eventually, the ground will crumble away and perhaps take your opponent with it. Simple and effective gameplay for a fun time. Personally, I think it's a brilliant idea for a party game, take a look:

The developer made it clear it's not finished and under active development. While it's meant to be a local multiplayer game, it seems some sort of single-player is planned for it too but that will come later. It's had a Linux build for a little while too, added back in early January this year.

I've played a little of it myself with a partner and it's an absolute riot, the kind of fun that has you each getting louder as you get caught up in the moment.

To be honest, this wasn't the first thing that came to my mind with a game with "dongers" in the title...
Quoting: TheSHEEEPTo be honest, this wasn't the first thing that came to my mind with a game with "dongers" in the title...

Yeah, came here to say basically the same thing. When I saw the title, I did a double-take.

I find it humorous that "dong" can be used as a verb, and subsequently there's a key/controller binding for "dong."

When you're playing two-player, does that mean you're "double-donging"?

[EDIT] I should add that this game does look like great fun...even if it has a questionable name
