Rolling Hamster release date Steam

Flip has surprisingly launched Rolling Hamster on Steam, a super-cute racing game that you can play with only one button. Yep, that's right — you don't even have to steer!

Rolling Hamster was one of many games announced as part of AG French Direct, a video presentation run by the gaming site That same site also released an associated news post detailing the game.

1–4 players can jump into the game world and get right to racing. Unlike most racing games, however, you won't need to worry about steering: you completely control your hamster-powered vehicle with just one button.

Essentially, Rolling Hamster plays a lot like those electric slot car sets many of us enjoyed as kids. It also shares many of the same hazards, however — accelerate at the wrong time and you'll go flying off the track and into the abyss. As you're all on the same track, you can also choose to speed up behind one of your unfortunate opponents and bump them off of the track.

Race with Your Friends in Rolling Hamster, Now Available on Steam

Rolling Hamster looks like it'll be a fair amount of fun to play with your friends, although it has a couple of caveats: there is no controller support at launch and it doesn't have online multiplayer. (Thankfully, it does work with Steam's Remote Play feature.)

There are a total of 15 tracks across 3 worlds to enjoy at launch, although the developers promise to release more tracks to race on in future updates. If this racing game seems like your kind of jam, you can buy Rolling Hamster on Steam for just $4.49 or your regional equivalent.
