Description

Use every single key and fall in love with your least sexy controller. You play as the young apprentice to Master QWERTY who takes you on a wild adventure across oceans, through temples and into dreams in the search for your inner key using the entire keyboard as your controller. Keyboard Sports – Saving QWERTY is a significantly expanded version of Keyboard Sports which premiered in the Humble Monthly November 2016 bundle — this new game uses even more keys!

This game will never be available on PlayStation, Xbox, iOS, or Android.

  • "Keyboard Sports turned my Spacebar into a couch and that is so darn delightful. Thank you for that, Keyboard Sports."
    - Chris Priestman, Kill Screen

  • "Keyboard Sports takes the entirety of your keyboard and turns it into a gamecontroller/landscape, as well as embracing the wordplay potential of the idea. It’s a really charming game."
    - Philippa Warr Rock Paper Shotgun

  • "the game isn’t actually a sports title; instead, it’s more of an adventure game where just moving around can be a challenge. Unlike most PC games, Keyboard Sports doesn’t just use a select few keys — instead, it utilizes all of them."
