Most people seem to think this would be a fun party game for kids. Let me tell you about my experience. Obviously this is an "anything goes" game, and we embraced this exactly how it was meant to be embraced.

I'm with a group of 3 other people, all of whom are males about 16-19 years old. We have a small living room with an open space about 10 feet away from the computer/our buttons, and it's wide enough to give us ample room between each other. We have one keyboard and three xbox controllers all lined up in front of us on the computer's end of the living room. From left to right, I'm second in line.

As soon as our button pressing prompt appeared on the screen and we set off towards our controllers, I jumped on the person to my right and clung to him. (Un)fortunately, this is that one friend who is 200 lbs of raw muscle, so while he may have been stunned for a brief moment when I hit him, he simply dragged me along the carpet until we got near our controllers. He started mashing the buttons on his controller, and I panicked -- I reached over and managed to wrestle the controller away from him, and I then threw his controller across the room.

I looked back at my controller to see the person on my left was mashing my buttons in an attempt to ♥♥♥♥ me up. The only thing I could manage to do from my current sideways position was use my legs to get him away from my controller, which is exactly what I did: I kicked the ♥♥♥♥ out of him until he was forced to retreat to his own side of the room, at which point I turned my attention to my own controller. Only problem was, I didn't know how many times my button had been pressed, so I pressed it a few times in an attempt to get lucky.

I wasn't lucky. The winner of that round was the person on the very right, who won simply because no one decided to pummel him and ruin his day.

VERY FUN, especially with 4 people. However, I recommend using an old keyboard because trust me, they keys will break off.

This game is a tough sell for your friends. It's an interesting premise, but getting people who don't normally play vidya to join in and get "into" the game's challenges and getting physical is tricky.

It's cheaper than Twister though, and probably runs you the same odds of accidentally getting laid.

Excellent party game. Takes less than a minute for new players to learn the concept. Despite all the fun, it does get repetitive so you rarely want to play it for more than 20 mins at a time.

I wish I could get my friends to come over and play because that would make the game so much better (meant to be played with friends anyway). Interesting concept of a party game.

funny little party game for 1-8 players.
its mostly about reaction and pressing buttons.

but it can seriously get out of hand when the others do everything to win^^

its not a must have, but good for sparetime or when you have some friends around.

fair price!

Perhaps the worst indie game I have ever had the misfortune to play, B.U.T.T.O.N. has only two positives going for it. One, it works with the steam overlay, and two it seems stable and doesn't crash. Beyond that B.U.T.T.O.N. can not really be enjoyed. The game entirely consists of team competitions of pushing a button a certain number of times. Not a mix of buttons mind you, but the space bar or A button on the controller only. Needless to say, this isn't gameplay, it's a farce. Avoid this title, as I assure you that most players would not enjoy this even if it was given away.

This game is currently on sale in the Indieroyale.com
However as I already have most of those games I went to pay fullprice for this in the store.
And I'm glad I did.
Fun little game with a bunch of friend while you are (eventho they warn you not to do so) drunk as ♥♥♥♥.

Grab your buddies and a sixer of your favorite brew, and get ready to settle into some zany fun with B.U.T.T.O.N.

This cheeky little party game is perfect if you have a bunch of friends who like to get down on a board game from time to time. If you're going to be throwing a party with your friends, and they are even slightly interested in games, whether physical or computer based, I would highly recommend that you pick up B.U.T.T.O.N.

P.S.
If you drink alcohol while you play, don't break anything.

8/10 for original concept.

Especially when u are drunken, it is a very cool Game! I have to admit, that u better make some space around the Controllers or the Keyboard, cause Things could break... ;)
Definitely worth its Price and Fun to play with 2-4 People.
