Watch a multiplayer wrestling game that's part 'CatDog,' part Noby Noby Boy

Push Me Pull You, developed by indie studio House House, continues the recent renaissance of local multiplayer titles with a quirky game in which four players — sharing two bodies — wrestle for control of a ball.

The four-person team at Melbourne, Australia-based House House released gameplay footage from the alpha version of Push Me Pull You today, showing off a project they've been working on since December. House House debuted the title at That Venus Patrol and Wild Rumpus Party during the 2014 Game Developers Conference.

In Push Me Pull You, the two players on each team show up as the two heads of an elongated cylindrical body that can stretch and contract — think of it as CatDog meets Noby Noby Boy. The figures compete on a round court, and attempt to secure possession of a ball and keep it in their half of the court. The video features audio from the four members of House House playing the round that's being shown off, so you can hear the unique nature of the communication and teamwork that's required in Push Me Pull You.

House House is developing Push Me Pull You for Linux, Mac and Windows, and plans to release it in late 2014.
