Red-Handed is a stealth exploration game with a purposefully uncomfortable interface where you play as a spy working for the Fox Populi. You are infiltrating an enemy base to steal intelligence. However, the base is rife with patrolling officers who interrogate anyone exhibiting suspicious behavior, and it is up to you to make sure that the Spy goes through with his mission without panicking.

When confronted by guards, the player must quickly choose an appropriate excuse for their presence lest they get arrested.

The key to this game is to keep a steady hand over an ultrasonic proximity sensor, as failure to do so could result in indefinite incarceration, or worse.

Controls: Directional keys made of dough, ultrasonic proximity sensor.
