Do you want to know what it's like to be a ham sandwich?

Yes. Yes you do.

Ham Sandwich Simulator lets you experience the true feelings of being a ham sandwich. Now with two more kinds of sandwiches for endless replayability!

This release is my HD remake of the version I released two years ago.

  • Accurate simulation of being a ham sandwich, made with help of experts of sandwichology.
  • Over four different kinds of playable sandwiches (five to be precise)!
  • Gripping story featuring a wide cast of sandwiches.

Coming soon:

  • Sandwich customisation


Q: Why???
A: I see that you are confused about the idea of why Ham Sandwich Simulator exists. This video should clarify that. And no, I'm not German.

Q: The cursor disappears/the game breaks with multiple monitors. How can I fix this?
A: The only fix I've found so far is to hold the alt key as the game launches and setting your desired resolution and monitor settings there.

Q: When I pick a mode, the game stops.
A: That's not a bug, that's the game. This game is the best simulation of what it's like to be a ham sandwich. Ham sandwiches don't have eyes, they don't have ears and they don't have legs. Ham Sandwich Simulator is a game about the deeper emotions. Feeling the butter and the meat inside you. The constant fear of being eaten. That's what Ham Sandwich Simulator is all about.

Q: I think I've found a bug not listed here, what should I do?
A: I'd appreciate it if you could send a bug report to bug@kscarlett.com, and I'll see if I can fix it when I have some time.

Hello, I tried to install HamSandwichSim_Setup_64.exe but there is problem. It says:

[There should be 'Ham Sandwich Simulator_Data'

folder next to the executable]

Do you have any solution for this problem?


Sorry for the late reply. This seems to be a problem with the 64 bit installer. As the download page says, the 32 bit version is recommended, because it doesn't change much, and I've tested that version more.

Hello kscarlett,

I tried the 32 bit version but it doesn't work too. I have the same message:

[There should be 'Ham Sandwich Simulator_Data'

folder next to the executable]
