No Man’s Survival: The Solus Project’s Looking Good

It's probably not fair to either game to invoke No Man's Sky when talking about upcoming sci-fi survival offering The Solus Project [official site], but both the reddish-pink colour palette and the heavy use of tricorders (let's not kid ourselves, eh?) does put me in mind of Hello Games' newbie. The Solus Project is billed as a survival game, but more in the classical sense…

GLaDOS Invades The Potato Sack

Portal 2, which appears next Tuesday (how did that sneak up on us so fast?!), continues sneaking its way into other games. I imagine using portals. There must have been a more imaginative way of my phrasing that. Almost every member of the Potato Sack has gained content relating to the cryptic influence of GlaDOS, including Killing Floor, The Ball, RUSH, Super Meat Boy, Toki…

Root Maneuver: The Potato Sack Bundle

What are you doing right now? Working? Smiling? Breathing? Well, stop with that nonsense and go straight over to the Steam page for The Potato Sack, a new bundle of indie games offering £108's worth of great indie games, including Amnesia, Super Meat Boy, Toki Tori (which you can read Kieron shouting about here), The Ball (which Jim and John talk about here) and Defense…

The Ball: The Interview

In the relatively thin history of first-person puzzle games, The Ball stands out as having the largest metal ball and also the most terrifying ape. It was knowledge of these two facts which motivated us to speak to Sjoerd "Hourences" DeJong, bossman at Teotl, and project lead on The Ball, and ask him all about matters pertaining to the spooky Unreal-powered puzzler.

The Demo Of The Ball

Just over a week back, Jim and I found ourselves recommending you play The Ball. A full-length first-person puzzler, which costs £15. "But £15!" you cried. "That's enough to get almost one large pizza at Dominos!" You already know you like a large pizza at a price so unbelievably high that it makes your insides clench, but how are you supposed to know if you…

No Programmer No Problem:Artist-Only Games

The current trend towards big middleware developers giving their engines away for free is only going to yield great things. With the intimidating financial up-frontery removed, people with wonderful ideas, a ton of untapped talent and no money will be able to create and publish games made in the likes of Unreal 3 and Unity; no doubt we'll be posting about many such projects here…

Screwball Scramble: The Ball Trailer

You may well have previously played The Ball. Toltec Studio's Unreal 3 mod generated a lot of attention back in 2008 during development, and then was released in 2009. It's sort of Weighted Companion Cube: The Movie. You move around the world in first person, but you interact by manipulating a large lead ball. It's used for puzzle solving, as well as crushing your foes.…

Rolling Off The Production Line: The Ball

Thanks to those readers who pointed out that The Ball, an Unreal Tournament 3 mod that's featured heavily in the current Make Something Unreal competition, is now set to be released as a commercial product in Spring 2010, according to the official site. Presumably Toltec Studios are now taking advantage of the new UDK stuff (judging by this UDK demo), and working the mod into…

To Sphere Is Human: The Ball Trailer

Schizoslayer pointed me at the trailer for the forthcoming Unreal Tournament 3 mod The Ball. It's out on the 7th, and the trailer really looks quite exciting. It's got a mesoamerican theme to its first person puzzling, and has the vague vibe of you being a tiny person in a world of Marble Madness. Except with stress on the word "Madness". It's got that horror-movie…
