Ballistick is an homage to the stick figure flash videos of the early 2000’s. It combines tactical realism and over-the-top violence to capture the absurdity of the era. The player will navigate multiple planes of two dimensional combat as they gun their way to the objective. Be sure to take cover when the gun runs dry, because a reload isn't just a click away. Each action of the reload sequence requires input from the player, from pulling out magazines to chambering rounds. The player will even have to pump shotguns and pull the pin out of grenades. Ballistick is reexamining the way we design gun mechanics. So keep your head down, and stick it to 'em.

Hey Awez,

I actually replied last night but it said it needed to get approved by a moderator. I'll give it until tonight to see if it shows up, if not I'm happy to chat through indieDB instead. Gist was, great feedback, a lot of the things you mentioned were things that we actually did want to fix ourselves, so we were glad to hear you had the same thoughts.

This over all is a pretty good game, but it would seem that the shotgun is practically useless. I'll get right up in an opponents face, and it still takes 4 to 6 hits to kill them. Also, sometimes the reload animations get stuck on the final arrow press. Other than that though, I love it! It really reminds me of xiao xiao or toughluck anims.

Thanks for the feedback! I tweaked the shotgun so it is much more effective now (maybe too powerful, but we'll see). I'll look into the reload bug. There is a feature where if you use the last bullet in the gun you have to hit the forward arrow after reloading, to simulate racking the slide to add a bullet to the chamber. Maybe that's it, but I'll definitely check it out. Look for your username in the special thanks when the game ships!

Looks promising but the latest demo contains many bugs in cover system. Like the bad guy is shooting you but after a while he's out of ammo but it's pain in the a** to kill him because he's almost invincible even tho I'm shooting him from behind where he is not covered.

Good catch! I looked into that bug and from what I can tell it was happening only with the low cover. I fixed it so if an enemy is shot from behind, they die as they should. You will see the fix in the next build. As a thank you for catching it, I'll add your username to the special thanks in the credits of the shipped game. Let me know if you find any more!

That is awesome because I miss all those Stick flash videos. They used to be like...HUGE and now they're like, gone.
