Did you watch those stick figure flash videos of the 2000's? Are you a fan of Newgrounds, Xiao Xiao, or Stick Death? If so, Ballistick is right up your alley. An homage to this generation of flash videos, Ballistick offers compelling 2D combat combined with tactical gameplay and hyper-realistic gun mechanics.

Infiltrate enemy strongholds
Massacre enemies with ten different weapons/gadgets
Stealth or guns blazing, you decide
Live the animations that you loved as a kid
Intensely realistic gore and gun mechanics
Manually add shells to your shotgun, drop the clip out of your M4, or toggle your safety

Relive the glory days of flash stick animation and kill some stick figures while you're at it.

So much news but so busy!

We are fast approaching the release date of Ballistick and we are cranking away in order to be ready. With that, I have forgotten to keep you all updated! Sorry, my bad. Again, big thank you to all those who helped us get Greenlight. This whole thing wouldn't have been possible without you.

Some awesome news:

Ballistick will be available on Green Man Gaming!

Ballistick will be available on Indie Game Stand!

Bomb Shelter Games will be attending Steam Dev Days in Seattle this October. Please let us know if you are going as well. We'd love to meet you all.

We created a new blog post about our Steam Greenlight process. You can read it in all its glory here: Bombsheltergames.com

We added trading cards, badges, backgrounds, and emoticons to the Ballistick Steam page (Store.steampowered.com)

We added easy mode to Ballistick (wimps). This allows the player to ignore all of the advanced gun mechanics (like manually dropping out the magazine and lifting in a new one).

Added an epic boss sequence

Added subtle artistic improvements like a subtle drop shadow and a cover indicator (you can see below)

New environments (the boat and the warehouse)

And I'm sure a dozen other things I forgot to mention.

If you haven't yet, you can download a very old and buggy demo here below (I plan on uploading a new on this weekend or next). And of course, you can pre-purchase the game here (both DRM and DRM-Free):

Ballistick releases October 15th 2016. Mark your calendars and get ready for the carnage.

Now back to work...

I can't play it :( In the main menu the cursor is hidden and i can't do anything with my keyboard or controller and the game keeps shifting through the buttons :(

Hmmm... Can I ask, what type of controller are you using?

Other solution: Unplug the controller, restart the game, and start with just the keyboard. It only hides the cursor if it detects you have a controller.

I actually already tried that :/ Still did this weird thing.
Well I wouldn't be surprised if it's incompatible with my controller. It's a cheap one. Thrustmaster Dual Analog 4. I never had any problems with it so far though. GTAV for example works perfectly with it.

Ok. I'll look into that model and see what's up. For now, the build should work with just the keyboard. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Also I went to add Karma to your post and clicked the wrong button! Now it won't let me take it back. Sorry about that.

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!
