Have you ever seen a square ball before? No? Then you should take a closer look at this. You play as a square ball and you're trying to catch up with your usual looking ball friends. But once you think you caught up to them, they run away from you and you keep running after them. But the path is not that easy - there obstacles in your way: spikes and arrows. No matter how unusual you look, these objects can still poke and kill you. So please be careful!
A new patch will be released for Squaball in 1 weeks time. The new patch will include some minor bug fixes and more platforms! (100% Linux, not sure about Mac).

Last week and sales
Since the release of Squaball at last Friday (2013-11-08) I was surprised both in bad and in good ways. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to discuss this, but my game sold 2 copies. It kinda feels really bad, because I was expecting somewhere around 10 people by the end of the week. Since Squaball is no longer on the front page, there is no way I'm gonna reach that goal. Unless by some miracle someone famous accidentally buys my game and makes a video about it.. But that isn't going to happen. Even though I feel kinda sad I didn't reach my goal, I also feel kinda good, because these are my first 2 sales ever!
The new patch that I'm going to upload will contain these features / fix these bugs:
- Hopefully fixed collision (there were some moments when you would randomly get stuck for no reason)
- You will be able to change whether you want to jump after clicking Jump button or Jump whenever your jump button is down.
Basically if you want the character to jump only when you CLICK or PRESS jump key, than set the condition to "press". If you want character to always jump when you're holding jump key, set the condition to "hold".
- Squaball will be coming to Linux (Hopefully it will work on all Linux machines and versions)
- Squaball might be coming to Mac (Not sure yet. I can't get my hands on any Mac to test my game.)
I will be trying to spread the word about Squaball as well as working on my next small project.
