The Ball is an Unreal Engine 3 singleplayer action/puzzle game. The game will be released October 26, 2010 for PC on Steam, and it will also be available on Impulse, Gamersgate, D2D, and in shops world wide!
You play as an archaeologist working on the slopes of a dormant volcano somewhere in Mexico, and a technical malfunction gets you stuck in a cavern. It doesn't take long before you realize this is more than just a cave. You reveal ancient ruins that have been hidden from outsiders for centuries and discover a mysterious artifact, a gold and metal shelled Ball. As you venture deeper into the volcano, you reveal some of mankind's greatest secrets...

Playing from a first person perspective, you solve puzzles and crush monsters with a large physics driven ball, manipulated by the pushing and pulling forces of an ancient device.

    As for the release tomorrow/today. The game will go on sale Valve-time. So that means probably quite late for the Europeans. Some time in the evening.

    I just bought the game. The graphics are weird, it looks a bit like a cartoon, but it's a pretty good game.

    amazing and creative. dont let any of the critics bother u, they're just a bunch of old gamers expecting another "run and gun" fps. this game definitely gives more life to first person puzzles just like portal did and it's really inspiring just to play it. cant wait for your next game.

    horrible.....mod it was...mod it is.... I will never consider this as game, it's so boring and not fun that I asked Steam Support to remove it from my steam games to not be ashamed of my purchase... Now I feel peace and harmony again

    its not boring. the only problem is replayability, and lenght. no mods, no coop, no dlc, no nothing. at least they made a demo for guys like u. im looking forward to the next episode with the options mentioned above.

    I've read in your faq, that the game will be available in Europe by Iceberg Interactive. Will it come to middle-eastern Europe (Hungary in my case)? If so, when?

    almost the same as the mod, with some better models/textures. the transparent thing was a good idea at least.
