With bravery and determination, he is on a quest to save his friends.
Oh yes, almost forgot - Wil is a ball made of glass, but don't be confused by his fragility! He has the heart of a lion in his chest (or somewhere in his body).

Hi, everyone,
From "UP Development" Studio. We are happy to present to you - "WIL".
WIL
It's a PC game and it's almost ready! We hope you'll like what we've done so far.

GAMEPLAY:

The main character in the game is called WIL. He is a ball made of glass, who can roll on the ground by moving the water that’s inside his body left or right. He cannot jump but he can use slings. They can be used not only for jumping, but also for gaining speed on the ground.
Here comes the tricky part – once activated the stretching of the sling cannot be reversed. The length of the jump depends on how long the player has hold on to the sling. It may seem easy at first, but controlling Wil , and using the slings requires very fine movement skills, quick reactions and good (feeling for) timing.
WIL
STORY:

The story is about Wil and his friends.
They are also made of glass but they aren't with the same form as Wil. They are actually jars, which have very distinctive personalities for themselves.
You can see some of them in our website, where the characters present themselves on a stage. Most of the jars however are to be discovered in the game.

The Gentleman

Their story is frightful and disturbing, for they have been kidnapped at the very beginning of our game. If it wasn't for Wil, who saw them being carried away, who knows what could've happened.
Luckily he was there when this terrible thing occurred, and thanks to his bravery and cunningness, he managed to come up with a plan.

Discovering that each one of his friends is held prisoner in a different location, and that these prisons were full of traps and sharp things (The biggest threat for a fragile glass ball ) he couldn't do anything, but to risk all and try to save them.
His plan was to fly with the help of some friendly birds, to every single prison and using his slings to overcome all dangers that lay before him, in order to save his friends.

However, as it often occurs, it turned out that it's easier said than done. The jars were being taken to 4 different locations, which were very far from each other. In each one of them there were 20 different prisons, with one jar as a prisoner.
Wil then understood he wouldn't be able to do this alone, and that he'll need some help.

This is the point where YOU come into the action. Take control of Wil and help him in his noble quest!
His fate and this of his friends lies in you hands!

PS: All the text above basically explains that there is a main character (Wil), friends that need to be saved, prisons, dangers, traps, sharp things ( brrr scary ), 4 chapters, 80 levels ( and more to be unlocked ), a mysterious evil, and above all bravery, despite the unspeakable risk of being broken to pieces... and all this in the name of Friendship.

Regards,
UP Dev Team.

Hey, thanks for the comment. Yes, the ball in this video isn't quite the final version that will be in the game. I hope, that for the demo we'll be able to make some adjustments on it.
It also doesn't look very good because I've made the video at very low resolution, since the game starts running slower on my PC if I try to do it with better quality.
Any further feedback will be welcomed too.
