The Ball is set to be released on May 7, 2009! We now have 5 large singleplay levels offering at least 4 hours of gameplay to new players!

Since the last newspost here at ModDB our project has won the ModDB MOTY Best Singleplayer Mod of 2008 award, and we have won a 3rd place Best Mod in the MakesomethingUnreal Contest Phase 2, and a 1st place Best Use of Physics. We now hold three first places in the MSU contest.

The Ball - The Gorilla The Ball - The Gorilla The Ball : Teotl - The Second City of Gold The Ball : Teotl - The Second City of Gold The Ball : Teotl - The Second City of Gold The Ball : Teotl - The Second City of Gold

Gorilla by Pestibug and animation by Whackzero. The indoor level shot by Setheran, and the remaining screenshots are a combined effort from Hourences, Setheran, and Sklare.

Half of the last level still has to be scripted, and we have yet to implement our story. Also the gorilla is not fully implemented yet, and our mummies require some additional work. That aside however, we are almost there. We are working on our own menu right now and it is all starting to look very neat and very polished.

Lango has joined our team as a programmer and he is focusing on AI. Daze joined our team as a Level Designer, primarily for our August release, and my long time modding buddy Mr.Prophet has rewritten our story a bit. We are however looking for a voice actor!

Voice Actor:

  • Will be telling our story - our story is less than half a page worth of text so it is not a lot of work.
  • A standard male voice with a neutral accent - think Hollywood voice over style
  • You need to have a decent microphone and a recording environment with no background noise

Looks great, I just recently bought UT3 and I was curious if each release of this mod is separate or is each new one cumulative of the previous ones?

Yup, each version also includes touched up previous releases. I am considering simply renaming every release to just The Ball to clear up confusing.

If you have not played the previous (current) release yet it would be better not to and wait for our release in May, as it will offer a much more polished package and we redid entire bits and pieces of the original two releases as well.
