The Ball - Teotl has finally been released! Following the success of Oztoc and Pehua, Teotl continues the story and offers over four hours of singleplay gameplay.

Posted by Hourences on May 8th, 2009

It took our team 7 months, but we have finished and released the third installment of The Ball - Teotl!

  • At least twice as big as the previous release
  • We have redone large parts of the first three levels
  • More than 4 hours of singleplay gameplay
  • 100 Percent all new art and content
  • Over 16 secret to discover and one very hard to find shortcut.
  • Solve puzzles and fight monsters in a mysterious world deep inside a volcano!
  • Previous installments have won a triple first prize in the Make Something Unreal contest and was awarded "Best Singleplay Mod of 2008" by ModDB.

You must have Patch 2.0 for UT3 installed or above. You must manually remove any previous versions of the mod you may have installed.

The previous (and updated) releases of this mod are also included in Teotl - there is no need to download Oztoc and Pehua separately if you have not played those yet. In fact, it will not function if you try to combine this version with the two previous ones.

And some new screenshots - showing off the boss fight with our zombie gorilla.

It should yes. We have only tested it with regular and steam. There is no reason why it shouldn't work with other versions.
