The project has gone commercial - Check out www.moddb.com/games/the-ball


The Ball is an indie singleplay action/puzzle game, running on Unreal Engine 3, for PC. The expected release date is spring 2010. The project started out as a mod for UT3, but has since gone stand alone.

  • Best Singleplay Mod of 2008 according to ModDB MOTY 2008
  • Five-time first place winner in the UT3 MakeSomethingUnreal Contest
  • Used by Epic Games' to promote their UDK release

The Ball is an innovative action adventure game with six hours of singleplayer gameplay.
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 an archaeologist working on the slopes of a dormant volcano somewhere in Mexico, you get stuck in an underground 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...

Very good! I'm just about done with the second chapter. I love the environment, it is very captivating and sets a great tone and feel of mystery and magic while playing.

Ok, first off, awesome mod! One of the best i have played. I have a problem though. When Teotl came out, i played this mod all the time. When I tried to play Hueca, i can't play it. Everyime after the toltec studios logo, it freezes. I have tried almost everything to fix it. Help would be greatly appreciated. And it's not just this mod, but some others too. e-mail me at johnpinky7@yahoo.com.
Thanks
