The project has gone commercial - Check out

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...

One of the best mods I have had the pleasure to enjoy. I wish more mods would stray from the path and engineer some new and varied game play such as this. Keep up the great work. I am eagerly awaiting the next episode.

You should release all the episodes in one pack and make an easy installer for UT3 mod nubs (who certainly don't include me :P)
