As an archaeologist working on the slopes of a dormant volcano somewhere in Mexico, 1940, you get stuck in a 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…

The results of the grand finals of the Make Something Unreal contest were announced yesterday at the DICE Summit in Las Vegas - The Ball came second! After running for over one and a half year, the contest has finally come to an end. It has been quite a ride, and we are very happy with how we have scored throughout the contest!

In other news, our trailer has now also appeared on GameTrailers. Apperantly our name is so simple that it is controversial for many, which is good for our publicty.


More and more news sites are also picking up our trailer, for example:RockPaperShotgun or the big Dutch website Gamer.nl

We have also updated our FAQ a little bit. Notable new Q&A's are "Isn't this a mod for Unreal Tournament 3?" and "I have already played the mod version, why would I need to get the full game?"

We would also like to remind people that this will not be a full priced game. We are aiming for a price somewhere around 20EUR. We don't know exactly how much yet, but definitely not 50EUR.

Last but not least, we would like to thank everybody here that has supported The Ball throughout the contest. Your support is very important to us!

Yeah, it's great looking. A whole game based on the Gravity gun from Half-Life...I'd be amazed if it somehow didn't turn out amazing.
