Hey everyone! Short update here.

Yesterday I came up with an idea to give the ball a personality. A face. The game is about a ball trying to find it's way to a new home, however, the ball felt very lifeless. Well no more! Behold!

Stock face

However, not only did I decide to add a face to the ball, I felt that giving players some customization options would be nice. So I programmed a customization menu. At the moment thew user can only select different eyes, however other accessories can be added later if desired.

Customize yo' ball!
The customization window.

In-Game Customizations
How the balls look in-game with the eyes. (Note - Instead of the mad eyes, I used the cyclopes eye, to show the kind of diversity which will be offered for players.)

Really cool! It would add lots of replay value if you could collect new body parts to use in the game.

Yeah, that's the idea. After every world new stuff gets unlocked. We're also experimenting with mouths, which would add even more customization options.

Edit: Another bit of value added is the timer by the way. There's just a desire in us to want to beat our own scores. I keep going back trying to beat my best times.

My balls already have some personality, but being able to customize my balls further would be awesome. :)

(Make a game about balls and get ball jokes ;P )

Seriously though, it's nice, customization is always welcome.
