Description of Dodgeball:
Dodgeball is a full game conversion based on the Source Engine. This engine was chosen because of its
use of the Havoc physics engine which will have a huge impact on the feel of this game. Dodgeball will
be a game based on the sport we all love. This is a game designed with you in mind. We are creating an
amazing innovative gameplay experience and focusing on the specific items that will make this game stand
out from the crowd. Dodgeball is available with up to 16 on 16 matches for pure hilarious adrenaline
pumping fun! We are in the process of taking full use of the Havoc physics engine to add to the gameplay
experience. One of the most important things about Dodgeball is the competition. We will be hosting and
facilitating competitions and currently have a forum up at Dodgeball.xsystemmods.com where
teams (clans) can begin to recruit.
