Japan and Linux

6 mars 2014

We're pleased to announce two big things! First, Ballpoint Universe will be available in Japanese starting today. Thanks to Unity Games Japan, we have a fully localized Japanese version! We'll be premiering the game at BitSummit this evening. EXCITE

Another big dealio--

For our small but dedicated task force, the Linux version is now available! We tried to get everything working the same as the Windows version, however gamepad controls aren't available on Linux.

Anyways, thanks everyone! We're having a week-long sale in celebration of these two events. Enjoy~~

Linux version unofficially out.

19 février 2014

Testing some things with the Steam interface, so the game is technically downloable for linux, but has no guarantees of working as of yet. We will post a large post sometime later to announce it out officially.
Thanks for your patience.

Un grand défouloir, qui peut paraitre mou et fade au départ, mais qui devient rapidement explosif. Certes, assez répétitif (je recommande fortement de faire plusieurs fois le mod "infinite sky" pour amasser assez d'argent et bien améliorer le vaisseau avant de tenter le reste). Ce mode infinite sky s'apparente à un mode survival/arcade où on doit affronter plusieurs vagues d'ennemis et quelques boss. Pourtant, malgré la répétitivité, on y revient souvent.

En plus des phases de shoot, on retrouve des moments plus axés "plateforme", un peu dispensables mais jolis à voir et qui permettent de bien s'immerger dans l'univers.

Surement parce que contrôler librement son vaisseau par le biais de la souris, et tout dézinguer, c'est terriblement jouissif

Visuellement c'est bluffant, un style hors du commun et original. Des musiques qui collent bien au background surréaliste.

Pour tout les amateurs de shoot'em up survolté qui' n'ont pas peur de refaire plusieurs fois un même niveau, mais surtout ceux qui pendant de nombreuses heures ont gribouillé toutes sortes de chimères et paysages fantasmagoriques avec un crayon et une feuille. Je fais partie de ces gens là, voir ces moments d'ennui mêlés de solitude et de rêverie prendre vie a été une expérience géniale.

Si l’idée de base d’associer plate-forme et shoot’em up peut sembler étrange, il faut bien avouer qu’elle fonctionne finalement bien. Les phases à pied permettent de se détendre un peu entre deux missions à bord de votre vaisseau. Le style graphique choisi apporte au jeu une ambiance totalement inédite. Les variations de couleur permettent de bien différencier les zones et offrent une bonne lisibilité. Et c’est plutôt amusant de voir que par endroit les lignes de la feuille quadrillée sur laquelle ont été dessinés les sprites ont été gardées. Vendu à petit prix, je le conseille vraiment aux joueurs aimant le shoot’em up.

Well, this one really caught me by surprise. When I first saw Ballpoint Universe - Infinite on Steam Greenlight it didn't really caught my attention but the more I saw it on several youtube videos and some gaming website news the more I got fond of the artstyle, slowly I started developing a certain "appreciation" for the fact that everything on the game was hand drawn. Then when I got the game and finally played I was completely blown away by it, the way that the 2D sprites that were completely hand drawn and the way the animations were made really fitted the world and the background and everything felt really smooth. You can say that Ballpoint Universe is both a platformer and a sidescrolling shooter, like something like Syder Arcade. You control your little doll with the mouse, and let me warn you, it is kinda frustrating at the begining because your character moves towards where you have the cursor so in certain parts where high precision platforming is required you might fail a few times until you get the hang of it. Now, the shooting part is where you'll spend most of your time probably, at the begining of each stage you get to equip, upgrade or buy parts for your ship. Your ship has 4 slots, one on the top which starts out with a blade that activates when you're next to an enemy, one on the bottom which at first has a machine gun that fires in short bursts, one which is the hull of the ship and the last one is your active ability which you can use after you kill a certain number of enemies and you "build" up your star counter, it basicly works like a combo system. By upgrading your weapons you get increased range, bigger spread, bigger magazines / faster reload time, by upgrading your hull you can get various benefits such as increased health, homing missiles etc and by upgrading your active ability I believe it only improves the performance of that ability. These upgrades and new parts can be acquired by spending ink which is the game currency and you can get it by killing enemies, destroying obstacles and achieving a higher rank on a mission. Each mission has 3 ranks which you can get by completing them, if you don't die a single time during that mission or if you recover a life you'll end the mission with 5 lifes and that will give you the gold rank, having atleast lifes by the end of the mission will grant you the silver rank and 1 life will grant you the bronze rank. If I recall correctly the bronze rank gives you 100 ink while the silver rank gives you 200 ink and the gold rank gives you a collectible, which as the name indicates, you can collect either by getting gold rank on all the missions and by finding some hidden in the levels. The shooting gameplay is fairly standard but yet really satisfying, your melee weapon triggers as soon as you get in range of an enemy or obstacle and by left clicking you trigger your ranged weapon and eventually when you build up your star meter the middle mouse button will trigger your special ability, usually by the end of the mission you will fight a boss and as the game progresses the game throws at you more and more enemies which you can either kill or completly avoid. Overall I think that where the game really shines is it's graphical presentation, the soundtrack (which is really good, dare I say Electronic Super Joy level of awesomeness) and the plot. I do realize that the plot might not be that interesting for some people because it's really kind of weird but I do believe that given the graphic style chosen by the developer it makes sense and it really fits together. That said I honestly think this is a very good game which surprised me alot, I wasn't really expecting this to be this polished and really well put together, it certainly is a must play for indie games fans and art enthusiasts.

Shmup-wise, I appreciate the lack of inertia. This is actually a mixture of exploration platformer and shmup stages. The latter are fun, but don't expect CAVE-worth stuff. The beautiful art style can unfortunately cause some confusion when heavy flak is exploding everywhere and the enemy waves are kind of spaced out between long sections of nothing (a usual tell-tale sign of lack of knowledge of the genre).

STILL, it's a unique, fun game with one of the most beautiful art styles around. It's impossible not to love Doodle, the main character, and admire the crazy ballpoint ships and nice looking bosses shooting around. And the price is ridiculous, way too cheap for all it has to offer, including some sensible achievements! (Thank god the devs for not including collect-a-thons in the achievements THANKS!)

I had a good time playing this game. The developers could have gotten really evil with their achievements (like finding all gold stickers or buy EVERY upgrade or something like that) but they didn't. All of the achievements are reasonable without being too easy. There's nothing that requires dozens of hours of grinding like almost every other game in my library seems to involve. I also like the tokens that bring you to the highest level you've reached in infinite mode. It makes it so you are always making progress. I've found that once a game frustrates me, I tend to just stop playing and move on to something else, but this game has managed to stay fun and non-annoying through the whole experience.
