Japan and Linux

6 Marzec 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 Luty 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.

Przyjemny shmups ze śliczną grafiką, wyglądającą jak bazgroły na marginesach w zeszycie. Duży arsenał, w tym bardzo ciekawe bronie do walki wręcz, ulepszenia, tarcze i masa innych rozmaitości. Gra mogłaby być trochę dłuższa i trudniejsza, jest co prawda infinity mode, ale ponieważ wykorzystuje wrogów i lokacje z kampanii szybko się nudzi. Wadą są też słabo zrealizowane elementy platformowe. Ale poza tymi dwoma zgrzytami grało mi się bardzo dobrze i szczerze polecam fanom gatunku.

Jeez, for $3 what is there to complain about here? Nothing. Nice little game. It's like an old arcade side scroller which is a bit of a walk down memory lane, playing things like 'R-Type' back in the day. Graphics are interesting. Music does the job. Nice to see they went straight for mouse control not the x-box controller. Buy it and give the developers a couple of bucks to encourage them on their future path of game design.

This game here, for the price its going is more than worth it. Just to be able to walk around and look at the art style is enough for me It's absolutely beautiful. I'd love to see some clones of this art style work its way into other genres, because im really enjoying looking at it.

As far as the gameplay itself, i have to admit it does leave a bit to be desired. Theres nothing really wrong with it so far from what ive seen, but there isnt anything groundbreaking either. It is a simple shoot em up, with simple controls. Although i see there is a lot of upgrading that can be done to your ship so that may change later on in the game, there may just be tools to come that make the gameplay more complex.

My opinion is, if you're even the slightest bit interested, go ahead and grab it now while its on sale. Hell, grab it while its not on sale. $4? Extremely nice game for that price. AND it drops trading cards, so you could get a bit of that 3-4 dollars back if you wish

Ballpoint Universe is truly an astonishing game with a unique artstyle since everything in the game is drawn with a ballpoint pen! The graphics are so detailed and you can really see how much love and passion has gone into making the game. For this to be a game made by only three people, it's amazing.

Now that I've gotten that covered let's talk a little bit about the key features and gameplay. The story isn't too linear and you can choose if you want to do a mission or not which is good because it means that you are not going to be stuck on a part just because you are unable to beat it. You can in a sense explore the hand drawn world freely just to admire the artstyle and graphics. The controls are pretty good although the mouse might sometimes bug out a bit but it doesn't seem to be such a huge deal. The game is a shoot-em-up adventure indie game and even though I don't consider myself a big shoot-em-up fan this is really quite enjoyable. The whole shoot-em-up aspect of the game is relatively well excecuted and it is fun blowing evil doodles out of the sky.
There is a fair amount of customization/personalization of your spaceship and there seems to be a lot of different weapons and accessories. The currency ingame is ink which makes sense since that is what everyone and everything in the game is made of. The ink that you collect through missions can be used for things like weapons for your ship and spinning the wheel of fortune for more ink.

As for the story there is some but for the hardcore story fans it might be too little of it but this isn't the kind of game that would need a really heavy story. If I was to try and explain the story I would probably say that it is basically about a doodle who is helping his fellow doodles in the fight against the evil doodles which in the game are called Logicians.
The game also features some great relaxing music and even though the tracks are pretty repetetive you don't want to turn it off.

It costs barely anything and you could easily get several hours out of it. Even though I haven't dived into it too deeply yet I can see myself playing it for more than a few hours when I get the chance. Even if you aren't quite sure if you want to buy it or not you should really consider it since it really is an experience to say the least. Innovative games like this one is what makes me love indie titles as much as I do.

I won't deny that the game has a few flaws but I believe that even the harshest critic could have a really good time if you try to see what the game does good instead of what it does bad.

An overall great game and for the little money that you spend on it, you get so much out of it that it kind of is a must buy for almost everyone.
