Mindball Play 1.0 released!

Hi!

This update to Mindball Play signals the end of our Early Access period. We can't thank our early players enough for testing the game and giving us feedback! Thank you, and to new players, WELCOME!

We are now releasing two brand new racing tracks, Emerald Flow and Binary. Emerald Flow is a more traditional race track, with focus on taking corners and optimising your line. Binary is the complete opposite with multiple ways to get from start to finish, and many obstacles on the way! Both tracks have support for multiple laps!

We have cleaned our Time-Trial leaderboards by removing times set before ghost balls were implemented. This should ensure all leaderboard times have a correct ghost ball replay.

Our new Campaign mode has been tweaked and should be more interesting from the get-go! We have also updated our achievements and added lots of new unlockable skins! While we were on it, we also took the opportunity to add Steam Trading Cards and a short tutorial!

Last, but not least, we have now added support for eye tracking with Tobii! This means you can steer your ball 100% with your eyes! You can also combine headband with Tobii eyetracking for a totally unique, handless experience!

As always, we deeply appreciate any feedback and bug reports. Find us on social media or on the Steam forums!

See you on the tracks!

Why the name Mindball?

We are the makers of Mindball Game, a game where two people compete to be more focused. Mindball Game has been played by people all over the world and many have wished for their own Mindball. Now it's finally the time to make their wish come true!

How does playing with your brain work?

Your brain sends out electrical signals, all the time, without interruption. The technique used for reading (and presenting) the electrical signals from the brain is called EEG, (electroencephalography). Scientists have identified that you are focused when you produce a great amount of electrical signals with a high amplitude, within a specified frequency band. We use this technique and that knowledge in our Mindball Products.

The headband we use for moving the ball in Mindball Play picks up the electrical signals from your brain and sends them via Bluetooth. In Mindball Play our algorithm gives to what extent you are focused. We use that value to steer the ball; high focus makes the ball go faster and stay on track better, low focus makes the ball go slower or even fall off the track.

Have fun while you train your brain - prove your focus skills and practice your ability to achieve a calm mind with fun, engaging and challenging races.

Which headbands are supported?

Brainlink from Macrotellect.
For Brainlink you just need to pair the headband as a Bluetooth device and you are good to go.

Muse from Interaxon.
For Muse you need a bridge-app to handle the Bluetooth connection to the headband. Bridge-apps are available for Windows 10, Android and iOS here.

If you use a Muse headband, you can help steer your ball left or right by tilting your head to the sides. This is controlled by the gyro built in the headband.

Go Focus!
