Greenlight-Protest

The game Paranautical Activity has been denied access to Steam for having the temerity of having a Greenlight-Page. Read the full story here.

As a result of this, several developers have decided to take their games off Greenlight in Protest.

I am joining the protest, and as of now Badass Locomotive is no longer on Greenlight.

This is no way to treat Developers, especially Indies. We should not be punished for engaging the Greenlight-Process, which Steam has been pushing exclusively on smaller developers. in the meantime big-money Publishers can bypass it and get their games on Steam birectly, without any assurance of Quality or fun (see the fiasco that is The War Z).

In the meantime, you can still get Badass Locomotive here.

Balls

This Ludum Dare the theme was “Minimalism.” Finally, something feasible. Within the 48 hours I made the minimalistic and artsy Balls Balls Balls for it. And it’s fun :D

In Balls Balls Balls you play Neon-Shockwave-Golf by creating tiny shockwaves. Levels start simple, but ramps up in difficulty and complexity.

Features!

  • 30 unique and brain-bending level¬†
  • Beautifully minimalistic artstyle
  • Minimalistic yet deep gameplay, exploring all permutations of the present rules
  • Automatic Saving, so you can return at any time to continue
  • Organ-based soundtrack. Fuck yeah Organs.
  • Highscore-Tracking, so you can see who is absurdly better than you
  • Balls.
  • Seriously, What more could you want

I also made a timelapse, as usual. See 48 hours of work concentrated into 2 ultra-efficient minutes:

Results are also quite positive. Remember, these are out of 2346 games in total.
