Default Upcoming game - The Ball.

Was looking through the press announcements and came across the following.

Homepage of the award winning game The Ball

Media is available here Media Homepage of the award winning game The Ball

Looks very interesting.

A mix of Zombies, portal and ball controlled with the gravity gun from Half Life.

I think I will like it.

Cheers, Ulric

Hrmmm... I fail to see the portal reference.

Not for me - though it does look pretty in places

Yeah, the publishers (who got their start in the industry from making a mod and taking it commercial - Red Orchestra) seem to be looking for other games to do this with.

They did it very well with Killing Floor.

They seem to be able to pick a winner.
