About

 

Ball Pit Simulator is a retro 2D platformer set inside a cursed ball pit.

The rules of the ball pit are simple, get to the exit without touching a green ball. Green balls can take many shapes such as-

  • Ball
  • Crab
  • Wandering Eye
  • Hulking Golem
  • Dragon
  • and much much more

Ball Pit Simulator takes inspiration from Super Meat Boy and Super Mario Bros. The first version of Ball Pit Sim was made back in 2015 as a silly game concept for my friends to play. As I got better thorough the years at making games and designing graphics I returned to the Ball PIt!!!

 

THE FINISHED GAME

After Ball Pit Simulator is funded and finished it will include multiple themed stages all including unique ball themed enemies and bosses. Most of the funds will go to hiring a composer to improve the quality of ball pit.

With the stretch goals Ball Pit can be even better!!!

  • $15,000 - unlocks Mobile Release to IOS and Android
  • $25,000 - unlocks Co-Op Campaign upon release (excluded from mobile version)
  • $40,000 - unlocks Alternate Campaign upon release following the story of a new character (available on mobile version)

Risks and challenges

Challenges include being a college student and my Internship cutting into development time. This might cause delays on development however my current class schedule is pretty light and give little homework. My work has cut back on hours because of school. I go to class TUES and THURS then develop all afternoon long. On MON and WED I go to work then develop all night. Weekends are a 1/4 homework and the 3/4 game development.
