IMPORTANT NOTICE - The current video and images are only the alpha version of the graphics, we wanted to focus on presenting the gameplay and mechanics of the game. The graphics will be greatly improved!

Pixel Ball is a competitive, 2D, multiplayer, dodgeball game where you play 1 on 1 matches with the objective to hit your opponent 5 times with any ball. Dodge, catch and throw dodgeballs in your attempt to outsmart and outplay your opponent. You can choose to challenge your friends, play against random people online or even try your hand and at the "Grandmaster" AI.

Target OS: Windows, Mac, Linux.

  • Easy Controls: Pixel Ball features easy to understand controls with and simple mechanics. Anyone can jump in and play!
  • Intense battles: Pixel Ball will keep you on your toes with high speed dodgeballs, awesome screen shacking explosions, blood rushing head shots and much more!
  • Customization: Choose from tons of skins and effect to represent your character as well as a plethora of dodgeballs that can affect the outcome of a match!
  • Aim to be the best: Battle people all over to the world to increase your rank to become one of the top players!

Pixel Ball includes a bunch of mechanics to give the game-play more depth and keep the game fun to play.

Double Jump: Press the jump key while in their air will allow you to double jump. This gives plays more control in the air and one of the most basic mechanics that sets up for cool last second air dodges as well as tying in with other mechanics.

Fire Balls: If you catch a live ball out the air it will turn into a Fire Ball. A Fire Ball is thrown with increased speed and cannot be caught! Certain dodgeballs also have certain effects while on fire. 

Head Shots: Head shot happen when a player is hit in the head with a dodge ball. Although head shots don't seem like anything special(except for the "rekt" graphic), they can actually break through basic shields. No one is safe from a Head Shoot.

Leg Shots: Unlike a Head Shot, the Leg Shot doesn't have a cool graphic, but they also cannot be caught. So watch out for those low blows!

Ball Spin: By holding the jump key while throwing the ball will inherit the players vertical speed. This mean while falling down you till spike the ball and while jumping up you will throw the ball upwards. This is a hard mechanic to get used to but is the difference been a good Pixel Ball player and a great Pixel Ball player. 

Ball Mechanics: Some of the dodgeballs in Pixel Ball have special effects that are granted to the player current holding the ball. Some include speed and jump bonuses, explosions, ninja like invisibility, protective shields and much more! 

After playing matches in Pixel Ball you will be rewarded with Credits based on how the game went. These Credits can be used in the store to buy and equip new skins, dodgeballs and effects. Skins and effects are solely for cosmetic purposes and don't effect game play at all. However, some dodgeballs include special abilities that can benefit or hinder the person currently wielding the ball!     

Pixel Ball also include two single player modes: Grandmaster Mode and Target Practice. 

Grandmaster Mode is a place where you can challenge super hard AI in order to unlock there skins and win some extra credits. Although you may fight them as many time as you want, you can only unlock one skin from each grandmaster. Each grandmaster has their own set up bonuses to give them the edge in a match. This is a true test of your Pixel Ball skills!

Target Practice is a mode where you are given 30 seconds to hit the moving target as many times as possible. This is a great mode to master the ball spin mechanic! This mode also includes a Global Leader-board.

-Created by Brian Bowman.

Pixel Ball started as a small project made as a token to our love for dodgeball. While in school had the opportunity to show it off at PAX East. To our surprise we got a great reaction from the people who played our game. People would come just to watch others play and people even caught on to the term "Get Rekt". Since then we wanted to make this the best game we could, it was decided to looked towards kickstarter. We are hopping to gain enough support to help set up a server and out source some work! 

Pixel Ball is close to being finished and only needs that last push to get it to a releasable state. We want to be able to have a large enough server to handle the players information, outsource some of the art work so we can aim for more of a "fighting game" look with things like our backgrounds and some menu screens. 

This is how were are going to split up the money received from Kickstarter(after taxes, reward costs) :

Risks and challenges

Pixel Ball is a project that we are very determined to complete. Not only do we enjoy creating this game but it also represents our love for a sport that we also greatly enjoy. But, as everyone knows creating a game can be a very time consuming process. Fortunately, we have spend the past year learning and exploring the different direction we can go with this game. We feel comfortable enough that no matter what challenges we face we will complete Pixel Ball. With proper funding and support, we are sure that Pixel Ball will be the best dodgeball game you will ever play!
