Help MushroomBall get Greenlit on steam:
Big thanks to Virtuix for backing the Mushroom God perk!
MushroomBall is a third-person VR platformer for the Oculus Rift with first person support for the Virtuix Omni treadmill. Omni's bowl-shaped design adds an entirely new level of immersion to the game as you run in your mushroomball throughout the worlds!
In MushroomBallVR, you are the leader of the Mervil Kingdom within Mushroom Land. You and your companions love mushrooms and need them to survive. But, your enemies have been raiding the lands and eating your precious food. It’s your job to travel in your mushroomball to all corners of the Mushroom Land Universe, scare off your enemies, and take back what is yours!
MushroomBallVR's 3 game modes:
1. Single Player - Timer Mode: Race against the clock, the better time you score the more Mushroom Stars you get for your people! In the leaderboards, see how you stack-up against other mushroomballers too.
2. Single Player - Exploration Mode: Your ancestors created a magical force field that protects your kingdom. The once mighty force field has worn off and the magical pages of The Great Mirvel Book that once bound this spell, are scattered throughout the worlds. Go back and scour the worlds to find the pages and lost artifacts!
The story of your people:
3. Online - Multiplayer Mode: Join your friends and other mushroomballers in the same world to compete for mushroom supremacy in mini games! Race against friends and see if you're mushroomballing skills matchup on the world stage. Continuous mini games in the pipeline.
Multiplayer Mini Game Event - Being held Mid-November for backers
In future levels, within both single player modes, MushroomBall will become progressively more puzzle based with keys, portals, platforms, springboards, pressure plates, and hidden areas along the way.
In addition, the game will become more challenging with bigger and more ferocious enemies, fireball turrets and more mushrooms with magical effects. (i.e Levitator Mushroom)
The game includes 4 power-ups to help you progress through time mode quicker and help you get to all corners of the exploration mode. Using the D-Pad you can:
- Freeze Time and Space including all enemies
- Become invincible so that nothing can stop you!
- Fly into the sky on demand
- Place mark your spot using a magical portal and teleport back at anytime (helping you get to the highest points of the exploration mode without dying along the way!)
Using the coins you gather along the way you can buy more power-ups from Merlyn the potion master!
Merlyn is an old wizard who has the power to give you the answers and potions needed to defeat your enemies, and discover the World. We know Merlyn is there to help you out, we just do not know why. As you grow as a leader and solve the mystery of Merlyn, he will be able to grant you more powers. As much as Merlyn is there to help you defeat enemies and travel through Worlds, we’d like to think his biggest asset is helping you discover yourself.
Of course, you are the most interesting character in the Mushroom World. From the beginning we know that you are the Leader of the Mervil Kingdom and a Mervil yourself. What we don’t understand is why you were chosen to lead the Kingdom of Mervil’s. Everything a Mervil is (laid back and unadventurous), you are not. As you progress through the different Worlds you will learn more and more about your character, and why you are so different. For now, all we know is that you are the baddest King or Queen around and that you travel in a ball… Oh, and you're pals with Merlyn.
In order to complete each world you must earn enough mushroom stars on the levels to feed your people (in Time Based Mode) OR collect enough pages and artifacts (in Exploration mode) to rebind the The Great Mervil Book and re-harness your kingdoms protective force field.
Future worlds include an ice and desert land with native enemies, puzzles, and specific challenges accustom to those new lands!

VitruviusVR is a Canadian Game Studio co-founded by:
Blake and Colton founded VitruviusVR 2 years ago and have been in the VR space ever since. In addition to creating PC and Mobile games, they've been involved in 360-video, creating VR experiences for big brand campaigns such The Ripley's Aquarium-Shark Week and Niagara Falls-Journey Behind the Falls Experience using their 10 camera capture system. The team lives for VR and believes it will eventually change the world as we know it!
We've worked long days to get Mushroomball to where it is today but we're still a small team. Every dollar we raise on Kickstarter is being put into building better features within levels, incorporating better music, and adding more character customization. It's up to you to help us make Mushroomball an even more fun and full-featured VR game!

Risks and challenges
MushroomBallVR is currently in development. We have a strong vision on the game and story, but we love taking feedback from the community to dictate the final version of the game. Due to this, the fully completed version of MushroomBallVR might have a few different gameplay options and might include features that weren't stated in the above description.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
