I wrote some words about what’s up next for Road to Ballhalla in 2017 on Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/games/425410/announcements/detail/684943205299105620

TL;DR: Big new update in a few months, containing 4 new campaign trials, a major balance pass, updated ingame texts and some new features.

Also, the game is currently 50% off on Steam! Get it now from: http://store.steampowered.com/app/425410

After almost three years of work, the game is now available on Steam for Windows: http://store.steampowered.com/app/425410

Feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive. We also ran a “Twitch Plays” on tinyBuild’s Twitch channel, where hundreds of players worked together to reach Ballhalla using text commands in the Twitch chat – it took them about 3 days to do beat it.

I’m currently finishing up the Steam Workshop integration + level editor, which will be ready for beta testing in a few days.

Have fun!

Beta test started

Warball Chase

Today we’ve started a beta test for the game’s full campaign. Several hundred testers have been invited to play through it from start to finish and (hopefully) give feedback.

I’ve implemented a statistics system that should help me with fine-tuning the bal(l)ance. For each level, I’ll get stats about completion time, respawns taken, orbs collected and more, so I can check out which levels are too easy or (more probable) too hard and update them afterwards.

If you didn’t get invited but want to help with the test, let me know and I’ll send you a key!

Publisher, new name, new trailer, new demo

Awesome news: I can finally announce that tinyBuild are going to publish my roll playing game. In their “Four-nification week“, they just revealed Road to Ballhalla as their second new game for this year.

Yes, that’s the new name for Roll Playing Game. We recently decided to change it because of some SEO issues (try to google it and see what happens). Also, it not being an actual role playing game was confusing to some people. “Road to Ballhalla” is a more straight-forward and fitting name – the main objective in the game is to get access to Ballhalla after all.

Road to Ballhalla was revealed with a new trailer – watch it here:

And that is not all: I’m currently finishing up a new demo build that will be playable at PAX South at tinyBuild’s booth. So, if you’re there, make sure to drop by!
