Chainball! - A physics sports game!

Post by Jeeper »

Image
Chainball! is a game developed for GMTK2021. Your job is to score the ball in the goal - a concept as old as time. However, in Chainball!, the only way for you to advance the ball is to strike it with the ball-and-chain attached to your ankle. Use physics, timing, strategy, and a bit of luck to fight for your life in Chainball!

This game has modes for human versus AI, as well as human versus human. Currently working on a post jam version which will feature (among other things) 2v2 & 3v3, AI personalities, new map and more!

Wow! :awesome: Looks nice! Did you make this in 48 hours? Nice work with the theme they gave you(joined together).
Are the results out? What place did you come out? When do the results come out cause I doubt they have. :P

And I see you have AI personalities, nice. I wanted to add personalities for the bots in my shooter. Stuff like aggressive, that likes shooting a lot, and tactical, for defense and tactical shooting, but never got to it.
What are your AI personalities?
Why can't pirates code in lua? Because they spend to much time at C! :P

-It might look like nonsense :roll: but there's so much proof.
-Some more if you pls... :? .
It has to be real then, all that talk about the end :shock: .
-How to be saved :huh:

Really great effort. I enjoyed giving it a try, even though I did lose 3-0!

The AI in the jam is a bit messy, it has some general ideas of when to attack and when to defend. We are working on a post jam version where the AI will be a lot more advanced, and feature different types of personalities though!

Happy to hear you liked it! :D
It can indeed be a bit difficult until you get the hang of the physics.
