Ballpoint Universe: Infinite


  • HAI, GUYS. Guess what we won...
  • Visuality Award

"Visuality Award"

"The debate on if games are art seems like a silly question when you look at an indie title such as Ballpoint Universe. Every bit of the game has been drawn with a ballpoint pen to build immaculate environments. Ballpoint Universe is a side-scrolling shooter / platform adventure game about a doodle named Doodle. Explore doodle realms, meet intriguing, eccentric characters, get hints and items to aid your quest. Fight for the future of creativity itself in one of the most beautiful indie titles this year."

"...can we all come together and appreciate just how completely incredible¬†Ballpoint Universe‘s entirely ballpoint-drawn universe looks? I mean, goodness. The exploration platformer/shmup (yes, that is a thing) looks brilliant in motion too..."
