    We have released The Ball Part 2: Oztoc!

    The Ball is the winner of the MakeSomethingUnreal contest Phase 1, having won both Best Gametype and Best Use of Physics.

    The Ball is a first person singleplayer puzzle mod with an Aztec theme to it. The mod takes place in a mysterious Aztec temple, at the top of a volcano. The player has to use the Impact Gun to move a large steel ball around and utilize that ball to solve puzzles and get around obstacles. Impact Gun aside, the mod uses all new custom art to establish a unique, stylish, and atmospheric experience.


    Oztoc is many times larger than Pehua, the first release, and features many improvements and additions:

    # Meet the ruler and guardian of the temple. This king will observe the player as he progresses through the level.
    # Enjoy a brand new ball with improved behavior and a simple but efficient hud.
    # Puzzle your way through two new levels, together about four to five times the size of the Pehua level.
    # Experience a whole number of new gameplay mechanics such as water, arrows, exploding balls, movable walls, and so on.
    # An improved Pehua level, including one new puzzle and a little intro scene that introduces the simple background story.
    # Dozens of bug fixes and small improvements.

    Nop was suppose to be fixed. Though if you are smart enough to figure that approach out, then it is just as good as finding the real solution imo. It doesnt harm the puzzle nature of the mod.

    Well done guys. I'm a big fan of the change to the secondary fire (where the ball stops when it gets to you). Makes some things a lot easier. Really enjoyed that.
