  2. Well since I started this topic a LOT has changed in my life. I went on and off of both my low-carb diet and the Gym. I nowadays have a day-to-day low carb diet but do allow myself treats on weekends, social ocasions and such. The secret for me has been staying disciplined on my day-to-day so I can go crazy on special occasions. Now that also means that SOME "special occasions" have been downgraded to "not-so-special". I go out a lot with my co-workers and if I kept drinking beer and burgers every time we hang out there would be no way to keep in shape. The secret for me has been accepting tha
  3. Yeah me too. To me however that heavy/busy oldschool user interface really detracts from the space experience. I wish they do something more like Homeworld with more screenspace for pretty graphics.

  8. Thanks guys! The game as it is right now will be released for mobile, yeah, however we are very close into finishing a PC version and you may even see it on consoles as a digital download! That's exciting news for us since it'll be the first to me we self publish something as well as the first time we release something on those platforms! I'll pass your compliments along to the team. We did post a making off of the background art a while back, you can find it here: http://horizonchase.tumblr.com/post/116490627661/palm-island-background-making-of

  10. Yeah... I've been asking the guys to look into the collision problems for ages but they keep avoiding me. I even tried to bribe the programmers with food to no avail... As for the gun recoil, we are working on the gunplay/feel and should have an update by the end of the week that greatly improves it.
  11. Oh, and you can now play it on Kongregate! No need to use your facebook account! http://www.kongregate.com/games/RumbleGames/ballistic Note that we don't have universal accounts yet, so you will have a new alias and separate account on Kong, even if you log in using your FB account.
  12. Here is a nice user made video review that highlights some of the best aspects of the game:

    Most of the environment textures for Ballistic are made using Substance, and we use a mix of techniques to save on download size for props, weapons and characters. More details here, after 35:30 (bear in mind the quality of our textures has improved by leaps and bounds since then) See it live for yourself here: https://apps.facebook.com/ballistic-game/ (USA/Brazil only for now)
