Shadow Of The Wool Ball (2016)
The game contains 18 levels, split up into three episodes.
Experience oldschool and horribly outdated 3D FPS-action with mean enemies!
Retro-looking and always-changing environments! Dark bunkers and/or spaceships? SOTWB got it!
Really cool explosions! Weee!
I started drawing enemy sprites and wall textures to test out some ideas I had for a retro game, without even knowing what the story was supposed to be about. I just put together a lot of things that I thought were kind of fun and connected it all with a dumb little story.
Some of the music tracks were actually older selfmade midi songs that I more or less recycled, while quite a few tracks were also specially written for the game.
The game was left unfinished for three years… phew, good thing I remembered it decaying somewhere on my hard drive in 2016! So I randomly decided to finish it all with most of the stuff I already made and cut out the things I planned, but felt unnecessary. Fueled by lots of coffee and punk, I completed it and threw it out to the internet people. Never thought the reception would have been SO postive.
