Our Games

IMPOSSIBALL is a re-imagining of Atari’s "Pong" with three different game modes that can be played in singles (2 player) or doubles (4 player) mode. The game modes are: IMPOSSIBALL, DODGEBALL and LONEBALL.

IMPOSSIBALL is like Pong but with 500 balls instead of one. There are 10 different Power-Ups including: BIGGER, INVISIBALL, MAGNET and IMPOSSIBALL.
DODGEBALL requires you to avoid getting hit by the orange balls as they get bigger and faster.
LONEBALL is our love-letter to Atari's original game featuring one, lone ball drenched in a neon glow and all set to a chip-tune soundtrack!

Impossiball was first created for the XBox Live Indie Game Marketplace where it was well received (read a review on the XBLIG). After submitting the game to Steam Greenlight, Impossiball was Greenlit in May 2015. We decided to completely rebuild the game in Unity, switching from 2D to 3D.

On September 28, 2016 Impossiball was released via Steam Early Access. Almost one year later it moved out of Early Access and into Full Release. You can buy IMPOSSIBALL now on Steam for Windows, MacOS and Linux.

Here's the trailer for the game:
