The inspiration for Freestyle Ball Ball 2013 was based on a video (this one http://youtu.be/lUDIQWYaxbc
) I saw years ago, involving grabbing large exercise balls and then running at people.
I'm making it physics based where you try to bounce your body in the air to hit targets to score.Update
I have a playable, but not quite fun, version now. I'm collaborating with a friend and need to get in an actual modeled character (with better weighting) and environment, as well as sounds. I'm also looking to make the arena more fun and tweak the physics and things players can do (like air rotation).
Some screens:Update 11/17
It is playable now at: http://scottwashi.com/jams/fbb2013/WebPlayer.html

W/Up - Forward
S/Down - Backward

D/Right - Turn Right
Shift - Sprint
Space - Jump
R - Stand Up
G - Drop Ball
Mouse - CameraUpdate 11/30
Finished. Well I'd like to add some music to it that my partner is finishing up, but we'll see if we can get it in before the deadline. There are also a few minor tweaks I want to add to make the arena a bit more fun.
