@deadeye - Cool game. What's it about?
It's a platformer for iPad and iPhone, and hopefully Android in the future. You play as a lost crystal ball* trying to find its way home back to a wizard's castle. It controls with just one finger. You pull back to aim and release to jump. You can tap on either side of the ball to boost (or brake) in the opposite direction, or hold on either side to roll it. It's got a a few puzzle elements and a bit of physics stuff but mostly it's just skill based in aiming and timing your jumps right. It's also got some power-ups that make you jump higher, fly, stick to surfaces, etc.

The gold star thing inside the ball is just there to show it rolling/moving in a certain direction... we found it's kind of hard to show a clear glass ball doing that otherwise.
I might post some gameplay footage soon but my partners don't want to post the actual trailer yet because there's still some question about the game's name. They're in the middle of trying to trademark it (which I personally find kind of weird for an indie game... or is that common? I dunno, I'm just the artist.)
Anyway, good luck on you seven day shooter
. That's one ambitious challenge. But it's looking good so far, keep up the good work
