Ballpoint Universe is a side-scrolling shooter / platform adventure game about a doodle named Doodle. Every bit of the game has been drawn with a ballpoint pen to build immaculate environments.
Classic space shooter gameplay! Shoot and dodge through a hell-storm of enemies to obliterate the deranged doodles and the Logician scourge. Fight for the future of creativity itself! Explore doodle realms, meet intriguing, eccentric characters, get hints and items to aid your quest. Upgrades! Fully fledged 4 slot customization system; customize your ship with the gear you acquire along your journey. Equip for the needs for a certain mission; do you need a shield and sword? sword and gun? Gun and gun? Exploit the enemy fleet's weaknesses and overcome their systematic genocide of imagination!

Hey, I got this in a Indiegala, but it only comes with a Steam redemption key. Is there any chance I could also get a Desura key with it?

I just released my Let's Play of this unique indie gem - I was totally blown away by the graphic design, even though (or because) it was all made with a ballpoint pen... Feel free to check it out and definitely get the game, worth every cent: Youtube.com

50/50 chance of getting the game on Linux. If we migrate it from Unity 3.5. to 4, I believe it has an option to produce a Linux player.

Yes, one day! If there's no issues with licenses and such, we'll port out to Linux. I'll post a huge update about it if that happens.

Bloody ***k! This game is gorgeous!

It's almost a crime that games and art of this caliber have such low retail value nowadays but I guess I better not complain.

The art looks awesome, voted on Greenlight but who knows? I usually can't wait for that and get the game on Desura if a game really catches my eye :D

@GearboxSoftware Borderlands 2. As a gamer, I'm creaming my pants. As a developer, I'm humbled so hard. #slowpoke Dec 28 2014, 5:26pm

But it's kickass to have a fanbase that is honest but polite. We will put everything we learned and more into our future titles! Oct 31 2014, 7:56pm
To everyone that reviewed BPU: Thank you so much! We realize the game has many flaws, and we've learned so much from developing Oct 31 2014, 7:55pm
