Amoeball is a game I made in my spare time over two years. It began as a simple learning experiment. I was teaching one of our artists, Steve, how to use physics in the development platform we use, Virtools. Within 45 minutes a simple volleyball game was completed, but we played the game itself for a good two hours after that. It was one of those rare times where you spend much more time playing a game than you did actually making it.

From there we decided to slap some art treatment on the game. I added a simple AI and refined the menu a little. The end result is what you see here. It seems simplistic–and really, it is–but give the game 30 minutes of your time playing against a friend. You might be surprised how deep some of the strategies run.
