Please see LiveWire Terms of Service hereBall at Work Speedrun Discord is LIVE and the competition is crazy intense!Dec 5, 2020 - Community AnnouncementsWhat started as a simple mobile game back in 2019 has now come a long way and bringing this project over to PC has allowed us to fully unleash the capability of the framework that we had developed for Ball at Work. We have been pleasantly surprised to see how even the most discerning players have welcomed the prospect of a simple yet fun game based on new experimental ideas. For us, Ball at Work has always been about creating a pick-up-and-play gaming experience that is highly accessible to all gamers but takes skill and patience to master. During the recent weeks, some players have gone ahead and done Speedruns of the game and this is when we realised that Ball at Work is actually very well suited for timed competition and this can add a whole new dimension to how players experience the game. To add some form of structured competition to the game, we recently introduced the LiveWire series where new levels are introduced into the game each month and users can compete to set the fastest time on the leaderboard. The current LiveWire event is ongoing till December 07 and we are giving away $5 Steam Gift Card (each) to the top three places on the leaderboard!! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/38742469/398785899e323b7df30021f6f196a07dd2f3c15f.png Now the big news we have for you all is that some members of the community have taken the initiative to setup a dedicated Discord Channel focusing on Ball at Work Speedruns-- things are moving along swiftly and we're already making some noise on the Speedrun circuit!

We want to start by thanking you all for the support that you've shown for Ball at Work during the past month and all your feedback has been genuinely helpful to us for making the game more engaging, developing new content and improving the overall experience of the app. As big publishers continue to splurge on extensive marketing and promotion of content, it has become increasingly hard for small indie developers like us to continue working on new and innovative content whilst running a sustainable business at the same time. With the high level of engagement that Ball at Work is now seeing, it is imperative that we look for fair and ethical means for monetisation through this product without alienating our existing users and also ensure that we offer better and more varied content when we ask users to pay us their money. After a lot of development work and planning, we are pleased to announce an upcoming DLC to Ball at Work- THE BOSS EDITION! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/38742469/1be2949793cdd56273d3fb29a6392e87aac4bfeb.png We plan to still keep around 18 levels available to play for free in the base app while the rest will be moved to the DLC and we will also be adding future levels directly to the DLC. Further, all limited-time specials such as the recent Halloween Pack will be made available only to players on the Boss Edition and we will also be introducing fresh in-game graphics that will be exclusive to the DLC. This will be a one-time purchase that will provide lifetime access to all the new improvements and changes that we make to Ball at Work! Here's a summary of the features that we are lining up for the Boss Edition: Complete unrestricted access from level 18 onwards New graphics and backgrounds Exclusive access to limited-time events and specials! We are planning a very reasonable price for the DLC and it's our sincere hope that you will consider supporting our work by picking up a copy! Boo!!

It's not even been a week since we treated y'all with a big update and we're back again with more? It's just how we do things at Famous Dogg-- we are constantly listening to every single one of our users and are once again ready to introduce more content and improvements to Ball at Work! In version 1.6, we have revised the forces and other physics that act on the ball with a lot of testing and experimentation to give players the "snappier" and more responsive feel that they have craved in this game from the day we released it! With dynamic adjustments being made to the ball's mass during gameplay, it will feel lighter when you need to make those quick changes in direction but never too light and airy that it gets twitchy and hard to handle in small spaces... basically, the physics are BANG ON! We have also improved the video guides and re-encoded the animations for every single level in double the resolution from last time. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/38742469/410ec92436652f4807e7f98697a5d73583b809b2.png {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/38742469/86d74d29ff7b24802a7fbceb296580fa4443bffb.png And, like every other update, we are stoked to announce the introduction of two brand new levels to this version!

Now featuring VIDEO GUIDES for all levels and TWO NEW LEVELS!Oct 9, 2020 - Community AnnouncementsWe are overwhelmed by the great response that we've received from all the players and are exvited to report that within less than 14 days from its Early Access release, around 10,000 new users have discovered and become addicted to the craziness of the this super-fun game! To deliver the most exhilarating and optimised gameplay experience to you guys, we at Famous Dogg, have been hard at work on Ball at Work :p The latest update of v1.5 is the BIGGEST UPDATE so far to the game and is set to completely change the way hints are presented to a user if they find themselves struggling with any particular level. We have dropped the path-guide system in favour of a far more helpful system through the introduction of the all new VIDEO GUIDES! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/38742469/5c71a733858ba2134aa27a2a736c8f7d1375c823.png Simply click on the video guide button on the top-left corner of the screen during any level, spend some Bonus Slips to unlock the video guide and you will be presented with a complete animated sequence that will show you exactly what your strategy needs to be to uncover the path to goal! We have also made various other improvements to the game's physics such as adding more balance to the water-stream in some levels, further improving the behaviour of the printer and fixes for other minor annoyances that some users had reported. That's not all- the latest update also introduces two new levels so prepare to leap farther, break more stuff and unleash complete chaos in the charmingly dysfunctional workplace! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/38742469/eae446641b37df3415508a6ad6deb0d68f385f5e.png {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/38742469/4ee8883c2c87da2301ee8857367b1f39984155e3.png Summary of all the new features of v1.5: Dedicated video guides can now be unlocked for every single level in the game!

It's only been around 48 hours since the last update so this might be the quickest feature update that we've ever published xD The ability to customise a game's physics is something that can have a very strong impact on user-experience-- our philosophy has always been to test our products rigorously and extensively to create a perfectly balanced game without constantly nagging and bothering the players with too many options. However, offering the right and necessary set of options and customisation features is equally important so that players with different devices, playing styles and experience can all have the best possible gameplay experience. In this latest version (v1.4) of Ball at Work, we have added the option to modify the rate at which the ball slows down when the player is not moving it left or right.

Pick a slower speed for more precision or go with a faster option for a more fluid experience! First introduction of levels 27 and 28! Minor improvements and fixes to many other levels based on your feedback from the previous version. We intend to regularly add more levels to the game and make plenty of enhancements to the overall experience during the Early Access stage so keep sharing your thoughts and suggestions with us on the Community Hub and watch this space for future updates!UPDATE: Improved handling, more hints & guidance & an overall better experience!Oct 1, 2020 - Community AnnouncementsFirst, we'd like to thank everyone for playing Ball at Work and helping us test this new project. Like every new concept or idea, this too has its rough edges and those who've interacted with us in the past or tried our other games will know that there is nothing more important to us than delivering a unique and high-quality experience for the players. Ball at Work is still being developed and we assure you that issues such as the controls being too fast or too sluggish will be resolved quite soon. We are happy that most users have been patient with this game and seen past the small shortcomings to realise that it is indeed a game unlike any other! In this update, we have made numerous improvements and tweaks which are summarised here: Added a brighter red glow to objects that will fall so that users don't have to guess any more. We've also added a new tutorial to explain this feature. Added an option to disable tutorials. This feature is toggled by the on-screen "?" button. The damping of the ball has been increased which will hopefully make it easier to make smaller, more precise movements. Users had struggled with the levels that have the printer which shoots sheets of paper and another level where you are required to leverage a jumping book to gain some height. These are levels 8 and 14 respectively and we have completely revamped them. We have dramatically reduced the number of Bonus Slips that are needed to unlock the path for any level or skip a level. Forcing microtransactions is never our agenda and we believe that there should be enough virtual currency available to users without having to grind through the same levels multiple times. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/38742469/2d3e07a1938024fd8a0d4f14222dea91e7d3739b.png {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/38742469/812164c9acf2b516117dd243ba43f1f45b5892a9.png
