Go Go Redball, Ultra-casual ball bouncing sim

You toss a red rubber ball around the screen. It bounces with a satisfying bop. Simple and beautiful.

Landing Tomorrow, November 29

The new trailer:

It's a really simple game: there are a few rooms to bounce the ball in, each offers a unique mini-game and a different colored ball. In some the ball bounces with a different sound, as it would in reality (sounds were hand recorded using dozens of different rubber balls on several different surfaces).

That simplicity is the heart of Go Go Redball. Bouncing a ball is soothing and relaxing, allowing the mind to wander. As it does, creativity takes over. It's a great way to relive stress or solve nagging problems.

This game is easy to pick up but not difficult to master; in fact, you probably mastered it years ago, in your youth, when life itself was simpler.

You can see what the game looks like the first time it's launched, a few bits of the first mini-game (cut out so the solution isn't spoiled).

Go Go Redball for iPad is a port of my Dashboard widget for OS X. It was fairly popular for a while; that version has been downloaded over a million times, and appeared in a few Apple-centric places such as blogs, and even on stage during a WWDC keynote. It's rated 4.6 stars on dashboardwidgets.com.

Development is nearing completion and I expect the first release by the end of the year. I don't know if this game is too casual for the Touch Arcade crowd, but I'm interested in all feedback.
