Big update! FINALLY.
(formerly College Ruled Universe)
Ballpoint Universe is a Sidescrolling shooter/ Platform adventure game about a doodle named Doodle. Every asset of the game has been drawn with a ballpoint pen and scanned in to build immaculate environments.

"I’m not in any way, shape, form, or doodle of a mechanical steampunk owl creature writing this one off. It’s positively packed with promise, so I’m eagerly awaiting its May 2013 drop date. Which is very soon! Hurrah!"
-Rock Paper Shotgun

"Ballpoint pens: bad for math class, good for having a gorgeous visual aesthetic in a game."

Classic space shooter gameplay! Shoot and dodge through a hell-storm of enemies to obliterate the logic fleets and their Admirals. Fight for the future of creativity itself!

Planet Exploration! 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.
Customize these parts on your ship:
  • Wings - Boost your health! Attract Ink! Fire Missiles! Your wings give you passive effects to fit your playstyle!
  • Nose - The nose of the ship houses a special attack. Charge up your combo gauge to use it!
  • Top equip - Choose from a vast array of guns, shields, swords, or spears!
  • Bottom equip - Now do it again! Pair your equips wisely to survive in battle

Infinite mode! Battle endless waves of enemies and get as far as your skill and wits allow!
Friends! Allied sketches join you as you collect more parts!
Gamble! Throw all your ink away at a shady dealer!
Achievements! Complete it all to deck out your mission hub!
Trophies! Do good on your missions and collect! There's over 50 spot-illustration style ballpoint trophies to collect.

"Every inkling of creativity goes somewhere, every thought, hum, sketch, scribble, dance, spoken word is both pulled out of, and fed back into a creativerse so vast it has no real logical meaning. In the realms of notebook paper, creativity is hunted down like an infection. The ordered societies of logic: Geometry, Algebra, Grammar, Physics, and Anatomy wage war on the creative spurts that have settled on their pages, and they are winning. But every idea starts small, and even the smallest spark can start a raging inferno."
