Gimbal in Indie Gala Bundle
Release date: Standalone version available NOW
Gimbal is the multiplayer shooter with buildable vehicles. Players conduct team-based combat against one another, while gaining money and building bigger, better ships using over 60 different parts. Gimbal has a rigid body physics engine with aerodynamics, so all subcomponents affect speed and handling. Ships can be shared as PNG images because the ship data is stored in the PNG.

Servers are up and players are playing Gimbal NOW.

I am a recluse. I don't interact. I don't speak. I decided to come here and say, "Buy Gimbal. The potential is astounding." Nuff said.
