Super cool PR text

Sanicball is a stupid, silly game that throws away complex gameplay mechanics, character progression and microtransactions in favor of pure fast. It features the all the latest dumb internet memes thrown together in a blender to form a truly europhoic circlejerking experience. This wasn't the original intention but it ended up happening anyway.

Download the game from Game Jolt

If you want to host a server, grab 'Sanicball Server' just below the main download and set it up!

Github page

From here you can access the full source code of the game. To download, press the small green button that says "Clone or Download", then press "Download ZIP". Instructions on how to open the project are on the page.

Version archive

Play all the older, even crappier versions of Sanicball, all the way back to the first release originally only shown to my friends. This also works as a mirror for the game in case Game Jolt is down.

Development blog

A tumblr blog I used for banter and update logs.

Subreddit (/r/sanicball)

Acts sort of as a forum for the game. Anything goes, as long as it's related to the game in some way.

Note from the developer

Hello, I am the developer. (Some people think this was made by a team! Imagine that)

The game will not be updated further - you can safely consider v0.8.2 the 'final' release.

Sanicball has been a true adventure to work on. I never expected it to reach any kind of success at all, and when success somehow came, I had no idea how to handle it. So I did what I knew how to do, and added more stupid memes.

This was a mistake.

Nah just kidding, of course it was worth it. I made some nice pocket money and had the transcendental experience of PewDiePie playing something I had made.

After the game's 'big break', I stopped working on it for a long while, and came back wanting to push the game in a slightly more serious direction. This too was really fun, those newer updates were much less popular but I'm more proud of them. Unfortunately I never finished the stage revamps, which leaves the game with one very nice looking stage and three less nice looking stages. You'll have to live with this I'm afraid.

While my time with the game is gone and done, the source code is still out there. If you want to tweak the game or perhaps something more, you are free to do so.

Big thanks to everyone who played Sanicball though the years, I hope you enjoyed it. Also even bigger thanks to YOU for still being interested enough to visit this page.
