Pimp My Ball is an online multiplayer board game simulator or something. We did the game together with our classmate Alexandra in a networking course at LTU. If you want to download the game, go ahead and visit the project website.

Gameplay

In Pimp My Ball you play as a ball, rolling around in a pretty little 3D landscape together with all your little ball friends. When you collide with another player a Gomoku game (Five in a row) is started, and you win or lose points depending on whether you win or lose the game.

Development

Pimp My Ball was created using jMonkeyEngine, which is a really neat game engine for throwing together a 3D game quickly. We haven't done any of the graphics ourselves, we just borrowed existing models and textures. Also, the song playing in the background is Shuffle or boogie from Final Fantasy VIII.
