Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

AAAAAAAAH

Seriously, look at that motherfucking game! If you're not about to throw up from the awesome, you're probably about to throw up because of all the spinning!

You're like, a ball on a thing, and you go fast and spin around!

It has colors! It has speed! It has style! It has a name that sounds like it's short for "pronoun!"

I saw a trailer for this a while ago and I've been sort of mesmerized ever since. I want Proun.

The guy says it should be done by Christmas. I hope so, because if not, it won't be. So that would be bad. Here's the first trailer, and now that I've watched it again it's suspiciously similar to the second trailer...

Woooo

Download the old beta here! I haven't played it so I dunno if it's any good.

Yeah that's pretty much the whole OP. I hope this comes to Steam. Here is the Proun website if you want more info.

    New trailer out. This game comes out June 24th.

    Other interesting news: this game costs whatever you want it to cost, although if you pay money you get an extra level.

    This looks ultimately rad. I sort of wish It had a 3d glasses mode because that would be the ultimate trippin' balls.

    Hey! This game looks like a game on steam. It was in the Potato Pack for Portal 2. 1 2 3 Kick It I think is it's name. There's not a ball on a rope, but there is that rope in some levels, and the basic "avoid shit that's coming at you" premise is there.

    ... except 1, 2, 3, Kick It! (Drop That Beat Like an Ugly Baby) is a music game that generates levels based on your songs where you try to score points by shooting targets, getting close to obstacles, and so on, whereas Proun is a racing game where you try to make the best time on pre-made levels by rotating along the center axis.

    So, yes, they both have an "avoid shit" premise, but so do all shmups, AaAaAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity, racing games, etc.

    There is no reason for this thread to be stuffed this far back! This is a legit free game if you don't want to pay for it. The developer even lets you try it for free and then pay for it later if you want. It's really good damnit! I've been grinning every time I play a new level.

    Play it right now!

    Doesn't work on my netbook :( Crashes out at the 2/3 mark when loading a stage. But no matter, I look forward to playing this on a nice big screen when I get home in a few days. I love me some twitch racing! (I play an awful lot of grind and tech death metal on Audiosurf)

    i think i'll try this out

    EDIT: beat the first 2 difficulties, dunno if my mind can keep up with the speed of the third.

    also, i think i have vertigo now.


    i can see this being really cool if the community adds some really long tracks with custom music in there.

    Third level speed is significantly faster than the previous two, sometimes to the point of where you have to change your previous way of approaching the track because you're simply going too fast to traverse in time.

    The final one is even better.

    The higher difficulty levels kind of remind me of F-Zero. It goes so fast that you have to memorize the track. I enjoyed it.

    Roger Ebert, eat your heart out.

    But seriously. This feels like An Important Game. Unfortunately, none of the reasons it's important are really in the actual gameplay.
