The developer of IMPOSSIBALL [Steam, Official Site] is working to bring the game to Linux, so they have sent us tons of keys to throw at you so you can test it.

The developer isn't too familiar with Linux just yet, so they are bringing you all in to help polish it up.

The beta is open to anyone who already owns it, otherwise you can claim your key below!

To opt-in to the beta, simply select the "linux" beta with no password needed on Steam.

About the game
The 1970's and 80's were a golden time for video games. Impossiball pays homage to one of the original greats of that era, but with a 21st century update.

The aim is to score as many points as you can by getting balls past your opponent, whilst stopping as many as possible from getting past you. By rotating your ship you have fine control over the direction balls will bounce. The first player to reach the score limit wins. There is a variety of Power-Ups and 'game changers' like Magnet, Invisiball, Inversion, Shield and Impossiball to make your game easier, or your opponent's game harder.

Time-tested, classic game-play upgraded with 500 balls on screen and 3D graphics. You can try to beat the AI (with three difficulty levels) or challenge a friend.

Feel free to leave a review on the Steam page if you liked it, as reviews really do help developers. At the very least, do try to provide feedback to the developer.

I runs without touching anything. It's already a first step. It's a really simple game made with unity (has a big unity logo). For the first look they should improve the menus. They are really simple.

After many years of visiting this website, I finally got a key! I can't even remember how many of these giveaways I've missed.

**passes out from joy**

I got a key and tried it out for a minute or two this morning before work and works great. No problems I could see and looks fun. Thanks!

Firstly - thanks to all of you for testing the game for us and letting us know if it runs OK on Linux. We have installed a machine with Ubuntu but, since we are very new to Linux, we needed some expert help for compatibility testing...and testing in general!

jordicomaI runs without touching anything. It's already a first step. It's a really simple game made with unity (has a big unity logo). For the first look they should improve the menus. They are really simple.

Indeed, the current menu system is just place-holder until all the game modes are finalised. It will be one of the last things we tackle before moving out of Early Access and into Full Release.

Feel free to leave feedback here or on the Steam community page. Also, as Liam mentioned, we would really appreciate your reviews for the game as they are so important to help get the game noticed. We welcome all feedback and will address any and all issues.

Thanks again!

Took one as well, this was just too tempting.
I'll give it a try soon.
