Game: BasketBelle
Official Website
Developer: Studio Bean
Platforms: Windows, Mac
DRM: Desura, DRM-Free



"BasketBelle is an experimental 2D basketball-based platformer. Each Chapter of the game uses the mechanics and idea of basketball in a different way. At one point you might be dribbling inside the intestines of a purple blob creature (what?). At others, you're likely to be dunking above the clouds in front of the Parisian moon. It gets a little weird, and I like that.

BasketBelle was originally created as an experiment in synchronizing audio with interactive visuals. This has stayed true through its development, as the main character's dribbles create the bass kicks for the music in each Chapter. There was also a desire to try something new with basketball - its mechanics perfect for a videogame; its application mostly being confined to a court. As an additional change of pace, a love story was introduced, but this time dealing with the love of family members and not so much romantic love as has been explored in previous games."

What, exactly, do you mean by that? I've only heard great things about Basketbelle (other than the fact that it's disappointingly short). It does look quite strange, but the quality is definitely there.

Well, how can i put, i'm not into sports and sports games, so mixing basketball with platformer is way too grotesque for me.

I urge you to watch the trailers. It's not really a sports game at all; it puts elements of basketball to different uses in each level, making the gameplay change constantly throughout. Looks really cool.
