StressBall for Unity

Life’s problems are best solved when you aren’t worrying about them and waiting for a lightmap or occulsion area to bake can be pretty darn boring. Battle the difficult moments in your day with StressBall when you need a breath of fresh fun while still looking completely productive.

StressBall is a simple and fun toy that integrates directly into the Unity editor and has been optimized to ensure it will never interfere with your project’s frame rate. Just install the package, save your project and launch it from Window > Pixelplacement > StressBall menu in Unity.

    I guess I have done something wrong. I downloaded and it imported but there is no instance of the game on the menu under windows or anywhere else on that menu area. It is however in my project window but I can not get it to run from there no matter what I try???

    Break it to me gently I know I fed up just hit me with the bad news///

      Under ‘Window’ on the top menu there should be an option for ‘Pixelplacement’ and then ‘StressBall’ should be under that. Try quitting and relaunching Unity if you still don’t see it. What version of Unity are you running?
