Update 7.1 Released! Pass requests & tons of fixes




Update 7.1 has just been released!

Features:

  • Can request a pass (Default key is R). Shows 'Pass' over your head to friendly teammates, and bots will attempt to pass to you if they have a ball and are close to you. This lasts for 5 seconds or until you collect a ball. Super ball / Power Cube carrying bots will pass to you if you are closer to the hoop / capture point than them.
  • Mode & Description is now more prominently displayed and displayed on each new round start, allowing players to review mode & team before confirming they are ready
  • Added new Gif Replay capture setting “insane” - 60 fps and 8 seconds long
  • Added visible timer before next round or match starts
  • Activating scoreboard pauses in Solo PvE modes
  • Time limit is more prominently displayed on scoreboard

Fixes:
  • Up to 14 players can now cleanly spawn in each spawn area without bumping into each other and causing physics glitches
  • Fixed menu errors if match reset while menu was open
  • Recentered arcade unlock notification text
  • More descriptive team titles on team Select panel for Lasers vs Jetpacks, Hunters vs Hunted, and Hoop Defense.
  • Fixed main game camera just showing robot face if you changed video settings while a bot profile pic existed in scene
  • Fixed some invisible triggers from blocking mouse click collect (esp on Arena)
  • Dodgeballs reset to neutral on round end, preventing homing / boomerang balls from constantly bumping you after match end
  • Fixed bots prioritizing score leader in FFA matches instead of much closer scoring targets
  • Increased mouse scroll wheel sensitivity on all scroll views, especially on video settings
  • Top-left leaderboard is now hidden during challenges & arcade while in-progress. Is visible when TAB scoreboard is displayed.
  • Fixed challenge leaderboard not initializing properly
  • Fixed weird camera jump when starting new match and respawning
  • More consistent behavior of Tab scoreboard panel & overlaps with less
  • Stopped disco lights from updating while game is paused
  • Scoreboard highlight of super ball owning player happens immediately on pickup / throw, not just when score changes
  • If player had active notification like “Run!” and then switches to spectator, that notification is cleared immediately
  • Stopped 1st person spectator mode from showing HUD if the follow user wasn't alive
  • Fixed overlap of rules / modifiers with team select panel
  • Made scoreboard more opaque and readable
  • Fixed weird alpha values on bot explosion
  • Removed default homing ability from Jetpack team in lasers v jetpack
  • Only plays boost sound effect for local humans
  • Fixed failure to remove throw inaccuracy when easier bots are passing to friendly targets

In the next update I hope to add a bunch of new cosmetic items from the Steam Workshop. So make sure you pay a visit, vote on your favorite items and submit things you've built!

Local Multiplayer update released!

I just released version 7.0 of Disco Dodgeball, which includes one of the most-requested features: split-screen local multiplayer! Yep, you can now play multiplayer dodgeball with your friends on the same computer.

Hit "Local Multiplayer" on the main menu, activate your gamepads (up to 4 players), pick your bot appearance, choose any of the classic, expert, co-op challenge or custom matches and go!





A wide variety of gamepads are supported. And once you're in a match, you can further customize your bot to your liking by picking out from your existing Steam inventory of cosmetics.

Other changes:

  • New 'Bot Photobooth' feature shows your real bot and all your cosmetics in the round-end stats panel (not just a bot icon)
  • Access garage and customize your cosmetics within a match
  • Bloodlust KOs in custom modes now gain 0 exp to prevent easy XP gain exploit
  • Fixed decal clipping on Alkaline body
  • Blanking out Profile Name makes it revert to Steam Profile Name, which updates dynamically
  • Added bot self destruct when they get out of room bounds
  • Added behavior zones within arenas to make bots slow down & boost to improve their ability to navigate jumps & gaps
  • Greatly improved menu controller navigation
  • Can easily switch between gamepad & keyboard controls. Just hit the appropriate menu toggle button on the device to activate it.
  • Mouse input is now excluded from gamepad look controls, although it can be optionally enabled which is necessary for those using Steam Controllers with High Precision Input template.
  • Added rumble sensitivity slider
  • ‘Most Kills’ stat now reflects most round kills if in a multi-round match. Most match kills are shown when match is over.

Enjoy!

Erik

p.s. The game is 50% off this week to celebrate the update!

This game is fantasmic. your arena will flash according to your music playing (you can add your own music) and its dodgeball mixed in with other sports like basketball to if you want. There are lots of game modes! Don't have friends? No worries! It has bots!
Then on top of all the gamemodes, maps, and flashy musical lights of awesome, theres mutators to change aspects of the gameplay. You can play flaming laser dodge planets in low gravity to an amazing techno beat and maybe imagine daftpunk as your DJ up in some room that you wont see because your too busy trying not to be steamrolled by gigantic flaming laser dodgeballs.

If theres anything I wish this game had, its support for spotify. I don't have a lot of music on my pc.

I bought a 4 pack during a sale and I feel i got more than my monies worth in fun. I won't say his is the best game I've ever played or anything, but with friends this was pretty hilarious. I would imagine without friends this wouldn't be that good.

Great game! Hours of fun especially with 4-8 players. There are some big issues with the balancing of certain powerups. 8.5/10

This is a well implemented, simple FPS that is great to jump on for a quick 20 minutes now and then. If it was a full priced game I would say its too simple, but at £5 its a bargain (and if its on sale I'd suggest you grab it straight away).

Its just a simple arena based FPS (remind me of the old Quake 1 or Quake Arena days - small and fast paced) but the Dodgeball aspect makes it unique enough to offer something new. What that means is that your shots (e.g. the balls) bounce off walls, have a trajectory and you can even catch them as in regular dodgeball. The only downside really is that there aren't that many players and you can sometimes find yourself playing against bots online - but even with that its still fun and others usually join before too long.

Worth a purchase, especially on sale.

Can Play some intense fast-paced Dodgeball with the beat
of ANY SONG YOU WANT!?!?!?! Yes! ( .wav and .ogg files )

Get in the face, and explode.
Hit others in the face, and they explode.
Can be Michael Jordan, and make majestic dunks in Hoops mode.

This game is a must-have.

Takes a moment to get use to the physics heavy controls.
Once you have...it's really fun!
Has a single player mode thats compelling enough to play while you get use to the game.
Once you have head over to the online multiplayer where the game truely shines by taking a lobby of people though it's assortment of different game modes keeping the gameplay fresher....for longer ;)
Has no issues getting into matches quickly.
Music is fun with lots of energy, enough variety to not get bored.
If you think you want it..even a little...just buy this game.

Scroll back up. Look at the name of the game. That's the best, most concise, and most accurate review you'll find on the planet.

Now with local splitscreen, this game is a great addition to party playlists, and makes for a casual "FPS" experience with skill-based play placed above all else.

Fun game if you're into some basic area shooter arena style games. Servers are kind of dead though so unless you have friends with the game, you'll be playing against bots though.

If it goes on sale and you get some friends to buy it with you it can be super fun.
