What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We know that creating significant and meaningful on the eSport scene is no small task and this is why that we have involved the players community since the very beginning of the development (when there was no menu or options... Or texture )!
While there is still much to be done, we believe that our game is now ready to enter a new phase and we are ready to open our game to more through early access and use this opportunity to make it reach its full potential!”

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until we reach a level where we can confidently organize pro-caliber tournament!
We expect it to take somewhere between 6 months and 1 year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

  • Less gameplay & connexion bugs
  • Better performance optimisation
  • Better lag management
  • Team system
  • Ranked mode
  • New characters
  • New implants
  • Improved spectator mode
  • Voice acting for characters
  • Dedicated servers
  • As well as other choices based on choice from the community playing the game!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Core gameplay and meta-game are ALPHA. Fun is definitely there!
Still a lot of small bugs and visual polish to be done.
A few important features missing (team, rank, spectator mode).”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“No!
Arena: Cyber Evolution is FREE and will always remain so. :-)”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Community is already actively part of Arena: Cyber Evolution since the very beginning (even when the game was so early it looked like an atari 2600 game). Here are a few initiatives already in place to interact with our players:
  • Daily design meeting on our Twitch channel (7PM ET every week day)
  • Open discussion about the design and development on our Steam forum
  • Our design documents are open and available for the community to see
  • Our entire development now archived on Youtube
  • Many people of our community take active part in the project (community management, QA, event organization, design, etc)
  • Supporters will get to vote for the next features we develop!

Production Update (Week 19)

August 8th, 2014



Hello Spearhead honorary members,

This is Simon speaking!

After 3 months of absence on a secret mysterious mission (that apparently took place all around the world - real and fictitious), I finally got back to the Spearhead HQ and I am ready to rock!

Honestly, I am really, really impressed by how the game has progressed in the last 3 months and I just LOVE the new art style and characters of the game :)



The next step will be a very important one: we are on the verge of really opening the game to everyone through Steam Early Access!

The Early Access launch will happen next Friday, on August 14th. It's coming up very soon!

We are getting ready for the big challenge we will soon be facing: getting the game to be known and played around the clock!

We are still figuring out the plan, but we can confirm it will involve the following topics:

  • Organizing tournaments
  • Figuring epic one-liners to describe our game
  • Creating viral marketing material
  • Harassing journalists
  • Trying to make friends who have lots of friends
  • Getting drunk (ok, this is not specific to the communication strategy, but it’ll help us to make new friends)
  • And much more!
Help us out and spread the word about Project Cyber on Facebook, Twitter, Twitch.tv, at the water cooler, etc. Propose your marketing ideas to the Steam forum.



We can already announce that Project Cyber will be presented at PAX Prime (August 29th to September 1st) and that we will hold daily tournaments! This will be a chaotic, hardcore and also super fun experience for all involved!

If you're around, please come by and say hi. You'll find us at Booth #6016.

WE NEED YOU!

You are our very first core players and we will need your help for the coming push towards Early Access and afterwards! Join us on the daily Community Stream on Twitch (7PM Eastern) and invite your friends to watch as well.

Report any issues you see, which is as easy as pressing the Report Bug button in the pause menu on the Twitch build.

And as I mentioned before, if you have any ideas, contacts or advice on how to get the game better known, let us know on our Steam forum.

Cheers guys, see you on Twitch!

It's great to be back home. :-)

-Simon

“The futuristic cyberpunk soccer game was the best new esport at PAX East”
Dailydot

“It could very well be the next big esport at competitions all across the globe”

“The communal aspect of Project Cyber is what revolutionizes this experience. Not only can you voice your opinion during the development process, you will also get the chance to change the match you’re watching by choosing an event”

About the Game



At Spearhead Games, we believe that e-sports are the next step in international competition. We believe that this growing trend is on the verge of becoming mainstream globally and will play a significant role in defining the future of sports.

Arena: Cyber Evolution is the result of our passion for this phenomenon and what it can become.
We know that creating a game that is significant and meaningful on the e-sport scene is no small task and this is why that we have involved the player community since the very beginning of the development, when there were no menus, options, or even textures!


Arena: Cyber Evolution (ACE) is a futuristic physics-based sports game in which players confront each other in 3 vs 3 matches of wits and twitch reflexes.
By featuring a MOBA-like champion logic, ACE brings an unprecedented twist to the sports genre by allowing players to choose from a variety of super-powered heroes and what style of gameplay they prefer to build their own team strategies.

Designed from the ground up around the mouse & keyboard, ACE was not envisioned only as a sport game, but really as a new sport.



ACE’s ultra-precise control scheme allows players to analogically manipulate the disk using simple mouse gestures.

Just like in real sports, this gameplay allows for super intuitive gameplay while proposing nearly infinite depth & skill cap.



  • An unique blend of action games, sports games and MOBA.
  • The closest experience to playing a traditional sport in a video game.
  • Dynamic physics-based gameplay that is both deep and accessible.
  • Innovative mouse gesture control allows for fluid and natural actions (passes, shots, intercepts and jukes).
  • Having all human players makes positioning meaningful and allow for infinite team strategies.
  • Several characters each with unique powers and play styles
  • Unlock implants (to improve and customize your characters), team boosts, upgrades, and special abilities.
  • Very fun to watch as a spectator - even without prior knowledge of the game.
  • New characters, implants, custom arenas, events, challenges, and much more coming soon! New updates every month!






Arena: Cyber Evolution is free to play and we want it to stay this way forever. We believe that it should be at the core of any sport to be accessible for everyone to play and practice no matter what.
As an independent game studio, we however need some money to keep developing the game and improving it.

This is why we integrated monetization features in the game with the possibility to buy skins, hats and other customizations with real money. For us, this is a simple way to allow players who really enjoy and believe in the game to support its continued development by ‘’donating’’ and receiving rewards for it.

All the money received this way will be used to fuel the game development. Based on how much we collect through monetization, we will develop the following features:



In addition to the items available in-game, the following great packages are available as DLC:

Supporters Pack DLC

Founders Pack DLC

Champions Pack DLC

Pillar Pack DLC

Not a bad game, but definately need to have a bot replace teammates when they rage quit or at least penalize them in some way. Kinda sucks when your goal tender bails & leaves your net open.

Amazing game, Fun, fast paced, and classes are balanced. This could easily be a esports title if we get more playerbase. Great game, come check it out!

I played this way earlier in beta (or alpha, I'm not sure). Either way, it was tons of fun, I just went back to see what has changed and found a few pretty decent improvments. If you have a few friends to play this with, grab it. It's only like 2GB I believe

If you like to make stuff and be creative this project is for you! You get to test a new build of the game daily right from the start of the design process. The creators of Tiny Brains (a game based on teamwork) have opened up their team and dev process to community ideas.
