What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This game is fully playable as a batting challenge with three difficulty levels. The only remaining features in development are the animated fielders - which we have already motion captured and are in the process of applying to the game now.

We are also working on challenge modes for the game where you can choose a scenario - such as batting out the remaining 10 overs of a test match with the last wicket to secure a draw - to add additional features to the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“2 months”

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

“Features include:
Animated fielders, Challenge modes, different grounds, improved audio, more variations in bowling.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Fully playable batting game with multiple bowlers including slow, off spin, leg spin, medium, fast medium and fast.
Digital score board in an international ground with top scores displayed on an honours board.”

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

“Yes, early access users can buy the game at a discounted rate.”

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

“We would welcome feedback on what features to add and the difficulty levels. How difficult was it for you to bat?”

November Update Is Here!

Dear Ball! Fans

**** NOV 2017 - UPDATE IS HERE ***

Thank you for your ongoing support and for posting feedback.

After gathering extensive feedback over the summer, and after many requests from you all, we've now pushed out our latest update. We're sure you'll agree that the changes and enhancements have improved the game substantially and for the better.

We're still open to more feedback and will continue to refine the game as we get that feedback.

Please continue to post your comments on the community boards and we'll ensure our developers get the feedback.

Thanks for your support!

Update - October 2017

Good morning, community!

Firstly, our apologies for the lack of communication. It was an email from Zeeshan Arshad yesterday that caused us to take a look here. For some reason, we have not been receiving any notifications or community digests. We assumed it had gone quiet here. So thank you, Zeeshan! We're here and keen to talk to you all.

We're truly determined to make the very best VR Cricket Game available. With that in mind, we have spent the last year not just in development, but taking the game around the country for user testing, ideas and feedback from a wide range of people.

Earlier in the year, we partnered with the England Cricket Team sponsor - NatWest - to take the game on tour, visiting international cricket grounds all summer, to get feedback from a wide range of people. We were also able to get England players - both current and ex - to play the game and provide feedback. This game has been tested not only by cricket fans and enthusiasts, but also by cricket professionals!

This has led to a period of development away from Steam and the online community for us to refine the game.

Now the cricket season is over in the UK, we have actioned all the feedback we have received and are in the final stages of packaging up the game for a full Steam release!

We're sorry you've had to wait so long and so are going to work double quick to get it out to you all. Our aim? On Steam by the end of next week! Watch this space, but please be patient; we're not sure of what snags we may face along the way.

In the meantime, check out what we've been working on: http://virtualrealitycricket.club

Thanks for sticking with us!
