Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Because we want you to help us mold our game!
Learning what the people who are playing our games want is going to be a big part in making Necroball an amazing finished product. We want to involve our community early and use our collaborative imagination to shape and polish Necroball.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope no longer than a year. If Necroball is a huge success and we can dedicate ourselves to finishing it exclusively, it could be far less than that.”

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

“We want to add 3 more maps, 2 more characters, new character abilities, hopeful character cross-overs from other games, each character's signature Ultimate Moves, a PvE survival mode, and finely-tuned game mechanics that have been polished to perfection.

We are really excited about Survival Mode. Players will get to defend against waves of enemies alongside their friends in the Necroball arena. We think that would be awesome and see this as a primary feature we want to have in place before full release.

We also would like to implement a ladder system to keep track of each player's skill and pair them up with appropriately skilled opponents.

Additionally, we want to listen to you and find out what you think should be added to the game and fixed/polished before we release the full version.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Alpha+. The core mechanics we want to have in the game are there (minus Survival mode) and we want to begin sculpting it into a final product that is worthy of your time and appreciation. Please help us dedicate ourselves entirely to Necroball by purchasing a copy in Early Access!

Currently, there are 4 characters to choose from: The Necrocorgi, Brunhilde the Lich, Zuzu the Demonologist, and Crazy Jack. Each character has their own abilities and upgrades to unlock by completing Necroball matches.

We have one small graveyard map intended for 1v1 play, and we are working on a large graveyard map intended for 2v2 play.”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features. Purchasing the game during Early Access benefits you because it will help us when we need it most and you get it when it is the cheapest!”

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

“We plan to involve our community every step of the way. If we implement a new character or ability, starting a forum post about it and learning what everyone thinks are the greatest parts of that new character will be one of the ways we involve our community.”

PATCH NOTES 1.3:

- Removed the health bars on tombstones. This helps reduce the visual clutter and the tombstones already change their sprites to show more damaged versions as they lose hit points.
- All games are 5 minutes long. This currently solves a high-severity multiplayer bug that crashes the game at some point after 5 minutes have been played. Once we solve the issue, game time options will be reactivated.
- Removed damage numbers inside the projectile impact animations. These were originally for us to track damage buffs to make sure they were working and now that we know they are, we have removed the numbers to help reduce visual clutter.

SOME THINGS WE ARE STILL WORKING ON:
- Bugs involving team names being incorrectly assigned when playing multiple games in a row.
- Multiplayer Necroball sync issues.
- Ability modifications (lots of abilities will change in the next patch for the better!)
- Improved aiming mechanics and reticles

Thanks for playing!
