What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Finally after two years of hard work, we can release an early access version of Bombinator.

Why early access?


Well after two years of commitment to the project it’s hard to say it is all about “Fail Fast” methodology, yet it was hard to create working prototype ready for players earlier. Now

So should I be involved in early access program, is it any good for me?
That’s an important question and to answer it we have to now a little more about You. Are you here to experience a final gameplay, to see a ready product? Have you great expectations of a gameplay and full servers of other people? If yes than this is definitely not a good moment to even read this post.

I want to be more than just a regular player!

And benefits? Are there any?


We reserved few special perk in game just for you our most value and dedicated players so called insiders. For active help and gameplay during early access stage you can unlock achievement which will not be available once early access program is finished. This achievement will unlock a special characters and in-game title!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This one hard question, if you asked me back during summer’16 when will Bombinator early access program be ready I would point out October 2016, yet here we are and its already May 2017. I hope to that we will leave early access program before end of 2018 but it truly depends on community interest in this project. Resources are very limited but even thou this current stage of Bombinator proves that we are dedicated to this topic.”

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

“So what is scheduled for near future
  • More maps, 7 new maps up to 40x30 size for each 5 themes,
  • In-game lottery as a mini-game,
  • Placing bets for spectators,
  • 4 additional match systems,
  • Teams,
  • Sudden death mode

And even more distant future plans
  • Online multiplayer story mode
  • Introduction of classes and special abilities
  • Guilds

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“So what can you expect to be working right now:
  • First initial map will be available – a small one 6x6 perfect for fast 1 vs 1 allowing up to 4 players,
  • Ready 5 distinctive themes (city, wester, dungeon, sci-fi, greenlands) for initial map,
  • Possibility to place a bet on match outcome - only for actual players,
  • Watching match as spectator,
  • Creating friendship relations,
  • Exchanging messages,
  • Death match arena mode,
  • Money transfer,
  • Account customization (model, nick, status, explosion effect and nick color)
  • Achievements,
  • Special rewards and in-game titles,
  • WWW players profiles,
  • Forum and service,
  • Steam account integration.

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

“Plan is to keep this game free to play only this way we will gather great community of players. There will be premium account in game that would be charged annually. The premium features will only affect themes and visual customizations therefore gameplay will be always free.

The cost of annual subscription might change with time.”

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

“We really count on our community to take part in creation of this project. This game is for you therefore your opinion is most important for us. Before we even knew that Bombinator will be released on Steam we already have created a forum where we planned to gather input from our users. Forum is fully integrated with game, so once you log in to Bombinator you can set your forum access password and start using it https://bombinator.net/forum.

We are about to shape this game together. We will not implement all your ideas but we will consider them and use your judgment which features should we fix or implement first.”
