What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This game is totally functional and enjoyable as is, but I would like to continue to improve the performance of the game and incorporate feedback from players. For example, I would like to further improve some of the audio and visual aspects of the game (such as sound effects and textures), and make any necessary modifications to the individual lanes as necessary based on player feedback.

Based on user feedback thus far, I will also be adding local multiplayer.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately three months.”

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

“The key differences I would like to achieve are:
  • Incorporate leaderboards for all 10 lanes and 3 scoring modes
  • Local multiplayer for all 3 scoring modes
  • Minor tweaks to the lanes (as necessary) based on user feedback
  • General audio/visual/performance enhancements
  • Further ways to customize the gameplay experience

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All critical features of the game are already in place and ready to play. All 20 lanes are functional for each of the 3 scoring modes, all 24 bowling balls are playable (16 must be unlocked based on gameplay), personal best stats for each lane are provided, and general functionality such as teleportation and option menus are already in place. In other words, the game is completely playable and enjoyable in its current state! The only desired feature that needs to be added during Early Access is Leaderboards. Leaderboards will be added for both sets of lanes for all 3 scoring modes.”

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

“The price will not change after Early Access.”

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

“I plan on listening to feedback from players during Early Access, and implementing improvements based on the feedback received. For example, is it way too difficult to get a strike on Lane 5? Let me know, and if enough of the community agrees with this stance I will modify the lane geometry to make the difficulty more reasonable.”

V2.0 Update - Customizations!

With this release, many new features were added to the game!

Customizable Audio:
You can now choose custom sound effects for most sounds in the game. In addition, you can also edit the volume for both music and sound effects.

Customizable Visuals:
You can now change the color of the pins for each course, and can change the color of the lighting in the rooms.

Customizable Physics:
You can now play with anti-gravity pins (once you hit them they float around like they are in outer space)! You can also apply up to a 2X multiplier to your throws. This allows you to throw the ball harder in the game without having to swing the controller as hard.

All of these settings can be changed by accessing the menu in each course (not in the main lobby area).

I hope you all find that these new customizations provide new and unique ways to experience the game!
