What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“To be the best you have to work with the best. Calling all radically cool dudes and dudettes to put on their hot pink floaties and take a dip to help make the best battle/co-op party game ever (well, really really fun). Our focus is creating a couch party you will love to hate. Let’s be honest this game already kicks arse, but after you play, you will understand there is so much more potential for cool things to be added! You get the Super Goodwin guarantee this game will be more badass, complete, and released or you will receive a free hug (a good one).”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Current plan: 3-6 Months depending on community involvement and new amazingly creative ideas.”

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

“We intend to exit Early Access with 12+ playable characters, 6+ game modes, mid-match randomize mutator, more easter eggs, solid online multiplayer, and a buttload more content and laughs.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Fast-paced 1-4-players including four game modes, ten characters with unique abilities (who’s your best?), ton of power-ups, wacky pool rule mutators to mix up matches, and battle/co-op action.”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we drop new game changing content and features.”

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

“By using the Steam community and in-game communication tools Tubetastic will be sure to swim in Early Access. We want to see what uniquely crazy ideas the community can come up with so we can make this game stand out even more with it’s creative warmth.”

What have we been up to? | Updates to come in 0.2.0



Hello Tubers! Hope you're having fun with Tubetastic 0.1.9.

You might have noticed that it has been a month since our last post. Where have we been? What have we been up to?

Let's talk about it in this post.

Early Access Release

After releasing our first ever game as an indie group on Early Access, we were thrilled to see people enjoy something that we had worked on for more than a year.

The release also brought a lot of suggestions and feedback from our players, to make the game better, which we wrote down and started working on.

A big part of that feedback was requests for two features, both of which we had in mind for the full release (after Early Access):

  • Bots should be allowed in online matches
  • Players should be able to join mid-match

We felt that these two features would be a big addition to the game, and would greatly improve the players' experiences.

They'll be coming to you in 0.2.0, but we don't have an ETA, since we will need to do a lot of QA testing to ensure the best possible experience for you.

For now, let's talk about the features listed above, and more that's coming in 0.2.0.

Bots in Online

Right now, if you want to play a game with bots, you have to start the game in offline mode. If you want to play with your friends online, you have to start it in online mode.

With 0.2.0, we'll be bringing these two worlds together: you'll be able to start the game in online mode and begin playing with bots right away.



So, the empty slots in your game will be filled with bots. This means that you can even start playing alone, without having anyone else join your lobby!

Mid-Match Joining

Once your game has begun, anyone will be able to join your match, no matter where you are in the game.



So you can just start playing with Botty McBotterSons, and when another player loads up their game, no matter where they are on the planet, they'll be able to find your game, join and shoot you to oblivion.

What if I don't want bots online?

Don't worry, you'll be able to disable bots if you just want to play with your friends and beat their asses without the bots interrupting you.



There will be an option in the settings to turn off bots. Of course, you'll still get bots if there's no one else in your lobby, but once you have more than one players and bots are disabled, they'll disappear.

If you have them enabled though, you'll be able to play alongside bots and your friends. Not to say that the bots aren't your friends... they'll always be there for you.

Player Info Pop-Up

You know how you can press Tab in other games to view information about the connected players?

Well, we're adding that to the game. You'll be able to open it using the Select button on your gamepad, as well as the Tab key.



You can see info about the players, like the health, kills, etc. and their powers/weapons. And you can also see their pings (yes, my ping is bad, I live half an Earth away from the server).

We can't wait!

We're very excited for this update, and we hope that you are too! We cannot wait to finish working on it and bring the awesomeness to your computers.

Till then, happy summer!

Version 0.1.9 Updates | QOL Improvements



This update is our first after the Early Access release, and so it brings a lot of QOL changes based on feedback from our players (thank you all!).

So let's start with:

Keyboard/Mouse Controls

Players had complained that playing without a gamepad was hard, and rightly so. Your Tuber could only be turned around using your four arrow keys (or WASD), making it hard to aim at stuff.

So we changed it to use the mouse for aiming. Now you can move around with your arrow keys and point with your mouse cursor!



Controller Changes

Previously, moving controlled aiming. You could only shoot in the direction that you were moving in. This changed with the update mentioned above - using your mouse, you could aim in one direction while moving in another.

We had to do something similar for our gamepad folks as well, as to not make keyboard controls OP. So now, you can optionally use your right analog stick to aim, while you use your left stick to move and the triggers to shoot/boost.

Since it is optional, you don't have to change your style of play! You can still keep using your left stick and never touch the right one. It'll be like nothing ever changed.

Servers & Improved Matchmaking

There's been a little update to the servers list: US East was removed.

The matchmaking system was improved. Previously, if you selected one server, you could only find matches on that server. So searching on EU, you couldn't play with players playing on US servers.

Now, if you search for a match on a specific server, and nobody is playing there, it will automatically move to the server that has players (if any). So you don't have to worry about manually selecting a populated server.

More Updates
  • If a player leaves a match before the game starts, they are removed from the match instead of giving them the "dead" status

  • If the host leaves before the match starts, it restarts your matchmaking request

  • Reduced the frequency of mines in Survival, and added a little delay when they spawn in a ring

  • Implemented sentry.io, so whenever your game crashes, we receive the crash data so that we could fix it

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed countdown graphics, at the start and end of the match

  • King of the Pool bots will now try to go around barriers instead of getting stuck

  • Fixed a bug where the game would start before you pressed Enter/Start

  • Fixed issues related to delta-timing, which mainly affected slower systems

  • Fixed an issue where other players would face your mouse if using keyboard/mouse

  • More minor fixes
