What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Flinger Tactics has a core gameplay loop that is functionally complete with three separate game modes and a customizable rule set. The game itself is completely playable and a lot fun! But there's so much more I'd love to add and that all depends on the level of interest from players.

I chose Early Access because I'd love to get as much feedback as possible to determine the best changes and features I can add to make this the best turn-based sports game featuring cute creatures of all time. :D”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I plan on fully releasing Flinger Tactics sometime in mid 2020, depending on player feedback, along with a mobile version.”

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

“The Early Access version shouldn't be drastically different from the full release build. The most important change will be fixing some minor bugs along with listening to player feedback and making small adjustments to improve the overall user experience.

Currently there's free play, quick play, and tournament game modes in place. I would love to add an additional season-based game mode which may or may not be included in the full release, but that all depends on the level of interest from players.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently the core gameplay experience is stable and playable (and pretty fun!) on Mac and Windows devices. Players can play matches against the computer or local co-op player with a customizable ruleset in single matches or tournaments. There's also a practice arena where players can learn the basic mechanics of the game in an endless non-turn limited environment.”

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

“No, it will always be free because I'd like as many people as possible to experience this game so that I can determine whether there's a viable audience for strategy sports games.”

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

“I'll be listening carefully to community feedback both on specific features, as well as general concepts of what type of experience players would like from this game. Since this is a very niche genre I'll be very engaged with passionate players to figure out what they like and dislike, and I'll be able to tailor the development process to incorporate their feedback iteratively.

If you have any feedback, questions, or constructive criticism please feel free to leave a message on the Steam Discussion boards or email FlingerTactics@gmail.com.”

About This Game

Flinger Tactics is a turn-based strategy sports game where you fling your team of cute creatures to victory! The sport of Flingball is played like a combination of billiards, air hockey, and soccer where you'll fling athletes to break bumpers, tackle opponents, and score goals! As the coach of your squad, each turn you'll need to evaluate the field and determine which fling will bring you closer to victory. Scoring is always a good choice but when you can't you might consider making a substitution, repositioning, or utilizing one of your athlete's unique abilities.

Fling strategically! Each athlete class has a unique shape and ability. Some are defensive and can restore your protective bumpers, while others can frustrate the other team by knocking your opponents unconscious. With each fling you're altering the state of the field and often if you're not careful there will be unintended consequences. Nothing is worse than scoring an own goal!

Fling for fun! The flingers love nothing more than competing in the sport of Flingball! Watch the happiness on their faces as they fling around and react to the results of your fling and listen to their silly quips. Each flinger has a unique personality. Some are optimistic and encouraging, others are pessimistic and unconfident, and of course there's plenty of trash talkers.

Play the way you want! All the rules including athlete, bumper, and ball counts are completely customizable so you can decide the best way to play Flinger Tactics. Each flinger has a unique ability, personality, and appearance and every team that they play for has their own colors, name, and motto for a highly replayable experience.

Compete in tournaments! Play 4, 8, or 16-team tournaments against friends or computer-controlled teams to determine which team is the greatest of them all.

Mess around in Free Play! In this practice mode, there's no turns and no end to the madness. Fling your athletes with reckless abandon and watch the chaos unfold!
