What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is a great tool to develop a game with the involvement of the community gathering around it! We can actively react to players’ comments and suggestions, and together create the best possible game we can.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“That’s up to you, actually! Depending on the reception and feedback that we get from the community, it will affect the amount of time needed to complete the game! We have many more levels to create, and we want you to play them, so we certainly do not want to fall into the Early Access “limbo”.

We aim for H2 2023 to fully realize our vision for the game including your input.”

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

“It will be… finished. Complete! Full! As polished as we can make it with tons of collectibles to discover across numerous uniquely themed levels. And also it’ll be created with input from fans!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, our Early Access release has 70% of the planned world content and 90% of the planned gameplay features already in place, fully tested and playable.

There are 3 absolutely massive open-world and historically themed maps to play – Age of Vikings, The 60’s Space Race, and The Golden Pirate Era.

Each map is loaded with its own unique set of gameplay features and objectives, places to explore, moments to wreak havoc in, enemies to engage in epic fights with, secrets to uncover, and a mass of collectibles divided into weapons, utilities, and cosmetic items for your character. On top of that the entire main menu is a fully playable map with its secrets, collectibles, and features.

The entire game and future updates can be played alone or with up to 3 other players in co-op online multiplayer.

We still have 2 more open-world maps to complete, each of which you can find hints and teasers about in the game itself.”

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

“We are huge gamers ourselves, so it's super important for us to make sure that the price for the game is always fair, and reflects the quality of the game! We are starting Early Access with a lower price, and plan on gradually raising the price with major updates. Needless to say, all early adopters will get the updates without any additional costs :)”

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

“We have created a special Discord channel for our ballsy fans to share their thoughts and chat around about the game! It’s a great place to form a community and talk about various ideas. We can’t promise that all of them will be implemented into the game but for sure all of them will be taken into consideration!”

“It isn’t just the size of it that is impressive, but the sheer depth. [...] I haven’t found exploring a 3D platformer this satisfying since Super Mario Odyssey.”

“The stylized graphics this game has is just beautiful to look at. It is not even that taxing to your hardware.”

“While Bang-On Balls might resemble the strange Countryball phenomenon, it does its own thing, and it does it well.”



About This Game

Bang-On Balls: Chronicles rolls onto the stage! A 3D platformer inspired by some of the best games of the genre including some Italian plumbers, a blue hedgehog, or a bear with a bird on his backpack! It’s a game where you become a reckless hero, customize your ballsy character, and play by yourself or in 4 players co-op with friends through various (slightly inaccurate) historically themed levels.

Are we gonna start with the Viking era? Sure, let's loot some treasure!
But the ball doesn’t stop rolling here! Bang-On Balls: Chronicles is gonna be updated on a regular basis, adding a new value to the game with new features, skins, maps, and many more! Where do we go next? Feudal Japan? はい、もちろん。Race to Space? Поехали! Fire up the rocket boosters! Wild West cowballs? Buckle up, partner!

Some of the ball-banging features include vast open levels full of challenges to complete, treasures to unlock, epic destruction, and plenty of weapons, shields, and other fun items that not only let you customize your character but also gives you an edge both in combat and exploration!

Extremely fun and intuitive ball-dashing and ball-smashing gameplay mechanics, and a very silly sense of humor round-up for an all-around entertainment for you and your friends!


  • Glorious 3D Ball-Banging platforming action as you become a reckless hero in a series of (slightly inaccurate) historical-based events!
  • Vast open stages to explore, each set in a different time period, with fun items and weapons to collect to give you an edge during combat...or just to destroy your environment!
  • Pick your own country, customize your character and play with incredible next-gen, state-of-the-art, highly advanced… uhhmm… balls.
  • Grow, shrink, smash, bash down the environment, the world is your destructible playground!
  • Beautifully stylized graphics. Balls were never so shiny before!
  • Stand out with your look in up to 4 ball-friends multiplayer, while helping out each other complete unique challenges.
  • Loosely inspired by a worldwide phenomenon called memes. Are you familiar with the concept? We love it.
  • It teaches history. Well, kinda… Not really… But it has historical levels!
