What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“To hear back from the community. Allowing the community to share their feedback and ideas through the development process, to hopefully make this a game everyone will enjoy and come back to for many years.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The goal is to release the game sometime during 2021.”

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

“More game modes including Season, Postseason, and Home Run Contest, more teams and players with biorhythms implemented to add strategy and depth, more stadiums with day and night games, and overall polish, to name a few.

In Season mode users will be able to play through a short, medium, or long season with their selected team, fight for a spot in the Postseason and onto the Championship. The players stats will also be tracked and recorded throughout.

In the Home Run Contest mode users will try to hit as many home runs as they can before the 10th out.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core baseball experience.

There are currently just eight teams, and one stadium with no crowd, and no in-game sound effects or music. However, you can pick up the controller and play against a friend or the AI, or let the AI play against itself. There are in-game stats being tracked (singles, doubles, stolen bases, strike outs, etc) but are not being recorded.

The game is constantly being fine tuned. From the AI and it's on field decisions, teams and players being balanced, to the batters stepping into the box to take a swing. There is a lot of room for improvement.

The presentation is far from the ideal vision. The UI is minimal and limited, only Exhibition mode being readily available, stadium and player models and animation being thrown in at first pass, the same for the art used, it's not the intended style of the game.

I hope every one can see pass the rough edges and instead, see the potential.”

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

“Yes, the price will be raised as the game grows with the added game modes, teams, players, polish, etc, towards its final release.”

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

“The communities voice is very valuable. Their feedback, suggestions, and ideas will help improve the game throughout development. There is the Steam's community forum as well as a Discord channel for users to share their experience and thoughts.”
