What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As a small indie studio, we want to get Space Ball into the hands of players as soon as possible during development in order to gather community feedback to improve the experience. This will allow us to focus our efforts on specific areas of the game the community feels would benefit from further development.

As a multiplayer-focused game, it’s critical that we ensure features are balanced and Early Access on Steam is ideally suited to that task. This gives us time to finesse the gameplay experience whilst exploring new ideas like gameplay modes or customization options, creating the best VR sports game possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game plans to be in early access for no more than six months.”

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

“We plan to add a lot more content to the game. This includes more single-player and multiplayer modes, stadiums, and customization features (hats & heads) alongside content that community feedback suggests. This could mean content for the final release may change depending on player suggestions.

We are going to finely balance the game, ensuring it is bug-free and optimized for lower-spec systems, incorporating more visual and sound effects polished to a high standard.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current build has all core gameplay mechanics in place, with the game playable solo using bots or with up to 6-players online. A profile system ensures a competitive edge with stats that players can easily keep track of, offering plenty of replayability. As is the case with in-development Early Access titles, bugs, balance tweaks and performance fluctuation should be expected.

Current features (as of July 2023):

Soccer, Basketball and Handball sports modes
1vs1, 2vs2 and 3vs3 team selections
AI Bots to fill vacant spaces (Easy/Medium/Hard difficulties)
3 stadiums (with changeable colours)
Profile system showing a player’s stats (win/loss/calories burnt)
Multiple hats and animal characters options to select from
Private or Open match selections with a custom room code system
Selectable match times (1/3/5/7 & 50 mins)
Physical locomotion system
Gameplay tutorial & practice mode
Lobby jukebox”

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


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

“We want to create the best VR sports game possible, so feedback and input from the community is essential. The community will be involved in every step of development, and we are looking forward to hearing ideas from our players. You can join the discussion in the Steam community or our Discord channel.”

About This Game

Experience the excitement and exhilaration of Space Ball! Firing a rocket under everyday sports, Space Ball launches you into an arena full of action, where quick thinking and lightning reaction times are all that matter.

Featuring Football and Basketball gameplay modes, this competitive multiplayer is all about scoring points and bragging rights. Slam dunk a basketball like a pro or use your body to score a goal in football, use the arenas anyway you see fit to gain the advantage.

Space Ball features a unique movement mechanic that is easy to master. Simply use your hands to leap across the arenas. Slam them into the ground to accelerate, then use the Dash feature to soar into the rafters! You’ve never played a game of Basketball as vertical as this!

Space Ball features:

Create Private and Public matches
1vs1, 2vs2 and 3vs3 team selection
Online multiplayer and AI Bots with multiple difficulty settings
Character customisation options - be a Cat, Pigeon, or even a Capybara!
Arenas are filled with fans to bring matches to life!
Full voice chat with privacy settings

Space Ball on Steam also supports cross-play functionality with the Meta Quest version.
