Why Early Access?

“To gain feedback from the community about the game, especially online multiplayer.”

You can vote on players to be added on the Facebook page (see external links). We expect this to be done in roughly 2 months.”

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

“More characters, powerups, features, based on feedback from the community.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Fully playable online and offline with a current set of 80 characters. Refer to the "About this" section for more information.”

June 7 Update


Bug fixes and changes:

-New default cursor that’s easier to see.
-Ellie Wilder buffed; Given 10 stamina instead of 8.
-New taunts/banter added
-Schedule autocalc button changed only available in debug mode
-Controls now display correctly when referring to them when paused
-New American/British taunts/banter
-Field of View ceiling increased (how you can use the mouse wheel or camera options to view more of the pitch)
-Fixed a bug in tutorial whereupon returning to it for a second time, the player’s position would be different
-Fixed undo button so it stops the game from crashing, but temporarily is broken.
-Moved the “defaults” button in Online Options so the game mode is visible.
-Online ranked multiplayer games no longer crash at the end
-Fixed teams getting jumbled and losing players when a new player is unlocked.*
-Legacy built-in messages removed, which would cause a player in full screen to have to minimize and reload their window on some machines.
-Fixed quabble scoring objects disappearing or moving to the center of the pitch
-Fixed quabble rolling infinitely and not being able to be picked up (I think; this type of thing happens rarely so it’s hard to verify when it’s actually fixed. Lettuce know if you experience it)
-Fixed a soft lock in the tutorial where, if a player decided to score on the opposite hoops instead of the ones on the right, they wouldn’t be able to pick up the quabble.
-Various achievements fixed
-Various stats such as tracking online wins and losses fixed
-Some sounds converted from .wav to ogg which should speed up load time.
-Seeker powerup removed until we can find a way to make it less buggy and more noticeable
-Tutorial book will no longer glow after you’ve completed the tutorial for the first time
-Game should no longer break when given certain seeds in the tournament bracket
-Built-in show_messages removed that would cause the game to leave full screen on some machines.

* = unsure if fixed, but the bug is hard to reproduce.

-Client’s players in multiplayer do not always line up correctly on offense.
-Full screen mode doesn’t always appear to save correctly on some machines
-Loading a game can load the wrong file
