What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is a great platform for garnering exposure for our game as well as provide us with an avenue to gather feedback from unbiased players and incorporate that feedback into successive builds. Our current team has a group of playtesters, but they are familiar with the game and Early Access would allow us to reach players who have had no prior experience and thus are able to provide more unbiased feedback than someone who had become reasonably familiar with our game. It will also allow us to more properly assess a price for our game, based on perceived quality.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to move out of Early Access in about 4 months, but unforeseen circumstances could prolong this process.”

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

“More content, more difficulties, more polished art and mechanics. This includes various AI difficulty settings ranging from easy to hard, multiple types of game modes (Such as time attack, score x to win, and practice), and possibly bonus game modes if time allows. The AI will be iterated on moving forward, and the whip mechanics refined. As updates roll out to Unreal 4 giving VR support, we plan to implement features as required.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“A feature complete, art-locked build that allows the user to play a full game loop defaulted to “First to 3”, and a single AI difficulty that offers new players a challenge, but returning players a way to raise their skill cap.”

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

“The team only feels it fair to allow the user to test our experience at a price we feel is indicative of the content we plan to deliver while in early access. Once the game launches, the price will most likely have a small increase, indicative of the work that has been put in and reflective of the new user experience.”

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

“When major updates are to be rolled out and new features added or changes made, we do plan to inform the community that follows Shadow Circuit, as they have a right to know what their potential investment is going towards.”

About This Game

Have you ever wanted to compete in an entirely illegal underground sports game operation between three competing companies for the great honor of your tech!? Enter the Shadow Circuit. Doskoi, Hachimau, and Ikaros63 have shareholders in this year’s tournament -- and you are their representative contender. Face off against the amalgamation of the millenia's newest tech, and prove once and for all which company is superior. Utilizing your gravity whips and anti-G suit, compete for victory in a battle of attrition and points in this high-octane sport.

  • Launch the ball into the other person's goal with your Gravity Whip.
  • Play in Zero-G space, where the only forces that affect the ball are the Gravity Whip and the Gravity Wells
  • Ionize the opponent AI, the opponent's goal, or a Gravity Well for different, helpful effects (will be fully implemented in the near future).
  • Compete against a competent AI that will keep you playing for hours.

What's Next?
As we continue to develop the game, we hope to implement new game modes and further tweak the AI.
