What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As a multiplayer game RUCKBALL needs a solid base of players to become great. We believe that Early access is the best way to introduce players who are passionate about competitive games to this new sport.
Thanks to your feedback, we will have another vision of our game and it will make it better. Feel free to talk to us and share your experience with the community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are independent developers. We do not know what the future will be made of.”

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

“Of course we will constantly improve its gameplay and interface, but our main objective is to give RUCKBALL a competitive dimension. We are planning on making a matchmaking system with ranking, and games hosted on powerful servers if the budget allows us to do so.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have already made two alphas and with the help of our community the level of RUCKBALL gameplay is very close to our expectations. You can play 6-minutes matches in 3 vs 3 in two arenas. Be careful, for now the game is only playable on weekends, this gives us time to integrate your feedbacks and guarantees that you will find opponents to have fun.”

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

“The game will remain free. But making RUCKBALL a compétitive game is an important investment (mainly servers), we will need your contribution, most certainly by proposing Season passes, DLC and cosmetic modifications for your teams.”

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

“Every Monday morning we meet to discuss the informations that players have given us on social networks. Please note that half of the game's features have been suggested by them. Let's continue to do so.”
