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.”

RUCKBALL (ex sumocrats) F2P Early Access launches on May 17th !

We're finally here! RUCKBALL's free Early Access is released this Friday, May 17th on Steam. And there are a lot of new features in this version! We are very happy to show you the launch trailer. Share it with all your friends !

https://youtu.be/rYvFBHk-Lew

During these 8 months we mainly worked on the gameplay redesign and on improving your multiplayer experience. Here are the main updates:


PUNCH : Pure physics.
Now punch is more sensitive, it is still as powerful as ever but you can also make short hits and pass the ball to your teammates. The magnus effect will allow you to put some spin to your ball by hitting it on its sides. Ideal for decieving a goalie or scoring goals from impossible angles.

BALL : Control.
The interception allows you to stop the ball or steal it from your opponents. It is a formidable defence tool, especially when combined with the drible, which has received all our attention with a more precise ball control than ever before.

ENVIRONMENT : Dynamic.
We wanted the environment to become a gameplay resource. As you approach a surface, you can use it as a support to push your body and gain speed. You can try all this on the new Beachblitz arena.

EARLY ACCESS : May 17th : 19h00 UTC.
That's how we're going to do it. Once released, the game will remain online and accessible to all in the form of an Early Access that can be downloaded for free from Steam. You can already add it to your wishlist to be notified of the launch.

The game will only be playable on weekends. This means that if you start the game during the week, you will not be able to create a game and will only have access to the turorials. By joining us on Discord and sharing your experience you will allow us week after week to improve the game and make it the great competitive game we all hope for.

Make the people know about RUCKBALL. See you on Friday.
