What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to make sure that our characters, maps, and modes are as balanced as they can possibly be. Early Access allows us to try new things until we get it right. More importantly, it encourages the community to get involved, and lets us know where we can improve.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“With our current development roadmap, we're looking at 4 months of Early Access.”

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

“We plan to add maps, modes, polish, a single player challenge mode, an in depth tutorial that gives some backstory into the world of Crucial Throw, Mac/Linux support and more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable with the following features:
  • Local multiplayer for 2 or 4 players
  • 6 starting characters and 1 secret character
  • 4 maps
  • 1 game mode

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

“During early access Crucial Throw will be available for 50% of the full release price.”

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

“We will be actively monitoring our Steam discussion page to address any suggestions, feedback and concerns. We'll also provide development updates so the community can let us know what they think about the content that we're building.”

About This Game

Crucial Throw is a 2D sports platformer where athletes from across the galaxy compete in high speed competition. Choose from seven unique competitors, as they battle to resolve age old conflicts. Each playable character has unique stats and skills that must be utilized to secure victory.

Grab the ball and use it to destroy your opponents goals. Dashing into enemies steals the ball and causes a brief stun. Score by destroying all three of your opponents goals. Every time a player scores the speed of the game increases.
