What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The mentality of the Dreamirl team is, from the beginning, to make games with the players.
We developed a nearly complete game and are looking to improve it and add features with your feedback.

Also Pongarena is our first multiplayer game which requires times to be stable and robust, tweaking and adjusting, we want to take the time required to offer a cool experience and add servers where there is players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We think that the game will stay in Early Access for a year, during this time we will make all the main features and the game will be stable for all platforms.”

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

“In the finale version the ranked mode will be complete, new games modes and a story mode.
We are also thinking about a 2v2 mode that would be tested during the Early Access phase.

In the next coming months we will first add the pilots, the overclock system to customize your ships, then we will see.
At first the In-App purchases will not be available in the game to let us make more adjustments.

Also, the game will be playable on Mac and Linux.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“You can play online against random players, against a friend or create a custom game and share a code, or an offline game against an AI or a friend.

There is 5 unlockable/playable ships and only one map for now.
You can unlock few skins for each ships also.

The gamepad support isn’t complete, you need the mouse or touch to navigate from screen to screen.
And the game is only playable on Windows for now.”

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

“Nope, the game will still be “Free to Play”.”

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

“All the team is on social networks, forums, reddit, but also Discord, Overtone and Twitch where you can easily chat and talk with us.
We are taking time to talk with our players, sharing ideas that we keep for later to discuss in a team meeting.
When someone share an idea that seems to be good for everyone, we are trying it and if people like it, it’s definitely included in the game.”

About This Game

Pongarena is a versus arcade game in a Cyberpunk universe.
Choose a pilot, your spaceship, and fight against players from all around the world in many game modes, reach the top of the Space Tower in ranked mode or stand down to the ground, in the darkness of the city ISKIA.

Between a Pong and a shooting game, not forgetting the popular arcade “Air Hockey”, Pongarena is really easy to play, but hard to master!

Play for free now and challenge your friends in the arena!

Game modes:

  • Online “quick”: play against random players
  • Local: fight against the AI or a friend on the same computer
  • Customized: create your game with the settings you want, and invite anyone to join you
  • Training: fight against an AI that is adapting to you, to make you a better fighter
  • Ranked: reach the top of the Space Tower, qualifying you fight after fight, and reach the top ranking

Choose your pilot:

In Pongarena you are free to choose your pilot, each of them has unique talents and will influence the way you play.
Some pilots are a better match with some ships, create your own combinations to outmatch your opponents.

Your ship, your rules:

Do you prefer a fast and aggressive gamestyle? Or you tend to be more defensive?
Or maybe, you prefer to use all the available power to crush your opponent?

Each ship has a different gameplay, and between each extremes you will find more balanced ones for those who want to be careful.

Overclock your ship:

You found your favorite but it has some weaknesses? Or you want to make a specific thing stronger?
Use chipsets to boost a specific statistic of your ship, you can use up to 3 different chipsets at the same time to get your secret sauce.

Musical universe

All the game is rythmed by the original creations of LukHash.
He defines his music as a “fusion of the numeric 8 bits sounds combined to a sophisticated electronic music, with modern sounds, and an aesthetic from the 80’s”.
Discover one of his last album “Better Than Reality” in Pongarena.

Want to support the composer? You can buy the album on our Steam page.
