What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have decided to release in Early Access as it gives us a chance to have the community help us polish what we currently have so it is enjoyed by a wide range of people. It also gives the community a chance to help decide what extra content ends up in the final version and how the game plays.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect Early Access to last roughly 6 months.”

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

“Over the course of Podium Bash being in Early Access we plan on adding a wide variety of content such as:
- New bats
- New shields
- New cannon skins with custom balls
- New game modes
- VR AI
- VR difficulties”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Podium Bash currently has 1 playable game mode with online and offline leaderboards, 9 unique bats, 9 unique shields, 5 unique cannon skins.”

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

“The price of the game will be increased upon release of the full version to account for the added content but will not change while in Early Access.”

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

“We hope the community will aid us designing and developing new game modes, as well as balancing the current one. We also hope they will help design new weapons and cannon skins for the game.”

A Quick Update - Update 8 - April 8th

Hey everyone, Corrie here, Creative Director at Feisty Crab Studios.

You're probably wondering where we've been for the past few months, I thought now was a good time to give you all an update to let you know we're still working on the game.

For those that don't know, we're currently a 2 man team. Due to financial trouble, we've both had to take full time jobs so we can continue to exist and work on the game. This has put development on the back burner a bit; but we still are working on ways to improve gameplay.

This is our first release on Steam, and our first game that isn't a POC or micro game. We've encountered teething problems as can be expected, but we're constantly learning from this experience. We're thankful for those that have bought the game and supported us. We hope we can deliver a game you constantly return to.

If you have any suggestions on how to make the game more enjoyable, please do let us know. Sometimes its hard for us as developers to see the game as an end user so we'd love any and all feedback.

Thanks again for all the support, we'll have a new update for you soon. Follow us on twitter to see more casual updates

NEW GAMEMODE! - Update 7 - January 15th

Hi all,

We hope you all had a good holiday and great New Years!

This is another exciting content update for Podium Bash that adds a new gamemode that mixes up the way you play!

The new gamemode is called Standard Reverse, and much like its name suggest it is similar to the Standard gamemode but with the players roles reversed. The VR player is stood on top of a podium with a mounted turret and has 90 seconds to destroy all of the carts targets. There can be between 1 and 4 carts controlled with by either human player or AI; The carts have to move around and avoid having there targets destroyed by the VR player. If they can last 90 seconds without all there targets being destroy they win, if not the VR player wins!

Aside from the new gamemode this update also updates the control screen to have controls for all gamemodes.

About This Game

Podium Bash is an extremely fun local multiplayer VR game! In the standard gamemode one player in VR stands atop a podium armed with a bat and shield tasked with staying on top for as long as they can. Up to four players using controllers are tasked with knocking the VR player off the podium by shooting cannons at the VR player.

In the Standard Reverse gamemode the VR player is stood on top of a podium with a mounted turret and has 90 seconds to destroy all of the carts targets. There can be between 1 and 4 carts controlled by either human players or AI; The carts have to move around and avoid having there targets destroyed by the VR player. If they can last 90 seconds without all there targets being destroy they win, if not the VR player wins!

In the Cannon Practice gamemode between one and four players take control of cannons and have to get as many points as they can in 90 seconds. To get points you have to shoots and successfully hit targets with targets further away being worth more points. This gamemode is not intended to be played with a VR player as it is design to help cannon players hone their skills.

In the Bat Practice gamemode there is only the VR player and a single AI cannon that auto fires balls at them.
