What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're excited! We want you to be as excited as we are. So, we need to get you playing Super Hockey Ball!

We want you to experience our intuitive locomotion system and our dynamic hockey stick. We need your feedback to help us design better systems and improve gameplay. Help us make the best game for you!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Super Hockey Ball will remain in Early Access while we make it more awesome! We intend to implement new features (tutorials, game modes, levels, etc) and improve upon the existing game (updated artwork, music, etc).

Estimated final release: Q2 2019”

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

“Now that the basic features are in place, we plan to extend the depth of the game. That means more levels! It means more challenges and more variety! We dream of exemplary artwork. That means we'll continue to improve the way it looks, sounds, and feels. In short, Super Hockey Ball will only get better.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Super Hockey Ball features our innovative Targeted Locomotion, speed lines (to reduce nausea), and a dynamic hockey stick that responds to your environment. You can even feel the stick drag along the ground as you run!

Game types include shooting the ball and destroying targets, running through the neighborhood, and controlling the ball as you maneuver around cones.

You'll find options to suit all players, including:
  • Left/Right handed settings
  • Smooth turning and snap turning
  • A variety of locomotion methods (including Targeted Locomotion)
  • Stick color and length choices
  • Roomscale blocking (walking through your room won't let you walk through walls)
  • And many more features

Our design decisions are based around having fun, rather than realism. So, the ball is big and colorful. The world is cartoony and simple. And the interactions are engaging and easy. Because we believe that in VR players should be able to control the game with minimal effort.

More features will be available soon.”

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

“We do not anticipate changing the price after Early Access.”

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

“We make every effort to create the best game possible for our players. We will consider every critique and every suggestion. Community feedback is vital to Super Hockey Ball.

Questions, comments, suggestions, and thinly-veiled threats should be directed to our development staff via email, forums, or our Discord server.
