What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have been working on Super Powered Battle Friends since early 2015. The core development team comes from a background of iterative development cycles and is used to having early input from players while projects are in development. We have been to a handful of conventions and we have received tons of positive feedback from our testers and con-goers but the biggest question is when can they get their hands on it? We decided as a team that not only would this benefit our players who don't want to wait until the full release but it would also benefit SPBF as a whole. Receiving feedback for hitbox properties, frame data and all round bugs and suggestions is what keeps projects like this one alive and well. This also allows us to be transparent with our development and to let our community have a louder voice.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate that Super Powered Battle Friends will remain in Early Access for 1-2 years to complete the full release with all of the planned content.”

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

“For the full release we'd like to be able to include a few key features:

  • Dedicated Servers for Ranked Matchmaking.
  • Steam Workshop for custom characters, stages, and gamemodes.
  • Custom colour palettes for player customization. Done!
  • Profiles for custom keybinds per profile to go with the custom colour palettes.
  • A full suite of multiplayer modes that will include shared and splitscreen play.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version has our first 4 Characters with more being added during Early Access, 5 stages and the default Free-For-All mode. It is best to join our discord community to stay informed about the current state of SPBF.”

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

“We will raise the price after full release.”

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

“All of the community feedback we receive is important to us and to SPBF. For our players, your feedback will play an integral part in the development process. Our community is welcome to contribute by engaging in discussions with us, for example by commenting on difficulty of the AI or simply reporting bugs and crashes. You can also feel free to send us any suggestions you would like to see in the future version of the game and we will seriously discuss it among the team. If you'd like to be involved with our community and development head on over to our Discord channel! You can find links to our Discord on our website.”
