What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Balloonatics is at the perfect stage for an Early Access release. We have a solid game with multiplayer support for up to 6 players, and solo challenges for people to test their skills. Early access will allow us to get immediate feedback on the mechanics, balance, and fun of the game before we expand with larger matches, more challenges, and more game modes.

We have plans to introduce more weapons and levels, with a few already in development, and we’re hoping that community feedback will help spark some great ideas.

With Balloonatics, we want VR and non-VR players to be able to play together without either having any significant advantage or disadvantage. We’ve worked hard on balancing the game mechanics to achieve this (special thanks to our beta testers!), but we need feedback from the larger community that early access can provide.

With the game ready to play today, we are eager to get Balloonatics in players hands now while we continue to make improvements and work towards a full release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to remain in early access for approximately one year while we complete the features and assets we feel are needed for a full release.”

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

Features and Content at Full Release
(These may change as we receive community feedback, and will be released throughout early access. We will also continue to add to the game after full release)
  • 6 Characters
  • 4 Arenas
  • Lots of new weapons
  • Player stats
  • Achievements
  • Larger multiplayer matches
  • Custom multiplayer matches
  • Full controller support
  • New multiplayer game modes (we have a few in mind, but we want player feedback).

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core of Balloonatics is already here. You can play 6 single player challenges and you can play multiplayer matches of 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 and up to 6 player Free For All.

We currently have 6 characters and 3 arenas with a variety of weapons to suit different play styles and many new weapons in testing that will be released shortly.

There are leaderboards challenges.”

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

“We feel the current price suits the features of content of the game in early access. We may consider raising the price as we expand the game or at the time of release, but have no specific plans at this time.”

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

“We are hoping to receive a lot of constructive feedback and ideas from users that will shape the development of the game. We have a lot of ideas, but we know you do too! Changes and new features that we plan will be posted to gather Community feedback.

Balloonatics has evolved thanks to the support we’ve received from friends and early beta testers, and we expect to see continued improvements with feedback from the larger Community.”
