What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We love playing Cricket Club as it is, but acknowledge there are still a few gaps in it's
presentation and gameplay.
We are a small team with big ambitions for Cricket Club and we want to share where we are and get feedback so we can move forward to complete it to our satisfaction.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Cricket Club will be in early access for around 4-6 months”

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

“Ultimately we want to expand Cricket Clubs scope to include a strategic 2nd player mode.
This could be on a PC or tablet device. This would enable you to set fielding positions, select particular bowling attacks dependent on a batters strengths, and even select particular deliveries.

Also a big work on is fielder AI and animation, along with additional character development and a female team option.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Cricket Cub is a fully functioning cricket simulator with a good variety of bowlers delivering
satisfying, immersive cricket atmosphere.”

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

“We anticipate the full release of Cricket Club would have a price rise as new features are included.”

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

“This is our first game, so all feedback is appreciated. We are most interested in the thoughts of actual cricketers, and how the experience could be improved to closer match their time at the crease.”

  • Scorecard has been updated to highlight the striker and non-striker

Realistic physics, immersive sound, and fluid animation make you feel like you’re really there, while the beautiful visuals, gentle humour, and obvious love of the game deliver an unequalled VR cricket experience.

- Online global leader board
- Bat ‘Hot-spot’ instant feedback
