Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

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.”

Update 4 Now Live

Our next update is here and this time it's a smaller release that's focussed on addressing a number of the niggles that you guys have raised so far! As always we are striving to make things as enjoyable as possible so we encourage you to provide feedback and let us know what you'd like to see in Cricket Club! If you're enjoying Cricket Club please also consider dropping us a review and help us get the game into the hands of more players!

Improved Batting Physics
Much more accurate collision detection between bat and ball and an improved hotspot marker should help with the strokeplay. We've also refined the advantages you get for middling the ball and updated the ball bounce physics.

New Scoreboard
We've replaced our ugly floating scoreboard with a slightly prettier floating scoreboard. The scoreboard will also show you a ball-by-ball report of the current over as well as your current highscore for the current match type so you've always got a target to aim for.

Bowling & Fielding
  • Most bowlers have had their pitch maps adjusted. The bowlers in club mode should be a little friendlier now.
  • Offside wides will now be correctly called by the umpire
  • Fielders will no longer catch you out off balls that have just about hit the turf
  • The fielding team should be slightly more intelligent about deciding which fielder goes for the ball
  • Added some more legspin friendly field settings

Bugs Squashed
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes no fielder would collect the ball (especially wide balls to the left-handed batsmen that spun past the keeper)
  • Fixed a bug where the ball would sometimes get stuck beneath a fielder and get run out to the boundary
  • Fixed a bug where hitting the ball 17 million miles into the air could bypass our boundary fences
  • Fixed a bug that allowed you to hit your wickets before the bowler bowled and then be unable to get out bowled on the following ball
  • Fixed a bug where the umpire would not return to his position after getting knocked by a fielder

Update 3 Now Live!

We're really excited to announce our latest update is here! We have focussed on as many of the things that you have been asking for as we were able to get to this update. Here are the patch notes. We hope you enjoy and please do let us know how you're getting on with Cricket Club!

Leaderboard Overhaul
  • There are now new leaderboards for both individual and team scores in each game mode across both Club and Test level
  • The leaderboards will now display in-game. They are shown at the end of the match and you can also view up-to-date boards at any time by pressing the menu button.
  • Posting of scores is now automatic (as long as you have entered a player name)
  • You can still manually post your score at the end of an innings if you haven't set your player name yet
  • You can now always see your own leaderboard rank even if you aren't in the top 10

Some New Faces Into The Bowling Attack!
Ok, technically they all have the same face, but we gave them different coloured hair so you can tell them apart!

Introducing:
R. Collinge - Left arm fast-medium. Bowls a full nagging line on the off stump. Patiently wait for some width outside off or dispatch him back over his head?
C. Grimmett - Right arm legspin. Drifts it in then rips it past the outside edge. Slog sweep anyone?

New Fielder Behaviours
  • Fielders will now leap and dive towards balls that are tantalisingly out-of-reach
  • The keeper no longer has super human reflexes when catching balls that have taken a large deflection off the bat
  • Improved the way fielders attack and orient themselves towards the ball
  • Fixed various bugs with the new moving fielders introduced last update - including removing their ability to summon inhuman bursts of speed!

Trophies Are Up For Grabs!
We're introducing the first of the trophies that you will be able to win to start decking out your shed.

Individual High Score Trophy
  • Bronze - 50+ Runs
  • Silver - 75+ Runs
  • Gold - 100+ Runs

Team High Score Trophy
  • Bronze - 100+ Runs
  • Silver - 200+ Runs
  • Gold - 300+ Runs

Settings & Controls
  • There is an updated settings menu where you'll be able to find new settings to tinker with
  • You can now adjust the height that the controller attaches to the bat handle to make it more comfortable for players of different heights. You'll find the option in the settings menu.
  • The trigger button no longer pauses the game. You can press the menu button to pause and view the leaderboards. The button is automatically blocked during delivery so you won't accidentally bump it while swinging!
  • An icon now appears above the bowlers head to show where you need to look to trigger the next ball. You can toggle this off in the settings menu.

Taking Centre
You can now rearrange the position and orientation of the pitch to suit your own room setup. You do this in the game by 'taking centre'. When you're out in the middle stand at the location in your room you would like to be the centre of the pitch, and look in the direction you would like the pitch to run in. Now touch the bat to the ground and hold down the trigger button until the icon appears. Your preferences are automatically saved so you only need to set this up once.

Along with the above we have continued to improve the physics simulation and squashed a number of bugs with this update.

See you on the leaderboards!
