What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We would like to involve the playerbase in the growth of the game, make decisions regarding to demographics and the suggestions of the playerbase.

Also due to limitations, additional features like dedicated server support will only be added after building a community to observe the location info and the activity of the userbase to best utilize our finances for the allocation of sufficient servers worldwide. This is to ensure that:

- Regions with higher player base has access to servers with the ability to handle the amount of players
- Regions with lower player base do not spend a lot of time in the matchmaking queue
- The overall experience is maximized

Early access will also allow us to watch the balancing of the game by creating scenarios which we cannot always replicate in our studios.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our plans are to keep it relatively short, an estimated 6 months period. The game will reach its full release as soon as the checklist for the full release is complete.”

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

“The early access version of the game includes:
- Main game mode (The game mode that will be used for ranked games)
- One map
- Login&Matchmaking Servers
- Lobby games
- Party system
- Various cosmetic items

The full version of the game will include the following as an addition to the release version
- Progression system
- 2 additional main game mode maps
- 3 custom game maps
- Dedicated servers for main game mode
- Custom games that play differently
- Splitscreen support
- Additional cosmetic items that grant challenges in forms of item upgrades
- Achievements
- Leaderboards”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access version of the game includes:
- Main game mode: The game mode that will be adjusted but overall will stay the same in terms of rules. 4v4 capture the point style game mode.
- One map: Playroom
- Login&Matchmaking Servers: Servers that are hosted by ourselves that handle matchmaking and authentication
- Lobby games: Players can currently invite friends up to 8 people and play the game together
- Party system: Players can invite friends to play together in matchmaking mode
- Various cosmetic items: Players can customize their marbles in various ways.”

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

“The pricing of the game will double upon the end of the early access.”

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

“This item is the most important for us given more players for us equate to more opinions and these opinions are what will make Marble Combat thrive further. We will be sticking to weekly or bi-weekly updates and watch the integrity and the balancing of the game and ensure that the game on each update gets better and not worse. We need the power of the community to judge what is the best step to take further at any given moment.

We are gathering our community at our discord servers:
https://discord.gg/Ts9rEpE
which people are welcome whether or not they purchased the game or played the demo. You can ask any questions there and we will be glad to reply.

And we are occasionally streaming the development of the game on Twitch:

About This Game




Marble combat is a physics based multiplayer game for 2 - 8 people. Players compete as magical marbles racing and fighting to dominate capture points and collect power ups. Spin, velocity, bounce, and torque control the players movement with a little added air control for big jumps and falls.

Compete in teams of 4v4 to score points over three rounds. Points are scored through dominating a single capture zone per round with each zone providing a unique challenge to the teams.
Players can pick up to 4 abilities which can be used to throw opponents, save allies or beat enemies out of the capture zone. Picking the right combination of abilities with your team can be the difference between victory and defeat.

The environment features different types of interactive and animated elements that can launch, carry, fire, bounce your marble for better or for worse.
Learn the environment through single player time attack challenges .

The rough road map for Marble Combat will be to go to Steam Early Access with the main map and game mode. Periodically new maps, powers, cosmetics and other game modes will be added throughout early access.

Overall Marble Combat aims to offer a competitive multiplayer with a focus on slapstick comedy and retro nostalgia.
