What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“With Hatchball we’re aiming to combine two awesome things that have not been brought together before: playing pinball and raising cute baby animals. Both of these things are already fun in the game, but in order to perfect the interplay of each aspect we need feedback!

Based on that feedback, it’s possible that we will need to make significant adjustments to how certain systems work, the balance of progression, and so on. We feel that Early Access is the right place for the game while the possibility of substantial changes is still possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to open the game for Early Access players in early 2020, and will release the full game sometime after that. We'll update you when we know more!”

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

“Aside from the potential balance and system adjustments mentioned above, we are planning to add more tables, hatchlings, and special powers to the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We currently have one table with a number of combos to discover and master, more than five hatchlings with a variety of special powers, and the core game experience of playing pinball to earn new hatchlings, then nurturing them to boost their powers.”

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

“The game will be free to play and will remain so. But Early Access players will get free extra credits and bonuses as our way of saying thanks for trying out the game early, so if you’re interested now is the time to get stuck in!”

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

“We’re keen to get feedback from players on every aspect of the game, from the pinball experience to making your hatchlings as cute as possible! As we said before, we are also going to be very focused on making sure that both sides of the game support each other and interact in exciting ways!”

About This Game

Hatchball is more than just a digital pinball game, taking place in a wild forest filled with life and magical energy. Instead of playing with regular silver balls, this game is played with eggs! The goal of the game is to guide these eggs to your Hatchery, where they will be able to hatch into adorable creatures. Given love and care they will become powerful allies… and your best friends! Have you already come up with a name for your first Hatchling?

The game begins with an egg being launched into the pinball forest. Your goal is to play this magical game to the best of your powers, and deliver the egg to your Hatchery. Don't forget to collect a ton of points along the way, to help nurture your creatures!

Adorable Hatchlings!



Once they're born, your new Hatchling friends will help you however they can, whether through magical power or practical prowess. Choose which ones you want to take with you for each new shot at a table, and use their abilities to boost your high score. Some of them can even open up new areas of the table to explore!

Hatchlings can be creatures that come from eggs in real life, like reptiles and birds, but they could also be creatures that in the real world would not, like mammals. They might even be for a fantasy creature… will you be able to hatch a legendary egg?

Magical Pinball



Use your pinball skills to get your new eggs to the Hatchery and earn the points you'll need to care for them. The magical forest has everything you would expect from a real pinball table. Face different challenges when the sun sets and darkness creeps in.

  • Summon a butterfly coven by hitting blooming flowers
  • Earn the respect of the moles and they might reward you
  • When night falls, share the magic of the fireflies
  • Ride the log chute to the enchanted plateau
  • Much more!

The forest is generous and wants you to succeed in becoming the most powerful pinball wizard you can be. But even the magic of the forest has limits - if you lose an egg too many times, it's gone for good!

Come and visit the magical forest next Spring. We will be giving out a set of special eggs to those who join us in release week, so don't forget to add us to your wishlist!
