Why Early Access?
“Super High Ball is developed by only one passionate guy, on his free time. It is my first game, and the Early Access is a way for me to get feedback on what I have been working on since the last 5 years.
This will help me to make progress in the rest of the development, adjusting what the game is, and defining what the game will be.
The community feedback will help to work on the right things moving forward.”
Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
“I will be working on Super High Ball until it reaches a state I am happy with. I already know what I will not be adding to the game and what I will add.
If the community request some features, I will, of course, think about it and this might extend the period of Early Access.
As for now, I am planning to leave Early Access in the first quarter of 2021.”
How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
“Many elements of this Early Access are due to change, music, UI/UX or Sound Effects for example.
I am currently seeking what players think about the game, I will re-work some levels design and balance the difficulty (based on some play-test, it comes out that the game is challenging, this is what I wanted, but I need more opinions on this).
What will be changed/added through the updates:
• Work on UI/UX.
• More levels (I am planning to add a hard mode to each level).
• More customization.
• Localization for various languages.
• Accessibility settings.
What might be added:
• New game modes.”
What is the current state of the Early Access version?
“I have reached a point where the game is ready to be played, it is "hopefully" fun, and it does reflect what I wanted Super High Ball to be. Saying that the game has not been tested on a lot of configuration, so this version might come with glitches, bugs or crashes.
What is the state of Super High Ball:
• Fun and challenging gameplay (yeah!).
• 5 playable Worlds ( 3 Tutorials and 20 Levels).
• Each Worlds comes with new gameplay mechanics.
• Each level comes with 3 challenges.
• Ball customization (Change Color, Material and Trail).
• A set of game customization and settings.
• Save game system.
• Online Leaderboard to compete with friends or the rest of the world.”
Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
“Yes, I do expect the price of the full game to increase, as it will contain much more content.”
How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?
"The community will be able to give feedback and interact with me using a discord channel; the Twitter account is currently the best way to interact with me and get information about upcoming updates and announcements.
The community could help on giving feedback on the game itself, the technical issues, and share any ideas."
