Graveball is a multiplayer game in which teams of goblins play an intense game of rugby while striking each other around the head and chest area with large clubs. It is a very serious game. It's also the world's greatest graveyard-themed, goblin based combat sports game.

Updated Gameplay Trailer

News


In celebration of heading to PAX South, Goin' Yumbo has created a new gameplay trailer for Graveball. Additional dynamic lights have been added as well as brand new particle effects and a ghostly audience! The trailer also shows off a new scoring mechanic, goal rings!

Every 30 seconds, a ring spawns out of the ground over each endzone. After 5 seconds, the ring starts to shrink. If your team is able to throw (or dunk) the skull through the ring before it disappears, you are awarded 2 points.

Check out the video and keep an eye out for release in March!

Hey, I love your game but it shows up on steam as "spacewar". And I know many cracked games show up under that name. Is it possible steam would think it's malicious?

Spacewar is the Steam test app. I haven't gone through the Greenlight process yet so I don't have my own app ID. I'm hoping to do that soon. They shouldn't find it malicious as it is the app ID that all developers use until they get through Greenlight. If you search, there are thousands of "Spacewar" servers running as developers work on their apps.

Hey, thanks for responding. What about people who aren't developers? Maybe you know someone you could ask? Hopefully I'm just paranoid but you can never be too careful :)

I'll ask Valve about it and let you know. I'm really hoping to start the greenlight process soon so if you aren't comfortable with the test app ID, I should have my own as soon as I get through that.

Awesome, thanks. This will blast trough greenlight for sure. By the way are you planning on adding dx10 support, because some of my friends have old cards?

I think with unreal I can build it to support dx 10 so that shouldn't be a problem. My target specs are super low. My dev machine is almost 6 years old and I play kn Max settings.

Hey, it's me again. Maybe steam has replied you about the spacewar thing?

Nothing from them yet. I'm going to be kicking off my Greenlight campaign shortly so you probably won't have to wait too long.
