Description

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. Every player can pick a combination of four abilities which can hinder enemies, boost allies or improve ball control.

History

Marble Combat started out as a small multiplayer demo pitched internally to the phantom 8 team.

It was pretty fun and playable at an early stage and the team wanted to work on something a light hearted and funny without a long development cycle.

The concept provided a reasonable scope for what a small team could produce and would be easy to test with and take on feedback from anyone who wants to get involved.

At first it was just supposed to be a ball rolling game and there were now ideas for setting. But when we fleshed out some of the powers and level design options, trying a real life marble setting seemed perfect. The art style was at first a full on 1950's-60's retro feel but as we wanted to get in more and more toys and references from our childhood it ended up containing themes from various eras.

We had a lot of ideas for where to base the arena (initially a schoolyard), but eventually settled on a kids playroom for the initial map. This was because we could add as much detail as we liked with tonnes of inspiration from the toys we used to have as kids. We didn't initially plan for the map to be this detailed and were expecting to have slightly smaller sparser arenas. As the game developed we felt putting more time into one very detailed map was better as there was room for exploration and extra depth with the powerup mechanics. We have had a tonne of ideas for where we could go with this map and other game modes and we'd like to squeeze as much in as possible. We decided to go Free to play so that we could get the game out early and just keep cramming in more content as we go.
