Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We need to test the online matchmaking, balance characters, and add more maps before we can call it a complete game. We need more feedback to do those things, so we’re doing Early Access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Hopefully 6 months at most.”

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

“We will be adding more maps, want to get character balance in a good spot before the full release, and take care of any bugs that are discovered. We will be making some tweaks to visual effects as well.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“You can expect a fully playable game. Many bugs have been ironed out, and the mechanics have been polished a lot. The networked multiplayer runs smoothly for us and everyone we’ve tested with, but we’ll see what bugs Early Access uncovers. The online matchmaking is sure to have issues at the start, as we lack the resources to stress test it.”

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

“Nope.”

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

“Jared likes to interact with people on Twitter (@PixelvexDev), and you can talk to us on the Steam forums. We have a subreddit, r/metagalacticblitz, that we will be hanging out in. Hit us up to tell us about bugs, thoughts of balance, and content/features you’d like to see in the future. All of these things will be heavily community-influenced, if you guys make sure to give us your feedback.”

Dev Plan Next Week

Just to keep everyone in the loop, this week we've been doing some marketing work, and early next week there will be a development plan posted. This will contain a rough timeline for what we want to get done during early access, and a tentative full release date.

The dates could end up changing, but I'd like to be transparent about what we want to accomplish, and when. Stay tuned!

About This Game


Metagalactic Blitz gives you that euphoric feeling of hurling dodgeballs, but adds the sci-fi weapons you wish you had in gym class! Powershot, reflect, dash, and blast your way to the top in this competitive arena game.




  • Deep dodgeball mechanics that encourage strategic gameplay
  • 9+ characters with entirely different playstyles
  • 1v1 online multiplayer
  • Online ranked matchmaking
  • 1-4 player local multiplayer
  • Original soundtrack by 8 Bit Cypher





Zomborg is a slow bruiser, excelling at guarding the middle and soaking up damage.


Lt. Justice has fantastic tools for overwhelming, constantly hurling his boomerang shield and backing you into a gravity bomb to set up for a kill.


Maxameleon gains the advantage slowly but surely. He can negate attacks while outliving his opponent as they weaken from his poison.


To master Zandra, perfect spacing is a must. The tip of her sword is especially deadly; swift and accurate combos allow Zandra to dominate the arena.

Discover more characters in game.



Metagalactic Blitz is a top-down physics based fighting game. Everyone shares some main dodgeball mechanics (throwing, dashing, and reflecting) and each character also has 3 powerful abilities unique to them.

Throwing


Dashing/Catching


Reflecting


Zomborg will be our example for abilities. He's a slow bruiser with an arm cannon. If his opponent is close, he can fire a shotgun to rack up damage.


Or, he can combo with his magnet pull for a point blank shotgun.


He can use these tools to zone the other player, by guarding the dodgeballs to gain the advantage.


If you didn't catch that, abilities require 1 power to use, which is gained from picking up a dodgeball. The balls are central to offense.

If his opponent is good at staying out of range, Zomborg can utilize his laser that charges passively over time to root them out.


As more damage is dealt, players are knocked back farther. Knocking them off the stage will eliminate them.
