Description

A ball, two goals, and a couple of toasters : Welcome to Toasterball. Play against your friends in this unconventional tournament, where toasters are athletes and the laws of physics are merely a suggestion.

Toasterball is a party game (2-4 player), made to be played with friends on a good old couch. Because you play as toasters, you can naturally expect some slapstick physics and funny on-screen situations, but there is also a real learning curve, and enough gameplay variants and minigames to keep on surprising you.

The basics of Toasterball are quite easy to learn : simply press one of the buttons on your toaster for a short time, release it, and watch your toast fly through the air. The longer the press, the higher your toast will be launched. Each ejection also makes you jump, allowing you to hop around the field and push your opponent into tight situations. From there, any means are allowed to put the ball inside your opponent's goal!

Features

The game is currently in early access. All toasters, and the majority of the gameplay variants for the classic mode are already in the current version, only the minigames are still missing. A few bugs might also hide themselves in the game, but believe us, we're hunting for them every day!

Play a star athlete toaster

Choose a character from the best Toasterball athletes (15 unlockable toasters for the original release), each with a different visual, personality and background story. There are two major teams in Toasterball: The Burners (in red) and the Defrosters (in blue).

A classic mode, but never the same

The first mode you will find in the game is the classic mode. It is a caged match with a ball, two goals, and two teams of toasters fighting to be the first to score five goals.

After each goal, a random gameplay variant is chosen. A variant can bring small changes like a change in the size of the toasters, the number of balls and toasts, or can completely change the game with different goals, different ball physics, changes in the environment or random event like gusts of wind or explosions. With these variants, no two matches are alike in classic mode. The game already have more than 20 different variants.

Minigames

These minigames are not present in the current early-access version, but will be added in the future (between 3 and 5 mini-games for the official release). The idea behind these minigames is to put the toasters into new situations with different gameplay: at the beach, in space, on ice... same basic toaster mechanics, different rules.

History
