Thanks JCho133! It genuinely was one of the most appealing/addictive games we could think of as soon as we saw it last year, so we are really happy it is about to release! Online multiplayer has been a hot topic of discussion with the developer Ludomotion - if anyone can do it those guys can! Nothing confirmed yet but we will keep you posted. Ludomotion will be on here later to answer questions and give opinion so feel free to ask anything about the game and they will do their best to answer!

Hi, let me first introduce myself: I'm Stephan van der Feest, lead Content & AI engineer of Ludomotion. For Bezircle, I did the music and sound effects, AI programming, and a lot of mobile-related development. This next to being involved in the game design as we all are to some degree. (Oh, and I edited the trailer, too)

Thank you very much, we've spent much of our time, energy, and frankly, souls on it
We actually still enjoy playing it a lot ourselves

It's absolutely on our list of features we're going to add in a future version.
Also, we definitely have the technology and the knowledge to implement it. Whether it will eventually be in there, depends on a lot of factors of course, not the least of which will be how well it is embraced by the community

Absolutely!
Our main leaderboard game mode, Bezircus, will infinitely generate new arena's, where you score points toward a total as long as you keep winning.
In fact, our advanced procedural content generation techniques, guarantee that every arena will be very much different, but always balanced and fun.

The dynamic playing fields seem like they really keep things interesting! I love the sound effects too

What happens if your guy is on an orb that explodes? Do you lose or do you get stunned and put on the nearest orb?

Thanks for your enhtusiastic response JCHo133! The game is releasing worldwide in less than a day and we look forward to receiveing similar great responses.
My name is Javier Sancho and I'm a colleague of Stephan (Ghuyahil) at Ludomotion as the game's producer.

To answer your question: when your character (we call them Zirclings) is on an orb that explodes, the character gets blown up and you lose the match and all the orbs you captured. You'll have to tread carefully in explosive arenas and make sure you get away from exploding orbs. Or for a meaner tactic, you can try to trick your adversary to get on an exploding orb. He'll lose all his captured orbs ready for you to take back.

Thank you! We still keep playing it for fun ourselves, even after two years of working on it

You lose.
If your Zircling is knocked out, it will become a larva, that other people can feed on. That way, you can still have a (very) small influence on the game when you've already lost.
