Congratulations! This is certainly exciting and I can already see a lot of positive changes just from the trailer. I hope that the smooth, responsive, fast-paced and fun gameplay of Marble Blast, as well as the creativity involved in both speedrunning and designing levels, are preserved in this game as authentically as possible. It's what made Marble Blast stand out among all the other knockoffs in the same genre.

Looking forward to getting a copy when it comes out.

Dude I'm so happy. I remember playing the original Marble Blast back in like 2005 when I was 6. This was like a dream lol, can't believe its really happening! And we only have to wait a month for it! I can't wait to play it for myself.
Thanks so much everyone involved! :D

When I see this on the list of the team members:

Alex Swanson
Art Director/Level Designer

Matan Weissman
Tuner/Gameplay Tester

it makes me feel good to know that a leader of a successful Marble Blast Mod and one of the original level developers of Marble Blast are working on what will be a fabulous marble game that stands out from all the other knockoffs.

EDIT: Do any of you realize that this is what Nardo actually meant? I mean, it seems like it's so!

Sounds great! I can't wait until it comes out!
But unfortunately, I don't own a Switch; I own a PS4.
Will this new game be on other platforms too (including the PS4), or is it going to be a Switch-exclusive?

And yes, we plan to release Marble It Up! on multiple platforms. We've been very focused on getting the Switch version done so we can launch the game proper, but I expect other versions will follow relatively quickly behind that.

Glad to hear that it'll be on other platforms. But, at least on the Switch, will it be physical or digital?
The GameSpot article says the game has 40 levels. Will the levels be long enough, or is the game going to be short?

I think what excites me most about this game is that it really looks like the most logical graphical evolution the game could make while still keeping to the original art style. It's more modern, but still maintains it's arcade-y aesthetic.

Loving the new Time Travel mechanic where they slow down time instead of stopping it completely. They retain their value without completely wrecking levels for speedrunning. At last, no more great levels reduced to a fast TT catch!

I do really hope you keep in tact what made Marble Blast so special in a swarm of mediocre ball-rolling games - namely, the tight physics and the customization. Custom level support please?

I'm very happy and very excited about this. Matan, I would really like to know how we can all go about supporting this game. I mean, I will definitely buy it, but as for promoting it and/or purchasing merchandise, what can I do?

Also, will Nintendo be promoting this in under its Nindies brand? You'd think for such a strong game launching first for Switch it would be a no-brainer.

No. Marble It Up is a premium (paid) game made by a different team using a different game engine.
