At the moment the game is only local multiplayer. We’re working hard on training virtual opponents with a system of deep learning, using punishment and reward. That way the virtual agents can find out for themselves what the best way of playing is. They’ve soon started to understand by themselves that it’s a good idea to run toward a goal – it’s a start!
The game that we’ve made for the “Blij met een Ei” organisation is a permanent installation in Corpus Museum, but you can also admire it on national television this weekend: this Sunday, June 23, 17.30, in “Nederland Proeft” on RTL 4. There are also some other Corpus exhibits made by Virtual Play being shown – nice to see!
Today we had a first for Hatchball: we tested the game on a physical table! The table, also manufactured by Virtual Play, has the layout and controls of a traditional pinball table, but is displayed on a built-in screen. We’ve done these playtests as usual at the Dutch Game garden networking lunch. We got a lot of positive feedback, and we’ll be developing Hatchball more in the coming period.
For the September 2019 – January 2020 period Virtual Play is looking for talented interns once again, to help with Hatchball, Dules, Soccer Nations, and other projects. We will at least have room for game developers (programmeurs), preferably at Bachelor-studies skill level. Mail to email@example.com

The Fear Factory is getting a lot of visitors, and positive reception in the media so far! “The Fear Factory is both completely absurd, and disturbingly close to reality.” Check the Fear Factory website for bookings. Come and admire our installation too!
