Publisher Kalypso Media and developer Torus Games have released the first developer diary for Matchpoint – Tennis Championships, which will be released in spring 2022. That's not all: You can try the game as part of the Steam Next Festival that is currently running.
The first video not only contains new details on motion capture, ball physics, rally tactics and working with a former world number one, but also brand new insights into the development of the authentic tennis simulation. Producer Kevin McIntosh and Game Designer Dave McIntosh will discuss the process of developing a "tennis game for tennis fans by real tennis players."
