What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are a small indie team of five people and Early Access enables us to fully test Gear Up while letting you enjoy this early version! We love your feedback, testing, fresh ideas and help in spreading the word we are getting from you, ultimately allowing us to create a better game!”

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“Gear Up will remain in Early Access until the game is ready for release. We expect this to happen during 2014.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The complete version will feature a full, stable build running on Windows, Mac and Linux, check out our game description further below!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Beta! We're happy to see more players joining in multiplayer battles and we are working hard to fix bugs and release Gear Up in 2014!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Buying the game right now is definitely an advantage as the prices will increase when the game is released. We plan to price the final version at $9.99 for Basic and $19.99 for Premium. We have no plans to add micro-transactions, so you'll get the full game and instant vehicle parts if you buy the premium version now!”

About the Game

Gear Up is a multiplayer game where you build customized tanks and battle online opponents in deathmatch, team deathmatch and conquest. Crawl the arena in devious spider legs, escape with your trusty jetpack or serve your opponents a healthy dose of proximity mines as you design with over one million different combinations. If you design 10 new tanks every day, you will still have new combinations to try in the next 250 years.

  • Master the art of propulsion – Will you go for the rumbling caterpillar tracks, swoop across the arena using wind turbines or let loose the smell of burning rubber with go-kart tires?
  • Adapt your arsenal of weaponry – Do you prefer the cold steel of the minigun or the heartwarming sensation of the flamethrower? Will you fall for the old world charm of a thundering bronze cannon or does the electric zapping of the tesla generator tickle your mind?
  • Wage war your way – Regardless if you deploy the body of a Russian submarine, blend into the background with stealth generators or love giving your opponents the dry taste of gunpowder with a barrage of missiles – the choice is yours to make.

Features

  • Battle up to 16 players online
  • Play Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Conquest
  • Massive customization with over one million different combinations of parts

Create

We will ship an editor after Gear Up has been released. In the editor you can build or modify levels, vehicle parts, game modes or any other game content. Since we are a very small independent team we are glad to have you involved in the development process. Through the developer forums on Steam you can help us with your ideas on how to improve the game and make it even more fun!

Early Access Review
Amazing game for a something that is only just in alpha. The customization in this game is fantastic but the only thing I would say is that the weapons and turrets ect should all be more balanced out because at the moment you could have four extremely overpowered guns on the same tank or two turrets with four side weapons attached. A good way to get around this would be to make certain weapons more powerful if you only have one weapon or do the opposite by decreasing the damage of the weapons if you have about three of turrets. Also, some of the weapons are much more powerful than other so I would recommend give the weapons there own pros and cons like in TF2 for example but the game is still in alpha anyway so it will probably get more balanced out later. A few bugs and glitches like when you try to snipe with bug legs the camara spazzes out but like I said before, the game is still in alpha and the bugs will probably get fixed.Overall I think that this game is fantastic and I highly recommend that you download it. :-)

This game combines great "cartoon-ish" graphics (which enhances the game experiences) with incredible gameplay. I would recommend this game to everyone because it is also easy to play yet fun.

The only problem is that it lacks players. Sometimes, the gameroom is actually empty. It doesn't have any servers available at times!

So I repeat, I recommend this game to everyone and people would love it!

PS. Please help spread the word about this game! :)

It's actually really good.
The F2P aspect is all right, you can buy infinite backpack slots by using $5 or you can earn them with EXP.
Weapons and parts only take like 2 matches to grind.
Game's fun, 'nuff said.

Early Access Review
This game is really nice for an Early access! let me write down what i like and dont like about the game and also what i want to see in the game

Like
- Graphics (the cartoony style is so much fitting to its game)
- Gameplay (gameplay reminds me of an old game Recoil)
- Maps (the maps are well designed, but i would like to see editor that will have workshop in it)
- Tank costumization (now thats the thing i would like to talk about. tank costumization is the main thing in the game. the only thing i would like in Tank costumization is that you can change colors on the stripes or add costum decals like in game Homeworld 2)

Disslike
- Not to much players to play with (the game feels empty without any players to play on)
- Game is laggy even the specs matches the game (the game should be optimalised so i can play it)

What i would like to see
- Capture the flag (i would like to see capture the flag and it would be interesting to see tanks fighting over 2 flags)
- Map editor (i imagine the map editor to work like in trackmania. also it would be nice if it will have steam workshop!)
- More Graphic options (Would be nice if Graphic options would be advanced like Sauerbraten's graphic options)
- Mouse sensitivity (this is also a thing i would like to have in the game but i heard that they are working on this)
- More tank Costumization (i would like if the developers would make the Costumization more advanced)

i give this game 8/10. its a great Tank-like game but it still needs some work. im still gonna support it by buying premium. also the game is for free! so if you want to try it then you can download it right now!
