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 players enjoy this early version! We love the 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.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Alpha! We're happy to see more players joining in multiplayer battles and we are working hard to launch the beta this summer and release it in 2014.”

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

“The Premium version which gives instant access to all vehicle parts will be more expensive, so getting involved early is definitely an advantage. We will also introduce a new Basic version which will give more storage of vehicle parts. This version will be cheaper than the Premium version. We have no plans to add micro-transactions.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“As a small indie studio, we are grateful for all support and invite everyone to take part in the development via the Steam community. Many suggestions and bug fixes from you have already been implemented and more is on the way!

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

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.

Early Access Review
This game is perhaps THE most pay-to-win I have ever seen. Here's what free players get: the 6 most basic hulls, turrets, and propulsion; as well as a small fraction of the total weapons that the people who paid $10 for the Premium get. There is no matchmaking to speak of, and there is no way to tell who has Premium and who doesn't, therefore, there is no way to tell who has an almost unfair advantage over you. When I played my first match, it was fun enough where I was going to reccommend it to my friends. But then I played another match, where EVERYONE had Premium, and EVERYONE had been playing for tens, even hundreds of hours. And even if it wern't for these glaring issues, there's still the problem of text in the item descriptions missing letters and numbers, meaning you can barely decide out of the pitiful selection to put on your tank. In other words; Good idea gone horribly, horribly wrong.

the free to play is not really worth the effort, if you want to do anything at all you'll have to cough up some money

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. :-)
