Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Robocraft has been built with a dedicated community of Robocrafters from the very beginning. The game's first release was in April 2013 and that buildhad no multiplayer and no combat. From that point to today, the game has grown exponentially to its full MMO state and whilst we still call it a 'Live Alpha' you will find it a very polished and fully featured experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Freejam are now plotting a path to full release with an aim to be out of Early Access by the end of 2016.”

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

“While users accounts will never be reset - so what you earn in game now you will always keep - the full release of Robocraft will contain a number of additional key core features, many more social features, Clans, more game modes, many more functional components and weapons, a tutorial and PVE mode and full game localisation into many different languages.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We call it 'Early Alpha' but we expect you to find it as polished and fully featured as most 'Beta' releases.”

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

“No, Robocraft will always be free-to-play and our prices won't change as a result of shifting from Early Access to a full release in future.”

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

“Freejam (the developer of Robocraft) has community in its blood. The word Freejam is a combination of 'free' and 'jam', where 'free' shows our dedication to keeping Robocraft always free, and 'jam' stands for jamming with our community to determine how our game continues to evolve. We like to think of Robocraft as a game that has been built from the ground up in collaboration with the community.”

Played it the other day and felt more board them when I started! The new loot system is another money grab and the balance of the game a screwed, I\'m going back to play WoT (World of Tanks, I know there\'s no creativity in building things, but its a tank MMO that doesn\'t fu%k with the core of the game). I very much enjoyed the earlier years of robo craft when crativity mixed with destruction well, but now its become as mundain and boring as CSGO and every other drop system and I just canèt support it...sorry dev\'s, you\'re game sucks, should have listen to someone like Juvar23 with .... 3000 hours?!?!?! Why the fu%k would you not listen to him?

I have played this game for a very long time, and I loved it. Ever since this game came out it was a fun and enjoyable experience and I would have recommend this game hands down to anyone who wanted to have a fun exciting experience in a completely original game. However, as of recent updates the game has only gone downhill. At first this game had mechanics that added variation to bots such as armour and a pilot\'s seat. These mechanics were the foundation of building and designing a robot to take into battle. Based on these attributes the player\'s robot would be assigned a teir 1-10. These teirs would determine the robots in which the player would go against. All of these features of the game were fine with very few problems, however the developers decided to \"change the game\" by removing every game mechanic that I listed. Along with this \"update\" they replaced the teir system with \"battle ratings\". This destroyed the player\'s ability to create teir-specific builds, and limited certain gamemodes to specific battle ratings. Eventually they fixed this update (somewhat) and the game was again playable. Until they added crates. What I immediately saw as a copy of Crossout, was the new basis of the game. This abomination of what I refuse to call an update truly ruined the game. It features a system that opposes the origanal game\'s purpose of building your own robot, and forces the player to build a robot centered around the dumb trash that appears in the rng crates that you gain at the end of each battle. Rip RP, the one mechaninc left. But in conclusion, the developers who feel that they are improving their game, can\'t create a fun game without taking away from the gameplay, or destroying game mechanics that dictate the true purpose and meaning of the game. I mean i\'m a level 103 not as high as possible, but personally its bull when I get a protonium crate and I get recon helicopter blades that I have no use for.

I used to love this game, but it has been steadily going downhill. Freejam has had so many opportunities to turn this game around, but they haven\'t. Instead they have gone the route of crates for good performance and the balance on the weaponry is completely screwed.

This WAS a good game. I am saddened to see what it has become.

They\'ve gone for the cash grab. There is now no reason to play at higher levels, and no way to get high tier stuff without paying money or spending ♥♥♥♥ tons of time grinding. Basically, instead of getting in game currency at the end of a match, you get a crate, which contains a bunch of random stuff. The stuff is almost never anything usefull, and even on the highest tier crate the chance of getting anything from the highest tier is tiny. You don\'t get better crates from higher tier matches, so no reason to play at high levels. You can\'t even buy the high tier stuff, because things still sell for 1/10th of the price. So, you have to grind for twenty ♥♥♥♥ing years to afford 1 good thing. It\'s terrible. I've loved this game, and they killed it. I am so dissapointed.

Yes, the original version of this game was better, before the crates came out, but that doesn\'t make this game a bad game in any way shape or form. I, as a newbie, love this game to death. I spent a lot of time on this game, and with it\'s almost endless capabilities, the battlefield is the sandbox of the mind!

Just going to rewrite this review with clearer statements on what really the game turned out to be.

First off, the infamous crate system recently added by Freejam that allows any player to have a fancy missile launcher, new players or old players, using the most terrible way to distribute those prizes, RNG. Since ANY player can get ANY block, weapon, cosmetic, or modules, a new player could just come in, play one game, get rusty crate and then get a missile launcher with possibly little to no effort. While the old veteran players are working their asses off to get to the top of the leaderboards only to find they got a crate full of crap. This isn't fun at all. The system needs to be completely overhauled, or reverted to a different system.

Progression is little to no where in this game, simply because just like stated above, anyone can get anything through the power of RNG. Wooooo. There is no incentive of even leveling up anymore because you don't gain anything through leveling up but just little bits of cpu, and really no point in getting up to the max level because you used to unlock a fancy megabot module that you can make robots 5 times the size of what you have, considering you didn't strap a shotgun with 4 hovers on it?

Matchmaking is ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. Unfair, complete disadvantage, and just stupid. You can take a 500 cpu bot to battle and end up with a enemy team with full out 1750 cpu robots that decimate your robot in seconds. Also both the crate system and progression goes into effect, you losing, not getting points, lots of deaths literally punish you for absolutely no reason, and your suppose to get what you need from these matches?

You are literally restricted and hampered on what you can build. The new update removed a fundamential support on the game, and a major feature that used to be present, was to build from your imagination, make fancy hovercraft or World War 2 styled vehicles or something from another game. Now you can't really do that anymore. You are restricted by several factors that doesn't make the game as enjoyable. Some examples include...
- CPU Limits: No I don't mean your computer can't run the game, its how much block power you can put till you can't put anymore, in this case its pretty little unless you level up.
- Crate System: hampers the ability for players to buy what they need.
- CRF(or Community Robot Factory): Players seem to just buy the robots that look practical in order to get what they need for their bot.
- Time: It will literally take ages to get what you need from the crate system, and even then if you recycled the stuff, its too time consuming.
- Premium colors: Simple enough, restrict players on paints, a necessity to have on customizing your robot, and it is frustrating to not have those colors.

The company itself is oddly unreasonable, it used to be more active and interacting with the community way more 2 years ago. Now they've become really transparent, continuing to ignore feedback from the reviews and continuing to make no progress on improving the game with the all critisim and feedback from us, the community.

The company, Freejam needs to change, we the community want the game to be unique, awesome, and ultimately sucessful. It benefits for the community and the company.

Was one of my favorite games until the loot system made building the bot you actually want completely RNG based.

I would go so far as to call it pay-to-win now (though I wouldn\'t blame people who did), but if there\'s something specific you want to build, get ready to grind for weeks or drop some cash.

Bluntly, this game has been outright ruined by a recent update. Avoid until the economy is fixed, don\'t support Freejam ignoring their community.

Ingredients
2 large eggs
Salt and pepper
2 to 3 tablespoons shredded cheese (optional)
1/4 to 1/2 cup filling, pre-cooked if necessary (optional)
2 teaspoons unsalted butter
Minced parsley, to garnish (optional)

Equipment
Mixing bowl
Whisk
8-inch nonstick skillet
Spatula
Dinner plate

Instructions
1. Whisk the eggs: Crack both eggs into a mixing bowl. Whisk the eggs until completely combined, and season with salt and pepper. If you\'re adding cheese or other fillings, make sure they are prepped and nearby.
2. Warm the skillet and melt the butter: Place an 8-inch skillet over medium-high heat and melt the butter. Tilt the skillet as the butter melts to evenly coat the bottom. When the butter stops sizzling, the pan is heated and ready.
3. Pour the eggs into the skillet: Pour the whisked eggs into the skillet. Immediately tilt the pan so the eggs coat the entire bottom. The eggs should sizzle on contact; if not, continue cooking, but remember to heat the pan a little longer next time.
4. Drag and push the eggs to form waves: Use a spatula to gently drag and push the cooked eggs from the edges toward the center of the pan, making space for the uncooked eggs and forming waves in the omelette. Tilt the skillet so that the uncooked eggs flow into the open spaces.
5. Cook the omelette for 1 to 2 minutes: The omelette will finish cooking in 1 to 2 minutes. When done, the bottom will be set and the edges will look crisp. The top of the omelette should still look fairly wet and uncooked, but there will no longer be any loose, easily flowing liquid egg — the omelette will continue cooking off the heat, so finish when you think the top still seems a bit underdone.
6. Top with cheese and fillings: If using, sprinkle the cheese and fillings down the center of the omelette.
7. Fold the omelette: Fold the bottom third of the omelette over the center, and then fold the top third down. Alternatively, fold the omelette in half.
8. Slide the omelette onto a plate: Gently slide the omelette onto a plate and garnish with parsley. Eat right away while still hot.

Robocraft, AKA Plop something on a brick box and you're good to go.
The game is good overall. It has quality, and creativeness.

Pros:
Great Gameplay
Feeling of achievement
Great shop design
Good and smooth quality

Cons:
Expect your video driver to fail a few times when playing this game
Insanely bad Matchmaking, it places you (a newbie) with people who basically are level 150+, ones who have Rocket Launchers, Ghost Modules, Shield Modules etc. Items that would take you either lots of real money, or half a year of your time. Don't be surprised if half your rounds will be brutal since you get insta-killed by every enemy bot, who obviously out levels you.
Pay to win Shop, Legendary (Actually decent) items cost incredible amounts of Robits, which would take you months to collect, for ONE ITEM
Impossibly hard to grind since most rounds will be with OP people, and you will have a very hard time getting MVP status, since that is the only position where you get a chance for good items.
Terrible crate system, any crate that is not Protonium will never give you anything good. Even Protonium is really prone to give crappy items.
Misleading Item ranking system (Some). The Common items should be "Rubbish", Uncommon should be "Common", rare should be "Uncommon, Epic should be "Rare", and Legendary is OK.
If you do not have a sniping weapon or a lock-on weapon, or even a Flak cannon, you cannot take down people who overuse the Rocket Launcher in the skies.
Protonium (most 'rare') crate usually drops 'Uncommon' items (really?).
A huge chunk of the game is not available without Premium. IF you do not have premium, you will not be getting a lot of items, bad color choice, and never enough Robits.

Overall, the game IS GOOD QUALITY. It has a good concept, good look, and same with gameplay. The way it treats its player however, is terrible. If I overlook the Matchmaking just by itself, I rate this game 9/10, WITH the matchmaking, it deserves only a 4/10 or a 5/10.

TL;DR: Robocraft did not deliver on the potential it promised and instead changed the core gameplay mechanics to mimic other shooters, destroying what made the game unique.

I have played this game for over 3000 hours (the standalone launcher does not add to steam hours) and supported the game with over 100GBP (150$+). I was a moderator for the game because I believed in it and wanted to support the community, but was removed from the team because I spoke out to a developer about the direction they were taking – not because I wasn't doing my job, but because I spoke my mind.

The game has changed. Freejam have tried to make the game more accessible to new players, with a focus of getting as many players as possible. But instead of focussing on what made the game great and trying to get players to love it, they changed the gameplay mechanics in order to please a wider audience, which destroyed many aspects of what made the game great and unique in the first place.

Instead of a currency reward system that allows players to buy the parts they want for their robots, they now have a "random loot crate" reward system, which is a blatant attempt at copying other games and trying to trick people into spending real money on the game. Non-premium users get tempted by the items that they could have received if they had paid for premium (every loot crate that gets opened show the premium items) with the option to purchase it now to receive the items. Furthermore, only the top scoring player on the winning team receives the highest level crate (which promises better item drop chances), while every member of the losing team receives the same low quality crate. This leads to selfish play for the highest score rather than the rewarding teamplay experience that it used to be, and also leads to the losing team to stop trying because they receive the same bad rewards either way.

They also made the most interesting part about the game – the fact that building skill and design decisions directly affects battle performance – much less meaningful over the last couple of months, by removing the pilot seat component, introducing auto-healing (another aspect to mimic other shooters), and allowing each player to put several different gun types on their robots, which removes the need for playstyle specialisations. This also negatively affects teamplay, because there is no use for dedicated medics or dedicated frontline or support types – every player is now a (selfish) one-man-army trying to score the highest points.

This game had a lot of potential a year ago, but the developer's decisions over the last updates have shown that they care less about making a good game and more about the money they can make by trying to get more players with lower skill levels, by copying other generic shooter-types and removing/reducing the unique aspects that used to make Robocraft great.

Freejam have gone the way many F2P games go and opted for the cash-grab alternative. It is disappointing, because there was so much potential.

UPDATE: After two and a half weeks, the lead game designer released a "state of the game" letter, which conveniently failed to address any of the points the community has brought up in their feedback. This, to me, puts the final nail in the coffin. These developers do not care for the quality of their game or their community, they are only out for new players for their statistics and wallets.

I may not be a super old or veteran player, but I feel entitled, as a paying costumer, to give my opinion about this game.

Bad design choices, bad design choices everywhere. I won't go super detailed as some old veterans, like Juvar23, so I will just quickly comment on why I stopped recommending this game to my friends:

The last update, Epic Loot, was a good idea. But they executed it in a manner that it feels like one of these mobile games with a life spam of 1-year or less, made to extract the biggest amount possible of money.

It's unrewarding, it's relentless, it's not fitting for a game with the premise of BUILDING things. The issue is, the mind behind Freejam, Mark Simmons, is too dellusional over his own work to admit it's flaws, effectively leading the game to disaster.

Here's an "interview" with the developer team which nicely sums up the current robocraft situation:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXiTCtWD2SE

This used to be a fun game where you got rewarded with ingame currency and access to new robot parts every few hours of playing. Cycle of purchasing set of new parts, building a robot and fighting against others in a team deathmatch or MOBA-style game type was quite fun.

Then Epic Loot update broke the game completely:
- it removed the progression
- it removed the currency
- it added crafting instead of currency, which isn't really a thing since recycling items gives too small fraction and thus no value
- it removed the matchmaking barrier between players, so now Veteran players armed to the teeth with items worth hundreds of thousands of robits now play against robots worth just a few thousand robits. It's called "Seal clubbing".
- it added loot box system - after every game you get a few random items. I now have one spider leg, 1 medium size laser, 14 wings (but no good air weapon), 3 wheels of different type, 1 ski and a robot leg.

I built a new robot every 2-3 days before the patch, now I have done one in two weeks because parts drop one by one instead of in sets, like I used to buy them in the old currency.

Developers say that everything is ok ;)

Freejam, this is why I quit Robocraft: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=686550685

Premium should give you duplicates of the item you unboxed, not give you random sh*t like this.

Also, that was my first Legendary, Seriously.

*(Edit 5/19/16)*
I guess getting 2 legendaries for premuim is a little too much... soo mabye they should hide premuim slots in crates if you don't have premuim. It gets 30x more frustrating (like the picture above). Tbh ik it's a way to encourage premuim, but.. I've already paid $35 for this game lol

I first got this game on a whim when it first came to steam and it was great; fun, innovative, unique, challenging and rewarding.

I stopped playing after there was an update that killed the progression system (which had nothing wrong with it before, why fix what isn't broken?). I decided to come back recently to see how the game had changed and I have to say the game is nothing like it was before and has been completely ruined; punishing reward sytem, unique building has been made redundant, no team work or strategy and still a terrible progression system and matchmaking system.

A quick scan of forums a reviews made it apparent that the devs were not listening to anything the community was saying and update after update continued to ruin what was once a great game that I would've recommended to anyone.
They used to have a great game with the potential to be even better, but as the game is now I just can't recommend you invest any time into it.

If I could offer any advice to Freejam, I would say that they scrap the updates, revert the game back to early alpha and start again.

I joined this game and fell in love with the custom robots, the balanced tier system, and the fun mechanics of the weapons and building before the Marks update(Thar be gunchairs over them thar hills!).

Should've known this malarky wouldn't've stopped after more than one flip of the table update. They never stop even after much disdain to how the updates change things, and they never backpedal, even when somebody not two sheets to the wind would.

It's now all about who has the "legendary" weapons. Who's gotten the RNG favor today? Never gotten anything good other than pitiful cosmetics or something I already have plenty of. I get a legendary? It's a blimmin' "special" pair of wings. I get epic? Gee, six useless cubes that some idiot rubbed up on with charcoal(carbon),... Joy. Only time I saw anything worthwhile in this topsy turvey hole is when it was on premium, which I'm assuming is also more likely than free to get legendary items.

It's flak, shotgun, or grind until you get them because everything else is six feet under as even rails won't stop a horde of blinking shotgun, crutch players. I enjoy the fond memories, but over 200 hours of my life were wasted on this sinking ship. Glad this mutated, devolved abomination is out of my library forever(and a day).

Also, ever notice how most positive reviews keeping this game's recent review rating above "Mostly Negative" are not just grammatically inept, but simple statements with no reasoning or logic as to why it is actually still anything more than another "social experiment" gone wrong?

This game may be "free", but I'd like 265 hours of my life refunded, please!

Update:Just came back to check, and congratulations on making it more visible to the developers, as Steam now regards the recent reviews as "Mostly Negative". May it someday penetrate the narcissistic, thick craniums that choose a vile idea of what they want to make rather than the majority's desires, that someday we may actually have fun grinding gear again, as I did before epic loot or their abysmal energy malarky.

Though seriously, a couple condescending numbskulls on youtube making reaction videos were smart enough to backpedal, so why the hell isn't a single person in a team of about 35 bright enough to do so?

As an update, I've reviewed this on IndieDB as well, and here is the review:

From the heights of potential and of much praise, to something whose developers condemn the very people advising them of their wrongdoings, proclaiming their own players at fault for not adapting, and in spite of the condemnation of such a lousy recent update, all they'll do is tweak it and add onto it, blaming us players for the prestated fault. I'm sorry, I'm not fond of adapting to a bed of nails at night, nor people who say they listen, but only if it's a one-sided conversation in their favor("quality of life" voting system, wink wink*flipped bird*).

I had so much fun at one time, making custom robots in creative ways and duking it out with others, but that was many, many updates ago. They've done it before, and they've done it again after the main update everybody is ragging upon, with the armor update. They flip the main mechanics of the game about like a yo-yo and expect us to deal with it.

What we hold dear also means nothing to them, proven with the removal of megas, and the addition of shotguns. Now you'll never have to worry about actually spending effort, creativity, time, or any intelligent ingenuity! Just money(go figures, eh?)! All your work gets annihilated in a heartbeat anyway, courtesy of shotguns. Just grab a couple high-tier legs, a couple shotguns, perhaps a blink module and some rechargers, then slap a couple armor cubes on, or maybe a flak! You'll win every time until the matchmaker forces you to lose twenty games in a row(gee, 'fair', right?!)! This game is not what it was, and not in a good way.

It didn't change into something of worth or equal value, it mutated into an abomination lead by minds beyond a point of any sane return. Wanna bet the developers still will pay us no heed, and if they do, they'll be obnoxiously condescending?

I highly recommend you review it on IndieDB as well. There aren't many reviews, and any surge of reviews now will be recent, so they... might maybe,... possibly actually... listen to us.

Used to be good game, recent changes to the economy really killed it for me. Been around since pre-electroplates, I have a couple hundred hours in this game (only recently synced to steam). Other complaints include some of the recent weapons being too expensive, taking ages to get a new weapon after they announce it.

Used to be good but once again Devs kill a fun game . Introducing stupid ideas and ruining the game completely. lasers dont do half the damage they used to, buying parts now requires grinding forever to get 1 part, 1100RP for a win and parts costing thousands will take forever to get anywhere. shame its time to uninstall a game that used to be fun !

The game was great, you could just play and build bots, but what all the updates were aiming for? CS:GO weapon crates.
This game is going to hell, and the Devs arent listeing to the community.

Freejam, I dont know why exactley you converted to this system, but if your copying someone else, let me tell you, every game is unique and just because another system works really well, that doesnt justify a complete rework of the game. Game progression based on gambling is bogus for a game that attracts people who like building. You need to fix this and I mean fix it right now!

Robocraft was a great game.

Unfortunately, whilst some of the fun still remains, the developers of this game (FreeJam) have become greedy and forgot what their game/company was about. They have completely ignored their vocal community and have made the reward system become a game of RNG as opposed to skill.

The balance has been destroyed gradually over the past year, up to the point that there are now 'legendary' weapons that will outgun any normal weapons. To make matters worse, the new weapon types are also designed to require no skill (such as massive aoe explosions and auto-aim). The overall result of this is the game no longer rewards thoughtful construction of bots and skillful aiming.

If you are a new player, these problems are even more prevalant, as you will be matched up against players who will slap a hover blade onto a 'legendary' weapon and they will completely outlcass anyone within their robot's rating (which is determined by the parts you use to build your robot).

Unfortunately this game seems to be moving towards 'cash grab' and is starting to feel like a premium mobile game.

I know it says I only played 0.2 hours, but thats because I play off my launcher. I have hundreds of hours in the game.

Now for my review. I made it negative, because even though I really do like the game, I hate all of the new updates. They make the game worse with every one of them. They added Flak, LOML, and worst of all the Proto Seeker (all three of which are weapons that need no skill at all, since two of them are lock on and the flak has a huge explosion radius). They removed Megabots. And lastly, they added crates and removed RP (which makes it nearly impossible to get the parts that you need).

Robocraft used to be a great game, but now it's ruined.

Watch your clever and innovative ideas get shot down, alongside the rest of your demoralized and despairing team struggling against well-established competitors, by people who coincidentally have spent more money in the shops than you, as part of a seemingly endless loot grind that incentivizes your regular attendance for the sake of individual earnings, which evenutally, as part of your attempts to defy or endure personal despair and misery from the grind's beat-down on your ideas and creativity, causes you to peg all your hopes on gambling in order to maybe one day expand your capacity to be creativity expressive or competitive enough to make a difference you can feel, or maybe even eventually lets you feel some pride if you can ignore that it was largely a matter of luck and wealth.

Then after work log onto robocraft in your personal downtime for a completely different and highly enjoyable experience.
