Early Access Game

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.”

QoL Community Poll #2 – Results



The second community vote has come to an end!

Thousands upon thousands of you voted, and as promised we will do what you voted on!

Next community voted mechanic to be implemented in Robocraft will be:
Robot centre of mass, total mass and total health indicators in edit mode!

Unsurprisingly, the winner of this poll came in second place last time! Players will be empowered to build better balanced, more effective robots with the inclusion of additional information in edit mode. No longer will players be forced to pull out a pen and paper to calculate the mass on each side of their creation, or build through trial and error!

You can see the full results below.
CLICK HERE TO ENLARGE THE IMAGE



(Note that not everyone polled finished the survey but votes per option were
still counted which is why the total respondent numbers vary.

So now that we have your top voted QoL feature, it will be prioritised for development. Keep in mind that it’s not a small undertaking so you won’t see it in the next update, but it will be released as soon as it’s ready. At that time, we’ll have another community vote to decide what should be worked on next!

Now that we have a list of the most and least liked ideas, we have an even better idea of what the community wants. So for the next vote, we can remove some of the lowest voted options and replace them with ideas we hope will appeal more to players, including many of the great suggestions we received from the comments section of the survey. This way we can keep the list fresh and interesting!

All I can say at this time is that Robocraft is still in alpha, so there may be some hope for this game yet. But for now, we must wait until FreeJam stops denying all of the issues that have been brought up countless times by the community and hope they finally fix them. I don't recommend this game at the moment, but hopefully the future of this game will be better, and FreeJam can make those changes with all of the money they made from the "epic" loot update. April of 2015 was in my opinion the best year for this game-megabots, tiers and boss battles existed, and you relied on RP and TP, both earned from battling, to improve your robots and unlock parts. Now, crates determine (and undermine) the fate of your career. FreeJam added the Epic Loot update to increase freedom by being able to obtain any part at any point in the game, but they messed up two very crucial components-balancing crate rewards and the ability to actually afford anything! If FreeJam made the higher-level crates actually give you appropriate rewards and not something nearly worthless, many players wouldn't be as unhappy as they are now.

Basically, until FreeJam either balances crates properly or gets rid of them completely, don't bother with this once enjoyable game.

WARNING: I AM ONLY NOT RECOMMENDING BECAUSE THERE ISN'T A MIDDLE BUTTON AND I AM NOT GONNA EDIT THIS MUCH BECAUSE I JUST MADE A REVIEW THAT TOOK 10 MINUTES

Now, when you start, you get a nice set of items, to make your tank/plane/atv/Joke*, but then, after a while, POOF! There gone. Now you don't have an overabundance of items like before, and this is kind of a pet peeve of mine, because I had an awesome battle tank, and all the things used to make it disappeared. Overall, if you have some boredom, and you don't have anything else, play this AS A LAST RESORT. The game isn't bad, it's just P2W.

This is one of the most long lasting fun type of game I have every played. It may not be s lot compared to other people but as of now I have 46 hours logged in robocraft and it it the game I have played the most on steam. I would love to see this game get an even larger community and become a major stamp on the history of steam.

TLDR I do not recommend this game, not even if you paid me to. Links in info, please look.

I recommended this game quite a while ago and honestly used to love it and support it. However, the game design has gone ways that are just unapealing, unchallanging and quite bothersome to me. I started playing this game because I like building robots, and at the time of me playing, it was the only game I knew about that was of this sort. However, as time went on, I saw other similar games, and I also saw good suggestions for robocraft, not get implemented in game, while bad suggestions and ideas did. Seb, one of the game devs seems to think our negative reviews are jokes, but this just shows you how seriously they take our criticism because its their game and they want to take it the way they want, the way that makes them the most money and scares off the most logical players and makes way for children who have fat wallets for GambleCraft 2.0 open your wallet addition. Well, now they are on damage control and posting fake apologies, but its a bit too little and a bit too late. Dont apologize, fix this game and revert far far back to when it was once a good game. I dont care about all the time you spent on it, you ruined it. You fix the game and you will fix the reviews by doing so. Until than, keep laughing freescam, but if you go out of buisness, dont expect me to not laugh because it was YOUR fault. I dont want you to fail, but you seem dead set on doing so. I could list all the things I hate about how the game went but seb will just say get used to it. https://twitter.com/sebify/status/726373014854615040 #Game dev, FreeScam games https://twitter.com/sebify/status/677895687548350465 https://twitter.com/TomCat__86/status/728177749706186753 oh and dont forget, they will ban you for talking about other games or having valid cricitism on bad updates. http://steamcommunity.com/id/Juvar23/recommended/301520/ What other company do you know of that is that insecure? Hell I cant think of any. Whoops, I talked about how the update is horrible. BAN, Whoops I talked about a game thats better than robocraft, BAN. http://steamcommunity.com/app/301520/discussions/2/364040166681997039/ it also appears the company freejam that puts out robocraft is owned by a mobile gambling game company and freejam owes them over 1 million dollars of debt due in september. http://robocraftgame.com/forums/topic/will-robocraft-be-adversely-affected-because-74-of-freejam-owned-by-hyperion/

I love reading the recent reviews on steam about robocraft and you can easily see how pretty much all recent reviews are negative. The only reason the game still has an overal possitive rating is because the possitive reviews are years old by people who no longer play. I hope you devs have a fun time dealing with bankruptcy.

There are many bugs, imbalances, and seriously large pet peeves in this Robocraft game for me. You are very limited in what you can build, but other games have much more freedom that are also free. I have recently started playing Machine Craft on steam, I have screen shots of the bots I have made and come in contact with. You can build so complex and so large in that game its like using a megabot x100. You can even build transforming transformers. However, the skill cap is much higher, the game takes much more thought, and the community is much more mature. If this is what you are looking for, try machine craft if you like building. If you like a younger audiance and a very low skill cap, play robocraft. This is a link to Machine Craft. It was recently just released on steam so the community is rather small but when you like it, tell your friends about it and it will grow. Its an amazing game. http://store.steampowered.com/app/397100
This is a link to steamcraft if you enjoy the competitive side that robocraft sort' of granted. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=619286876

Either game looks like a great replacement for robocrap, I hope you enjoy the replacements and also give robocraft a deserved review like most of us have. Evidenced by the continually declinging approval rating.

This game used to be fun. Now it's a money grabbing, gambling-orientated piece of ♥♥♥♥. No fun anymore the whole aspect has been replaced with grind. Just grind grind grind. Want to skip grind? Dish out a couple of thousand dollars to sit through hours of ♥♥♥♥♥♥ crate opening you can't skip to accumulate a few hundred thousand "robits" which is worth a couple of legendary plasma guns or SMGS. Only then may you reach the top and stay there for a couple of weeks before more dumb ♥♥♥♥ is added so you can grind and grind even more.

Just kidding, there is no top anymore. Back when the game had a purpose, which was you getting to the highest tier (TX-1) and unlocking everything step by step in the tech tree. Everything had a tier except cosmetics - weapons, cubes, thrusters, you name it. Each tier cube had a unique colour too. Black cubes was a symbol of respect, everyone followed you around and hid behind you since you could take the most damage, while purple cubes were not a symbol of respect. These days you can colour your whole bot in four ugly colours, white, grey, pale orange and pale blue. All of the nice colours are hidden away behind premium. Oh boy, premium! Just 99p a day! Who do you think I am, the prince of Nigeria?

If you had a T2 bot, you were matched fairly against players from your own tier. Even if you had T6 railguns, you were still put with players of the same level. What about today? Newbies and veteran players all get grabbed in handfuls and mashed together into a "match". Who pays the most for rocket launchers and legendary bull ♥♥♥♥ is the winner in every match, even if you played the game from the alpha version, you can get owned in 1 second by some snobby spoiled little tw4t with a rich daddy's credit card. Don't even get me started on the crates in this game.

Items were purchased with GC (galaxy cash) or RP (robo points iirc), but you could not buy a million GC with your rich daddy's credit card to get the highest level stuff. Instead you needed tech points to unlock items, which were only available through playing the game. You unlocked items in the tech tree, in which cubes, weapons, wheels, electroplates etc. were unlocked level by level using tier tech points. These tech points are earned after every battle, and were unique to each tier. If your bot is T10 for example, you would earn T10 tech points, with which you were able to unlock a variety of T10 equipment, but nothing higher or lower. You could also convert these tech points to uber tech points (using GC) which could unlock every item from every tier. The tech tree was BALANCED. Why break a working, operational system? Are you really that money hungry, freejam? You should rename yourself to paidjam or gamblejam. Or "piece of ♥♥♥♥ inc." Keep hiding behind "early access" for it's such a good excuse when people point out what a terrible game you've made. I hate you.

Short version: you have to pay for having a full team and get matched with random pubs in order to bash them. This is a shame. It's against any possible fair play logic. A shameful milestone for Steam and online multiplayer games as well...

EDIT: they added a paywall contest too. Make food-looking bot. Sadly they already put all the colors we once had behind the usual paywall. This way you have to buy premium in order to get the chance to do anything that is not 4 monotone colors made...

EDIT: now they are organizing 5vs5 tournaments claiming they finally have a competitive scene... that would be fine if everyone had the same chances to play and train, but obviously it's not like that, since the so called paywall. unbelievable...

Best thing this game can teach is that spoiled kids have more chance than others. Great job...

Long version:
Besides the amazing sound and the perfectly fit graphic here is one of the many (and really, the most shameful one) reasons you should not play this game:

After 2 years of playing, hoping for the best and supporting the game for a while, in the usual attempt to "mimic moba" they have introduced a 5vs5 mode, but guess what:

In order to play in full team you have to pay. yes, you got it right. you have to pay for having a full team and stomp on random people, matched for you by their long term broken matchmaker.

They will come to you with any possible excuse like "we are cheaper than others" or "you need just 1 player to pay [for having the chance to stomp on pubs]", but in the end that's what all is about. They will also flood the forum with promises and projects they will not stick to, defended by a horde of kids that will spawn endless "stfu we are in alpha" messages.

It really sets a milestone in the multiplayer games. the most unfair one.

Back when games development wasn't purely based on greed we called this "pub bashing" and that was the lamest thing a team could do. In robocraft you can pay for bashing pubs, it's perfectly allowed and even promoted by the game itself.

It puts every kind of real cooperation, competition, strategy and fair multiplayer whatsoever behind a paywall.

The crate system was already a huge drawback for a game that proposed itself as an innovative building one. Turning it into a loot/gamble hell and removing any real decision on the items to buy with in-game points... if you don't want to wait for a couple of months of grinding for getting some (oh, you can of course rise the chances with real money...). But hey, there are people who like these kind of games, so whatever...

Now they reach the bottom. After the additional paying slot for platoons, they offer paying full team bashing.

Many things have been proposed by the community, like private servers and many suggestions have been made about fair games, custom games and tournaments but they got no clue of what fair and balanced gaming is about except for every possible way to get an income from that.

There are 2 ways:
1 make an amazing product that everyone loves, supports and buys. This was the original project.
2 put candies for kids behind a paywall. This is Freejam way.

If you had any hope about this company forget about it and move on.

Used to be a very fun game that encouraged creativity with the simple and straightforward reward system. Playing a match = gain currency and experience. Be on winning team and play well = greater reward. It was simple and effective and there was absolutely no reason to change this.

I started the game up again a month after a horrendous update was released in which game mechanics were completely changed for the worse. The entire economy now relies on a crate system which slaps you with horrible RNG. I gave it a chance despite this and grinded my way to 400 kills on single player a few times for some sweet legendaries from the Protonium crates. Of course, my loot merely consisted of a few hundred basic blocks that could easily be obtained from the Rusty crates with much less effort anyway. Multiplayer wasn't any better. Even when you're the MVP of the match on a winning team, you don't get much better chance of any useful loot from the worst player on the losing team. Basically, progression in the game solely relies on RNG now.

Please, Freejam. Nobody older than 12 will play this game as long as you keep the sell/buy rate set as 1/20. I feel like many companies build up a fun, nice game with a good community and BOOM, they break it with horrible and non dependable grind rates and micro transactions. The gameplay is also broken, with the only useful weapons being lock on missiles that take no skill to use and are almost impossible to obtain without using micro transactions, which themselves don't even guarantee you a no-skill weapon that makes everybody who hasn't realised the new update sucks yet hate you. FreeJam has just become another company feeding money off of their players and turning their community to absolute ♥♥♥♥.

tl;dr Was good, then became a p2w. Avoid unless you have a massive disposable income and are fine with a company trying to swindle you.

I got into this game a year or two ago. A genius idea it was back then. Near unlimited creativity, fun gameplay, a good community, low lag, yadda yadda yadda. That's all auxillary stuff. It's what makes a good game into a great game. But what about the essential stuff? It was all there, too, and in innovative fashions: a well-developed and balanced tech tree, specialization to create diverse teams, currency rewards based on how well you performed, quick and fair matchmaking, the list goes on and on. All of this was essential; you play well, you get currency, you upgrade your robot in the direction you want, and you go through the tiers, facing harder opponents as you go.

Ah, what I wouldn't give to go back to the days when this game wasn't a steaming pile of pay-to-win trash.

Creativity? Gone. Premade robots are the only real contenders now. Why is that?
Progression? Gone. Now you get a linear tech "tree" that unlocks without the tech points of before.
How do you get new parts, you ask? Why, with the currency of course!
...Except not the same currency.
Now you get a currency which is only granted to you based upon how many parts you sell. And how do you get these parts?
With the completely original and foolproof crate system, how else?
For just a single match, YOU can get a crate of at least five items that YOU didn't choose. Oh, not even that, though, since one is dangled in front of your face like a pet toy, essentially going, "You COULD have this, but you have to be a PREMIUM MEMBER!"
And there's the center of the problem. Membership.
Jesus H. Christ on ice skates, membership costs so much that you'll need to just start paying with your dignity. $1.99 a DAY. That's about $60 a month -- money that could EASILY buy you at least three retail games on sale, or a full-price title -- and about $725-730 a year.
You could buy at least 25 decent games with that kind of money.

Oh, but that's not even the half of it.
What do you get for your money? Well, you get:
-A color wheel (Did I mention you only get a whopping FOUR colors to choose from, if you're a normal member?)
-Some rare weapons in crates (that don't do nearly as much damage as they originally did)
-Instant access to the stronger weapons (I omit the word "tier" because there IS no tier system any more; little Johhny that just joined the game and threw together a gun on a car frame with no armor will go up against someone with 2,000 hours with a fully decked out air bomber. Funny thing is, if you get lucky, you can take down the "highest level" players with entry-level gear.)
-Some cosmetics and stuff that don't do anything

...I think you get the gist. It's not worth it.
So, in conclusion, it's a prime example of what happens when money goes to a dev team's head but they want to keep that "free to play" sticker on Steam so poor losers with nothing in their wallet can actually play something. Or, rather, suckers with too much money to spend waste it on their pay to win scheme. After all, winning feels good!

Oh, and did I mention it's buggy and laggy now?
It's buggy and laggy now.


Freejam, I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed.

TL:DR - Get it if you have nothing better to play. Otherwise, move on.

Back when i first started playing this, about 2 years ago, this game was actually pretty neat. It was 'Robocraft'. You build your bots, go into battle, get RP, buy more parts and improve your bot. You could go into a battle and see unique bots all over. Some sucked. Some were OP. Some were simply ridiculous.

Fast forward to now. With the CRF introduced, it's not so much Robocraft as it is Robo'copy-n-paste'. I see one awesome design in one match. Cool. Next match i see a similar design but with rearranged electroplates. Then i see one with different weapons. Suffice to say, people aren't as encouraged to build their own bots as they were pre-CRF. Still not that bad. I mean, they can copy the bots but i'm still building mine from scratch.

The addition of Flaks, and all updates henceforth, spelt the death of this game. Current state of the game? Build a tanky ground bot, or get rekt (buy big shotgun). Build a small and fast flyer that is capable of retreating easily, or get rekt (by big flak cannon). The number of 'viable' builds in the game has been greatly limited to giant ground tank, or small/fast flyer. No more flying tanks. No minimen. It's just, for lack of a better word, pathetic. Flaks just knock you down no matter how tanky your plane is. An easy fix for this would be if FreeJam did something sensible and, a) decreased flak firerate or b) decreased the damage. But it's FreeJam, when've they ever listened to player input? Thank god for FreeJam that the LOML (Lock-on Missile Launcher) isnt too bad after recent nerfs. Not even gonna get started on the shotgun.

INB4 "Make better bots you noob"
Fair point. Maybe i should make better bots. Now i just need more cu-- NOPE. In order to get cubes/weapons/parts, i'll need to head into battle. In order to get good stuff i need to place high up. To place high up, i'll need... oh no... a better bot!!11!?!?!?1? See where i'm going? With the old RP system, I could've easily gone into battle, farmed cash, then bought whatever i needed at the time. Now i play with a sh17b07, get low rank, then get more sh17 to place on sh17b07. Oh how do i get out of this loop? :c. By spending cash on the stacks of protonium boxes obviously (which i'll note, does not guarantee at least one decent item).

End of Review/Rant/Rantview - FreeJam needs help. Whatever they're trying, or tried, to make of this game is far out of sight, and can never be reached because they took the wrong train to crapland.

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.
