What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

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

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect the game to remain in Early Access for at least the next 6 months after it's initial release on Steam. This way the Steam community can help to shape the game as the rest of the Robocraft community has so far.”

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

“When Clan Battles, Tournaments, Megabots (players as bosses in Boss Battles vs. other users), plus integration of Steam Leaderboards and Steam Achievements.”

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 it's blood. The work Freejam is a combination of 'Free' and 'Jam' where 'Free' shows our dedication to keeping Robocraft always Free and 'Jam' stands for 'Jamming'. We like to think of Robocraft as a game that has been built from the ground up with the community and 'Jamming' with the community is ingrained in everything we do.”

Where are those Electroplates?

July 19th, 2014

A quick update on what’s going on from Freejam.

Electroplates – These are done, tested, and ready to launch. Our aim is to launch Tuesday morning.

Why the delay? – The reason for the delayed launch is that we need to first upgrade our website servers, which means moving our website over to an uber server at Amazon and away from the current provider. This is all done and we’re just waiting for a low traffic point to switch it all over (early Monday morning UK time).

Why website before Electroplates? – The recent increased traffic from Steam is pushing the website to the max during peak times. Any more traffic and new users won’t be able to register at all. Steam actually featured Robocraft on the main store page and that extra traffic broke the website completely and we had to ask then to unfeature us whilst we upgrade the web servers. When we launch major updates – like the EP will be – we get a lot of extra traffic to the website. This means if we launch the EP before upgrading the website, the website will break. That’s why we have to do it first.

Alignment Rectifier (aka “The Flipper”) – This cube is also complete, but will release after the EP launch. We are staggering the launches to give us a regular steady feed of new features to launch to you every week.

Mars Map #3 – This is also complete, and will likely launch at the same time as the Alignment Rectifier.

Robo-Leagues – We’re most of the way there now with the leagues, but we figuring out how to reward users who get into the Pro and Elite leagues. We want to provide a way where these users can show their league achievements somehow. The Roboleague will launch the week after the AR and new map.

Robot Shop – This is also complete, accept we haven’t designed any awesome Robots for it yet. We’ve been focusing our time on the Electroplate launch first.

Others stuff:

- We’ve been working hard on a new lobby system. This will allow us to have an infinite amount of users in a single lobby, meaning that all T10′s for example will be in the same lobby. This will reduce queue times and improve match-making a lot
- We’re working hard in the background to try to improve Robocloud issues, such as issues logging in, ‘invalid password’ issues, lobby issues, and Friend and Platoon issues. This has been complex as it’s required some back and forth development between Freejam and Yahoo Games Network (Robocloud provider)
- We’ve made a fair few bug fixes for this next release as well, we’re trying to put more time into bug fixing and polish as we go now

Community:

Sorry we haven’t been on the forums as much recently. Freejam have been fire-fighting a ton of issues which has led to us getting our heads down in development to get them sorted. We’ve got some extra Jammers coming on board to help us interact with the community more from next week as we don’t want to miss any of the amazing feedback that you all give us and we want to be able to respond to you more often, especially when you’re having technical issues and reporting players etc.

We are experiencing insainly high volumes of traffic to our website at the moment which is reducing the responsivenesss of the website and causing problems with registration.

saw someone in a penis car with cannons.

*edit* Since people keep ♥♥♥♥♥ing that this isnt a "real" review here it is RoboCraft is easily one of the most fun free to play games on steam. If you like building cool stuff and Ruining other people ships that they spent hours perfecting only to be picked out of the sky with afew well placed shots this is your game. 10/10

First impressions:

(optional let's play footage)
http://youtu.be/UiQJ5ZGFJlM
I played Robocraft for just under half an hour until I started having trouble connecting to the server and was no longer able to play. I think it’s probably overloaded because of the popularity.

For an alpha the presentation is pretty good. Main menu area looks good. Sounds alright and has decent menu music.

You pilot pre-made or modified robot vehicles. Or build them from scratch piece by piece. You have a selection of different types of chassis blocks i.e. heavy armour or light, propulsion e.g. (hover or wheels, rear wheel drive or front wheel drive etc.), weapons and so on. You make your robot in any shape or configuration you want. You can make a heavy tank, a gunship with long range or short range weapons. Online matches appear to be a team deathmatch.

The typical players robot isn't very pretty but I think this game has a lot of potential for some really cool designs. And because of the apparently huge amount of customisation a large amount of variety to gameplay.

In the short time that I played I basically thought the game was awesome from the start. I've been avoiding Early Access titles but I would definitely recommend playing this game. What have you got to lose? It is free.
