Early Access Game

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

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.”

Happy Birthday Community Robot Factory!

Today we’re having a bit of a celebration in the Freejam office; the Community Robot Factory (CRF) turns one! So donuts all round!

In one short year, the CRF has grown beyond our expectations; with over 2,000,000 of your very creative robots being uploaded, shared and sold to the Robocraft community at large.

We’ve often been so impressed with your Robot design skills that your creations have adorned our in-game splash screen and promotional materials.

To celebrate this momentous milestone, we’ve created a rather swanky infographic highlighting some of the facts and figures you might be interested to know.

i liked the game when it had the old currency but as soon as you removed the tier ranking system the game because a pile of rubbish i am lucky if i ever play this game when i have nothing else to do and even then its only for like 5 minutes and then i get annoyed and come off of it because of how much i hate it.

Abysmal, the developer's actions are horrible. Freejam has left us with a mix of P2W and "epic loot" which is not epic at all. In a nutshell, this game used to be a great F2P. But now they added DLC, crates that make no sense, terrifyingly OP weapons, and P2W which made everything unbalanced. Utter garbage.

This game was alright when it first came out. the only reason i dont reccomend it anymore is because they botched everything good that they had, and made a lot of things a purchasable thing only.

Anyone who says this game is still good probably thinks it is because they just started playing after the loot system update. These new players writing good reviews obviously don't know how amazingly fun and creative this game used to be a year ago. Now Free Jam tries fixing their errors with new monthly updates, but these updates never bring back the good old game I loved. Developers please fix this. Trust me, everyone enjoyed this game before you ruined it.

This was a really good game, however it just got ruined with all the updates. Won't go in full detail cause there's allot of stuff that just make this game absolutely atrocious, but I just gonna go over some. Before the crates came in the game was still fun, even with all the unbalanced guns and match making. But now, you could be playing for hours and get nothing. The items you get from crates at the end of a game are just complete useless, so useless that selling them for money is not even worth it. They are more useful as a "dust collector" then anything else. There is no more skill involved anymore as the devs also took that away. Brining in lock on missle launchers, and making that if you shoot your self you dont lose energy, which takes away from the entire point of being strategic with your shots and conserving energy. The distinction in classes which were; medic, sniper, support (plasma, laser) are just gone. Anyone can be eveything, which just takes away the fun of using strategy and working together to defeat the enemy.The 10 second heal which is that if your not shot with-in 10 seconds your robot heals. This just makes everyone go rambo cause they pretty much charge in, shoot, then heal, needing no medic or team-mates to help them defeat the enemy. And lastly, the pay-to-win aspect of the game (buying crates to get items, being able to buy legendary guns, buying items to boost heal regen, etc...) are just so damn gamebreaking that even with hundred of hours of grinding (which I have done in this game) someone spending money on the game could match you and destroy you with no problem. Overall, I woudn't recommend this game as there's too many things that just take away from the gameplay being fun.

Used to be good. Now it's watered down to build a block and strap your best equipment on it. But wait! You can only do that if you managed to get any from that flawed (un)Epic Loot drop. How fun!

Okay,let's face it,this game has gone to crap. I know that freejam has done way better than they currently are. But one thing the community needs to know by now is that developers of free to play games need to have in game purchases. To ensure people buy this the developers make the ways to collect the currency extremely repetitive and tedious. People start to be worn down by the offers for things they don't have yet. No game is free from a development stand point so the premium is a way to make the money to cover it and make profit. Money is one of the things that is the problem with these types of games and that's why it is early access,to help fund the development of the game. But do the ends meet the means? To change the way the game's main objective so often is really bad for a game. The way they changed some things just mess up everything. When adding in a new weapon,it seems they don't play test to see how it balances out with existing ones. It would also really help this game if there was a way to create a community server so people don't fear how long their money will last. If freejam stops making money,they may shut down the servers like many other multiplayer only games. So,if you don't mind losing a few bucks on a game,this is a good game.

Posted: September 16
There once was a time when this game was simple, had a simple matchmaking system, and a simple ship building concept. It was a game where you battled to get more stuff for your ship, used the stuff to battle and get more stuff, and eventually unlock cool items to put on your ship. Players were sorted into "tiers", which were general leagues of power for a ship. You simply could not place powerful items on your ship and expect to keep facing noob players. The tier concept allowed good players to maximize ships for specific laugues of players, and for less skilled players to know that, once they place enough items on their ship to go into a new tier, they will be at a slight dissadvantage unless they prepare right.

It made the concept of unbalanced gameplay less unbalanced. Now, unfortunately, you know absolutely nothing about your opponents, or whether specific items will be overspending for your level and land you in a new group of opponents, or if your weapons aren't quite powerful enough to face off with the people at your level. You go in blind, and can't even leave the damn match with any means other than the task manager when you screw up your build. This could mean a solid ten minutes of gameplay in which you are simply wasting your time.

If it's really a concern about unbalanced teams after someone leaves, then just throw in one of those pre-made ships piloted by an AI or something. Or better yet, don't make it a damn trial and error session just to make a ship for a specific group. I couldn't even make a ship with nothing but cubes and a few smg's without getting blasted apart by people outside my preparation.

Seriously, I don't know what to use and what not to use. Do I grab some shielding, or does it raise my ranking a ♥♥♥♥ ton so I don't know? What guns are people using at my level? Are cubes good armor, or do they even HAVE armor in this game?

This game was once simple, and it was good. Maybe people like what they have now, but I wouldn't know since I have no F-ing clue what they'd be talking about.
