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.”

Approximately 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.”

UPDATE ON ROBOCLOUD TROUBLES

Hi All,

I wanted to update you on our progress on the troubles we are having on the servers. If you aren't aware of the troubles so far, please read my letter from this morning here.

First, I want to say sorry for all the server issues today. The servers are experiencing huge spikes in calls to its API’s which are overloading them and taking them down. Around every 30-60 minutes the servers overload, then die, then reboot. This has been happening throughout the day. The game allows you to play battles for a while, then you notice you cannot join a battle or you do not get a reward at the end of battle and then you have to wait a while before you can enter battle again.

We strongly suspect that this is the result of a malicious hack (DDOS style, but not DDOS) into the servers designed to overload them and prevent our users from enjoying the game.

Yahoo (our service provider for Robocloud) has added a lot more API servers to try to help with the issue, but adding more servers has not helped at all.

Seb and Brian have been working all day on changes to the client to prevent a malicious attack of this kind being possible but it has required going over all the code and changing hundreds of lines of code changes. They have been heroic in their efforts and we are coming to the end of the changes now, but it is very late, which means we are not going to be able to test it thoroughly (normally our testing takes at least 8 hours) and we are not prepared to release a version that is totally untested (we wouldn’t want to delete your Robots or something bad like that). So, I have decided to make the call to do a full test run through and deployment of the new client on the day after Boxing Day (i.e. the 27th December).

As previously stated, we will of course reimburse all lost Premium to paying users, and add more. We will give everyone some free premium, and a promo code for all that gives something really cool, i.e. not just a badge or 1 days premium.

We are really so very sorry that we couldn’t fix this before Christmas, we love Robocraft, and the community, and it’s certainly put a bit of a dampener on our Christmas.

From us, please have a wonderful Christmas Day and Boxing Day and we’ll see you with an awesome update on the 27th.

Mark Simmons, CEO, Freejam (aka MarkDesignJammer)

Early Access Review
Pros: Great concept, the ability to craft your own robot and battle other robots online is really fun. The graphics and particles are neat.

Cons: In regards to their security protocol, i uninstalled RC due to their EAC "sercurity", its anything but that. Its completely unsafe and invasive of your privacy. The program collects your online data and personal information ie. browser history, downloads. There has been numerous cases where users couldnt sign in after the EAC update as well. Honestly i think the developers should instead have a report system where users can report other players if they are using cheats or hacks.

Conclusion: RC is fun and the more items you unlock, the more you just want to keep on playing. The only suggestion i have is the eradication of EAC.

Half lego, half team deathmatch driving/flying combat.

Well executed, good use of the freemium model (pay for faster access to new toys, but it's not pay to win)

I got a lot of enjoyment out of just building lots of different weird robots.

It can get a bit grindy once you hit the higher levels, but I figure that's just trying to incentivise people to pay.

Early Access Review
A fantastic game for anyone with a creative mind. Build anything you want and throw it into the battlefield with about anything you could not expect to fight.

Maybe a giant darth vader with laser machine guns against a giant flying pirate ship? Yup it happened.

The game does however require a huge amount of grinding to unlock new types of blocks to build your robots with, which willl take a lot of time to acquire.

Pro:
- Do anything with anything! Very few limits
- Tons of different types of weapons & blocks to try out
- Active devs with tons of big updates

Con:
- Grind, grind and some more grind
- Balancing, getting hit and killed by one shot from the other side of the map is not very funny
- Expensive premium content (not by any means neccesary to play the game, but it is quite expensive anyway)

So, i have very much to tell about this, wonderful, fantastic, funny game :D. So, about the game. This a free-to-play game, its an MMO state and its still in ALPHA like wtf :D, i can't believe that they are still adding things to this game. This game has wonderful graphics, (almost any computer can run the game out). The awesome thing is, U CAN BUILD WHATEVER u want, yes, even ♥♥♥♥♥, :D.U can build: Tanks, bikes, planes, hovercrafts, plasma tanks, rail tanks, hovertanks, anything, u , can imagine, I have made like 30 tanks, cuz the possibilities (sorry for my english, im from Estonia c:). Ok, now, the things Robocraft needs, MORE MAPS FFS, only 2 types of maps? robocraft are you kidding me? it needs more beatiful and awesome worlds, like an moon map, where is lower gravity or smth, grassland, with water ETC, More maps please! <3
My older computer, it has wierd pink textures on the blocks, ONLY the blocks. The guns, pilot seat, radars, thrusters, wheelst etc don't have pink textures, only the blocks, can Robocraft fix it please? :) <3 <3 <3
As the game says, BUILD - DRIVE - FIGHT (BDF) i like to call it. you freaking create a laser shooting tank with friking hover blades and giant thrusters and friking T10 electroplates and friking giant wheels just full speed rushing at you, u can even build better xD, I really love this game because of the fun, tanks, jets,planes,HEALERS, yes, they can heal you and destroy enemies at the same time, i have played it for 20-30 hours already and im almost T5 :D... okay, i think some people have told you this, but, Please <3 increase the CPU limit :( its too small... and please also increase the RP u can gain completing levels, :c i get max 500 RP, its so f'ing low :PP Btw, about the maps, i might even help you Robocraft, but i cant like in person come to your Office, :D i live really far from you :PPPP but thats it i can say about robocraft :)

Nice game. Who liked playing with Lego as a child will love it. And like Lego, building is most of the fun, though killing other players in their self-built robots is fun, too.

You are totally free to build whatever you like, though of course there are restrictions on usability and necessities from the armoring.

This is a fun and very addicting game. It is early access, so they are still working on it, but I am surprised at how well it works and how few glitches there are for such an early build of the game.

Do you like building and being creative? Do you like blowing the crap out of robots? Do you like getting blown up yourself and then going into a rage and wanting to type in swear words into the chat but you can't because you might get banned?


Then this is the game for you!

This game is amazing (just like my name) and it is kinda like a mix of Minecraft and World of Tanks as I have seen other people say. I also like that Premium does not give people an advantage in battle, it just lets them rank up faster.

10/10 would rage over a dumb game again.
