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.”

Thousands of bugs related to gameplay. (such as movement)

Extremely poor matchmaking.

Pay for Premium is actually a scam because you will just get 4 useless items in crates.

Play only as a free game, never pay for it.

I found when the game first came out to be fun and enjoyable. Since then they no longe have a science tree and it is all based on luck instead. But worst of all it became a pay to win game which im not happy about. Change your ways Robocraft u used to be good.

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.

RNG reward is painful. Recycle prices are way too low. It's too hard to get the parts you want. Balance issues. Matchmaking accuracy nosedived.

Despite an overwhelming negative response, FJ isn't going to budge. One update tanked an otherwise positively reviewed game.

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.

Loot crate TRASH (looks like copy and paste with re-skin from other shooter games that have a randomized reward system) Also the game feels a bit cliché now.

FINAL PHRASE: THIS IS UTTERLY A DISAPPOINTMENT (WHOLE GAME).

You guys need to fix this! also i love how you give us free premium like thats GOING TO FIX EVERYTHING! If you are just starting out go ahead try it.

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.

TL;DR
This game was great but it turned into a pay-to-win and most players become selfish because of the new updates.You needed some skills to build bots before but you can build complete nonsense now. The removal of tiers system is just bad.

This game used to be fun when you actually needed to specialise in one class and cooperate with the whole team in order to win. You could earn money no matter what, then you could buy whatever you want for your bots and upgrade them.

However, with the recent updates (the implementation of crates system and the ability to put mutiple classes of weapons onto one bot), people can just spam craps onto one bot and rush to the top of the scoreboard in order to get some slightly better ♥♥♥♥. Most players become selfish and only focus on scores because only the top player on the scoreboard can get the protonium crate (better ♥♥♥♥). Also, you can't earn anything except crates and XP from battles (AKA no money and crate is basically everyting).

The worst part is that even if you can get the protonium crate, you can still get cheap ♥♥♥♥, because the items in it are distributed randomly and not performance-based. Normal players seldom get what they want from crates. You can still buy stuff, but they changed the in-game cash to robit which can only be obtained by destroying other stuff you own and it only gives very little amount of it, you can only get back 10-25% of what the original value is (you could get back 50% of the original value in the old system). Players can buy crates that cost real money and try to get what they want (even if they can't get what they want they can still destroy those buttloads of stuff from those buttloads of crates and buy whatever they want). This makes it really hard for new players who don't want to spend real money to upgrade their bots to higher level. And old players (me) usually bought everything they need from the good ol' days and good ol' system, which is extremely unfair to new players.

The removal of pilot seat is also a really big mistake. The pilot seat allowed players to make something creative but reasonable because you needed to build something that could protect the pilot seat (basically you needed skills to build something). Now you can just build something completely ridiculous since there isn't a pilot seat anymore.

I don't want to make this review too long so I will just say the removal of tiers system is just a really really poor decision.
