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?

“Early Access essentially puts us in dialogue with the community and the players. We want Besiege to be easy to access, and we would like to involve and address player feedback as the game progresses. Also, we really love to see how far everyone can push the building mechanics, and we want to be able to respond to the crazy methods people are discovering that we weren't even aware of!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We aren't entirely sure how long it will take to release the game, our initial estimate put the release between 1.5 and 2 years but due to the success of Besiege we’ve been able to greatly expand the scope of the game with far more ambitious features than were initially possible. We are currently two years in and we’re estimating another year of development until release.”

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

“The full version will contain more levels, in a variety of environments, as well as more blocks, building tools and other larger scale features that we’re not quite ready to talk about just yet!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version contains 38 levels, comprising the kingdoms of Ipsilon, Tolbrynd & Valfross. There are three sand-box levels to test creations and in any given level you can disable all limitations, allowing for experimentation. There is also a time-dilation dial, allowing the game to be viewed in slowmotion, or at 2X the normal speed. The game contains a broad suite of building tools and pieces, including flying pieces, flamethrowers, cannons, contractible springs, axles, detachable joints, explosives and much more. You can also save and load machines in any given level, as well as share them online via the Steam Workshop.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We are going to scale the price with the amount of content available. So as more features, game modes and levels are added we will add to the cost incrementally. We hope that players will feel they paid the appropriate price for the amount of content available at any given stage of the games development.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are already being surprised by what people are constructing and discovering. It is quite amazing, and we want to expand and address features that the community finds or wants. For example, some members of the community are building an immense Siege Walker type thing – we never even realised this was possible. We want to facilitate such creativity, so we will be constantly looking toward what everyone is doing!”

Update V0.6.0-6878 - Multiverse Bugfixes & Experimental Branch update



Hello Everyone!

Today we’ve got another update for you as well as a sneak peak at what we’re working on for the next one!

Today’s update primarily consists of bug fixes for the Multiverse, but also a couple of new primitive objects for use in the level editor! For a full list of changes/fixes see the changelog at the bottom of this post.



Please note that a change has been made to variables which may break some logic setups. Starting a Variable dependent event that is already running will restart the event. This is intended and prevents a lot of problems that would otherwise occur.

We also wanted to take this opportunity to talk about the next update that we’re working on, which is currently available on the experimental steam branch. The next update will contain a set of advanced building tools, another heavily requested feature by the community!

This addition will bring several features allowing greater customization in the construction of your war machines and hopefully making the whole process quicker and easier. Including but not limited to; multiple block selection, block duplication, custom block rotation and much more!



Please note that the new construction features will not include the ability to scale blocks or machines, you will have to do this with a mod or manually within the machine’s .bsg file.
The advanced building tools are also disabled by default to avoid confusing newer players and can be turned on in the options menu.



We’re working on a few other features at the moment, which aren’t currently in the experimental build and may or may not make it into the next update. We’re not quite ready to talk about them yet so stay tuned for future posts!

That’s all for now folks but we’ll have more for you in the near future!

Cheers,
Von

CHANGES
Added ability to toggle off texture of simple primitives

About This Game

Besiege is a physics based building game in which you construct medieval siege engines and lay waste to immense fortresses and peaceful hamlets. Build a machine which can crush windmills, wipe out battalions of brave soldiers and transport valuable resources, defending your creation against cannons, archers and whatever else the desperate enemies have at their disposal. Create a trundling behemoth, or take clumsily to the skies, and cause carnage in fully destructible environments. Ultimately, you must conquer every Kingdom by crippling their castles and killing their men and livestock, in as creative or clinical a manner as possible!
