What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Being a one man studio my most valuable asset is time, And I need a lot of it! With early access you can help me keep working full time on Megatect and get the features you want quicker, as well as request new features or changes while everything's still fluid. This is a game about letting you build what you want after all!

I also chose early access over a crowdfunding campaign since it lets me sell you something playable, rather than promises you can't trust me to keep.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“My plan is to hopefully be able to work on Megatect for at least a year. While the main core of what I want is already working, there's a lot that can still be added. For this game the early access banner is less about reaching version 1.0 and more about letting you know that more is still to come and requests are very welcome!”

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

“While the first few builds will still introduce some main core features, after that it will mainly be adding more to work with. I will still try to do something big for version 1.0 though!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently you can build grids alone or with friends and test out how setups will work for game mode. The next couple of builds will hopefully add in a grid sharing system as well as the ability to publicly host games. After that the sky's the limit!”

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

“Possibly, depending on the popularity. Don't worry though, as the price will still remain very cheap. Since I have very little development costs I cant in good conscience charge as if I have a full team to pay.”

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

“As much as possible! Feel free to request features or changes, Weather it be as complex as changing the way a wired block reacts or requesting a different style of chair! I'm not the best programmer though so some features may still be above my skill level!

And please share any pictures or videos with me of the things you create! I can't what to see what you can do!”

About This Game

Essentially, Megatect is a multiplayer map builder without limitation!

Use a plethora of blocks, objects, and wires to create your own challenge maps, arenas, new sports, whatever you can dream up! Play solo or with friends and share grids online for others to play!

Megatect is currently in early access. Being a one man development team means updates may be slow, but much more content is definitely on the way!

As of Version 0.13:

  • You can Build grids alone or with friends via direct connect IP (currently requires port forwarding, I'm looking for a solution)
  • Build your map with a large selection of blocks to work with, and many more coming!
  • Place special blocks such as spawn points, jump pads and teleporters
  • Place Guns, Pickups, and Ammo spawners
  • Use wires to connect doors to buttons, activate platforms or lasers, and generally create puzzles!
  • Launch the grid you're working on into Game Mode and play a match with your friends!
  • Customize your character with different colors and armor pieces
  • Change the time of day, world color and game properties from the world node
  • More stuff I've forgotten to mention!

Big future plans:

  • Public hosting: Host a map you made in a public lobby and let everyone join you in your own map!
  • Grid Sharing: Upload your gird for others to play and rate
  • vehicles!
  • Waypoints for races, navigation or as an end for your challenge maps
  • team based power cores and receivers for CTF style games
  • Even more stuff I've forgotten to mention!

Be sure to check http://timedropstudios.com/megatect for recent information, And always feel free to get in touch with me and share your ideas or to tell me how broken and awful it is!

I hope you enjoy Megatect, happy building!
