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?

“The time has finally come for more mechanics to join the game! After a few years in development, we finally have a good portion of the game foundation in place. The game now offers a lot of creative fun in its current state.
We’re now at a point where we need your feedback so that we can evolve the game in the best possible direction – together.

Scrap Mechanic is unique creative building game that allows you to build amazing machines and creations, and we want to see how far the players can push the game; this’ll enable us to take notes and make improvements.

We aim to keep a good experience trough the Early Access period as we add new building pieces, features and an awesome survival mode.

Alpha access includes the full game on release as well as all coming updates!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Since we take the feedback we get from the community incredibly seriously, our workflow has to be flexible and intuitive which makes it more difficult to give a exact final release date. We need to make sure we have enough time to improve the game with the feedback we collect and make sure that the survival mode will be as awesome as our mechanics would come to expect.”

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

“Now that we have the Creative Mode in place, we’re going to work on the ambitious Survival Mode. Mechanics can look forward to a huge new open world to explore with buildings that can be scavenged and taken apart, a day and night cycle, deadly enemies to fight, weapons and explosives that can be used in many creative ways, further character customization, new awesome building parts and tools and an improved multiplayer function. Last but not least, there’ll of course be improvements based on all the feedback we collect. There are more things in the pipeline for Survival Mode, but we’d like to keep some stuff as a surprise.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“A big part of the game’s core features are already in place. The current version has a robust Creative Mode with over 100 unique pieces to build with. A bunch of powerful tools and an easy-to-use handbook will help you get started with building, so we think you’ll be getting everything a player needs to create the most fantastic machines and creations together with their friends.

We ask you to bear in mind that Scrap Mechanic is still in the process of being made and things will change between now and the final release, and that even though the game is very playable in its current state, bugs and occasional crashes can happen as we continue developing the game.”

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

“Scrap Mechanic will have a lower price during Early Access compared to the final full release. However Alpha Access includes the full game upon release in addition to all coming updates!”

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

“We frequently communicate through Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and forums. We post videos and devblogs to keep the players up to date on our latest progress. We take in as much feedback as we possibly can from our awesome players, but the sheer amount of comments and posts mean that it’s not always possible for us to respond individually all the time. We focus on everything we receive that’s constructive and helpful, and we keep adding to and improving the game based on the feedback we collect.

The Community is hugely important to us: after all, we’re making this game for you!”

Workshop Hidden Gems


Hi Mechanics!

The Farmbots are keeping us working hard over here at Scrap HQ, but we’re not the only ones. You’ve all been busy too and we keep seeing you all sharing some amazing creations. So it’s time to dig into the Scrap Mechanic workshop for some hidden gems!


The Fancy Walker
One of the inspirations for Scrap Mechanic before the development started was Theo Jansen’s incredible Strandbeests. They’re delicate automata that use air pressure to create believably organic movement. With that in mind, it’s amazing to see how well this Strandbeest was re-created in Scrap Mechanic by top creator Brent Batch. We could spend hours just watching this beautiful thing walk.
Try it out!



The Mobile Music Box
Feeling down? Is your day a bit of a bummer? Did your flying contraption escape into the sunset? Well, we have the right thing to cheer you up! Gum The Mechanic has built a music box on wheels that plays a jaunty, happy tune. Cruising around with this vehicle while jamming along puts a big smile on our faces - and we think it should do the same for you.
Try it out!



Have A Banana
What could be so special about a wooden banana? I mean, you can’t even eat it, unless you like spending a week picking splinters out of your tongue. That’s what we thought until we found… this banana.
Luap the Great has managed to build a very clever and compact… banana. We’re not going to spoil it for you. Just subscribe, hit the switch and stand back! You won’t regret it.
Try it out!



Farmbot: The Prerevengeance
We don’t know how it happened. Someone must have left a door open. Whatever the reason, the survival mode isn’t even out yet but the Farmbots have got out and are invading Steam Workshop. Mechanic Fabiano Luiz seems to have spotted one, which he’s captured and uploaded.
This Farmbot is an agricultural giant who tromps over the land like something out of Transformers and will even open his mouth when you get too close. The last we saw of Fabiano was in this short movie when he encountered this mechanical monster. Are you brave enough to subscribe?
Try it out!



Hello Dolly(cam)
Eru is one clever mechanic. He’s built a lot of impressive things, from helicopters and flying lawnmowers to the Iron Throne itself. This creation is much more practical - a camera dolly vehicle for taking steady moving videos. If you want to make a movie showing off your latest creations, then this cunning vehicle produces impressive cinematic sweeping shots. It’s easy to operate - watch this video for more details and some inspiration.
Try it out!


Have you built a interesting creation that you would like us to check out? Don’t hesitate, send us a workshop link to our Twitter.

Help us test some fixes

Hi Mechanics

Time for another beta test. We have made a bunch of small fixes in this one.
For example being able to see the mechanics names above the head when playing multiplayer. We also noticed Mechanics often slipping off the lift when they try to lift themselves up. Now the Mechanic will have a better grip when standing on the lift.

Here is the full list:

  • Fixed a bug where the player could not remove connections from a seat with 10 connections.
  • The lift will no longer push the player off when raised.
  • Fixed a Weld Tool bug.
  • Added smooth camera zooming.
  • New Sledgehammer cursor appears when within range of something you can hit.
  • Added preview for tools in the inventory.
  • Added text messages for the Radio; "This Radio is connected to a Button/Switch/Sensor".

If you like to help us test it out, you can do so now by following these steps:

About This Game

PLEASE NOTE: We’re still at work on Scrap Mechanic! Get started right away in Creative Mode, and get ready for Survival Mode coming in a later update.

Welcome to the machine-filled creative paradise of Scrap Mechanic, a multiplayer
sandbox game with imagination and ingenuity at its core.



Scrap Mechanic is an all-new creative multiplayer sandbox game which drops you right into a world where you quite literally engineer your own adventures! Choose from the 100+ building parts you have at your disposal and create anything from crazy transforming vehicles to a house that moves. You’re even able to team up with your friends to create amazing things together: in Scrap Mechanic, you’re the master creator of anything you can imagine!

Here’s the deal: you’re a robot maintenance mechanic en route to your posting on a fully-automated agriculture planet. Your job is to take care of the worker robots as they work the land, sending the food they produce to the metropolitan planets. Thing is, close to touchdown your spacecraft loses control and crashes, but since you’ve got luck on your side (erm…), you survive! You’re stranded though, and at first glance you find that not everything’s quite as it should be. The Farmbots working the fields have gone crazy, and now there’s only one way to stay alive: using your quick thinking, your creativity and your wily knack of turning your surroundings to your advantage.

Let’s pop the hood and see what’s on offer right now:

  • Creative Mode!
    An unlimited amount of parts are yours to play with! Build free on your choice of terrain without limitations or the threat of death.

  • Gender!
    Choose between playing as a male or female mechanic.

  • Parts ‘n’ Blocks!
    Scrap Mechanic comes loaded with over 100 parts. Some with unique shapes and sizes, but all giving you the power to basically create anything you want.

  • Interactive Parts!
    The interactive parts that let you put your creations in motion represent the very best and most exciting parts of Scrap Mechanic! With a wide range of parts and an array of functions from gas and electric engines to thrusters, sensors and buttons, you’ll never be bored with the tools at your disposal!

  • Handbook!
    Your Mechanics’ Handbook is your trusty educational friend, with you from the start and dying to be read! Flip trough its pages at your leisure to learn the basics of building in a easy way.

  • Connect Tool!
    The tool that brings everything together and makes it all happen. A must for any true mechanic!

  • Lift!
    Lightens the load when building creations with physics in mind. Let it lift you – and your creations – higher!

  • Sledgehammer!
    Whack loose parts and watch them fly. Smacking physics around with the hammer is great fun.

i hate this game for one reason: the weld tool. i find it very annoying that for things like tank tracks its still impossible to build because you cant weld the craft to itself so it would never stick. I have been trying for around 3 hours now trying to weld 2 sets of wheels together on both sides and i simply cant.

Ahhh...
Scrap Mechanic

Things That Will Happen Within Scrap Mechanic:
  • You will build stuff
  • You will have high hopes for said stuff
  • You will then realize that you have no ♥♥♥♥ing clue what the ♥♥♥♥ you are doing because the game is more advanced than humanity itself
  • You will eventually succeed in building your creation, only to tear it down and start the process over with something else
Scrap Mechanic VS The Average Early Access Game:

Scrap Mechanic The Average Early Access Game
Breathtaking graphics Made using Microsoft Paint
Runs great (sometimes has lag spikes, and crashes rarely, which is 100% acceptable this early in the game's life span) Crashes every 6-8 seconds
Constantly updated with new, rich features Gets a bugfix every few months

WARNING:
  • People suffering from attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder may experince a sudden change their attention span, as this game has been known to be as addictive as crack cocaine itself.
  • Anyone under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol may notice that their high has been greatly improved by this game's amazing content.
  • Women who are pregnant or nursing should consult with their physician and obstetrician/gynecologist, as this game may be too much to take in all at once for your "little one".

so yes, with only 11.8 hours of playtime at the time of this reveiw, I can still safely say that this game is one of the best games ever, and will only improve from here.

so buy it already

you lazy lump

I Loooooooooooove this game. I can build almost anything I dream of, and quite easily as well. Even on my laptop at 15 FPS this game is incredibly fun. The game is easy to learn, but some things can take a little bit of time to completely work out. This game reminds me a lot of Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts on the XBox 360 (Which nobody liked... Except me) BUT ABOUT A MILLION TIMES BETTER!!! Think of this game as lego, but it won't hurt if you stand on it, and is a whole lot cooler.

Pros: Very fun game, good to play with friends, create scenarios that you dreamed of.
Easy to get hands on,
useful tools
beautiful world.

Cons: There aren't really bad about the game, it's still in development, just some suggestions.
World is kinda small
Only one map is available(one with mountains and another flat)
Can be laggy sometimes but overall not a problem

It's a really good game, worth buying it and play with friends :)

Its a good game i really like it so far.

There are some bugs here and there that makes the game less fun
Like here is a list.
1. Password system does not work anyone in your friends list could join your server, annoying as hell...
2. The lag is real sometimes when there are some vechiles around or not on the lift, Fix this before launching survival cuz this makes the gameplay not fun.
3. Thats actually it fixing those 2 issues makes the game for every user alot more better :D I give the game from now on a 7/10 With the fixes 10/10.

I really really like this game, I think it has lots of potential, the concept is amazing and it is not expensive at all compared to the price it is really worth. The only thing that I really really hope this game will have is vr support [HTC Vive]. I think it will help with entertainment and for my youtube channel and other youtubers' channels.
