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 #2


Hi Mechanics!

You mechanics keep sharing truly impressive creations so we felt it was time to throw off the Farmbot’s shackles and show off another bunch of Scrap Mechanic Hidden Gems! Since the last Hidden Gems post, we’ve released the logic gate and the timer, and you really seem to be making good use of them - so this month’s post is all about them. Remember, you can find all of this items on Steam Workshop, through the links included.



Scrap-A-Tat-Tat!
As we’ve added lots more sounds to the Totebot heads in the last update, we really wanted to try them out. Drum Machine Mini by Stamsite was perfect for that! This rhythm-tastic creation allows you to rattle off bass and drum loops easier than 3/4 time. But be warned. Once you start to get into the groove, it’s hard to stop playing with this creation. Are you a good Scrap Musician?
Try it out!



Tic Tac Totally Amazing
Friends are great. For running over or dropping cars on. But sometimes you want to work together to, y’know, make something impressive. And it’s not always easy to agree what to make.
Which is where this awesome Tic Tac Toe machine by Voldakk steps in. It can help you settle who’s in charge with a fun session of noughts and crosses. To prevent cheating, it even track of whose turn it is, displays who won each round on the logic gate screen and lets you know if there was a draw. Now your only problem will be stopping playing...
Try it out!



Space, Invaded
Brent Batch is back! We’ve featured his creations before (notably his mind-blowing Strandbeest-like Fancy Walker), but he’s excelled himself again. Using the new logic gates and timers, he’s built a fully functional version of an arcade classic that you might recognize, complete with a life counter, score counter, and various difficulty levels. It’s a complete game-within-game! Even the Farmbots can’t stop playing, though they get a bit mad when the flying saucer doesn’t turn up…
Try it out!



Timed Movie Camera
Coelacanths are ancient amphibious fish, living fossils. Yet one by the name of coelacanth0715 has abandoned 360 million years of sitting quietly on the ocean bottom to move to Japan and spend their time modding Scrap Mechanic instead. Their creation is an in-game camera that records a fifteen-second loop. Step in front of the sensors on the device’s back and throw some shapes. Fifteen seconds later, it’ll show them back to you on the logic gate screen. A pretty amazing creation that you should check out.
Try it out!



Cruise Control
Hailing from the Netherlands, OttoNL has made a fleet of awesome cars for Scrap Mechanic - we particularly like his two-player car, which reminds of a certain double-decker couch… but he’s surpassed himself this time with some help from his friend eriyo2000. their latest automobile is the Autonomous Bugatti Chiron. While Google, Uber and the rest spend billions researching self-driving cars, Otto and eriyo2000 has beaten them to the punch - this Bugatti drives completely by itself! All you have to do is grab a seat and flick the switch then it will take you on an adventure to unknown places. Hopefully not off a cliff.
We’ve had great fun building obstacle courses in the flat world to see how well this self-driving car handles them. OttoNL even has a ready race track for this car in his workshop.
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.
(Original creators only, please.)

Parts and Dance Update 0.1.32



Hi Mechanics!

Right now we are busy working on upgrading our game engine and doing some optimizations!
But we won’t let that stop us from giving you some fun new things to be creative with.
It’s been a while since we added some new blocks and parts, we decided to add a few new ones that we made for Survival mode recently. We think that you might enjoy these! But that’s not all! We also added a dance category to each Totebot Head with new sounds! All you scrap musicians can now make some seriously catchy dance tracks!

Here is the full list:

  • Added Light Path Block
  • Added a Pillow
  • Added Small Pipe set
  • Added Support Pillar and Support Pillar Stand.
  • Added new dance category and sounds to all Totebot Heads.
  • Fixed a bug with the Weld Tool that made it possible to weld rotated objects into each other.



Have a creative weekend!

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.

Pistons would be handy. flying mode is not very necessary if your a good building and just make a cherry picker. and a gyroscope should deffently be added then, people would use those's instead of stablizer glitching which is handy but will not work as good as a gyro.lots of things could be added to make this game the best of the best. like corner bricks for trains and coasters. floating bricks for whater if water is implimented. etc etc. i have plenty of ideas you can contact me via steam if need be. thank you for bringing such an intresting game =]


i recomend this game to any one who loves sandbox. best game of played it out beats garrys mod,minecraft,beamng. this game is limitless.

I just bought this game along with my friend. Even though it's in beta it's already amazing!
I started to play with my friend and we tried a couple of things and after my friend left my session I could barely stop playing :)

The only thing I feel is missing is some sort of a survival mode where you'd have to fight monsters, make your own living by farming (I mean like plant stuff and then make an automated farm and such)

Other than that this was the most fun I've had in a game in a while.

So I more than recommend buying this game if you like to build all sorts of machinery.

I bought this game on the first day it came out, it had loads of bugs and it was quite unoptimized, but since it was a new game i believed in the devs they'd fix them, its been 9 months that scrap mechanic has been on steam, all the bugs are still in the game, unoptimized as hell, multiplayer is still horrible. The develops just keep adding barely any new objects at the rate of a sloth. Meanwhile a game made by a single developer who made unturned (that updates the game weekly and adds new content that scrap mechanic devs add over 1-2 months) has added one whole new map that has 4x the size of the largest map (prior before that update) many, many weapons, items, bug fixes, game mechanics and vehicles to the game.

TL;DR The devs infrequently update the game and game is really buggy with horrible optimization.

This is a great game! It allows for nearly infinite creations with different levels of functionality. It can be used to build simple creations like a basic car that falls over when you try to turn it. After you get the hang of it, however you can build things like houses that transform into commercial airliners.

Here's the negative side: It gets really laggy if you build complex creations. It also has a high price tag. I wouldn't recommend it at full price.

If this game goes on sale. Get it. I give this a solid 8/10.

-allow players to create machine any form they like
-combinations can be incredible
-easy to learn (in my opinion)
-players can also play with their friends
-want to drive a masterpieces but dont know how to create one? No problem, there is workshop
-seems like a new game mode will be added in the future

-only problem is the game get a huge drop in fps when player plays with a complicated machine
-seems like the dev is working on it as well
