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!”

Update 0.2.2

Hi Mechanics!
This time, we’ve been focusing on continuing to optimize the game further. We’ve spent a lot of time listening to what improvements and additions you all wanted to see and are pleased to say that we managed to add some of your requests in this update! We’ve also polished up the thrusters and added some fun new parts that we know you’ll get creative with.
Let’s go over things in more detail.

So you may have noticed that we have a sink and a toilet, but we couldn’t help thinking that when it came to bathrooms, something was missing. That’s right, we’ve added a bathtub. We all know you work very hard on your creations, so we thought you’d earned yourselves a bit of R&R. As we’re very generous hosts, when you choose to sit in a bath, your mechanic will be treated to a nice relaxing bubble bath. That is of course, unless you’ve decided to go all 2bath2furious and attach thrusters to it so you can fly it full speed across the terrain. Remember, even wash-time can be fun-time.

-Follow cameras
Whenever we read through Scrap Mechanic discussions, we always come across requests for a camera that follows when your vehicle turns. Well, happy belated (or super early) new year people, because you’ve now got yourself a follow camera as well as a strict follow camera that also follows vertically. You can set the camera in the settings or change it while seated with the Ctrl key! We really like it, so please give it a go and let us know what you think!

-Toggle Hotbar
As master mechanics ourselves, we know how annoying it can be when you fill up the hotbar and it takes that little bit longer to access everything. Well, now you can rotate between three hotbars at any time, simply by pressing Alt - Q and Alt - 1/2/3 for direct access. We’ve seen a few of you asking for this so we hope it will come in handy when you’re busy building creations with a lot of different parts!

While you all know that the new engine is finally in the game, we still feel that there is a lot we can do to optimize the game further. As a first step, we’ve made some rendering optimizations that dramatically improve slowdowns when placing blocks on really large creations. We’re happy to say that it works a lot smoother now. Remember though, this is just the tip of the optimization iceberg, so strap yourself in, because there’s a whole lot more where that came from!

-Thruster fire
Thanks to our lovely new particle engine, we can finally implement the kind of particle effects we always imagined for Scrap Mechanic. As we’ve been so impressed with this engine, our plan is to redo all the particles in the game from scratch, bringing them up to the same standard of visual quality that we’re aiming for with the upcoming survival mode.
The first glimpse of these nice new particles in action is in the brand new thruster fire. Thanks to the addition of dynamic lighting, your thrusters will not only look a lot more realistic, but they will even trigger dust when close to the ground.
Like all good mechanics, sometimes we also have to go back and give older parts some extra love.

We noticed a lot of players are using pipes as mugs when they build houses.
It’s creative and it’s how a true scrap mechanic should drink his coffee. However, as much as we like our beverages piping hot, we thought we’d treat you and add a proper mug as a building part. This one comes with a symbol that you might have seen before. What could it stand for? Hopefully it will all make sense in Survival mode...... hmm.

Please keep in mind that updates like this do not affect the work we do on survival mode. These updates are made to give you some fun new things to play with while we work on survival mode and bigger features.

Up next we will be dishing out the details on the official block mod support.
We are also working on a very special new interactive part that we have a hunch some of you might be excited about.
More on that later.

Thanks for reading mechanics, that’s it for now!

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.
