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!”

Devblog 8 is here!

Hey Mechanics!

First, thank you! Thank you all - the Mechanics that have been sticking with us since the start and all you new Mechanics. It’s pretty awesome to see how quickly the Scrap Mechanic community has grown - you Mechanics are the best game dev fuel ever! We especially hope that you like the Weld Tool that was just recently released - all feedback on that is hugely encouraged, so we can make it as good as possible.

Anyway, another great month has gone by with a lot of great progress here at the Scrap Mechanic HQ so it’s finally time to give you Mechanics an update on what we’ve been cooking!

- Creation Saving, Loading and Steam Workshop
We are happy to see that many Mechanics have requested a way of saving creations
so they can be used in different worlds and shared through Steam Workshop. We thought hard about this, and decided that the best way to do it was by adding a feature to the lift. So, this is how it’ll work. Pressing E on the lift will open a display that lets you save or load a creation as well as upload it to Steam Workshop. You will also be able to delete anything that is on the lift so you don't have to delete a creation piece by piece. Another useful trick will be that you can see the number and type of pieces making up any creation, so you’ll know exactly what parts you need to build your favorite vehicle in Survival mode.
We are really excited about this! The lift just got even better!

- It’s Logical, Captain
Are you tired of not being able to close a door with two different buttons? Are you bored of running the long way round to open a gate? Have you got stuck in your house? Hey, we’ve all been there. No worries, the Logic Gate Block is in the works and it’s awesome. It will let you easily create everything from simple button setups to some really advanced creations.
Here is the first look at the Logic Gate. We want to make sure that it is easy to learn and use before we release this mighty cube.

- Speaking in Tongues
For all you Mechanics who would love to play the game in your mother tongue, we will soon be adding a few new languages to the game. Some of the languages that will be added are French, Spanish, German, Russian, Chinese and Japanese. If that’s not one of yours, don’t be shy - let us know what language you would like to see in the game (But no Farmbot language since it’s impossible for our fragile human brains to understand.)

- Our own engine
Not everything we do is fun. Sometimes you just have to fix things so the game runs better. Scrap Mechanic was originally made with OGRE as the rendering engine. For an open source engine, it’s doing a great job. But after making us yell bad words at the screen a few times we decided to make Scrap Mechanic run fully on our own engine. We call this masterpiece… hmm… We don't know yet. Give us some name suggestions! Our engine gives us full control over the graphics optimization, which will save us a lot of time. It will also let the game run on Intel graphics cards like the 530 and 520, which some players have had issues with.

- Timer Traps
Have you ever wanted to have something activate some time after a sensor has been triggered? The Timer Block will let you decide when something will work, making it possible to make more timed transformations. The timer block will also be very handy together with the logic gate. To be honest, we’re expecting you guys to make some really unpleasant traps with this one once Survival is out.

- Modded for Survival
Oh! The cool stuff we are working on right now for the survival mode. It’s so cool. It’s painful to not be able to show anything yet. But we want it to be a surprise for later. And the Farmbots won’t let us. So we are holding on to all this awesomeness. We promise it will be worth the wait! Oh, the Farmbots are letting us say just one thing. The survival mode is being made like a mod from the ground up using Lua language. This is so all you Mechanics with passion and talent for creating stuff can get in there and start modding. It will be awesome! We’ll let you know how to get involved with this as soon as possible.

I think that’s it from us. Don’t worry, we’ll be back soon. And, until then, keep scrapping!

Patch notes 0.1.28

Hey Mechanics!

A new update is here.
This time, we have a big sound update for you.
Since release, we felt that the sounds were not as responsive and satisfying
as we wanted them to be. So we decided to give the sounds some extra love.
The collisions are more noticeable now and we even added sounds to sliding objects.
Your creations will sound better now!

We also took the time to fix a bunch of other things.

Here are the patch notes:

  • Major collision audio rework.
  • Shape building is no longer canceled when other players update the same creation.
  • Players can now switch between multiplayer and single player without restarting the game.
  • Weld tool performance and interaction fixes.
  • Q and Escape can now close Paint tool GUI.
  • Various Connect tool fixes.
  • Stability fixes.
  • Various other bugfixes.

Keep in mind that small updates like this
do not affect the work we do on optimization, bigger requested features and survival mode.

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.

A fun and simple sandbox game, but with a certain beauty to it. At first glance, you think it as a non-blocky version of minecraft but it's not. Scrap Mechanic is a brilliant game with endless possiblites, but with a grain of limitation. This game deserves it's praise and love

And its Still in development!

Very poorly optimised as of date of review. Simplistic graphics (whilst which are fine for the game and nice enough) should not tax a system to the extent it does.
Currently still very limited items. Seems to be taking an age.

Started a new game.
Attempted to build some things from the manual.
I place a block, woops, made a mistake, try to remove it - Nothing. Try again, it removes the block.
Point at the intended spot only to have the tool go remove happy. POP gone POP gone POP gone
Restart the program. Delete old save and start new.
Deja Vu

Great concept but currently unplayable.

Scrap Mechanic has ducks in it, cute little ducks that appear to be standing on Reese's peanut butter cups. I also like Reese's peanut butter cups but not in the same way as the ducks..I would not eat the little ducky's they are my friends, I do not eat my friends.

I can be very creative in this game I can put the ducks everywhere and have as many as I want. I can paint them different colors and sort them by color or mix them all together they do not mind.

The ducks are very cute and friendly so I am never alone I can always place a friendly ducky near by and have a friend with me wherever I am.

This game has multiplayer so other people can come and look at my ducks. We build houses for them and help them develop a prosperous community. We can share our ideas about how to make the lives of our ducks better and build all the things we think our ducky's need.

I have learned a lot about people by the way they treat my ducky's I have found all of them to be good and kind in my worlds so now I have many new friends. I still like my ducks but I have learned that people are better at being friends then ducks are and if one of my ducks gets deleted or lost because some one else thinks I have too many ducks its OK because I can always place another duck, but I am not able to place a replacement friend. I do not have any replacements in my inventory.

I am very happy with my little ducks, if you like ducks too you will like this game...

But if you want to make friends and keep them don't try to replace them with ducks.

It's a fun game, no seriously
But I'll do a run down

Fun as all hell
Updated frequently
Fun to play with friends If you have friends unlike me
Endless Posibilities
Great Soundtrack
Useful tools
Loads of frickin' blocks
Can also be played with a potato computer like mine

Can get boring sometimes
Not much things to do

So in my conclusion it's a pretty good game, worth the £15

i forgot to add it's for all genders ♥♥♥♥!

Build swasticas. Launch them into the skybox. They get stuck.
Forever have a spinning Nazi symbol in the sky with the gay pride flag on it.
10/10 would question morals again.

Scrap Mechanic is one of those games you can't deny does what it's meant to do very well. Here are some PRO'S, CON's and CRITICISMS of the game Scrap Mechanic:

-Very small download size (currently <1GB)
-Beautiful worlds and generally on-par-or-better visuals
-Innovative building mechanics that make combining simple machines into complex working constructions a breeze
-Online multiplayer

Before I start Cons I would like to mention the game is in early release and is continually being added to and improved
-World sharing and blueprint saving nonexistant
-Online multiplayer is limited to friends, no active public servers
-Multi funtion outputs are nonexistant (IE button 1 rotates left and button 2 rotates right)
-No form of "wireless" input available (you must be the driver/passenger to control the construction)

For what I paid for Scrap Mechanic, and what it has delivered, I offer up this rating:

*********** 8/10 *************

Endless possiblities with this engine and I'm looking forward to review this game after it has gone through some further development.

To the developers:
Amazing work so far with scrap mechanic, I'm excited to see what the future holds for this game and for you as a development company; BEST OF LUCk, and GOOD WORK !

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.

I think this game is great for everyone, not just for those with engineering or imaginative minds. The handbook explains how to build basic things which you can expand on to make your own. This game is also hilarious. The way the character bobs and sways around in an unbalanced vehicle makes me giggle. The game has only a creative mode at the moment but it's still quite enjoyable. I can't wait for a survival-type mode to be implemented. Highly recommended!

Honestly for a game that is still in devlopment, I still have way more fun with this than any other game of this type. The wiring is smooth, the driving is very customizable, and the textures look great for development stages.
