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!”

Raft Announcement

Hey Mechanics!

We have a very special announcement for you today! We’re delighted to reveal that Axolot Games will be publishing popular survival game Raft, coming to Steam Early Access in 2018!

If you’re not one of the many, many players who’ve experienced Raft already via itch.io, allow us to explain: Raft is a unique survival game in which players are thrown in the middle of a treacherous ocean with only a simple raft protecting you from the dangers of the sea! Playing alone or with friends, players must gather debris, scavenge reefs and grow crops to survive and build their own floating home. Oh, and be wary of the man-eating sharks!

Check out the latest trailer for Raft here!

Our relationship with Raft creators Redbeet Interactive began a few months ago when they invited us to fly over to their studio in Gotland, a small island outside of Stockholm. We were really impressed with their passion and vision for Raft and the two teams quickly developed a strong friendship. After all, we both love making survival games with building mechanics!

It soon made a lot of sense to become partners and invest in Redbeet Interactive, which we believe will ensure that players get to see the full Raft experience come to life, with all of the exciting features and ideas they have planned for the game fully realized.

Of course, it’s important to emphasize that because Raft and Scrap Mechanic are being worked on two separate teams, this partnership and exchange of ideas will only strengthen both games as we continue to work hard on bringing Survival Mode to Scrap Mechanic!

Finally, to celebrate today’s announcement we have a few goodies for players of both games! Scrap Mechanic players will receive the Raft Shark Mount (careful… it can bite), while RAFT players can look forward to receiving the Scrap Mechanic Duckie to proudly decorate their floating home… if they manage to catch him!

Make sure to follow all the latest Raft devblogs at www.axolotgames.com

We also managed to sneak in a few fixes for Scrap Mechanic in this update.
Here is the full update list!
  • Added Raft Shark Mount.
  • Fixed an error with things on bearings etc when merging static bodies.
  • World corruption fix.

See you soon mechanics!

Devblog 12 is here!

Greetings Mechanics!

What’s that coming over the hill? Is it a dev blog? Why yes, it most certainly is!
Some time has passed since our last post and the team here has been extremely busy clanking our collective hammers at some exciting new content. Our super-powered new game engine has allowed us to accelerate forward at max speed and we’re excited to share some of the results of that added torque in this update today!

As usual, we’d like to kick off by again thanking you, the incredible Scrap Mechanic community, for your amazing support. We’re continuingly amazed to see your fantastic creations and can’t wait to see what comes next!

Now, let’s take a look together at some exciting new stuff…

- Spud Guns!
When things get heated in Survival Mode, Mechanics need reach no further than the brand new, fully-loaded Spud Gun!
In Survival Mode, your creations will always be the best form of defence against those pesky farmbots. However, when you’re on foot and your creations are out of reach, the Spud Gun (aka Potato Gun) is an exciting new tool at Mechanics’ disposal.
Furthermore, right know we’re testing a farming system (more on that later) where players will be able to harvest their own ammo! This opens up a lot of new and interesting gameplay that we’re sure you’ll find very a-peel-ing! We’re also playing with ways of attaching potato guns on your creations, for example on bearings. How s-mashing is that? (We’ll stop now).

- Massive Warehouses!
If there’s a more exciting wording pair than, ‘massive warehouse’, us Mechanics sure don’t know about it! When we first started work on buildings for Survival Mode, our plan was to construct them out of building parts and to do our best to ensure that they were absolutely as huge as possible. During the process of creating these buildings we discovered that in order to make them as large as we originally imagined, it meant we wouldn’t be able to introduce them with destructible exteriors due to technical limitations.
Ultimately, this seemed like a fair compromise to achieve our main ambitions and we discovered that the decision actually enabled a lot of fun and tense gameplay! Inside these buildings, players no longer have the option of escaping through a hole in the wall when things go sour! To be clear, everything inside the warehouse can still be destroyed.
We absolutely intend to have fully destructible building exteriors in the game, but on a slightly smaller scale. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the different gameplay these larger buildings introduce!

- The Sound of Survival!
As many of you will know, here at Scrap Mechanic HQ we are currently very focussed on fleshing out and improving Survival Mode.
One of the things we really wanted to enhance was the mood when exploring the Survival world. This was obviously less of a priority when experimenting in Creative mode, but in Survival we really wanted the music to play a larger role in creating a deeper atmosphere for players.
Today we’re delighted to share a snippet of one of the Survival night tunes, which we hope will evoke a feeling of loneliness and isolation. Spooky!

- New Animation!
With new features comes new animation!
Since the last dev blog we’ve been quietly working on fresh animations to improve the quality of Survival Mode. Included in our list of revamps is the completely rebuilt crouch walk animation, a revamped hammer swing animation and an awesome new sprint, which you can see above. Much better than the old ‘fast walk’, right?

As you can see, we also changed the standing pose to a slightly more heroic stance. Inspiring stuff, we’re sure you’ll agree!

Oh! and we will let this one be a hint.

- Crafting System!
It took some time to get the Scrap Mechanic crafting system exactly how we wanted, but we’re delighted to announce that it’s finally in a place we’re really happy with! It was very important to us that our take on this mechnaic wasn’t just your regular loading bar crafting system. We wanted it to enable creativity where Mechanics could automate crafting chains and build their own crafting factories. We hope our Crafting System will be something a lot of you mechanics will really appreciate and use to light your creative spark. It’s only code right now, but we should have some visuals to show you by the time the next dev blog rolls around. We’re very excited!

- Exo-Suit!
Since the Mechanic is stranded on a farming planet, it makes sense that he’d wear an Exo-Suit, right? Well that’s what we were thinking, anyway, and so we went ahead and built a cool new outfit that will enable all kinds of fun improvements for player movement.
We won’t get into too much detail at the moment, since we’re still experimenting, but the general concept behind the Exo-Suit is to offer small perks such as a higher jump, increased armour or the ability to demolish scrap faster. What do you think? Let us know!

And speaking of suits…

- New Outfits!
What would a Scrap Mechanic devblog be without showing off a new set of threads for players to don?
As many of you know, alongside Survival Mode we will be adding outfits for the new character customization feature; Hats, gloves, shoes and shirts can all be mixed and matched separately! We are super stoked to get this in to your hands (and on to your bodies) when Survival comes out. We’ve also made a ton of cringey t-shirts, which is just how we like ‘em!

- Wildlife!
God’s beautiful creatures are about to invade the Survival world!
Take our word for it: It really does make the environment feel more alive when mischievous birds flutter around and interact with your creations. It’s perhaps not the most important feature in the game, but hopefully you’ll agree these new critters add a meaningful layer of detail to the world. And if you disagree, you can always smack them with your hammer… Though we don’t condone that.

- When is Survival coming out?
When we released Scrap Mechanic we put the foundations in place. Now we’re busily crafting the gameplay systems and features that will hopefully make our game an even more satisfying and unique experience for fans.
Because we’re determined to hit those quality goals, nailing down an exact release date for Survival Mode feels premature right now, but rest assured that we’ll put it in your hands as soon as possible, once we’re satisfied that it’s up to our standards.
We know a lot of Mechanics don't like to wait, but we’re confident you’ll be pleased with the results when you finally get to experience them for yourselves. Hang in there! It will be worth the wait.

Phew. And that’s it for this time mechanics! Thanks for all the love and support and see you next time!
We also have a really exciting announcment coming soon!

Stay tuned mechanics!

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.
