What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“RXE is a game centered around engineering and design, and we plan to use community feedback in future development to create the best game possible. Early Access allows for us to simultaneously develop and share RXE as it grows, giving players the tools, content, and freedom they want for engineering and design.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate that RXE will be in Early Access until Spring 2018 (~10 months), but this may change depending on the progress of the game.”

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

“Much of RXE's future will be determined by the community. With that being said, we hope to add more tools and parts for building and programming, more challenges for single-player, and more features for the community - ability to share robots and programs, as well as a level editor. We hope RXE will be a fun game and a powerful tool for design.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, players are able to build robots and write programs to control the robots. There is a single-player challenge mode and a sandbox mode which supports single-player and multiplayer. There is a fair amount of content and tools for creating robots, but we are still adding content at a fairly rapid pace. In addition, we hope to improve RXE's core game mechanics, allowing players to work more efficiently and do more within the game.”

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

“We believe that RXE's price at any given time should reflect its current value (regardless of future plans). With this in mind, we will be launching RXE in Early Access at a low price and raising the price over time as new content is added to match the game's value.”

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

“RXE was designed from the ground up to "grow" with its community. Some aspects of the game have already been planned out, but we will pay attention to community feedback and suggestions in future development, especially with regards to specific content.”

RXE Version 0.1.2 Released

Hi everyone,

Version 0.1.2 of RXE is now live. Here are some of the more significant changes:

  • Improved wheels + physics handling
  • Got Steam achievements and stats working properly
  • UI/controls improvements for Linux
  • Bugfixes

Some of my plans for the near future include adding control flow (if/while/for) programming stuff, sensors (gyroscope/accelerometer?), and localization (mit Deutsch und Englisch).

Of course, community feedback is welcome, and I've taken into account what I've heard so far. Version 0.2.0 should be coming out within the next few weeks, and at that point I'll start reaching out and trying to spread word about the game. We have big plans for RXE, and I hope to detail those in a post sometime soon.
