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?

“Robocraft X is a series of experimental prototypes testing new technology and physics that were not available when we first created Robocraft. The reason we are releasing on Early Access totally free is to begin to build a community of players who can help us develop this game with their feedback and support.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate that we will last at least twelve months in Early Access.”

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

“The current version of Robocraft features several core components which will be expanded upon during development. Our vision is to pursue the following planned features

  • Ability to hop in and drive your creations
  • Machine building with friends! Pit your machines against each other or play cooperatively in your own locally hosted sandbox
  • Ability to edit machines while they are moving, adding and removing parts during simulation, even when playing online
  • Compete online with other players
  • Building and sharing maps with the community

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We are currently in our 2nd Experiment. Players can control a character in third person set within a first iteration of a background environment. They can build machines and adjust the gravity. Experiment 02 includes the following features

[h1]Parts[/h1]
  • Cube
  • Hinge
  • Medium hinge
  • Motor
  • Medium Motor
  • Axle
  • Medium Axle
  • Battery
  • Tyre

[h1]Character[/h1]
Leo is our only playable character so far. he can run and jump in simulation mode, but while in edit mode, he can also fly by double tapping space.

[h1]Environment[/h1]
First iteration draft of an environment”

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

“Robocraft X will always be free to play. There will be optional micro transaction purchases but these will always be fair and not pay to win.”

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

“We are currently responding to as many comments as possible via our social channels on Reddit and Twitter and will be regularly communicating further news and information via Steam forums and news. Because Robocraft X is not yet a game and may never become one, it is vital to read feedback after players try out our experiments to see if we should continue further with this.”

Experiment 03 Hotfix 2

Hello Experimenters,



We've released a second hotfix which addresses some of the issues with Motors not performing as expected. This mainly fixes contraptions that were not able to generate enough torque to spin heavier parts. We'll be making more tweaks to the Motors in the next experiment as well so look forward to those!

Experiment 03 Hotfix

Hello Experimenters,

We’ve released a small hotfix for Experiment 03. Below is a full list of the changes and bug fixes.



Part Count Increase
As those of you who follow the Reddit page will know, we often highlight amazing community creations that genuinely impress us with a “Community Highlight” flair. Some of these have been built with the standard block limit and some have modified their client to bypass this limit.

While we have no issues with players modding the game at this stage, as the limit is mostly there as a safeguard to prevent odd behaviour, poor performance and in extreme cases even crashing. We know a lot of machines can handle all these extra parts and physics calculations so those of you who are doing this are likely aware of the impact.

We’re also aware that this may feel unfair to those of you who are keeping within the intended limits and restricts your creativity, which is something we never intended. So, for the rest of Experiment 03 we’re going to increase the count of all parts to 999! Giving everyone tonnes more freedom and a fairer chance build truly outstanding things.



Please be aware that this will only last for another experiment or two, while we work on getting accounts, player progression, save/load and inventory fully implemented. When these are all in place, players will be given their starting account with a base inventory and the means to earn more parts though a free, in-game progression system and these values should no longer be modifiable.

Please also note that this may lead to more issues being uncovered and bigger performance hits while we continue to optimise and smooth things out over time.

Bug fixes
  • The ‘ClearAllParts’ console command will no longer forget that the lever handle is actually part of the lever, leading to issues with simulation not resetting correctly.
  • Fixed an issue preventing Glass reflection from working as intended
  • Fixed a visual issue with the normal mapping of Infinitum cubes
  • Users that were getting stuck on the initial loading screen should now be able to play again

Thanks for your continued support. Don’t forget to leave us a review on Steam! We want honest opinions and constructive feedback to help us push this game in the right direction.

About This Game

Robocraft X is a new game built within the Robocraft Universe being developed from the ground up based on a new powerful online physics engine. It is at a very early stage of development at the moment which is why this Steam store page is Unlistedand only available to those who have the url shared with them.

The reason we are releasing this extremely early version of the game totally free is to begin to build a community of players who can help us develop this game with their feedback and support.

The co-founders of Freejam (original creators of Robocraft) have been hard at work developing a powerful new Robot building online physics engine. It is with this new physics engine that we aim to create - in time - a builders paradise. A game with incredible freedom to build any machine you can imagine and then bring it to life. A game which allows you to play solo, with friends, and competitively against others in a large variety of game modes which challenge your machine building skills.

NB: The original Robocraft game is still in active development by a separate team and still being regularly updated.

Planned features are:

  • Build machines from high fidelity modular components and bring them to life, control them yourself, and even hop in and drive them
  • Invite Friends to build with you and pit your machines against each other or play cooperatively in your own locally hosted sandbox
  • Edit your machines whilst they are moving, adding and removing parts during simulation, even when playing online
  • Compete online with other players pitting your designs against theirs in official events which change frequently on a regular basis
  • Build your own maps and even your own games with in-game editors and share them with the community
  • Build machines at crazy scales from RC Cars to Star Destroying space ships
  • Free-to-play
