What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have brought Main Assembly to a point where we feel it is time to involve our community and let players explore the game. We think it is essential to engage with our audience and gather feedback to bring this project to its ultimate, final form!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're aiming for 1 year in Early Access.”

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

“The final game will have a more refined and smoother crafting experience. Beyond that, we intend to add additional crafting tools and more parts to unleash even crazier creations, more challenge levels to overcome and sandbox levels to play around in.

For more information see our road-map (that will be updated periodically!)”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“There will be some rough edges, bugs, performance issues, and potentially some crashes while you experience:
  • Freeform frame/plate creation tool.
  • Several functional and cosmetic parts to use in robot creation.
  • Optional Visual programming tool for advanced control of your creations.
  • Destruction-system with robot-body deformation and damage.
  • Aerodynamics on robot bodies.
  • A selection of singleplayer challenges to master.
  • Set up your own goals in the open sandbox level.
  • Create and play with your friends in Multiplayer.

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

“Price may increase moderately when we release.”

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

“By engaging directly with our community in any way we can, be it Steam forums, our official discord, twitter, Reddit. We want your thoughts and feedback because we are making this game for you!
We will provide our playerbase with regular work-in-progress beta-builds for the community to test all the latest crazy stuff, as well as more refined main-branch updates.”

EARLY ACCESS ROADMAP!

About This Game

In Main Assembly if you can imagine it, you can create it! You’re the engineer to build, break, destroy and enjoy! Create robots without limitation, cars, planes, or giant animatronics- ANYTHING! Once you’ve built them? It’s time to pilot them through multiple sandbox areas or push them to breaking point in challenge mode.

Key Features:

- 3 large sandbox maps
- 7 types of challenge sets, 20 levels
- Progression with 115 stars to collect
- Up to 4 player multiplayer
- Free-form Crafting Tool
- Intuitive Visual Programming
- Advanced physics and aerodynamics
- Destruction system
- 57 Drone character cosmetics

CREATE

With a powerful and limitless building tool at your fingertips you can progress from a building beginner to an amazing architect. Every plate, chassis and frame is completely customisable! Tinker alone or enlist friends for your next big project. Build something amazing? Share it in the Steam Workshop!

COMPETE

Like everything in Main Assembly, if you can imagine it, you can create it- including multiplayer fun! Whether you want to chase, race or shove your genius creations in their face, the choice is yours! In sandbox areas you are free to play the game your way. Remember, friends who play together, stay together!

CHALLENGE

Test your inventions by taking on challenge packs! With increasing difficulty push your creations to the limit by testing their speed, survival, and handling through a series of challenges. Can’t do it? Don’t go nuts and bolts, alter your robot, build a new one or download a creation from the workshop!

CUSTOMIZE

In a game where anything is possible- don’t be basic. Every aspect of your robot is customisable from the size, shape to the colour. Think it’s lacking a finishing touch? Stick some googley eyes on it! The robotic-chic doesn’t end there. As you navigate through the world of Main Assembly you take on the role of a spherical marvel AKA a drone, complete with a tool kit of cosmetics!

CONTROL

Now you have a beautiful robot, bring it to life! By using the nodes in the powerful visual programming interface, you can set up controls for your robot. After getting the hang of it, you can dig deep into it and use Sensors to make logic for different types of automation. Or, equip rockets for explosive game play!

CRASH

Your robots will take damage if they crash, fall, or take a hammer to the face! Advanced destruction systems enable bending chassis and damage that affects robot behavior. But don’t worry, you can iterate to improve and re-spawn your robot to crash it even harder!
