Curator Review

By What The Game? March 26, 2022

“Instruments of Destruction is a destruction physics game that is fun and absolutely beautiful, as it’s still in Early Access, we are looking forward to the upcoming content updates to the game.”

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Instruments of Destruction is a vehicle building sandbox with many possible directions, lots of player creativity/control, and high replayability, and those attributes make it a great Early Access title. Though the initial version will be satisfying to play, the exact direction and additional content for the game will be partially driven by community feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The current plan is for it to remain in Early Access for at least a year, with multiple years more likely.”

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

“The full version will likely add more islands, objectives, and vehicle parts. Aside from new and improved content, editors for structures, layouts, and islands are a high-priority for new features.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is highly-polished and ready for release. It currently has 70+ parts to build vehicles with and 10 polished islands each with 3 modes of play, in addition to Sandbox mode.”

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

“The price may go up for the 1.0 launch (25% most likely), but no other permanent changes in price are planned.”

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

“We plan to stay active in the Steam Community forums, and expect to update the game on a consistent basis. The game development will become more public (streaming, sharing detailed todolists, etc). More details will be announced as development proceeds.”

About This Game

Instruments of Destruction features an advanced physics-based destruction system. You can demolish every structure in the game piece by piece thanks to a fully interactive physics system, and every object in the world interacts with the destruction in some way. The game also features an advanced GPU-driven particle system and GPU-driven grass and surface rocks. Each element of the world complements the destruction system and interacts with each other and together they create a physical, visceral world to play with.

Build a vehicle your way, with an ever-expanding array of parts and pieces. Using an intuitive vehicle construction system that also lets you customize your vehicles' appearance and controls, you'll always have fun creating your next awesome invention.

From simple splitters and joints to fully-simulated treads and ropes, a large variety of parts are available to start the game, while more advanced parts (like giant chainsaws and rocket thrusters) unlock by playing the game. Each new part unlocks countless new possibilities, and you'll also unlock numerous pre-built vehicles that highlight the unlocked parts and provide inspiration for further experimentation.

While some vehicles will perform better than others in accomplishing your objectives, it's always a bit more fun to get creative and go a little off script. Optional bonus objectives and other hidden bonuses will reward more creative builders and add further replayability. Each island features 3 modes of play (Normal, Challenge, and Expert), plus Sandbox mode lets you play with no limits and even more control over how the world behaves.
