What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access will greatly help Bolt Bot to become an amazing 3D Platformer similar to the classic platforming games it was inspired by. Feedback is very welcomed and players can even suggest what content they would like to see added to the game.

Bolt Bot already has 36 levels to explore and loads of collectables to find.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game is currently at around 75% - 80% completion and is planned for a 2024 full release. One more content update is coming before the final release.

Saved games will carry over with the content update and steam achievements are achievable right now in early access.”

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

“More levels, More enemies, More Tools, More Upgrades, More Boss Battles and MORE COLLECTABLES! Basically, more of everything that makes a 3D Platformer fun and engaging!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“There is already a lot to do and collect in Bolt Bot!

Currently the game offers -

36 Levels to Explore.

Loads of Scrap to collect.

42 Microchips to Find.

6 Staff Members to Hire.

5 Music Tracks to Play in the Hub World.

7 Spray Paints to Customize Bolt with.

36 Collectable Cards to Own.

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

“The price of the game will increase when a new world and a section of the hub world has been added in a content update.”

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

“All feedback is very welcomed and will boost Bolt Bot to become the best it possibly can be!

Hopefully the game is already shaping up to be a celebration of what makes 3D platformers so much fun to play and i am excited to see how an active player base can help to improve it even more over time!

About This Game



CLASSIC PLATFORMING FUN!
Take control of a robot named Bolt in over 50 levels of 3D platforming fun inspired by classic platform games. It is a collect-a-thon at heart and rewards the player constantly in an evolving hub world! Collecting all the scrap in two levels next to each other will unlock a bonus level, which plays a bit differently to the main levels.



STEAM DECK COMPATIBILITY

100% Playable!
After clicking start with the touch screen or touch-pad Bolt Bot is fully playable from start to finish.

Cloud Saves
Unfortunately, cloud saves are not possible. The game started development without steam deck in mind, so please choose either the PC or Steam Deck for your playthrough.




STORY
Two shops are fighting for customers on the same street. One is called Bolt's Bit's and Bot's and the other is Mr Coin's Treasure Cove. When the evil Mr Coin realizes Bolt's shop is doing more business than his, he releases a virus which infects all of Bolt's products. Bolt then has to enter each one of his toy like models and repair everything inside to increase his store rating!




TOOLS AND UPGRADES
Bolt is both a skilled mechanic and inventor, so he has many different tools and contraptions at his disposal, such as a spanner to fix things with and a whip to reach higher locations. His trusty sky wing also makes an appearance, so that he can safely glide back to the ground. These aids only appear in certain levels which creates a unique puzzle platform challenge in every level.




BIT'S AND BOT'S
The main hub world in the game is called Bit's and Bot's. Every collectible found in each level of the game is tied to it. The more you collect, the more the shop becomes alive!

Scrap
Scrap can be traded with Mr Coin for an extra Microchip.

Microchips
Microchips are the main beating heart of the shop. They power up display stands, unlock music tracks, give Bolt new paint schemes and unlock bonus levels.

Viruses
Viruses have infected Bolt's products and need to be removed. Removing every single one from a product will reward you with a shiny collectible card, which can be viewed from one of the stores many card display stands.

Coins
Coins can be used to hire Mr Coins staff members for your own shop.

Playable with a Mouse and Keyboard or with the Xbox Controller.
