What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We owe much of the success of our original shapez title to the feedback and continued support of our fans, and that is a legacy that we want to continue with shapez 2. We want to ensure that our potential new title is a worthy successor to the original - and in order to do that, we’re involving the community as much as possible in the development process. Early Access allows us to take your feedback and suggestions under review throughout the development process, in order to create a game that you love as much as we do.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We’re not sure yet - we’ll be looking to release whenever we’re satisfied that the game is at a high enough quality. If we had to give a rough estimate though, we would say that there will be at least 1 year between the Early Access release and the 1.0 release.”

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

“We want to continually update the game throughout any potential Early Access period, and for the full release we’d like it to feature significantly more content. Whilst it’s not guaranteed that everything we mention below will be released, we attempt to include as much of it as possible - as well as additions from you, our community.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game will be fully playable and largely bug-free upon the Early Access release, and we estimate that there would already be around 25 hours of content to play through. Features like mods, wires, blueprint library and trains might not be available upon an Early Access release - but this will be communicated closer to the release date.”

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

“We’re planning to increase the price upon the 1.0 release, reflecting the additional content that our team will have worked hard to implement.”

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

“We owe many of our current ideas for shapez 2 to our community, and we don’t expect that to change any time soon. We’re currently in direct contact with our community through our Discord server, where we present new ideas, exchange feedback, conduct surveys and organise events. Feel free to join us!”

Reviews

“Shapez 2 is like if you stripped down the moment-to-moment joys of a game like Satisfactory or Factorio to their most primal elements and left all the rest behind.”
IGN

“the purest catnip for factory game lovers”
RPS

“enjoyably relaxing, but the kind of relaxing that, when you're done, you come up slightly amazed at the intricate clockwork beast.”
Hardcore Gamer

About This Game





Shapez 2 is a top-down factory-building game where you extract and process geometric shapes. Each shape is its own set of building-blocks that your factories can take apart, stack, paint and put back together in unique ways. Build and automate to produce distinct shapes and solve the production challenge of each goal.




Automate the processing of abstract geometric shapes into more complex ones by cutting, rotating, stacking, painting and more. Deliver distinct shapes to unlock new technologies and expand your factory’s capabilities. Learn, improve, rebuild and solve logistical challenges to design the most efficient shape production lines.



Build in multiple interconnected layers, allowing you to compact and optimize your factories in a whole new dimension. Improve your designs to get the most benefit out of every space platform built and massively increase your production throughput.




Shapez 2 is the purest factory building game imaginable - all buildings are free, resources never run out and there are no enemies or time limits. Prepare for a 100% factory-building experience: effortlessly delete, redesign and rebuild as much as you want, with no penalties, at your own pace.



You’re always in complete control - whether the messy spaghetti belts you built 4 hours ago could use some improvements or a whole circle factory needs to go, Shapez 2 gives you the tools to do it without limitations.




Start your operation from a single asteroid and continuously expand by building new platforms. Unlock new layouts as you progress, and grow from a single belt into a massive multi-station space factory connected by space trains. Design modular blueprintable platforms to build on a massive scale, placing hundreds of buildings with just one click.



Performance is very important to us, and with the complete rewrite of Shapez 2 in a new engine, we're doing our best to make sure that massive factories run smoothly - even with the all-new 3D visuals!
