What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We know that our building mode is great, but designing proper missions and challenges is difficult. By offering our game in Early Access we want to make sure that our vision matches yours. And if not, we still have time to change direction and implement new ideas to the game.

Of course it's also a way to finance the development as we are a small indie team.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“6 to 12 months depending on the feedback and necessary new features that may come up during the development.”

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

“We are planning to add several bigger and smaller features as the development progresses.

Most importantly there will be many more and different kind of missions in the future. Also the building mode will be improved by adding some new parts, such as light, slider part, transmission belt, sheet metal and hopefully cables too.

The game world will have more variations including loose stones, water and other environmental elements. Some visual touch-up and animations will also be done for sure.

At the moment we are figuring out our possibilities to add a level editor and multiplayer feature, but these are unfortunately not something that we can promise yet.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The main gameplay elements are mostly done (except for some visual touch-up): Main menu, creating/loading/deleting careers, choosing/previewing missions, building rovers, driving them and completing missions.

The building mode works pretty well already, and it has 9 of the 15 parts/materials we are currently planning to have in the final version. The rover gallery is also functional.”

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

“We'll keep the price same during the Early Access and raise it slightly when the full version comes out.”

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

“We are hoping to get loads of constructive feedback, so that we’d know what people want to see in a game like this. We know how to make the building and driving modes really good and fun, but we are not sure about what kind of missions people want, for example. Or if they want just an open world instead of any missions.

Another interesting way to involve the community would be to have a level editor in the game, and make those levels accessible to everyone. (maybe with a public rating system)”

About This Game

Build amazing 3d vehicles from simple buggies to complex work machinery! In this space-themed building game, you get to solve increasingly challenging remote-operated missions, as you climb the corporational ladder and unlock new planets.

The building mode is intuitive and unrestricted. There are only a few carefully designed basic parts, and by combining them it’s possible to do all kinds of mechanical systems: steering, hydraulics, suspension systems, to name a few.

The missions begin by teleporting to the destination. Once there you have to either collect and bring back supply boxes, or travel to a different portal in challenging terrain. There might also be man-made obstacles on the way that you have to either destroy or get past somehow.

  • 3d building mode with 10 different parts/materials
  • Rover Gallery, in which you can save your designs for future use
  • Career mode with 2 planets and 16 missions (more to come!)
  • Sandbox mode with rockets and white environment (ideal for stylish screencasts)

This game is in Early Access, which means it’s still a bit rough around the edges, and there might be some bugs or incomplete features. By buying the game and giving valuable feedback you’ll be helping us greatly to get this game ready!
