Hi Mechanics! Another fantastic month has passed!
Feels like we’ve been working 25 hours a day this last month
and the coffee machine at Scrap Mechanic HQ has been put
through the ultimate stress test. Bugs have been squashed and
awesome has been added. Highlights? Highlights:
- Build a Great-looking Hideout. Fast!
Our base blocks have really been improved with new textures!
They’ve gone from basic, plain colors to now looking like
different materials. Best of all, they’ve all got different
weights, so keep that in mind when you build vehicles. These
blocks can be scaled to build big structures in no time at
- Fluffy New Clouds
Since we started work on the game we’ve badly needed a neat
skybox - we just never got round to making one. Something
wonderful happened the other day though, when our talented
artist created a flying machine and took to the sky with his
mighty pencil. The result is nice: stylized, but not childish.
Just the way we wanted them. Unfortunately our artist crashed
somewhere and got stuck in a giant pine tree. We hope for his
speedy return with fingers and talent intact.
- Scrap Mechanic on Steam!
Hold on Mechanics! Calm down! This doesn’t mean the game is
out yet, but it does mean we’re currently implementing the
game with Steam. We’re still making daily changes and testing
it all out, and we’ll be in that phase just a little longer.
All this means that we’re getting closer, so it’s still great
- Terrain in Creative Mode
We’ve added more vegetation, grass types and rocks! The
Creative Mode terrain is starting to look nice and lush. It’s
gonna be a great place to test out your machines, and we’ve
even added a few sweet jump ramps here and there for all you
- New, Exciting Building Parts!
We’ve added lots of new building parts for you to use in your
creations. The game now has over 100 building parts, all
lovingly modeled and designed from the ground up. We won’t be
showing you all of them until you get your hands on the game,
but some of them are straight up silly. Like this toilet paper
roll… Yes, you can actually make a house or vehicle out of
- General Fixes, Improvements
Maybe not the most fun to read about, but a lot of our time
has gone into actually cleaning things up. Adjusting and
improving. We aim to make sure that the game maintains a good
experience for the players throughout Early Access, and for
that we need to make sure the framework is as neat and stable
- Release Date Coming Soon!
We’re really excited to let you know that we’ll be releasing
Scrap Mechanic to early access pretty soon. We’ve finally
reached the point where we feel the game can offer a lot of
fun playtime in its current state. The first early access
release comes with a creative mode filled with over 100 parts
that will allow you to build some truly amazing machines. It
also comes with an easy to use in game handbook explaining how
all the tools and items work. The creative mode world is not
endless, but is more than big enough to build just about
anything you want. Oh, and it comes with multiplayer support
so you and your mechanic friends can be creative together.
Stay tuned for a release date and price in the coming weeks!
