About Scrap Mechanic

The machine-filled creative paradise of Scrap Mechanic is a multiplayer survival game with imagination and ingenuity at its core.

In the game, you’ll find yourself exploring, scavenging and collecting objects from all over a wide-open interactive world. With these gathered objects you’ll build shelters as well as impressive moving vehicles and machines that will help you survive all the treacherous adventures ahead of you. Team up with friends or fight against robots and the kinds of unscrupulous types who want to steal your stuff.

Scrap Mechanic will be released on Steam Early Access on January 20, 2016 and comes with a robust creative mode. A Survival Mode release is planned further into 2016.

About Axolot Games

Axolot Games is an independent game company founded in 2012 by Kacper Antonius and Pontus Holmbom. The company’s first PC game ‘Scrap Mechanic’ evolved directly from Minecraft: 2011 saw the team build a playable Xbox 360 test build for Mojang, a collaboration which never came to fruition. The Axolot team took their ideas for a more technically ambitious building survival game, offering a brand new playing experience within the genre.
