'Bot Crafter' Lets You Explore Planets Alongside Your Robot Buddies, Coming to PC in 2024 - Screens & Trailer

Bot Crafter is a creative sandbox in which players will take on the role of a robot engineer exploring unknown planets.

Engineer, pack your things, we’re going to space!

This sandbox game will allow players to explore alien planets using specialized robots they will have to design and construct themselves. Discover, research and gather data to develop new technologies and conquer new surroundings. The environments of alien planets are as interesting as they are dangerous, so make sure that the robots are always by your side, ready to help you.

Bot Crafter will send its players on a one-man mission, during which the machines they will build will be their only companions. Engineers should take several aspects into account when designing their robots, which include their purpose, but also conditions on the planet’s surface. After all, the success of the mission will depend on machines’ effectiveness and performance.

Once robots start doing their work, it will be the engineer's responsibility to oversee their progress and regularly upgrade and repair the units. Data collected this way will certainly allow players to deal with conditions on unknown planets. They cannot predict what surprises foreign systems hold, but thanks to the information gathered by robots,  they can certainly prepare for some of the dangers. No human will come to your rescue, so you need to stay vigilant; keep your robot working and in the best shape possible.

Key Features:

  • Handyman engineer – build professional machines, which will help you survive in space; creating each robot requires an individual approach and proper planning: power supply, weight distribution or size of parts – these are only a fraction of the aspects to consider when getting down to your next construction
  • Aalien planet colonization – you will need the base and a command center to manage the work of your machines – all repairs and upgrades will also happen in here; since conditions on an alien planet are unpredictable, it's a good idea to create a facility where you will adapt your robots to new challenges
  • Special purposes robots –  the shape and parameters of an assembled robot should be adapted to the tasks they’re assigned to; machines collecting raw materials will need drills, some of the research robots will do their job better from the sky, and those that will have to travel through hard-to-reach areas will certainly benefit from an extra pair of legs; remember - your survival depends on their smooth operation
  • Wwork automation – with progress and subsequent upgrades, you can decide how you will manage the work of your robots – are you going to control them fully, or will you give them some space and simply  assign specific tasks to perform? The decision is yours

Bot Crafter is in development for PC (Steam), scheduled for 2024.
