Main Assembly Crafting Sandbox Early Access

Bad Yolk Games and publisher Team17 have launched into early access the freeform crafting, creation, and building game Main Assembly. The game features a wide range of tools and options to produces just about anything the mind can imagine.

Motorbikes, cars, planes, tanks, multi-legged ground vehicles and even robotic trousers are just a few ideas players can build in the game. Main Assembly is the first title from Bad Yolk Games who are bringing a powerfully advanced physics and destruction engine to the title. Combined with the strong visual programming capabilities players have complete control over their creations.

We’ve been hammering away at Main Assembly for the last few months, tweaking the experience based on player feedback, and we’re now ready for Early Access players to pick up their tools and get to work! It’s been a long road to get to where we are now, and with Team17’s help we’re at the point where we’re willing to let even more players in to flex their creative muscles and show us what they can make.

As the game dives into early access, two additional sandbox environments and extra cosmetics for the player’s drone have been added. In recent months there has been a series of open and closed beta tests that allowed the community to unleash their creativity. Some of the passionate player base’s work is available for viewing on the game’s Steam page.

We’ve already seen the incredible creative potential of Main Assembly in recent months. Its growing and passionate community has already produced some mindblowing contraptions from history, the modern world, and pure imagination throughout the game’s various beta releases. The move to Early Access will continue to build on that impressive creative trajectory in the months ahead, as more content updates bring even more possibilities for players to use in their creations.

There are challenges with 106 stars to collect. Players can share their creations and inventions over on the Steam Workshop as they head back to the drawing board to begin their next design.
