Danish development team Hello John has announced that its sandbox builder, Mechanic Miner, is launching into Steam Early Access on Thursday, May 22nd. Construct fantastical, mechanical, steam-powered machines, collect resources and acquire new technologies to help you survive a hostile alien planet.
With over 50 physically-simulated building parts (and more to come), player creations will be as varied as the challenges they face. Everyone must come up with their own solutions to break down impassable boulders, cross poisonous swamplands, and defeat terrifying bosses, creating fanciful stories to tell at dinner parties as you go.
“Seven years ago I had an idea for a game about engineering and started working on it in my spare time. As it turned out I was unable to stop again.” said Finn Nielsen, Game Director and programmer at Hello John.
“The team and I wanted to give players the ability to make real, working machines and play with them in a real game world. We were helped greatly by a quite exceptional community, which grew around the game once we put out a closed alpha. We are excited to launch into early access next month and look forward to develop the game with the help of our amazing community.”
Take part in the adventure of Story mode, where procedural environments ensure each run feels different. Tick off the challenges, scour the environments for resources, mine, fight, and research new technologies to prevail.
