Indie developer Dennis Gustafsson said on October 30th,Teardown』Started early access distribution on Steam. The price is 2199 yen. At the moment, there is an early stage of the campaign mode and a sandbox mode where you can freely enjoy the destruction. The early access period is said to be one year or more.
“Teardown” is a sandbox action game developed from a first-person perspective. The player is a thief. Set in various maps, he works as a robber with that skill. The world of this work is all built with voxels, and any object can be destroyed based on physics. You can also use sledgehammers, guns, explosives, or vehicles to make holes anywhere you like, such as walls and roofs. Use these gimmicks to complete the theft.
There are multiple items to steal on the map, and if you get all of them and reach the escape point, you will clear the stage. In addition, additional goals have been set, and if you complete them, your reward will increase.
However, the alarm sounds when the item is stolen, and the guards arrive 60 seconds later. Items are scattered over a wide area, such as in multiple facilities, and even if you normally collect them one by one, it will not be in time. It is essential to prepare an escape route in advance. In other words, it’s a thief game where you build the optimal route while destroying and escape brilliantly. When clearing, the escape route is displayed and the time is also measured.
This work has been subjected to closed beta tests before its release, and has been well received in the community. The concept of combining destructive elements and thieves attracted expectations. With that momentum, we are attracting more players than the first day of early access distribution. The Steam review status is “overwhelmingly popular” with more than 1000 reviews. The number of simultaneous connected players on October 30 peaked at 8839, and it has already become a hit as a personally developed work.
During the Early Access period, campaign mode missions will be expanded, thief tools and vehicles will be added, and a new mode called challenge mode will be introduced. There are also plans to enhance the level editor. Those who are interested should consider purchasing. “Teardown” is now available on Steam.
