Modular Vehicle Combat Simulator Scraps Now Available on Steam Early Access

Assembly Required

HAMILTON, New Zealand — Aug. 13, 2015 — Scraps, developed by one-man team Moment Studio, is now available on Steam Early Access (Windows) for only $15.

Inspired by Interstate ‘76, Lego Racers, and Stratosphere, Scraps allows players to design and build a near-infinite number of unique combat vehicles. Only superior designs will endure Scrapsinsane vehicular deathmatches, which can be played via LAN or online.

Unlike real-world auto manufacturers, Scraps’ engineering philosophy is all about boundless creativity. The game’s intricate vehicle creation system makes it easy to bring the craziest contraptions to life. Spikes at the front of your car? Done. A race car equipped with a tank turret? No longer a childhood dream.

Every part (including realistic physics attributes) is functional and serves a unique purpose. Whether players add armor, weapons, engines, or heat sinks, no two cars are alike. Once the vehicle is outfitted to taste, it’s time to the test it against online opponents — or challenge friends to appropriately retro LAN deathmatches.

Upgrades are straightforward: Players who collect scraps from fallen enemies in the heat of battle can use them to purchase upgrades or repair vehicles. More destruction equals more experience, which unlocks new parts and weapons.

“With Scraps, I wanted to replicate that feeling of limitless possibility you’d get from building some crazy vehicle out of Lego or whatever as a kid,” says Bill Borman, founder of Moment Studio. “And then of course, here you can finally drive that insane thing you built. And a key feature of Scraps is how things really work: Engines make you faster, weapons shoot, cooling systems manage your heat, and so on.”

Key Features

  • Create a combat vehicle of your own design, from common sense to “legally insane.”
  • Play against AI or human players in single player mode, LAN, or over the Internet. You can also host!
  • Make use of functional parts to build your death machine: Want to go faster? Add a bigger engine. Need more defensive capability? Time to add some armor. How about tipping over when cornering? Easy: Put all the weight on one side . . . and voilà!
  • Engage in physics-based madness: You can build a vehicle that moves by firing its guns backwards. (No one’s going to stop you.)
  • Work within a budget or experiment with freeform testing. (Unlimited funds, yay!)

Pricing & Availability

Scraps can be purchased for $15 during Early Access (Windows-only for now). At launch, the full game will cost $20.

Scraps: Modular Vehicle Combat Now Available for Mac & Linux

HAMILTON, New Zealand  — Moment Studio’s Scraps: Modular Vehicle Combat is now available for Mac and Linux! A highly-customizable car combat game driven by realistic physics and enough explosions to make Michael Bay cry, Scraps takes inspiration from Interstate ‘76, Lego Racers, and Stratosphere to deliver platform-agnostic, four-wheel carnage of the highest order. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Scraps can be purchased for a limited time for only $9.75 (Steam Early Access).

Scraps allows players to design the combat machines of their dreams — thanks to its deep vehicle creation system. Armor, weapons, engines, and heat sinks interact with each other and can greatly affect car behavior. Put too much weight on one side, and soon enough they’ll be driving on two wheels like K.I.T.T. in Knight Rider (the original, not the remake). Collecting  scraps allows players to purchase upgrades or repair vehicles. New parts — and weapons — can be unlocked with the spoils of war. The game’s memorable vehicular deathmatches can be enjoyed online or via LAN for some old-fashioned fragging.

“I’m pleased to announce that Scraps for Mac and Linux is now a reality!” said Bill Borman, founder of Moment Studio. “It’s taken a bit of work to get this full cross-platform support — particularly as a solo developer — but Scraps can now have Mac, Linux, and Windows users all fighting together in the arena. Let the platform wars begin!”

Key Features

  • Create a combat vehicle of your own design, from common sense to “legally insane.”
  • Play against AI or human players in single player mode, LAN, or over the Internet. You can also host!
  • Make use of functional parts to build your death machine.
  • Engage in physics-based madness: You can build a vehicle that moves by firing its guns backwards!
  • Work within a budget or experiment with freeform testing.

Pricing & Availability

Scraps: Modular Vehicle Combat is now available for the discounted price of $9.75. The game will return to its original retail price of $14.99 on October 5. Scraps is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux.
