This is the debut production from Axolot Games. The game itself is a multiplayer-focused sandbox mechanic simulator featuring elements of survival. The player takes control of a mechanic sent to a fully automatized agricultural planet to fix and maintain the machines working there. As it soon turns out, the robots inhabiting the planet went insane and the protagonist's task is to make a good use of his knowledge of machines in order to survive the attacks of mechanical enemies. Scrap Mechanic offers two completely different game modes: survival and creative mode. The latter offers pure entertainment and allows us to build machines without having to bother ourselves with threats. The survival mode resembles games such as Rust or Hurtworld, focusing on exploration, resources gathering, building different machines for various purposes, fighting, and cooperating with other players.

In the game you become a coach driver, who begins a typical career – starting from a regular employee of a corporation, to finally become the owner of a prosperous transport company. The game takes you onto European roads, where you carry passengers from one place to another, thus earning money and unlocking new vehicles. The developers recreated around a dozen of licensed coaches – not only in terms of their appearance, but also things like the sound effects produced by different engines. In terms of visuals, the game is powered by the well-proven engine employed in Euro Truck Simulator 2, and features some new models created solely for this production. As a result, the game can boast realistic traffic and highly detailed recreations of cities with their iconic landmarks.

Star Citizen
Star Citizen

Simulation TBA

A space simulator created by Chris Roberts and the Cloud Imperium Games developer team. The plot of Star Citizen is set in the 30th century.

Cattle and Crops
Cattle and Crops

Simulation TBA

A farming simulator developed by a German studio – Masterbrain Bytes. The gameplay revolves around running a farm, which requires players to prove their skills in many agricultural fields. Because of the realistic weather system, on has to tend to sowing, soil fertilization and the crops’ condition – if, during a longer period of drought, one does not irrigate his crops they will wither in an instant. In order to handle the virtual farm in the most effective way, players have to learn how to operate agricultural machinery (the vehicles implemented herein are counterparts to machines of such makes as Claas, Horsch, Dammann, and Mercedes-Benz). This is not easy – the bed’ condition affects how these vehicles behave. Animal husbandry, on the other hand, forces players to take care of the feed, tidy the farmhouse, and prevent any diseases. Luckily, with time, players are able to employ workers, who handle some of the responsibilities and at the same time gain experience and to become even more efficient. Those among the players who are new to this kind of simulator games can make use of a number of facilitations and adjust the difficulty level according to their preference. Apart from the single player campaign, Cattle and Crops offers a Sandbox Mode - in which one can manage his farm with no limitations - as well as a multiplayer mode allowing players to work together.

PC Building Simulator
PC Building Simulator

Simulation 10 October 2017

PC Building Simulator is a unique production that is more of a training app than a game, where we will try ourselves in building a Personal Computer or learning how to do so. It was created by a single Romanian programmer known as Claudiu. When we start our adventure with PC Building Simulator, we have a simple PC case at our disposal and we have to put the motherboard, the power supply unit, the GPU, and other PC components in the right place. After doing so, we will have to connect them with the right cables. The game uses a simple and intuitive interface. The creator of PC Building Simulator was authorized by the leading manufacturers of PC parts to use the likeness of their products. Thanks to that, we will use PC parts that we can actually buy in stores.

On The Road
On The Road

Simulation 2018

On The Road is a truck driving simulator developed by the German studio Toxtronyx. The game allows the players to travel across more than 1400 kilometers of highways and around 300 kilometers of trunk roads. Players can also visit a dozen or so cities, like Berlin, Hamburg, Dortmund, or Munich. What is interesting, the terrain is based on satellite data. The day/night cycle and variable weather conditions make the game more diverse. Gameplay focuses on doing the most profitable jobs where we have to deliver the assigned cargo to its destination. Mastering the game's hard, realistic driving model is the key to success. Developers of On The Road formed a kind of partnership with MAN. Thanks to that, all of the vehicles we drive in the game are designed with the highest attention to detail. It can be said about the interior of our truck, all kinds of semitrailers we will use, or even the used technology, like the TipMatic gearbox. Sadly, the game's visuals are not as good as one would want them to be. They are mediocre at most.

Naval Action
Naval Action

Simulation October 2017

An online sailing simulator developed by the Ukrainian developer, Game-Labs, whose members worked previously on the STALKER and Total War series. The action of the game is set between the sixteenth and the eighteenth century - a period within the so-called Age of Sail. The gameplay focuses on the exploration of the enormous game world, where the players can trade, take assignments, and participate in realistic sea battles. The game features faithfully recreated weapons from the period, including various types of cannons, mortars, and carronades. One of the game's characteristic, and very realistic, features is the ship handling, as the player can control each sail separately and the crew management is also rather complex. The visuals are powered by the Unity engine, which makes the game look better than one could expect. Also, the creators' dedication to recreate the ships as authentic as possible deserves praise.

Gold Rush: The Game
Gold Rush: The Game

Simulation 30 September 2017

A simulator of a gold seeker. Developed by a Polish studio Code Horizon, the game gives the player an opportunity to travel to the cold regions of Alasca in order to excavate plots of shining gold. The player supplies their equipment with fuel and electricity, carries loads of soil using an excavator or a loader, cleans the material with a stifer and other devices, and ultimately picks lumps of gold with tweezers. The metal gathered is then taken to a blacksmith that can turn it into gold bars. The funds gathered are spent on upgrading one's machinery, as well as buying fuel and counterparts for the machines owned. The in-game seasonal cycle and bad weather condtions resulting from that can damage the player's equipment and sometimes even render them unable to continue excavation. A day-night cycle was also included - the player is capable of conducting works at night, but the essential machines providing light use the precious fuel then, which also has to be taken into consideration. The game offers a complex tutorial for the beginners, apart from the main Free Mode, which is an open-world component. In this latter variant, the player is free to develop their career, explore the game world, and discover its mysterious stories.

Ultimate Fishing
Ultimate Fishing

Simulation 20 September 2017

An advanced fishing simulator developed by Ultimate Games in cooperation with PlayWay. The goal of the developers of Ultimate Fishing was to create a game that would recreate all the appeals and nuances of this popular hobby. For the purposes of the production, seven varied fisheries were prepared on the basis of actual fishing spots in Panama, Russia, Canada, or the United States. In each one, we can fish in various ways and encounter different kind of fish that require us to adopt the right approach and equipment. Virtual fishermen have a wide range of rods, reels, hooks, baits, and other components at their disposal. The gameplay is made more attractive by changing weather conditions and the day-and-night cycle which, in combination with realistic water physics, makes fishing more varied and unpredictable. The game features an extensive multiplayer mode and an editor that lets us create our dream fishery.
