TerraTech is a physics-based vehicle construction, exploration, and combat game from Payload Studios. It is an off-world adventure where you create to your heart's content and then set out conquer all before you.
Set amongst the stars, TerraTech – which picked up the TIGA Award for Best New IP from a Small Studio in 2014 - is the story of an Earth contending with an expanding population and environmental damage, with profit-driven multinational corporations leading the charge to seek out and colonise new planets.
Your job is to lead that assault, building contraptions and vehicles out an array of different parts – some scavenged from others – as you look to harvest resources from your new endless, alien home to send back to Earth. This means, as well as tracking down the planet's assets ahead of your rivals, you will also find yourself taking them on in direct combat, clearing the way for your fleet to dominate the off world.
And with said battles come the spoils of war. New vehicle parts and weapons can be scavenged from other prospectors or built from the minerals and resources you find, and by researching new technologies or buying new blueprints you can further boost your fleet's capabilities.
TerraTech is the ultimate exploration and combat game. Procedurally generated worlds and an almost limitless array of vehicle design and customisation make for a unique experience for every player.
Make your vehicles as big, small, powerful, useful or just plain crazy as you like – the choice is yours. Ally yourself with one corporation and rise through the ranks to profit and glory, or hedge your bets and cherry-pick from a range of them, accessing powerful new technologies but risking more of your cash reserves to support their different energy sources.
