TerraTech E3 2014 Pre-Alpha Demo

As well as all of the content you loved in the first demo, the E3 2014 Demo includes new vehicle pieces, updated Challenge modes and the much requested options for saving vehicle designs and sharing them with friends.

New vehicle pieces

Wings: Use them to create lift and build the ultimate spacecraft, or mount them upside down to add downforce to a vehicle and take on the Checkpoint Challenge at full speed.

Giant Thrusters: The new thrusters are four times the size of the original ones, giving you many more opportunities for super high speed in the air or on the ground.

Giant Fuel Tanks: Of course with more propulsion, you also need more fuel. If you're using the Giant Thrusters, you'll need a Giant Fuel Tank to make sure your speed lasts.

Fans: A new way to get around. Fans can be used to create crazy hovercrafts, or to push you along at high speed without the need for extra fuel tanks and extra weight.

Desert environment

We've shown off the desert environment several times in the past, but now it's playable for the first time in this new demo. Choose the Flight Challenge mode and you'll be transported to this intimidating, but beautiful land.

Saving and sharing vehicles

Save your best vehicle designs so that you can use them again at a later date. Instead of traditional save files, TerraTech saves your creations as png images with the vehicle data embedded in the image file. Click the save button in the bottom left of the screen and you can load your current vehicle again at any time from the pause menu.

All you have to do to share a vehicle with a friend is click the button in the bottom left of the screen to take a screenshot and then send that image to a friend!

After clicking the button, the screenshot saves into the game folder. After you've sent a screenshot to a friend, they will need to copy and paste it into their game folder and they will then be able to choose to load that vehicle design from the pause menu in the demo.

Make sure you post your best vehicle designs in our E3 Demo Forum so that the TerraTech community can sample your work! Tweet them with #myTerraTech and we'll retweet our favourites!

Send your vehicle screenshots to info@terratechgame.com too so that we can try out your creations! We'll share some of the best ones on our website and social media.


We're running a competition too! The best vehicles shared with us @TerraTechGame on Twitter, will win their designers a place in our exclusive group of the very best TerraTech builders, The Mining Crew! Mining Crew members have their Challenge scores used as benchmark times in future versions of the game and can even have their vehicles used as enemies too!

This demo is compatible with 32 and 64 bit Windows systems and Mac OSX.

Reminds me of Banjo Kazooie, Nuts and Bolts, will give it a go later.
