Based in Hammersmith in London, Payload Studios is the award winning developer behind TerraTech – the ultimate exploration and combat game, set on the off world.

TerraTech started life in 2012, and the Payload team started to assemble in late 2013 before successfully surpassing a £35,000 funding round on Kickstarter in summer 2014. Now enjoying life on Steam Early Access, the game – described by The Guardian as ‘the next Minecraft’ – charges players with creating their own vehicles out of a host of different building blocks both to harvest whatever resources they can find from recently discovered exo-planet and to take down rival Techs also out to sap up the world's resources.

In the biggest update to TerraTech yet, we have some awesome new toys for you to play with!

Version 0.6 is now live on the Steam store here (Store.steampowered.com), and 30% off in the Midweek Madness Sale too!

Main new features include:

  • The SCU (Singularity Containment Unit) Storage block makes its debut. This handy little thing will pick up any stray blocks surrounding it and add it to your new in-game inventory. To get a heads-up on how the new SCU block works, check out our tutorial video here: Youtube.com
  • Block Painting. When the block palette is open, all blocks available in your inventory will be at your very finger tips - ready to be placed on to your Tech in the most streamlined building experience to date. R&D owners will also have access to the Block Palette along with an infinite quantity of blocks to build with.
  • Base Bombs. Enemy Techs, replacement SCU's and player Techs will now all appear in the form of a base bomb hurtling towards the planet from the skies above!

    This, plus a metric Tech Ton of bug and crash fixes, crafting table tweaks, a GeoCorp makeover and new Venture blocks – 0.6 is shaping up to be one giant leap for Intergalactic Miners!
