Welcome to Gear Up

Gear Up is a multiplayer game where you can build tanks and participate in online challenges such as battles, races and missions. We have created lots of weapons, turrets, chassis and tracks, all ready to be assembled with each other. Thousands of different tanks can be created and if you think wheels and tracks are boring try the spider legs, the hoovers or the wings. All vehicle parts are physically simulated and we are tweaking them towards arcade action.

We will ship Gear Up with a level editor and all the source content. In the editor you can build or modify levels and vehicle parts or create new challenges and game modes. As we are a very small independent team we gladly involve you in the development process. Through the forums you can help us with your ideas about how to improve the game and make it more fun.

The game is still in development but you can sign-up for the pre-alpha demo which is distributed via steam.

Thank you for your patience

You may have noticed that Gear Up development slows down from time to time and that we have been very slow to reply in the forums and by mail. This is not because of laziness - the main reason is that we are only five persons in the team and creating a multiplayer vehicle shooter based on in-house technology is a gigantic project. To make it even harder most have not been able to work full-time on Gear Up. There have been a lot of parental leave in the team - three babies were born the last year. We have also spent several months with other studios as programming consultants for other game projects. It takes time and focus from Gear Up but it is necessary as it pays the bills for the Gear Up development.

The good news is that we are getting more time for Gear Up now! Expect to see more code updates and improved communication from us. And if we are lucky, we can hit beta during the summer and release the game before the end of the year.
