Today’s Niche Spotlight is Teardown, a voxel-based heist game by Tuxedo Labs that just left Early Access.
Teardown is a heist game set in fully destructible voxel-based environments. Prepare and execute heists through a 40-level campaign where you must take on increasingly shady and risky contracts to get yourself and your company out of debt. Make use of a variety of weapons, vehicles, and gadgets to destroy walls, break into safes, and tear down structures.
Once you are done with the campaign, you can try out the sandbox and challenges modes. Teardown also features full mod support with Steam Workshop integration, allowing players to easily create and share new challenges.
You can find the launch trailer below.
Teardown is available on Windows PC via Steam for $19.99.
You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:
Plan the perfect heist using creative problem solving, brute force, and everything around you. Teardown features a fully destructible and truly interactive environment where player freedom and emergent gameplay are the driving mechanics.
Tear down walls with explosives or vehicles to create shortcuts no one thought was possible. Stack objects, build structures, or use floating objects to your advantage. Take your time to create an efficient path through the level, plan the heist and get ready to execute it.
Run, jump, drive, slingshot. Do whatever you need to collect targets, avoid robots or steal whatever your clients ask for. But make sure not to get caught!
With your company pressured by increasing debt, you start accepting work from some more or less shady individuals. Soon you are knee-deep in a murky soup of revenge, betrayal, and insurance fraud. Beginning with some more or less legitimate assignments, you soon find yourself stealing cars, demolishing buildings, blowing up safes, avoiding trigger-happy robots and more. Upgrade your expanding arsenal of tools by searching for hidden valuables scattered around the environments.
Play around in the various environments with the tools you have unlocked. In this mode you have unlimited resources and an abundance of vehicles. No pressure, just pleasure.
Test your skills in experimental game modes. New challenges unlock as you progress through the campaign.
Teardown has extensive mod support with built-in level editor, Lua scripting and a Steam Workshop integration. Build your own sandbox maps, mini games, tools, vehicles or try out existing mods from the community.
