Teardown Part 2 finishes the game’s campaign, adds clever new tools
Teardown is a remarkably enjoyable voxel damage video game that puts the gamer in the shoes of a sly saboteur managing the best break-in. The video game was very first showcased in 2019, and is now in early gain access to on Steam. A considerable upgrade is on the method from designer Tuxedo Labs, and it’s huge enough to make up the “second half of the game,” although there is no release date since yet.
What’s on the way? Some additions seem small, although they’ll likely have a big impact. The wire tool, for instance, can tether objects together — and it maintain tension, so players can get some catapult action going with the right set-up.
There are also rocket boosters, which is very exciting for obvious reasons. One rocket booster won’t take an object very far, but the more you apply, the higher things go. The developer showed off the boosters in a short video demo on Twitter.
And since there’s some confusion: Part 2 is the second half of the game and will be released as a free upgrade. Still no release date, but we’re getting there….

Of course, there are new challenges as well — like these robots, who will march towards you with a determined little trot.
Another update on the robots. Art style test by @HuntingFluff and new behavior. All the physics driven animation and path finding in a destructible world makes this rather tricky and clunky to work with, but it’s slowly getting there. pic.twitter.com/X6vQPZZ5kt

Honestly, it’s adorable … up until the security bot deploys a flamethrower. These guys will show up in the campaign, so players will need to figure out clever ways to get past them (or shut them down.)
Teardown’s Part 2 update will conclude the campaign, but the designer will continue supporting the update and modding community. The update will likewise be totally free for those who currently own Teardown.
