Techtonica offers a unique gameplay experience that combines resource management, exploration, and factory building. Players start with basic tools for digging, mining, and resource production. As you progress, you’ll need to build specialized machines to optimize gathering and production, enabling you to delve deeper into the alien world. The game will be entirely playable alone or with up to four-player co-op.

The game features a dynamic and interlinked factory system that powers your mining and production efforts. Conveyor belts and unique travel systems facilitate the construction of sprawling, automated factories, making it easier to build, connect, and traverse your expanding operations.

Set in the cavernous depths of an alien world, Techtonica surrounds players with bioluminescent flora and hidden secrets. Exploration is a key aspect of the game, with players tunneling their way to massive ore deposits and secret caves to find rewards and scan aging artifacts. These explorations unlock new recipes for enhanced automation systems and even more powerful technology, adding a layer of mystery to the game’s narrative. 

The Techtonica Demo is currently available only in English. However, when the game enters Early Access, it will be localized into numerous languages.
