Teardown Officially Launches on Steam
Teardown will push its physics engine to work so you can do whatever you want and it's finally available for early access on Steam.
For many, the first time they heard about Teardown was at Gamescom Opening Night Live 2020. The gameplay trailer for the destruction indie game had people excited to explore a stylized and completely destructible world. As of this morning, Teardown is finally available on Steam.
In a tweet from Dennis Gustafsson, the founder of Tuxedo Labs studio, he announced that Teardown was officially available on Steam by saying, “we pushed the button!” Additionally, the tweet contained a video of footage from the game of the player driving, shooting, and smashing their way through obstacle after obstacle until finally arriving at a wall that reads: “Teardown available now on Steam.”

This announcement doesn’t mean that the game is entirely finished, however. Teardown is in early access which means that content is going to be dished out periodically until the official launch of the game.
Tuxedo Labs has used an interesting marketing strategy for the game by creating a few promotional materials using in-game assets and physics. In addition to the announcement from this morning, the release date was also announced in a Twitter video that had the player character touching up some spray paint that when pulled out revealed the date “October 29.”
Gustafsson’s Twitter account has all sorts of behind the scenes content including this dev diary of screenshots showing his three-year journey on making the game. The transformation from being just a handful of physics cubes to a full 3-D world happens before your eyes and is pretty remarkable.
As new features get added to the game, Gustaffson will tweet about them showcasing exactly what they can do. In September, he showed off Teardown‘s racetrack as well as its car physics.
