Today I am talking about a game called Teardown. As I write this the game is not released so think of this as an advanced preview of the game. This is one of the most interesting games of 2020 for me and I am surprised that more people are not talking about it. This at its heart is a heist game, a heist game where you are free to do pretty much anything that you want.
Get The Item, Get Out!
The premise of Teardown is quite simple in theory. You are a person who needs to get a series of items and then you need to get the hell out of there before security arrives. That is the basic idea behind Teardown, but it is the execution of this idea which makes it so interesting and unique.
The visuals of the game are basic by design and I like it. I think that it has a kind of less blocky/more detailed Minecraft thing going in with the visuals. This is especially true when you break or blow stuff up.
Break It All Down!
The game world here is fully destructible and you can interact with pretty much everything you can see on a map. For example, the level that is being shown at the moment has you needed to get a series of key cards from a factory. There are multiple key cards to get, but as soon as you take one the security timer starts so you have to be fast and get the rest.
Planning The Perfect Heist
What seems like a lot of fun about Teardown is that you cannot just go in with your sledgehammer or shotgun blazing. You have to really think about what you are doing before you take that first key card. You need to plan your route. So, you can smash down walls, build up basic structures to make short cuts and you can even use vehicles to smash things, move heavy objects, or even just to be something else you can jump on.
The world really is your oyster to play with and figure out the best way to make this heist happen. If things go wrong and you fail, you can always try again. One cool feature is that you can check out the map after you do a mission and see your progress this will let you know what to change next time.
So Much Destruction
As I write this, we know that the maps are very interactive. You have a sledgehammer which can break down walls which is very handy as you would expect. You can also pick items up and throw them or use them to make structures to climb on. You have explosives you can use too, but these also have some strategy to them as these explosives can damage the environment so it could be you try to blow a wall up, but you accidentally also blow up a table you could have used to climb on.
So far Teardown is shaping up to be something really special. I love the idea of the game and it is looking like this is going to be a great deal of fun when it is fully released. Planning the perfect heist is going to be very addictive and I am excited to see what is planned for this as it moves along in development. Some kind of multiplayer mode where you work together or try to beat each other’s times or something like that would be a lot of fun.
Final Score: 9/10 (well this is how much I am anticipating the game)
- Plenty of items to use
- Planning the heists is going to be lots of fun
- I am sure the game will be very nerve-wracking once that timer starts
- I like how you are free to do what you want
- It is shaping up to be a fantastic game already
- Not sure when it will be fully finished
- Also, not sure if there will be any multiplayer in the finished version
- PC compatible
