Teardown is a terrifically fun voxel destruction game that puts the player in the shoes of a sneaky saboteur pulling off the perfect heist. The game was first showcased in 2019, and is now in early access on Steam. A significant update is on the way from developer Tuxedo Labs, and it’s big enough to constitute the “second half of the game,” although there is no release date as of 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 update. Still no release date, but we're getting there....— Dennis Gustafsson (@tuxedolabs) October 6, 2021
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— Dennis Gustafsson (@tuxedolabs) September 3, 2021
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 developer will continue supporting the update and modding community. The update will also be free for those who already own Teardown.
