'PC Building Simulator' Sells 100K Early Access Copies In Its first Month

PC Building Simulator puts players in the shoes of a PC builder, working within a shop to create a fully functioning gaming PC.

PC Building Simulator puts you in charge of your very own PC Building and Repair shop, where you must complete challenges to build your reputation and progress through your PC Building career.

Experiment with a large array of detailed and accurately rendered components from motherboards to CPU's that respond just as they would in real life. Learn how to install these components, using tools such as thermal paste, cables and standoffs to prevent short circuits and breakdowns. Fully animated installations let the players see exactly where each part slots into the computer so you can learn to build your very own gaming PC in real life.

The game provides a tutorial system, which guides players step by step through the PC building process. Using detailed instructions, the simulator explains each component and function and allows players the freedom to preview their own creations and play independently when they feel they are able.

Indie game publisher The Irregular Corporation announced that its virtual PC building title, PC Building Simulator, has sold more than 100,000 copies in its first month on Steam Early Access.

Stuart Morton, producer at The Irregular Corporation said,, “The overwhelming support we have had from the PC gaming and building community has been nothing short of phenomenal and we are extremely grateful to all the players who have been so passionately providing feedback, this is the whole reason we wanted to launch into Early Access. There are plenty of new and exciting things to come for PC Building Simulator and we can’t wait to share them with our ever-expanding community.”

The Irregular Corporation is continuously working to update the title with new hardware and software partners and enhancements as it rounds the bases to its 1.0 launch, scheduled for later this year.


Hardware manufacturers such as MSI, CORSAIR, COOLER MASTER, EVGA, NZXT, ARCTIC, SILVERSTONE, RAIJINTEK, TEAM GROUP LTD and more have allowed true-to-life models of their products to be included. More partners will be added throughout the game’s early access period and beyond.  In addition to the hardware partners, PC Building Simulator have also teamed up with UL Benchmarks (formerly Futuremark) so players can benchmark their in-game systems using a simulation of 3DMark.
