'PC Building Simulator' Will Be Leaving Early Access Later This Month - Trailer

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.

The alpha demo of PC Building Simulator enjoyed viral success in 2017 and was the 3rd most downloaded free Itch.io title that year, with a successful critical and commercial stint in Early Access on Steam last year. The game has been lovingly crafted into a fully-fledged simulation to allow players to learn and build the PC of their dreams. PC Building Simulator currently boasts a ‘very positive’ user rating on Steam with more than 5000 reviews from its dedicated fan community.  

The Early Access phase has had constant monthly updates since March 2018, allowing The Irregular Corporation to add all-new features such as custom water cooling, wiring, and overclocking, plus more than 200 new licensed parts - all of it coming together to create the most in-depth simulation possible. Further updates and parts are planned for PC Building Simulator in the coming months. The end of Early Access is not the end of new content.

"After a successful period of Early Access where we saw tremendous support from our community, we are excited to be starting a whole new chapter for the game now our core features are complete"  said Stuart Morton at The Irregular Corporation "By exiting Early Access, we hope to further expand the joy of PC building to as many people as possible."

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.
