4J Studios, acclaimed for its console adaptations of Minecraft and various Bethesda Studios titles, is revved up to add a host of new features and content to Manic Mechanics, a laugh-out-loud party game. Most notably, fans can look forward to the incorporation of a ‘Versus’ mode to complement the local and online co-op gameplay. In addition to this (potentially friendship-ending) competitive mode, Manic Mechanics’ upcoming update includes a whole-new neighborhood, new characters and entertaining twists to some of the most popular levels.
In Manic Mechanics, up to four players pull on their overalls and head to the auto-obsessed Octane Isle, looking to make a name for themselves as travelling mechanics. Players challenge the Master Mechanics who rule the island to prove their crew is worthy of joining the mechanics guild.
It’s a race against the clock to repair as many cars (trucks, choppers, tractors, mini-subs and UFOs…) as possible. The faster the mechanics work, the more chaos is unleashed; intricate mechanical processes are hindered by fuel spills, exploding tyres, short-circuiting robots, stampeding cows and even alien abductions, with hilariously chaotic consequences.
Manic Mechanics will be enhanced with new game modes and extra content on March 7th, 2024 for free. With 30-plus levels to be experienced across Octane Isle’s six neighbourhoods, this won’t be an easy ride. So, grab your toolbelt, round up your friends and see if you have what it takes to become a Manic Mechanic.
