Teardown has a Steam Workshop now, and that means there's a physics gun

Demolition simulator turned destructive puzzle-heist Teardown (opens in new tab) updated with Steam Workshop support on March 4 (opens in new tab), and players have already got to work on some great new maps, playgrounds, minigames, and tools. Specifically, modder Fall Guy 2106 has obviously made a Garry's Mod-style physics gun (opens in new tab) and a Half-Life 2 gravity gun (opens in new tab) for Teardown.

There are great maps to play with that new reality-defying tool in as well. The neato Junkyard (opens in new tab) map has a load of cool toys to smash cars with. Banana Republic (opens in new tab) gives you a great little built-up urban a rea to blow into pieces. Try dropping a semi truck on a gas station.

My favorite mod, however, is definitely the Not Great, Not Terrible Nuclear Facility (opens in new tab). It's a nuclear power plant with a mere 3.6 Roentgen background radiation.

Teardown's community didn't wait for modding to start making incredible things, however. They were already turning 3D scans of real places into Teardown maps (opens in new tab) months ago.

You can find Teardown on Steam for $20 (opens in new tab). We quite liked it on release, not only as a novelty but as a surprisingly deep game (opens in new tab) that really does something with its voxel physics. Makes all the frustration the developers had making it (opens in new tab) worth their while, we hope.
