A downloadable GearHead-1 for Windows and Linux

Download NowName your own price

Welcome to GearHead. This is, as far as I know, the world's first roguelike mecha role playing game. Set a century and a half after nuclear war, you can explore a world where various factions compete to determine the future of the human race. Features include random plot generation and over two hundred mecha designs. Pilot a giant robot, a city smashing tank, a living jet fighter, or anything else that can be built using the game's sophisticated design system.

GearHead is open source; you can download the Pascal source code from GitHub.

Try it out and let me know what you think.

I Really like this game, I hope you work on it even more

I am preparing a new release, probably early next year. I update GH1 and GH2 every few years as bug reports trickle in and to keep the executable files up to date.
