Sweden / April 5, 2022 - Prepare for the heist of a lifetime with Teardown, launching its 1.0 release on April 21! Already a viral hit with over 35,000 ‘overwhelmingly positive’ reviews on Steam, Teardown is a unique first-person single player destruction game from developer Tuxedo Labs. Following years of hard work fine-tuning and polishing the game, the 1.0 version of Teardown will launch on Steam for $19.99.

Teardown is a voxel based adventure that lets players live out their destructive fantasies with sledgehammers, vehicles, explosives, and more. As the struggling owner of a demolition company, what starts out as some harmless (well, mostly) jobs soon evolves into a more risky proposition. Take on heist jobs that require planning and problem solving. Blow up safes, steal cars, and ransack buildings to meet your goals. Be resourceful and inventive to puzzle your way through each level–there’s no one set solution!    

Teardown features 100% fully destructible and interactive environments. Move, manipulate, or outright smash obstacles to create paths, find shortcuts, and finish each job. Teardown’s physics-based gameplay means strategy and creativity are required to avoid sticky situations. From traversing tropical islands to working around a raging tornado, Teardown has a wide variety of levels for players to explore and stretch the limits of their imagination.

In addition to the base campaign, Teardown has a robust modding community that encourages players to let their creativity run wild and make the game their own. Create unique characters and structures and obliterate them into nothingness within moments! Just out for a bit of stress relief? Teardown has a dedicated sandbox mode where players can smash and demolish to their heart's content.


  • First-person, single player experience set in 100% destructible voxel environments
  • Physics based gameplay showcasing realistic effects of objects, debris, vehicles, water, fire, and smoke 
  • A campaign with 40 missions and an escalating storyline, complete with a gallery of interesting characters

About Tuxedo Labs 

Teardown started as the product of one-man operation Dennis Gustafsson, who experimented with different game designs before he ended up with the concept of a completely destructible raytraced voxel-environment. As the game was taking shape, the one-man show expanded into a small but dedicated team. Now Tuxedo Labs is a full game studio with the intention of creating games based on innovative technologies. They’re based in the game development metropole of Malmö, Sweden.
