Robocraft is a great option when looking for a robot-building game, especially because it's completely free to play. You will have free reign to build and customize your own robot designs and then put them to use in PVP-styled gameplay, where you battle other online players.

If you liked Robocraft, then why not try Robocraft 2? This is a sequel to the previous game with basically the same idea: PVP robot-building chaos. Although the game is still in Early Access, this game promises to have even greater features and opportunities than the first game did.

Battletech gives you full command of your outfit of mercenary Mechs and MechWarriors, allowing you to customize and pilot any of the ones in your armada. This experience focuses heavily on strategy gameplay with turn-based attacks. Although it isn't totally free build on the Mechs, you still have plenty of customization options, allowing you to switch up guns and weapons on them, as well as cosmetic details.

M.A.S.S Builder

M.A.S.S Builder is a great experience to try if you really want to focus in on the building aspects. It works primarily as a robot/mech sim builder, allowing you handpick different pieces and parts and put them together to create a unique Mechanical Assault Skeleton Suit (M.A.S.S.). Then, jump into battle against the aliens and try out your design in battle.

Armored Core

Armored Core is less focused on the building aspects but is still one of the best mech games. Plus, you still have plenty of options to customize your mechs, and you will really notice the differences when you jump into battle. It guarantees fast-paced, dynamic, omnidirectional battles that are hard to find elsewhere.

If you're looking for something a little more light-hearted and fun, try RoboCo. This fun, sandbox-styled experience will allow your creativity to shine as you're tasked to create robots fit to assist poor, helpless humans. Customize and create to your liking, then complete experiments and challenges to see if your design will work. Plus, you can even try this in VR!

Fallout 4 Automatron

If you're a fan of Fallout 4, you can mix your robot-building intrigue with it by trying out the expansion Automatron. This DLC adds a whole robot-building system to the game, allowing you to create, customize, and utilize your very own robots. Head out into the world and collect the parts you need, then build up a robot, mixing pieces as you like and even choosing a unique voice for them.

MechWarrior 5

Very similar to Battletech comes a slightly different twist to Mech battling and customization. MechWarrior gives your command over an outfit of Mechs in a PVE, real-time gameplay, allowing you to partner up with friends and fight against NPCs. With the plethora of customizations available to you, no two mechs are bound to be the same, allowing you to really experiment and control the mech of your dreams.
