The game client is a core component of Brick Planet that allows players to play and create their own games (like ROBLOX). Players are able to chat, change outfits or even hang out with friends without using the forums - with the click of a button to play. This is a software you will have to download the client to be able to play Brick Planet games and also the Workshop with it. This is one of the main components of Brick Planet's multiplayer system.

Client download

Please choose your operating system to download the client:

The client comes back on July 5, 2019

The client for macOS and Linux gets released on July 21, 2019

As of now, Windows thinks BrickPlanet is a virus and it will put your PC at risk.

Early versions

The client is in early development stages and most meshes/textures are not working at the moment. This might lead to lag. Also, the increased website and game traffic has resulted in minor lag.

The .exe lead to being detected by anti-virus programs incorrectly. There was later an update to stop this from happening.

Features

They're many features as from now to make the game work as it should be, just like character movement, chat, backpack and etc.

Character movement

Character movement is not finished yet. The movement is relatively slow and the walking sounds aren't quite finished. Holding the SHIFT key while moving will make the player walk faster.

Nametag

When you join a game, you will have a nametag above your character's head. This nametag displays your username, and it will indicate if a player is a staff member.

Chat

There is a chat menu on the top left of the client. You can close it by clicking the arrow. If you press T, you are able to chat with people. There is a scroll you can use to view the chat log.

Backpack

If you press B, you are able to open your Backpack and use any accessories that you have bought from the Store.

Menu

In the menu, there are four categories:

Players

In the players section you can view the leaderboard and all the players on the server. There are three buttons that appear on this section.

Reset character

This button kills your character and sends you to the spawn. (A keyboard shortcut to instantly reset is SHIFT + R)

Maintenance

The game client and workshop have both been down under maintenance off and on for a while, this is due to a lot of updates being made to the back-end code. These updates have improved features and made gameplay smoother.

Beta Testers

Beta Testers are certain players of Brick Planet that were given the ability to beta-test games, starting early in December 2017. Staff were given access to games later in December.

Beta Testers are also in a group called Brick Planet Beta Testers to show that they are on the official Brick Planet Beta Team..
