PC Building Simulator is all about virtually building beastly rigs that might just be capable of running Minecraft at ultra. It’s still in the early stages of development, but I think it shows very real promise. And apparently I’m not the only one who does.

An indie publisher called The Irregular Corporation (based in the UK) has recently revealed that they’ve acquired PC Building Simulator and will help “build on the technical aspects of the game and implement new gameplay modes”.

PC Building Simulator started off as a project by Romanian student Claudiu Kiss, who wanted to “create something that would encourage people to be creative, as well as learning to build PCs without having to spend large amounts of money on parts”.

Stuart Morton, producer over at Irregular Corporation, says that Claudiu has “put real focus on building a tool that’s in-depth and educational, while keeping a sense of fun with traditional gameplay elements”. He adds that “he’s created something really unique, and we’re looking forward to working with Claudiu to help build the game into a more polished and rich experience for players”.

The publisher says they’ll be helping to develop the game’s career mode, which will “form the central gameplay of the simulator”.

No release date has been revealed, but you can follow its progress over on the official blog. If you’re keen on trying out a demo build of the game, you can download it right here.
