Antec, a leading provider of high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself market, has announced the partnership with the UK-based independent game publisher, The Irregular Corporation, to appear in their popular game "PC Building Simulator". PC Building Simulator launched into Early Access on March 27th and sold over 100,000 copies in its first month. Users can purchase PC Building Simulator on Steam for £14.99/$19.99/€19.99.

An update to the game today will enable players to kick start building their dream Antec PC with the DF500, part of their Dark Fleet gaming series, which features RGB integration and a tempered glass panel so you can admire your flashy builds. In future updates, the smooth and streamlined P6, P7, P8 and P110 cases will offer sleek performance and features such as space-efficient interiors, direct airflow cooling systems, dust filtration and more - perfect for those who are seeking a high quality rig. All aforementioned cases will be recreated and fully functional within the game.



"We are very happy to be part of this exciting game", says Lee Bryan, Sales Manager UK. "To virtually build the rig of your dreams, troubleshoot, simulate a business and, last but not least, get to use officially licensed components from notable manufacturers sound like a perfect game for passionate users."

"We are delighted to be able to work with Antec in bringing their hardware to PC Building Simulator" says Stuart Morton, Producer at The Irregular Corporation. "We often get asked if Antec products will be available in the game and it is great to be able to now say 'Yes!' and bring them to life in the simulation for everyone to enjoy".

PC Building Simulator puts players in the anti-static wrist strap of a PC builder, working within their own shop to create fully functioning gaming PCs. The game features a large array of detailed and accurately-rendered components, from motherboards to CPUs that respond just as they would in real life. Fully animated installations let the players see exactly where each part slots into the computer, preparing them for a real life build once they feel comfortable within the simulation.

A clever tutorial guides players step-by-step through the PC building process. Using detailed instructions, the simulator explains each component and function and allows players the freedom to preview their own creations and play independently when they have learned the ropes. Well, the cables - never underestimate the positive effects of good cable management!

My feelings right now are a mix WTF, seriously, and whoever thought of this is a genius for thinking of and finding this niche of people to exploit. This is right up there with pet rocks.

You wouldn't - this is for noobs trying to get enough confidence to build a real PC. Most people have no clue about what that involves, and this helps their understanding of the big picture, by walking them through all the details, and highlighting their mistakes. Fun for them, but boring for those with experience.

Thanks, makes sense. I didn’t think of that.
