There will be bugs. We made an effort to get all the big hairy ones off the living room floor, but we promise you there are still some little ones crawling around, and maybe some scary ones hiding in the corners. It’s your job as alpha testers to help find them! Please report any bugs using the feedback button on the main menu! If a bug is completely preventing you from playing the game, hit up our tech support via email at tinkermeisters@maestrosgame.com.


You’ll be playing with the complete race/faction The Knights of Teutonia and their Tinkerers. This includes three commanders to choose from: Tinkermeister, Robomeister, and the revamped Blastmeister along with all the robots in their arsenal.


You’ll also be able to take on the monstrous Tenshii Dreadbeast, and if you’re strong enough, bring him into battle with you.


You’ll wage war across four maps in the Isles of Tenshii - Sacred Arena, Fissure, Crater, and the brand new Sunset Isle.



More Races, Where?

You may have seen our second playable faction in images or videos floating around the web. Ultimately, we decided to keep those guys in the workshop this time as they’re undergoing some serious work to maximize awesome. We’ve learned when we put things out that are *too* far from completion, we get an overwhelming amount of feedback on things we know are broken, and it masks the really insightful feedback on ideas we’ve realized a bit more fully.

Can I Play on my 12 Year Old Idaho Potato?

Short answer - probably not. Optimization is usually the last thing that happens in game development. We made some performance improvements though, and you just might be able to squeeze some games out of a pineapple using our “low” graphics settings. We recommend a 1 mbps internet connection, and a modern (

When is it Going to be Released for Real?

“When it’s ready.” There are about 6 guys working part-time after our full-time school/work commitments on The Maestros right now so progress isn’t going to be lightning fast, but we’d love to have you playing the full game soon!

I look forward to some awesome games with all of you! Once again, click below if you want to sign up for alpha!

What is the license on this engine? Sorry if this is a dumb question, but please answer anyway if you know. If I were to create a game using UDK, would it be possible and legal for me to sell it?

Yes, licensing is a bit hairy, but if all the art assets are yours you can sell a game made from UDK.
Once you go commercial, you pay Epic 99$ and the first 5000$ is yours to keep. After that you pay 25% of your sales to Epic. So if you made 7000$ in sales, you pay (99 + ((7000-5000)*.25) ) = 599$

Hey guys, does anyone know of a really easy (or not) way of cel shading in the UDK. After playing Borderlands I want to try it out on a project of mine cause a few mates have said it would look alot better, I already have the cartoonyish textures and guns going (Similar to XIII) but it needs that chunky black outline to get things going. Please PM me or post any tutorial links on my wall, Thanx.
