The Mech Bay

The number one site for MechCommander content on the web!!

Welcome to my fan-site for the MechCommander video game series!! Feel free to look around and leave a comment :)

This site is best viewed on desktop, and is still largely a work in progress.

The MechCommander games are set in the BattleTech universe, a futuristic sci-fi setting in a dystopian age of war, which originally started as a board game that released in 1984.

The MC series consists of MechCommander 1 (1998), its expansion MechCommander: Desperate Measures (1999), and MechCommander 2 (2001). They are real-time strategy games for the PC in which the player is in command of various BattleMechs, piloted by MechWarriors, and must complete missions with different strategic objectives.

Although it is not a part of the MechCommander series, BattleTech (the 2018 PC game) is considered a sort of spiritual successor to the series. There have also been a number of fan-made MechCommander mods and games.

17th July 2022

  • A few updates to pre-existing pages - to prove I'm still thinking about this site and the games!! I've also been possibly thinking about either expanding this site, or making an entirely new site, about the MechAssault games, since I've been replaying MA2 recently. I want to finish writing about MC first before I possibly branch out to that though.

I love the MC games so much, but I'm not sure how often this site will have updates after I've finished it, since the games are over 20 years old now and there isn't (officially) anything new being released for/about them.

Regardless, I've had a lot of fun making this site and I hope there are others out there on the web who still care about these games and will enjoy it too!! :)
