Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

We want to create a game with a vast world where you can build almost every type of vehicle and challenges that you can imagine for both yourself and other players as well. This means that Homebrew is a huge project in terms of content, systems and features and we think that Early Access will provide us with the necessary player input to shape/improve the game.

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

We want to release a stable game with the planned features in it. Since we have the foundations of our game we'll be fixing bugs and adding content more frequently in future updates. Throughout development we'll also focus on implementing some community suggested aspects. We can't give a definitive release date but once the game comes out there are plans for post-release content too.

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

Homebrew is an open physics based sandbox and for us it'll be in a constant state of development. Some content will be added, while some may be removed to improve the overall experience. To do this we'll constantly strive to make the necessary efforts while consulting with our community first.

In the about description you'll see the things that are currently in-game and the ones that are planned in the future. Since we're still early in development we'll be focussing on eliminating bugs, adding the planned features and optimization.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

In its current state Homebrew is already a playable and stable alpha. That being said it's still an Early Access title which means that bugs may and probably will occur. If you run into issues don't think twice and contact us so that we can help you and other players by fixing them.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

The price will most certainly increase throughout development once things get more polished. The final price will be determined once we're approaching full release.

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

We're always interacting closely with our community on the community hub, if you run into any issue or have a suggestion, you can always find us there. In addition we also have a DISCORD CHANNEL where you can find us when you have a suggestion or an issue.

PSA - Rename bug

Hey guys, just a friendly public service announcement. As some people may already know, the Rename feature has been bugged for quite some time, and is still very badly bugged.

If you've run into this bug, where renaming a vehicle project causes it to open up a blank project, don't panic! Try to get in touch with one of the moderators and we'll get it fixed up. It's a very quick and easy fix.

For those that haven't had this issue, just continue not using the Rename feature. If you need to rename something, use the Save As button and save under a different name. This will make a copy with the name you want. Though it is highly recommended that you save the vehicle before using Save As as well.

I hope this issue isn't a major inconvenience to anyone.
As always: Dream - Build - Enjoy

From the team
With the release of the weapons patch, we've been keeping a keen eye on discord and steam, to make sure everyone is receiving the update smoothly, so far there hasn't been too many issues it seems, apart from a couple of bugs brought up by a couple of community members.

So we've issued a hotfix to address some of these issues

  • Crashes on machines running non-DX11 hardware right after loading screen
  • Not seeing bullets unless Ocean was set to "realistic"
  • Binoculars/Camera tool not taking pictures
  • Physics acting weird on wings for some vehicles, specifically ones with a lot of rotators / joints
  • Global chat not registering connections

We'll continue monitoring Steam, DISCORD and our other channels as usual!

If you encounter a bug please follow these steps so that we can solve it even faster:
  • See if you can replicate the bug
  • Be as specific as possible about the issue, the more information the better. Preferably attach your output_log.txt file which can be located in: installed directory / HB146_Data folder (right click on Homebrew in your game library, select properties and then browse local files)
  • Notify us on Steam or Discord
DREAM - BUILD - ENJOY

  • LOGIC PARTS
    Take building to the next level and combine usual parts with logic components to build autopilot vehicles, stabilizing systems, transforming vehicles, robotic arms, … Your imagination is the limit. More information on how to use these parts can be found on our PARTS WIKI

    Whether you’re looking for help, someone to play with or simply want to chat you’re always welcome to join us on Steam or our DISCORD CHANNEL.



  • PARTS
    That’s right, we’ve got a series of new parts planned including water parts, tank tracks, wings, hulls, wheels, more logic components and community suggestions.

  • BUILDER
    We want to continue improving builder and implement things like symmetry, coloring system and tools for user generated content.
  • CHALLENGE SYSTEM
    To add more gameplay and possibilities we will implement the necessary tools to create custom challenges in Homebrew.

  • WORLD
    We want to expand the current world even more and add more variation to the environment.
