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 aspect. 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 highly playable, stable and polished game. 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. The forum at our site is the main hub of interaction between us and the players. We read as many comments as possible and take all suggestions seriously.

[09-11-2016] Hotfixes

From the team
While working on our upcoming patch we received some additional feedback from you guys which resulted in this smaller patch:

  • After the new update people who've been playing got stuck on the tutorial because the teleporter didn't work properly. This has been fixed.
  • We've also added a small feature that allows you organize the inventory a bit more. From now on you'll have a Favorites tag at your disposal to find your most used vehicles. To add a vehicle simply right-click the vehicle in your inventory and add it as a favorite.

[04-11-2016] Hotfixes

From the team
Hey guys, we got feedback from the community and found some small issues regarding round boxes and entering vehicles which brings us to this hot-fix patch.

fixes:
  • Tossing the quando high up in the air and entering an already spawned vehicle would result in a game crash.
  • Round box has been re-added
