What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have been working on Buildanauts for almost three years, now we are prepared to share our game with the community on Steam. We feel that Early Access offers an opportunity for players to help us develop Buildanauts based on your user experience and feedback. Our team is excited to work directly with you and the rest of the Steam Community!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“When the Steam Community and our team feel the game is ready, we will transition Buildanauts to Full Release. During Early Access, our plan is to polish and add new features and content for the players.”

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

“In addition to our product backlog, we expect the Early Access version of Buildanauts to undergo development changes based on the feedback from the Steam community.

Here are some ideas we're considering, in no particular order:

  • Drivable Vehicles
  • Polished GUI
  • Additional NPC Vehicles
  • NPC animals in the Biome
  • More wardrobe items
  • Additional textures for structures
  • More jobs
  • Freeplay Sandbox Mode
  • Gamepad Support
  • Localization

And various other finishing touches from you and the Steam Community”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Buildanauts can be played for hours and has a strong content base. There are interesting mechanics, features and is fully playable, and well-balanced.”

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

“The price for Buildanauts may change at times as we release new content and features.”

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

“We feel that the community is an integral part of the development of Buildanauts. We will announce the features and changes in our development plan to keep an open dialog with you and the Steam Community. Suggestions from you and the Steam Community will be highly considered during team meetings and value your input on the development of the game.”

About This Game

Build a town from the ground up in this open-world construction simulator.

In BUILDANAUTS, you’re the foreman, the planner, and the mayor. Plan your town and bring it to life with the help of your construction crew. Build a town that your townsfolk, the Buildanites, will be proud to call home!


Survey a vast open landscape just waiting for your construction crew. Terraform the terrain, or run around looking for resources. Then design your structures by drawing them and choosing paint colors, textures, details, and building materials. Then watch as your skilled construction workers turn your vision into a reality!


Build your town from the ground up just the way you want it! Use a variety of construction tools to place city props, lay down roads, and much, much more. Then keep your resident Buildanites happy! Attract more townsfolk by keeping your town in top shape, but be careful: too much neglect and your Buildanites won't be happy!

  • Design and build a town from the ground up! Create homes, stores, offices, roads, sidewalks and much more!
  • Manage a living town that fills up with residents as you build! Keep your residents happy by building the amenities they need and keeping your city running smoothly!
  • Explore a vast open world and shape it to your liking with a selection of tools.
