What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is the ideal platform for the massive, ambitious project of developing Stormworks: Build and Rescue. Working with players will help is decide what new content to make, and how to tune the gameplay to great the best experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect Early Access to last around a year.”

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

“The full version of Stormworks: Build and Rescue will include new modules for creating your vehicles, more islands to experience, and more missions to take on for your coastguard team!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The vehicle designer is already in place, allowing you to craft, customise and pilot land, sea and air vehicles. You can also use the powerful logic system to pull off complex techniques.

A selection of islands for you to explore and purchase have been created, as well as a number of missions to use your vehicles in.”

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

“Yes, the price of the game will increase when leaving Early Access.”

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

“The Early Access community will be vital to everything we do - From coming up with new missions for improving our building system, we plan on working closely with our players to create a fantastic experience for you to Build and Rescue!”

Alpha 2, and our first Vehicle Showcase!

Hey everyone!

We wrapped up our very first alpha for Stormworks: Build and Rescue a little while ago - Thanks for everyone who took part! We're aiming to do another Alpha on the game at the start of November - and if you haven't signed up, you can do that right here -

We had a great response from our Alpha testers, and had plenty of vehicles uploaded to the Steam Workshop for everyone to experiment and learn from each others work. We loved some of these so much, that we decided to start a video series looking at the great work made by the Community - a Vehicle Showcase!

Dan and David sat down with some choice cuts from the Workshop, and took them for a test drive. Take a look right here -

Let us know what you think, and what you want to see more of!

About This Game


Stormworks: Build and Rescue
is the game where you design and pilot your own sea-rescue service, in a rich and dramatic physics playground.

Take your custom-designed, block based and programmable vehicles into fierce oceanic storms. Plan and execute thrilling rescues in a variety of challenging crisis scenarios. Export and share your meticulously designed vehicles with others.


Design vehicles by placing blocks in a rich editing suite, customise them with paint, and program the behaviour using the powerful logic system. Choose from a wide array of components for designing helicopters, boats, and more.


Take charge of your vehicles in a physics driven sandbox simulation - where your vehicles' performance is a direct result of your design. Use dials and indicator components to display feedback on the vehicles logic system, whilst pushing your designs to the limit in fierce weather.


Take on missions to run your own coastguard service. Design specific vehicles to respond to emergencies and cargo missions across open oceans, island facilities, remote rigs and more.


The day-night cycle and dynamic weather system creates diverse environments - from still sunny mornings, to fierce stormy nights. Strong winds can turn the ocean from gentle ripples to fierce heaving waves, affecting the vehicles using a physics based displacement-buoyancy system.
