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 us decide what new content to make, and how to tune the gameplay to create 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 to improving our building system, we plan on working closely with our players to create a fantastic experience for you to Build and Rescue!”

v0.1.14, v0.1.15 (The Fixed Wing Update)

Dear Stormworkers,

5 sizes of wing section and 3 new aerofoil control surfaces have jusst been added in the latest minor update!

The new wings act in a similar way to the rest of the aerodynamics system, with some extra aerodynamic modeling for enhanced aerofoil realism.

You can expect minor updates like this frequently, while we are also working on some major updates that we briefly discuss in the PCGamer interview.

Much love <3

About This Game


Join a world where you design, create and pilot your own sea-rescue service. Release your inner hero as you battle fierce storms out at sea to rescue those in need.

Stormworks: Build and Rescue is 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 via the Steam workshop.

Stormworks: Build and Rescue - Create, Rescue and release your inner hero!


Design vehicles by placing blocks in a rich editing suite, customize them with your own design and program each vehicles behavior using the powerful in-game logic system. Choose from a wide array of components to design your own rescue helicopters, boats, submersibles and more...


Take to the sea, land or sky in your newly created vehicle and navigate through an amazingly dynamic world. Use the map to help guide you on your mission as you strive to meet your objective.


Design specific vehicles to respond to dynamic missions across open oceans, island facilities, remote rigs and more. Each mission is in real time, giving the feeling of a truly unique world full of life.


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.
