What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Carried Away is an indie game being developed by 3 friends which is in a stable and playable state. We will continue to add additional features, levels, environments and challenges based on community feedback, so now is the time to get involved!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“6 to 12 months.”

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

“We have a large backlog of additional content and features that may or may not make it in to the final version of the game. This backlog is continually being fed by our growing community!

Below is an example of some of the features we have lined up:

  • Way more levels. We will go from 50 levels to over 100 during the course of EA
  • Additional themes (Summer, night skiing, sunrise)
  • Mountain bikers
  • Snowboarders
  • Twitch support
  • Vehicles
  • Bombs
  • More physics driven items
  • More building materials
  • Customisable characters
  • Cable cars
  • Zip wires

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version contains the core features of our game, including chairlifts, drag lifts, gondolas, jumps, bridges and controllable skiers! Our alpha testing community has helped us create over 50 well designed levels in our powerful sandbox tool.

The game is in a playable and enjoyable state, however it is possible that you may encounter some bugs while the game is in Early Access.”

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

“We plan to raise the price when the game is finished.”

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

“There's only 3 of us, but we love to listen! Join us on the forums or our Discord channel to have your say on how we take this forward!

1 Week in - what’s next?

It’s only been a week since the Early Access launch and we’re delighted with all the positive feedback. We are constantly amazed at the innovative screenshots, gifs, videos and workshop creations from the community. It has demonstrated what can be achieved in game!

Since the launch, we have been focusing on fixing the temperamental leaderboards, refining the ease of use, and balancing the initial content. We aim to have this patch to you next week.

After this we will be turning our attention to the first big patch where we will add some more levels, some of the community suggestions and our first new, big feature. We have been talking a lot about our development roadmap this week, which we will be ready to share with you soon.

Thanks for the ongoing support, you guys are the best!

About This Game

Design and build ski lifts, jumps and bridges in this physics based puzzle game.
Carried Away flips the classic bridge building genre upside down to create entirely new challenges! Watch with amusement as the fearless skiers put your creations to the test.

Construct ski lifts, jumps and bridges from a range of building materials to help your passengers navigate the ups and downs of the treacherous mountain landscape. Master the rope physics and the stresses and strains it will put on your constructions. Cutting corners along the way will compromise the safety and comfort of your passengers. When design alone isn't enough, turn to your skiing skills to get that extra nudge towards your destination.

Travel the world's mountains; start in the rolling foothills and journey up to the jagged and exposed peaks. Puzzle over carefully designed scenarios to help skiers reach their destination in a variety of mountain backdrops. Build increasingly impressive structures as you progress through the varied campaign, but keep an eye on your budget!

Create your own puzzles in the easy-to-use level builder where only your imagination is the limit. Customise the puzzle with the slope editor, then bring it to life with the procedural mountain generation tool and your choice of scenery and settings. Combine chairlifts and gondolas in a single level to reach the highest peaks, or construct the terrain park of your dreams to practice your skiing tricks.

Share your proudest and most audacious replays with the community. The inbuilt gif and mp4 exporter makes it easy to share your replays and creations online. Or take to Steam Workshop to test your engineering skills against the rest of the community.
