What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are taking you on a journey around the world so that you can learn about construction techniques from Europe, Africa, America, Asia and even the frosty Arctic! You have the opportunity to make an igloo, a clay house, a log house, European house and many others at the same time facing extreme temperatures and not always friendly fauna ;) And yes, you can be a one-man construction team, but it is known not from today that building together – is better.

Creating a game is also a challenge like the construction process - we face various conditions and use many tools to provide you - our players - with the best possible ways to play, relax, rest, but also learn. Early Access enables us to go through the process together and learn from one another how to be better Builders – in terms of game development and actual gameplay as well.

We invite you to tell us your thoughts about your House Builder experiences and hopefully, our strong relationship, our work, turns into the most unique experience for all of the Builders around the World!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect the game will be available in Early Access from 6 to 12 months. During this time, we plan to prepare the final product for you, taking into account the feedback from our Community of Builders.

These are our predictions, because we plan to release the game when it meets all our expectations, so being optimistic, we are also flexible. It is worth remembering that the game already offers a lot of possibilities and offers a long playing time.”

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

“In the full version of the game, we would like to introduce our Builders to:
- new mechanics
- further levels of gameplay difficulty
- construction challenges from not yet discovered parts of the World
- many new features including the more detailed designing of the backyard”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Early Access will be available on 11/11/2021 on Steam, and now we invite you to play the demo version, which allows you to pass two levels in extremely different conditions - a clay house and an igloo!”

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

“The Early Access release, which will be published on 11/11, is a game for real construction enthusiasts who want to participate with us in a crucial stage of its development, so it is a version a little cheaper than the official version.

The official game will be more polished and detailed, so its price will be slightly higher than that in Early Access, but it will be offering more complexity and new, previously unknown mechanics.”

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

“We are proud and happy to say, our Community is a crucial part of the game development since the beginning of working on the project! We've also built a healthy Discord community where all of us share our thoughts and ideas, report bugs, and just enjoy being the part of the game.
We conduct internal and external surveys to ask players what challenges they would like to face in the game, and we are always eager to hear our community feedback!”

About This Game

Become one man construction crew and build houses like a simple African mud hut and as complex as a super modern energy-saving architectural marvel.

Let us take you on a trip to various spots on the globe and experience true architectural variety. You will try to build a mud hut in Africa, an igloo in the Arctic, a Canadian house, a log cabin in Siberia, a traditional house made of bricks, airbricks, or concrete, and many, many more…
Every house consists of hundreds of elements you need to match according to the rules of construction.

Learn new technologies

See how construction technologies differ from each other. Learn how to apply proper materials and procedures during the building process.
Build houses brick by brick, element after element, down from the foundations and up to the roof.
Learn different structures of buildings, construction materials, their features, and their properties. Build simple constructions made of primitive materials, but also ultramodern buildings featuring the latest technological discoveries.

Use unique mechanics

Use various tools depending on the situation and requirements. Improve your skills, and use better equipment to be able to build complex structures quickly and efficiently.


Sometimes there is no way out. Demolish everything in your path and start again!


The building is your hobby? Thanks to the House Builder you will become a one-man construction crew! Find a perfect piece of land and create something amazing there! Constructing is only limited by your imagination and bank balance… So control your resources, keep up with construction standards and raise buildings that everyone will love!


To build a first-class house, start with choosing the perfect location. You can select every place in the world! Boiling Africa, frosty Siberia, or tropical Amazon Rainforest? It’s up to you!
Next, let’s focus on the project - you can create different types of buildings - from miserable little sheds to exclusive mansions. This will depend also on the materials you will use. Each of them has different properties. Using the wrong material will cause unpleasant consequences. Prove your cleverness and knowledge to prevent any glitches in construction. Over time your skill will be better and buildings more advanced. When all the pieces are set, it only takes a moment to finish and give a unique look to your house. The buyers will be delighted!


Build all over the world - Learn more about the architectural style of the region and let your imagination run wild!
Learn new technologies - With every building your skill improves and new technologies will expedite your work.
Demolish! - Some of the houses must be cleaned up and rebuilt from scratches.
Go back in time - Travel across many periods in history and try to build all iconic designs
Diverse climate - scorching and freezing temperatures can be a challenge to sustain. Be aware of dangerous fauna.

Home Builder.
