What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Hydrofoil Generation attempts to recreate a kind of sailing with a simulation depth never attempted before, while we are quite confident when it comes to the physics modeling of the boats things like control systems and game-play elements would greatly be enhanced by early player and community feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It’s hard to say. We believe we could get a release candidate during 2023 but will depend on the feedback we get from the community, the potential new licenses we can implement, our work bandwidth and the overall performance of the game.”

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

“We expect a general improvement on the boats handling and performance based off the feedback we get from community. In terms of content, you can expect additional locations based off real life races, more boat models and, hopefully, some real-life licenses.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of the game will allow players to participate in events at Den Haag, Hong Kong and Bermuda practicing in single player or joining online multiplayer regattas. Basic rules of sailing will be present together with wind shifts and gusts to make the races always alive and unpredictable.
Full race replays make for great showcase of your online races and allow for “after the fact” analysis of race accidents and crucial moments of a regatta.
A rich set of driving assists are available to allow for a gradual and gentle introduction to the world of foiling boats even for people without real life experience.”

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

“Potentially yes. As we do not know the amount of work, resources, or content we will be able to implement. Also, the cost of some of the licenses we would like to integrate in Hydrofoil Generation may vary. We will review these conditions as we sail… and adapt accordingly.”

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

“We will gather feedback from the Steam forum and social media. We will keep an eye on questions and specific suggestions. And, when possible for us, we'll reach out to the sailing community on the sailing competitions forums, sailing social pages, websites or events.”

About This Game

Hydrofoil Generation is the realistic and exciting sailing and foiling simulator from Indie developer Jaxx Vane Studio. A passion project created by Stefano "kunos" Casillo co-founder of Kunos Simulazioni, the globally acclaimed developer behind the racing simulation masterpiece Assetto Corsa.

In Hydrofoil Generation you will sit at the helm of state-of-the-art engineering marvels modeled with unprecedented physical accuracy, sailboats that can "fly" over water to speeds over 50kn.

Take control of the course, the sails trim and, most important , the foils. Keep your boat flying as high as possible to maximize speed but not so high to risk coming down with a splash or worse, as capsizing is just around the corner.

Deal with changing winds, different sea conditions, currents and up to 10 opponents in fierce multiplayer races.
Hydrofoil Generation is a demanding simulator that will push your skills and passion to the limit.

The Vessels

The game will enter Early Access with:

A 50ft modern foiling catamaran capable of speeds of up to 50kn.
A 40ft modern foiling monohull with automatic systems for ride height control.

You will be able to race these boats in several exciting locations such as Den Haag, Hong Kong and Bermuda, with carefully recreated coastlines.
