What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Make Sail is a building game. We need builders to push the game's technical and design limits. We can only guess at what our most creative players will make. A feedback loop between players and developers will shape Make Sail into the best buoyantly bouncing boat building spectacle it can be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“One year.”

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

“More construction pieces, more islands, more creatures, Steam Workshop sharing, more polish, new game+, and, of course, fewer bugs. Much depends on what the community is hungry for.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It's fun. It's beautiful. You can build boats and power them with square sails, triangle sails, energy sails, jets and propellers. There's a primary quest with about 4 hours of exploration and collection. You can spend days making boats that each handle uniquely in the wind and water.”

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

“We may raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

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

“Join Make Sail's team on discord (https://discord.gg/popcannibal), the steam forums, and email.

We want to know what you're making or what you're trying to make and why you can't. What's too hard and what's not hard enough?”

Creative Mode is Here!

Today we release our biggest update yet: Creative Mode!




Creative Mode
Make Sail is was already a game about your ideas and your creations. Now, there's a whole set of new toys for you to play with!

Creative Mode is a new option right from the start menu. Its an open ocean where you can build with unlimited amounts of every piece.

Want 30 wooden birds, a 40 foot tall sail made of shimmering energy and enough jets to get serious airtime? Doooo iiiit.



But what's really new is the creative control panel!



Press C while any time in Creative Mode and now you can control:

  • Ocean wave intensity!
  • Wind strength!
  • Storm effects!
  • The very pace of time!
And quick access to the cheats!

Story Mode Totems!

Fans of progression, we've got a big new feature for you too. We didn't want all those new pieces to only be accessible in Creative Mode. So we've carefully scattered hundreds of totems throughout the sea. Each totem you knock over will grant you one piece.

Just be careful not to sink yourself in the attempt!

About This Game

Make boats and sail them. Build, explore, expand, discover. Sail your ships through changing water and wind inside the eye of a storm.



Snap together planks, poles, sails, masts, jets, propellers, balloons, sparklers and more. Take care that it floats....and right side up.

Cross the sea to find pieces to make your ship bigger, faster, stronger, prettier, stranger, wilder: more yours.

Every island lets you redesign and rebuild.




The world is a procedural arrangement of crafted islands, pieces and creatures. Each replay will present different challenges and opportunities at different stages of gameplay.

As you push the storm back, new islands and new waters become available to explore. Find new pieces for your creations, escape giant creatures, and push onwards to escape.
