Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

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?”

Multi-Sail Controls!



Mail SailS

Here at Popcannibal, we're committed to empowering you to make bold and questionable nautical designs in the safety of your own home.

Previously there were some limitations regarding how many sails you could operate at once. And no way to operate both square and triangle sails on the same boat. Now, if you have square and triangle sails, the control tips will inform you that you can hold shift to operate the square sails as you normally would.

So, please, stick 32 sails on your boat and aim for the moon. (If you do reach the moon, please file a bug report, that's not really possible).

More seriously, even just a pair of a single triangle and a square sail are a very capable combo that lets you steer sharply, but raise the halyard and really take off downwind when you need it.

Also, triangle sails can now freely rotate just shy of 180 degrees. This will let you sail sail at new angles and make slowing to a halt much easier.

Plus: bugfixes!

Full Release Notes
  • Control multiple triangle sails
  • Control square and triangle sails independently (hold shift)
  • Triangle sails can swing much wider
  • Better default rotation for several pieces
  • Jellyfish magnet prototype (cheats required)
  • Fix: Symmetry tool failed for some pieces
  • Fix: Walrus tusk less weird

Symmetry Mode!



Why click twice when once will do?

Building just keeps on getting better! Press the spacebar while building to toggle symmetric building on the forward axis of your boat.

Symmetry can work in combination with cloning (hold alt) and grabbing groups (long press mouse). Duplicate complex chunks, rotate them and mirror them in one swift motion!

Less bad weirdness, more good weirdness

Boats shouldn't fall from the sky when you're trying to edit them. So we stopped doing that. Oceans should be full of bouncing jellyfish full of energy, so we're doing lots more of that.

Preview the next update now!
Creative mode isn't done, but it's available for troublemakers like you to poke at. Just hop in to the discord and we'll set you up. We'd love your feedback!


Full change list
  • Symmetry Mode! Build boats twice as fast! Press spacebar to toggle while building.
  • Tutorial entry for symmetry mode.
  • Note: symmetry mode does not duplicate energy sails.
  • Generally improved build snapping consistency. Should reduce surprise deconstructions.
  • Improved the symmetry of many build in boat blueprints.
  • Fixed: Jellyfish spawn bug. Way more jellyfish now.
  • Fixed: Errors when cloning and rotating some complex pieces like Trireme Sails.
  • Fixed: That stupid bug where the boat would fall from the sky upon entering build mode. I got you, stupid bug.
  • Fixed: Deleted energy sails were producing save file and log garbage.
  • Fixed: Energy sail build cursor image.
  • Fixed: Highlighted pieces not unhighlighting when exiting building.
  • Fixed: First grabbed piece sometimes didn't want to snap.
  • Fixed: Shifted some islands to make it harder to get stuck under them.
  • Upgraded to Unity 2017.4.8

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.
