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?”

New creature: Giant Turtles



Giant Sea Turtles

At 5,000kg, our majestic sea turtle weights about as much as the tongues of two blue whales. (Or one t-rex for those of you who prefer traditional measurements)

They instinctively swim upwind, so consider attempting to climb aboard for a ride. Maybe even land your boat on one if you're feeling fancy.

Each turtle carries an exclusive piece: the Sea Turtle Square Sail. Our first stack-able sail. Guaranteed to get you into trouble faster.

Other updates
Lots of AI work this month. All creatures have more vertical variation to their flight patterns. They're also a touch easier to stand on if you can get there in the first place. They know your innermost feelings but are too polite to bring them up.

You can also now press escape or r to move back to build mode from placement mode, in case you forgot to add cup-holders or something.

Full Changelog

  • Turtle Islands
  • Turtle Sails (exclusively found on turtle islands)
  • Improved sail behaviors when sideways, upside down, or propped open
  • Option to return to build mode from place boat mode
  • Fixed error which could cause boat name menu to appear at wrong times
  • Clarified the below-minimum-specification warning menu
  • Fixed issue which caused player to slide off some rotating pieces
  • Via twitch, the "storm" trigger no longer requires accent marks in Vietnamese: "bao tap"
    (because that's the feature everyone's been waiting for)
  • Updated to Unity 2017.4.5

Center of Mass



By request: a center of mass indicator! For all you boat crafters working to achieve greater design perfection, we now have a little green dot showing the center of mass.

If your hand was giant and inside the game, this is the point where you could balance the boat on your finger tip.

So now you can know, without even having to put your boat in the water, that the 5 meter tower of stone you piled on the nose of your boat will indeed be a problem.

Full Changelog
  • Center of mass indicator. Turn on in build settings.
  • Never drown cheat.
  • Simpler inventory display when using all inventory cheat.
  • Fixed a bug which could cause boats not to be visible when building.
  • Fixed duplication bug on some pieces. (Thanks Nixae)
  • Fixed jitter on the ropes atop gas buoys.

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.
