What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is the ideal platform for the massive, ambitious project of developing Stormworks: Build and Rescue. Working with players will help us decide what new content to make, and how to tune the gameplay to create the best experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect Early Access to last around a year.”

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

“The full version of Stormworks: Build and Rescue will include new modules for creating your vehicles, more islands to experience, and more missions to take on for your coastguard team!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The vehicle designer is already in place, allowing you to craft, customise and pilot land, sea and air vehicles. You can also use the powerful logic system to pull off complex techniques.

A selection of islands for you to explore and purchase have been created, as well as a number of missions to use your vehicles in.”

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

“Yes, the price of the game will increase when leaving Early Access.”

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

“The Early Access community will be vital to everything we do - From coming up with new missions to improving our building system, we plan on working closely with our players to create a fantastic experience for you to Build and Rescue!”

v0.6.8 (The Instrument Panel Update)



Dear Stormworkers,

This week's minor update brings a new component for creating dashboards, cockpits and displays!

The new Instrument Panel component compacts the existing dials and buttons into a smaller form factor, allowing you to put up to 4 on one block. This is great for IO on smaller vehicles where space is limited. Each instrument has a composite logic input and output for controlling their behaviour from a microcontroller. This component has a lot of possibilities and we're looking forward to seeing what you create with it.

There are also a number of fixes in this patch, the full list of which can be found in the changelog below.

Much Love <3
