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?

“Like any other game in Early Access, we need your help to decide what goes in the game and what does not. Trailmakers is a construction game made out of thousands of small parts. There is an endless opportunity to adjust and add to the features in the game, and we have a plan of where we want the game to head. It’s up to you to tell us if that is the right direction. We will make frequent developer updates on Steam, our mailing list, twitter, facebook and discord to tell you where the game is headed. Write your suggestions and comments about the game on any of these platforms and we will see it.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our plan is to move out of Early Access, and have a 1.0 release in 2019.”

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

“In the first versions of Trailmakers, we are setting out to prove that the vehicle construction genre needs more purpose than simply building. Our current plans for expanding Trailmakers are:
  • Adding many many more building parts, both functional and cosmetic.
  • Adding a new exploration-themed game mode.
  • Adding dedicated servers.
  • Fixing bugs and optimizing the game every update.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version of Trailmakers is a solid foundation. It has the Rally Mode which is our main "campaign", the Sandbox Mode which is a free-form creative experience with two different maps available, the Dethrone mode which is a PVP mode, and a Race Island map with more race tracks similar to Rally but with fewer rules. All these modes combined have enough content to give you an idea of what the game can do, and serve as a basis for discussion. What needs work? What do you want more of?”

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

“The price of Trailmakers will be reviewed throughout Early Access.”

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

“It should be as easy as possible to tell us what you think of Trailmakers. Here is the current system we have in place to involve you in our development process.

Trading Cards and other loot

Hi Trailmakers! :makertool::tmchicken::tmlogo::trailmaker1::trailmaker2:

A short update from us this time. We've added a batch of Steam Trading Cards along with the emotes, profile backgrounds and badges that goes with them. The trading cards feature creations made by the community, so I'd like to send a big thank you to Lartzam, MexOff, SteelRain444, Muramatsu Kiko, and Ozy.

You're probably also wondering how our progress with the next update is coming along. Seeing all your excitement and hype after our Exploration Game Mode reveal has motivated us to make Exploration bigger and better. The consequence is that we are not currently delivering as frequent game updates as we used to. On the other hand, the next update will be by far the biggest Trailmakers update yet. I hope you have patience with us, and that you enjoy the Summer. Here's another sneak peek at what you have in store in the next Trailmakers update:

Tailwind Update + First Look at Exploration!

Tailwind Hotifx Notes
Firstly, thanks to everyone who has taken the time to check out the Tailwind update, we hope you're having fun with the new blocks, Rally races and general improvements we made to the game.

Since release we've had reports of a handful of bugs which we didn't want to wait until the next update to fix. This small update is now live, if you're curious what it fixesyou'll find the Changelist below.

Changelist for Tailwind Hotfix (
  • Fixed the bendy structures due to welding improvements made in Tailwind.
  • Fixed certain blocks being turned into others when duplicating on certain machines.
  • Fixed the Daily Challenge UI breaking after switching game modes and then completing a challenge.
  • Fixed Pistons with multiple parts connected sometimes deciding that those parts were actually disconnected.
  • Fixed the glitch which allowed free floating parts.
  • Fixed an issue with some VTOLs behaving differently.
  • Fixed an issue with the Snowball Dispenser when used on servers.

Exploration Update
The new Exploration mode is coming along nicely. It's very motivating to see so many of you excited for the update. The image in the top of this news post is a screenshot from the new map. Right now, we are busy sprinkling the map with challenges and hidden secrets.

The core gameplay of the new exploration mode will center around searching and retrieving. For that purpose, we are currently working on a new Magnet Block you can attach to vehicles. We can't wait to show you more from the new game mode - stay tuned.

Public Bug Trello
Since the Rally Update released we've been trialing a Public Bug Trello on Discord, and we'd like to bring in our Steam community members too. It's by no means a definitive list, but we wanted a nice, concise way for our users to be able to see which bugs we're aware of, if we're investigating, or if a fix is coming in the next update.

For more specific info you can read this Info Card.

Feature Suggestions Trello
We of course, also have our Public Feature Suggestions Trello which is a great resource for us as we plan future updates and content! If you see a feature on there you'd love to see in the game, take the time to vote it up! If it isn't there, let us know in the Steam Forums, or on our Discord!

“The best building in a game that I have ever seen – it’s just drag and drop, easy as pie!”

“I like the idea that I have a little environment to go around, not just building stuff in a test arena. A world to see!”

“I can see Trailmakers gaining a big audience with people who like Minecraft, the Kerbal Space Program and other creative games that aim to be limitless.”

About This Game

Building a car, airplane, helicopter or walking robot is as easy as playing with blocks. Take your machines on exciting rally races, race them against your friends, or build the craziest contraptions you can imagine in our huge sandbox.

  • Build intuitively with modular blocks - it is easy to get started, and the possibilities are almost infinite.
  • Go on breakneck rally races with vehicles of your own making.
  • There is always something to do: Join the Trailmakers Rally, take on challenges, play in the sandbox, race your friends or shoot each other to bits.
  • Create without constraints in two sandbox maps full of jumps, half pipes, an aircraft carrier, catapults and other crazy obstacles.
  • Compete on the global leaderboards in rally and race mode.
  • Four player drop in drop out multiplayer game modes.
  • An active and growing community with tons of premade vehicles ready to test.

EARLY ACCESS is short for: Trailmakers is a work in progress and will become better and bigger as development continues. Our aim is to ship significant updates at regular intervals.
