Early Access Game

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

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We need feedback. The game has a lot of content that is ready to roll out but we need YOU to help us make this game great. We eventually want to build more entertaining modes for the game such as Career mode and possibly multiplayer modes. We can't do that until we know that people like the core of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to be in early access for 9 - 12 months. Depending on the amount of feedback and support from fans we might be able to release our full version earlier.”

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

“The full version will have additional modes and meta game goals. We will add several new forklifts and at least one other forklift type. There will be new locations and types of loads added. There might also be online leaderboards and stat comparison with your friends.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Our Early Access version starts with 42 tutorial and challenges that will teach users about forklift operation and test their skills. At the end of the challenges and training, there is a final exam.”

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

“The price will not change after the game has left early access.”

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

“How are we planning to involve the Community in our development process? We plan to rely heavily on YOU, the Community during our development. We know what we want and what we can do but that isn't enough. We need all of our fans to support us by providing suggestions and feedback during the Early Access phase and beyond. There's no way we could do this without the community and that's why we're starting with Early Access before we launch the final product.

Early Access Patch Notes - 12.14.2018

Hello Forklift Fans,

We're posting this week's update a day late and a proverbial dollar short. We have a surprise for next week and we continue to add features and improve the game.

  • Added New Forklift: Side Stance Reach Truck + Learning the Basics Lessons
  • Added Full Localization Support and Temporary "Computer Translations" for 10 languages.
  • French, Italian, German, Japanese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, and Spanish are now supported
    (If you want to help with translations please email us)
  • The game now pauses when you open the pause menu
  • Improved VR menu functionality, snaps to cardinal direction so you can always see it.

No VR controller support for Side Stance Reach Truck
Loading Screen Text is not localized
"Next Lesson" button for some Side Stance Reach Truck lessons is missing

Like I said, we are posting this update on Friday instead of our target date of Thursday for a few reasons. First, we desprately wanted to deliver the total rewrite of the control system into the game. This controller overhaul will add support for almost every wheel as well as tons of input devices you may be using. Second, almost all of our team is taking off early for the holidays. We wanted to pack as many updates into this build because there will only be a few of us left in the office for next week's update.

On the topic of Holidays. We've had a long year and are looking forward to spending time with our families. We will be out of the office beginning 22.12.2018 and we will return 07.01.2019. After next week our next game update is scheduled for 10.01.2019.


We have everything ready to roll out the controller system upgrade. We just need more time for testing such a major change. On Monday or Tuesday of next week we plan to upload a bonus update. This bonus update is in addition to our standard weekly update.


Next Thursday we are planning to add the virtual controls for the Side Stance Reach Truck, Bug Fixes for the Side Stance Reach Truck lesson completion, and Oculus controller support.

Keep sending feedback we love it!

Also, if you missed it, we have been playing Forklift Simulator 2019 on our Twitch channel. "Twitch Tuesdays at Two" (2pm Pacific)

Early Access Patch Notes - 12.06.2018

Hello Forklift Fans,

It's Thursday again and that means another update for Forklift Simulator 2019. Here are the notes:

New Features
  • Vive Control Support Added
  • Vive Control Layout Added to Controls Menu

  • Display Option added to disable Tunnel Vision Vignette
  • Display Option readded to reset VR headset location
  • Forklift does not move when game is paused
  • Non-VR camera is more realistic, cannot spin 360 when seated
  • Non-VR camera can be reset by holding R3

Updates / Bug Fixes
  • Keyboard Controls Updated
  • Disabled legacy UI panel
  • Mission Complete Screen Location in VR fixed
  • VR Credits bug fixed

We tried really hard to get wheel support in this patch. It turns out there are more than a few issues with that. So, we are modifying our input system which will allow us to support almost every wheel type ever made in addition to a bunch of other controller types. This should be in next week and it will also come with a full customization screen. You'll be able to modify the button mapping for all supported devices, Mouse and Keyboard, Controller, Wheel, and even some motion controls.

In addition to wheel support, next week we are planning to introduce the side stance reach truck and it's associated training challenges. If things go really well, we might also have the first pass of localization complete.

Thanks to everyone who's supporting us. We hope these updates are improving the game and making it better. Please let us know in the comments and on the discussion board.
