Today publisher Green Man Gaming and developer Sunfire Software announced their new game Stormworks: Build and Rescue. In this title players are able to create their own vehicles such as helicopters, boats, or buggys and pilot them across procedurally generated worlds.
You can find a full description and features list, straight from the developer, below:
Stormworks: Build and Rescue will challenge your mechanical and design skills to create the ultimate programmable, block based rescue vehicle. Share your design online and tackle the dynamic and ever changing weather patterns of an unforgiving sea. That is if you have the skill and design prowess to even make it off the launch pad.
BUILD, PLAN, RESCUE: Stormworks: Build and Rescue is the game where you design and pilot your own sea-rescue service, in a rich and dramatic physics playground. Take your custom-designed, block based and programmable vehicles into fierce oceanic storms. Plan and execute thrilling rescues in a variety of challenging crisis scenarios. Export and share your meticulously designed vehicles with others.
DESIGN YOUR VEHICLE: Design vehicles by placing blocks in a rich editing suite, customise them with paint, and program the behaviour using the powerful logic system. Choose from a wide array of components for designing helicopters, boats, and more.
NAVIGATE, STEER, PILOT: Take charge of your vehicles’ in a physics driven sandbox simulation – where your vehicles performance is a direct result of your design. Use dials and indicator components to display feedback on the vehicles logic system, whilst pushing your designs to the limit in fierce weather.
RUN YOUR OWN COASTGUARD: Take on missions to run your own coastguard service. Design specific vehicles to respond to emergencies and cargo missions across open oceans, island facilities, remote rigs and more.
DRAMATIC, SIMULATED WORLD: The day-night cycle and dynamic weather system creates diverse environments – from still sunny mornings, to fierce stormy nights. Strong winds can turn the ocean from gentle ripples to fierce heaving waves, affecting the vehicles using a physics based displacement-buoyancy system.
You can check out some screenshots, as well as an announcement trailer for the game, at the end of this article.
Stormworld: Build and Rescue will be available exclusively on PC, and will be a part of Steam’s Early Access program later this year, however no date for the official release was given.
