Make Sail gets day one Linux release on Early Access. The games also available for Mac and Windows. While Popcannibal begins the one year journey on Steam. Which is interesting for such a release, supporting all three platforms.
For those who do not know, Make Sail is a physics construction adventure. Where players can create sailboats and navigate through advanced water and wind simulations. So it mixes realistic physics with a fantastical setting.
While players build something beautiful or ridiculous. It’s up to you and how you want to sail on to the next island. Searching of more items to customize your craft.
Make Sail is a love letter to the beauties of the sea. And also journeys of self-reliance, in a singleplayer game.
“Most video game boats are sluggish cars that ignore the wind. Our boats are wild horses of your own design, rooted in real physics, crafted to challenge the elements, chariots fit for the sea gods! They also break up and sink a lot. It’s fun.” Ziba Scott, Developer
