ABOUT HOMEBREW – VEHICLE SANDBOX

Homebrew is a physics based vehicle sandbox, where you can bring your concepts to life. It will challenge your creativity and problem solving skills by providing you with the right tools!


Homebrew has a steep learning curve, if you’re looking for a game where you lose track of time perfecting your creations, testing them in a vast world and searching for new approaches/solutions then this is the game for you.


The game is developed with a passion for science, input of the community and a strong belief that building should be fun and that only lack of freedom and tools can hold you back. With this in mind we try to set out as few limits as possible.
