Welcome to the Ultimate Expedition!

Journey over grueling mountains, hazardous swamps, and bone-dry deserts on a distant planet far from civilization - it is just you, your fellow adventurers and the amazing, jet-powered hover-buggy you built yourself.

Get lost, crash a vehicle, use your wits to build a better one, and get as far as you can with whatever spare parts you find on your way.

Trailmakers is about building awesome vehicles and contraptions. Everything you build is made from physical building blocks. All blocks have unique features like shape, weight and functionality. They can be broken off, refitted and used to build new vehicles. Each block’s shape plays a role as wind and aerodynamics is an important part of the gameplay. The blocks are fairly simple but combined the possibilities are endless.

In Expedition Mode the goal is to journey into the unknown to get as far as you can. You start on an island with a few building blocks. You must build and rebuild a machine, traverse a BIG world and overcome deep gorges, angry wildlife and all kinds of weather to progress and find new parts that will juice up your rig. The world in Expedition Mode will test your survival skills and ingenuity. With the checkpoint in sight but no wheels and no wings, how do you and your four jet-engines get across the canyon?

Creative Mode is an unrestricted, sandbox, vehicle-building experience where you can build anything you can dream of and play around with it in the world of Trailmakers. It is a great place to test out crazy machines, and experiment with Trailmaker engineering. With tons of different blocks, hinges, thrusters and interactive vehicle parts - the sky's the limit... Unless you build a helicopter we suppose.

Trailmakers is even more fun if you play it with a friend. Put two seats in your vehicle or race each other towards that last jet thruster - it is up to you. Both Creative and Expedition Mode support multiplayer.

Since Trailmakers is all about being creative, we want to extend the customization aspect of the game into modding territory. We hope people will experiment with Trailmakers and surprise us with brand new game modes and creations.

We make Trailmakers in Unity. The earliest version will be for Windows only, but we will support a large array of operating systems and platforms in the future.

We are Flashbulb Games[]. A fairly new studio, founded April '16, but the team has worked together for many years in Press Play (a Microsoft game studio).

Together the team created console titles like Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Kalimba as well as mobile hits like Max & the Magic Marker.
