Best Forklift Operator is now available on Steam!

Best Forklift Operator has full VR support. This mode will give you an unprecedented level of immersion and make you feel like driving a real thing which is not as easy to master as it may seem. Best Forklift Operator can also be played in the traditional way, using a mouse and keyboard or a gamepad.

Best Forklift Operator is a simulation game that gives players a unique opportunity to test their skills as an operator. It will be up to them to ensure that the supply chain is not interrupted, and the goods will make it to factories and warehouses. At the very beginning of the game, there's a mandatory training sequence. After getting proper permissions, the real career starts. Players will be able to earn money by completing new tasks quickly and efficiently. However, every mistake results in a financial penalty.

Key features of Best Forklift Operator in Early Access:

  • Realistic forklift driving model
  • Full VR support
  • Two warehouses
  • Two forklifts with customizable colors
  • Five missions for each warehouse, plus two additional missions based on randomly generated cargo

  • New forklift
  • Leaderboards that allow you to compare your results with players from around the world
  • New missions
  • Arcade Mode
  • Steam Achievements
