Mechanistry have released a new gameplay trailer for their upcoming city building game, Timberborn.
Timberborn enters Early Access Q1 2021 for Windows PC, and Mac (both via Steam). The game is set long after humanity has gone extinct, and has been replaced with intelligent, anthropomorphic beaver people. Build elaborate vertical colonies, and care for the needs of your beavers. The game also includes a level editor.
The closed beta will also be getting a large update on November 3rd. This update introduces dams, dynamite, new structures, reworks to farming and forestry, new maps and ruins, and more. You can read more about the update here.
You can find the new gameplay trailer below.
You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:
Mankind turned Earth into a wasteland and perished, but some species survived and evolved. Choose one of the unique beaver families and see how long your colony can last!
Endure catastrophic droughts thanks to millennia of experience in water engineering. Beavers of the future redirect rivers, put up dams and dig canals with explosives. But be careful, uncontrolled flooding is as deadly as a dynamite blast!
Turn timber into sophisticated machinery, buildings, and monuments. Wood is the core resource in Timberborn, but the most advanced structures require metal. To find it, send your scavengers to the ruins of the old world.
Create a thriving beaver settlement using a modular, vertical architecture system. Here, space isn’t infinite, so stack lodges and workshops on top of each other, cover hills with fields, and set up a power grid for your growing population.
Day and night cycle
Build a prosperous city with efficient production chains and beaverish nighttime activities. Follow the lives of individually simulated inhabitants throughout their day and celebrate when the next generation is born!
Satisfy the needs of your colonists to extend their lifespan and make them happier. An evolved beaver’s lifestyle is not just “work, sleep and chomp on wood”. Balanced diet, decorations, temples, even carousels – you take care of it all.
Unlock additional beaver families, each with unique style and traits. While one species might be okay working long shifts, another would rather focus on increasing the population – so choose what fits your playstyle.
Play on one of the included maps or create your own and share it with the community! With green hills of different height, ruins scattered in the desert, and twisting rivers you will build dams on, each map poses a different challenge.
We regularly add new features and iterate, based on the community’s feedback. We want to create a city-builder like no other, so stay in the loop and add Timberborn to your wishlist today!
