'Tinkertown' Steam Early Access Update Adds Fishing, Farming, Cooking & More

by Rainier on April 23, 2021 @ 4:00 a.m. PDT

Tinkertown features a procedurally generated open world, which can be explored alone or via simple drop-in-drop-out multiplayer with up to three friends online.

Come to Tinkertown - A refreshing new Multiplayer Sandbox Experience! Grab your shovel, your pickaxe, and your sword and enter the realms of Tinkertown. A magical place awaits filled with loot, danger, and creativity. Build your own village - from small shacks to impressive castles and townships.

Tinkertown features a procedurally generated open world, which can be explored alone or via simple drop-in-drop-out multiplayer with up to three friends online. Sinister dungeons offer an additional challenge with merciless battles, but reward the players with epic loot, which can be used for numerous crafting possibilities.

The game world captivates with handmade pixel graphics and offers a dynamic day and night cycle, creating a very special, magical atmosphere. There are various biomes to explore, such as mystical forests, vast deserts, chilling ice tundras and mountains with glowing rivers of lava. And above all that, you will find one thing: Loot, Loot, Loot!

Utilizing many resources as well as countless blueprints and crafting recipes, there are no limits to the design possibilities in Tinkertown. Besides tools, armor and different weapons, players can also craft furniture, workshops and machines. This way, a small village can rise from an initial hut in no time, and eventually whole settlements and impressive cities will emerge.

By equipping their character with different types of weapons and armor, each player experiences Tinkertown their own way - as a rogue, warrior, mage, or in a self-created role. Character specialization is especially useful, because in this colorful world many dangers are lurking: In addition to small enemies, which will make life difficult for the player on the overworld right from the start, powerful bosses are waiting in the combat-orientated dungeons.

In addition to more languages (French, German and simpl. Chinese), the “Back to Nature update" adds many new "farm-tastic" features: players will finally be able to harvest crops and trees, go fishing and cook delicious meals! Those meals will also bring new buffs that make you harder, better, faster and stronger. But beware! Enemies can weaken you with their own debuffs now, too!

For giving potential customers another reason to get the game, Headup Games will run a 25% discount from Friday, April 23 until Tuesday, April 27.

Tinkertown is available on Steam Early Access.
