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.

Thunderful and Headup are pleased to announce that Tinkertown, is coming to PC on June 22nd, where it is Steam Deck verified, and later on consoles. 

With the game exiting Early Access on June 22nd, new features for the release include a Journal that will accompany you on your epic adventure showing NPCs, achievements and quests - with all quest progress and rewards shared between players on the server meaning everyone can reap their well deserved rewards. Another new feature introduces rapport building with NPCs by solving quests and upgrading their houses with decorations they like, which will grant players additional rewards! The Journal also includes recipes and resources found during your travels with hints leading to new discoveries as well as a Bestiary that shows all the monsters you've encountered, where to find them, when to find them and their specific lore.

“After the great reception and feedback we received during Tinkertown’s early access we have been working hard on the final product and can't wait for you to experience this adventure with friends or on your own,” said Julian Reinartz, Development Lead of Tinkertown.

Key Features:

  • Explore beautiful landscapes such as mystical forests, great deserts, steaming lava mountains, and more.
  • Craft new equipment and become a rogue, a warrior, or wizard - or create a new loadout and invent your own play-style.
  • Gather resources and discover new things to build.
  • Build your own habitat - by yourself, or online with up to three friends.
  • Descent into combat driven dungeons and battle large underworld bosses.

Currently available through Steam Early Access, Tinkertown is coming to PC (Steam) on June 22, 2023, followed by consoles at a later time.
