'Timberborn' Celebrates Two Years Of Early Access With One Million Copies Sold - Trailer

by Rainier on Sept. 15, 2023 @ 10:54 a.m. PDT

Timberborn is a beaver city-building game featuring ingenious animals, vertical architecture, and river control (with dams and dynamite!).

Humans are gone. Will your society of lumberpunk beavers do better?

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.

Timberborn is celebrating its two-year Early Access (Steam, GOG and Epic Games Store) anniversary!

Since September 15th, 2021, the game has sold over one million copies.

To celebrate these milestones, Mechanistry has released a new gameplay trailer showcasing the game’s signature features such as the two beaver factions, vertical architecture, post-apocalyptic droughts, and water physics.

Timberborn is our debut title – when it launched on September 15, 2021, we were unsure what to expect. We chose the self-publishing route and, operating on an indie budget, that launch was our studio’s make or break. Two years and a million copies sold later, we’re proud to have a thriving community of dedicated players and a game we continue to improve, working towards the 1.0 launch” - says Kamil Dawidów, Mechanistry’s Co-CEO.

Mechanistry is now working on its fifth major content update for the game, soon to be released onto Timberborn’s experimental branch.

The new Timberborn gameplay trailer published today is narrated by Elle Newlands, known for her roles in Diablo 4 and Apex Legends, among other titles.

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.

Timberborn is coming to PC (Steam/GOG/Epic Games Store).
