I’ve been playing around with Townscaper today, a delightful little program that lets you build islands. I can’t really call it a game, as it has no parameters for completion. I like to think of it as a mindful relaxation experience, and to be honest I just lost 2 hours to it without even realising! This afternoon I created a grand island that I imagined to be the infamous DIG island, with the fabulous DIG tower as a main focus.
Build quaint island towns with curvy streets. Build small hamlets, soaring cathedrals, canal networks, or sky cities on stilts. Block by block.
No goal. No real gameplay. Just plenty of building and plenty of beauty. That’s it.
Townscaper is an experimental passion project. More of a toy than a game. Pick colours from the palette, plop down coloured blocks of house on the irregular grid, and watch Townscaper’s underlying algorithm automatically turn those blocks into cute little houses, arches, stairways, bridges and lush backyards, depending on their configuration.STEAM< STORE PAGE
