Be ready to explore the Australian Outback in a way never seen before in Dinkum, an indie simulation survival game.

Dinkum is a game developed by James Bendon, where you must explore and then slowly build up a town in the Australian Outback. Start by sleeping under the stars in a tent, while you farm, chop wood, and grow crops, all to attract townsfolk and new businesses to your burgeoning community.  Play the game alone or in co-op with some friends as you explore the untamed wilderness and battle it out against some of the deadliest animals in the world. Will you survive and thrive?

Featuring gameplay reminiscent of Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing, Dinkum offers plenty of customization for players to really sink their teeth into. Dinkum is available for the PC.

Go from starting out sleeping in a swag under the stars, to a sprawling town with farms, businesses and attractions. Eventually, you’ll draw in visitors, who might decide to stay and make it their home too.

Keep your neighbours happy by customising your town with fences, flower beds, street lamps, beehives, windmills, hedges, fountains and more. The happier your townsfolk are the more likely they are to settle down, bring their families and set up stores with unique items.

Invite your friends to visit your town where they can help you construct buildings, shop at your stores, go fishing, race Emus, fight crocodiles much more!

The island is Choc-A-Bloc with insects, fish and minerals. So grab your thongs and go track down and collect them all for your personal museum collection, or sell them for a tidy profit!


Care for and breed chickens, cows and sheep as well as Dinkum’s iconic Giant Wombats! The Wombats might seem intimidating at first, but really they are sweethearts.

Cultivate crops for your town across the whole island, choosing the best spots for each type. Not only do the seasons change, but the temperature shifts depending on where you are on the island

Hunt animals for food and defend yourself from deadly predators who are just as hungry as you. Those Roos might seem friendly but they pack a punch!

Customize your character in Dinkum to be the True Blue version of you. Buy that shiny pair of sunnies or wide Akubra hat in the shop, or seek out rare items through exploring the great outdoors and through chinwags with fellow townsfolk.

Make your house your own cozy abode. Craft a huge range of furniture and decorations choose where everything goes and invite friends over to show off your interior designer creds.
