The Dinkum Roadmap has been revealed, giving us a first look at the updates we can expect for the Australian-themed sandbox game that's all set to launch on Steam later this week.

First revealed back in 2019Dinkum is a game that's part Animal Crossing, part Stardew Valley. Players leave their depressing life in the city to live on an Australian-themed island and change it from a camp into a thriving town, inviting new people to join their budding village. Check out the game's release date trailer to get a feel for its vibe:

 

Dinkum looks like a fair amount of fun, but what you see in the trailer is just the beginning -- developer James Bendon has quite a few new features planned for the future of this game as shown in the Dinkum Roadmap revealed earlier today.

I will reveal more details on these updates closer to the dates, so stay tuned! But, there’s another reason I went the Early Access route.

 
 

"I decided to release Dinkum as an Early Access game so I can watch the community play and respond to what interests players. I’m sure I’ll hear some great ideas and suggestions that may never have occurred to me. I want the community to help create Dinkum! That way we can make Dinkum the best experience it can be."
