It's been a good week for fans of colony sims and city builders -- Timberborn sales have surpassed 100,000 copies in its first week.
Timberborn is a new game from Mechanistry that launched just over a week ago. It's set in a world where humans are long gone -- it's now time for beavers to take the reigns, and it's up to you to keep these adorable little buggers alive.
Players can shape the land to build their Beaver society through a mix of tools such as dams and high explosives. It's a ton of fun, and it looks like it's struck a chord with the gaming community based on the first week of Timberborn sales.
Mechanistry Details Timberborn Sales, Talks Future Updates
Mechanistry "couldn't ask for a better reward" than the first week of Timberborn sales: it's announced that the survival city builder game has sold over 130,000 copies. It also happens to have a 94% positive rating on Steam.
In the time since launch, the game's development team has focused on hotfixes and crushing bugs. The work is far from over, though, and Mechanistry has revealed its plans for the immediate future. An improved save system and a more robust tutorial are "immediate priorities" for the coming weeks. Adding to that are plans to add cloud save and GeForce Now support.
What about content, though? Well, Mechanistry says that it's been going over community suggestions and is picking out the best ideas for new content. One of these upcoming additions is said to "tickle your 'fency,'" so it seems that we might be getting fences sometime soon.
For now, there's plenty of fun to be had in Timberborn -- check out our Beginner's Guide to learn how to get started with this game. You can buy Timberborn on PC via the game's official website for $24.99 or your regional equivalent.
