I have been adoring Oskar Stålberg‘s budding idle gamer Townscaper for some time now, but today I realized that it’s available on Mac on Steam! So I immediately got it and started playing with it. It’s a blast to have a beautiful blank canvas to play with!
Here are some towns I’ve built. I’ll be adding more here over time. (design saves at the end)
My first design! I love the colors, and the lighthouses look fabulous!
I went a little crazy with this one. It was interesting to build a town that’s accessible even to it’s own residents mostly by water. The houses on the right are beautiful single family (single person?) homes and the central tower is 29 floors! I had a different design in my mind, but this one just came about.
I love the French town of Mont Saint Michel and hope to visit it one day. It’s a strange place and Oskar has said that it’s one of his inspirations for Townscaper, so getting this game was just meant to be!
Wishlist for the game –
I hope Oskar adds the following –
- Actual lighthouses – I would love these!
- Proper beaches – right now, in certain cases, a small beach shows up near some houses. I’d love a proper beach area!
- Trees! I would love trees that I can manually place!
- Little people – Birds are aplenty in Townscaper and it’s a lot of fun to watch them fly around. But I’d love to see little humans cycling around our towns!
If you’re reading till here. Go buy the game. It’s awesome and only six bucks!
