Timberborn: The Biber City Builder lands in the Steam charts


Timberborn, a city builder in which you control cute beavers, has only been available as an early access title for a few days, but can already pat itself on the wooden shoulder. Because the game landed immediately in the Steam sales charts. Initially in second place, only overtaken by Arcane's time loop shooter Deathloop, meanwhile slipped a bit to sixth place.

Nevertheless, the success of the beaver construction simulation is impressive. Timberborn was able to book over 5000 players at the same time on launch day. Together with all future players, they can test the title for about a year in Early Access and then give the developers their feedback so that Timberborn is further polished and does not start to splinter.

Made of good wood

Although Timberborn is still in Early Access, the construction simulation already has a lot to offer. No wonder, after all, the title has been in development since 2018 and has benefited from numerous testers from the community for some time. As the Timberborn trailer shows, as in other city builders, you can choose a faction at the beginning, even if only two are currently available: The Rustic Rods and the Iron Teeth.

If you have decided on one of the two, you can plunge into the construction madness. As the name of the game suggests, the main resource is of course wood. After all, beavers are naturally best at handling this. In order to ensure the survival of the colony and to pick up where the lost human race failed, you of course have to build a functioning settlement and prepare yourself for all eventualities your cultivated forage too, so supplies are essential. So that you don't waste too much land, you can also raise your buildings vertically and create new rivers to design the surrounding area with dynamite.

‘Timberborn’ is a “lumberpunk” city builder game about beavers

One of the more unusual games to launch in Steam Early Access for a while is a post-apocalypse beaver-based city builder called Timberborn.

Described as a “lumberpunk” game, Timberborn is a game that tasks players with building a self-sustaining city in a post-apocalyptic, human-free landscape, designed and built by beavers.

The super-smart beavers will respond to city planning, building dams, canals, and reservoirs to control the power and water supplies of the city, making up for the ecological damage humanity has wrought on the world prior to their demise.

Two factions are currently available, the nature-friendly Folktails or the industrious Iron Teeth, each bringing unique gameplay and buildings to the game. Water and wood are the main concerns of Timberborn, using the two materials in clever ways to power, feed, purify, clean, and farm in your city.

Timberborn also introduces a vertical architecture system that allows buildings to be constructed on top of each other using platforms and bridges.

The game is currently in Early Access on Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store. The Steam page estimates that Timberborn will remain in Early Access for at least a year, as the developers gather feedback and suggestions on the game.

In other news, Iron Gate Studios have released the long-awaited Hearth and Home update for Valheim that updates building and eating.
