Delightfully toy-like island builder Townscaper is leaving early access this August, developer Oskar Stålberg revealed during GameSpot's Play For All E3 livestream this week.
A fairly simple little town builder, Townscaper is a wonderful canvas for creating all manner of quaint seaside villages. Starting from a blank ocean, you pop down houses like colourful Lego bricks, slowly assembling anything from sprawling coastal towns to towering, multi-levelled citadels.
Jacob named it his personal pick of 2020, calling Townscaper a perfect breather from the stress of modern life (opens in new tab). Since release, it's gotten a few updates—letting you move the sun, turn off textures for a more minimalist look, and adding propellers to the bottom of flying buildings.
Stålberg hasn't detailed any bold new features coming with 1.0 besides a Switch port. But keep your ears open for more when we get an exact release date later this summer.
