Timberborn, the giant beaver city builder, has undergone a major update for the first time since the early access version was launched in September, and there are some neat new things in the works in the city construction game about the cool city that the beavers will build after we all die.
In a major update just released this week, Timberborn’s Beaver gained the ability to make a mechanical water pump, a large suction cup designed to move large amounts of water vertically upwards. It used to be a bit stuck on water that was moving horizontally or downwards, now your beaver can use the correct scientific pumping to irrigate high places or build reservoirs on mountain peaks. It might even add a new waterfall to the world.
There are many new things inside Full patch notes, For example: new buildings such as observatory, public swimming pool and thermal mud bath. Mine unlimited metals, new crops and resources, chestnuts, etc.
Timberborn is colder than other survival city builders and more tolerant than games like exile. The stars are huge intelligent beavers. It also starred water, built dams, sluices, sluices, and now using pumps to influence water flow and ensure water supply during droughts is the cornerstone of the gameplay. I like its essence very much.
It’s not really finished yet, and it lacks what some might call “endgame content”, but if you are the kind of player who likes to build beautiful cities, then here is an interesting builder. “Nurturing the forests and rivers around you, instead of endlessly consuming everything around you, brings benefits to Timberborn’s health display. Your settlement feels like a home, not just a huge hunger machine, “Sam Greer is playing with.
Timberborn’s Early Access Edition is priced at $25 On Steam.
