Oi, you. Are you in search of a very good time? A comfortable time? I’ve received *opens trenchcoat* Townscaper, a no-stress little constructing toy. You may see colors for days, mate. Buildings popping up in all manners of sizes and styles, no aims or nuffin’. Ahh, you need the brand new stuff, eh? Properly fortunate you, I simply received some Gourdlets in.
Gourdlets is one other city-building sandbox with no function past putting stuff you suppose appears good, solely this time little blob dudes will come go to and work together with what you have constructed. The primary style is free, by which I imply there’s an Itch demo you may tinker with whereas we watch for the Steam model.
There’s admittedly little or no to it, particularly in the mean time. You select between a handful of terrain sorts and some buildings, then sprinkle in an assortment of timber, lamp posts and flowerbeds. The trailer above reveals gourdlets singing and farming, however I can not get mine to do something besides potter about.
Whereas this lacks the slick, stunning ingredient of your buildings flowing into one another to type new formations like they do in Townscaper, seeing your gourdlets pootle round your creations may make up for that. Like within the trailer, the place it appears you may pop a pool down and a li’l fella will come fish. Place a campfire and somebody will rock as much as toast marshmallows. Yeah. Extra of that form of factor.
That is precisely what creator Aunty Video games is engaged on, saying they plan so as to add “extra attention-grabbing character interactions”, in addition to extra objects, seasons, climate, extra music and “the flexibility to call gourdlets”.
In my opinion, I’ve already damaged the sport by attempting to lure my gourds inside a fiery hellscape.
You possibly can deal with your personal gourdlets way more properly within the free Itch demo, or wishlist the upcoming full model on Steam.
