Developer Oskar Stålberg and publisher Raw Fury have brought the tranquil experience of Townscaper to the world of VR. The toy box title offers a cozy atmosphere for players to explore as they assemble towns before their very eyes. Townscaper has already made a presence in the PC and mobile realms, but it now comes to virtual reality fanatics. If you haven’t heard of Townscaper or its VR launch, you might want to check out the content below for more info.
Townscaper, It’s More of a Toy Than a Traditional Video Game
Townscaper is a passion project of Oskar Stålberg that was boosted by the publishing strength of Raw Fury. Essentially, it’s an instantaneous town-building simulation where the building aspect is the only goal. No story, no stress, no enemies. Just the simple act of putting together your own town. By utilizing the game’s unique blocking algorithm, your pieces will automatically form to complete structures.
Of course, the Townscaper VR launch won’t be complete without a trailer demonstrating the digital magic. It’s a basic overview of what is achievable as we navigate the builds being chosen by the VR avatar. It’s as easy as selecting a color, pointing your controllers, then picking the proper placement to your heart’s content. Coupled with soothing music, the footage presents what’s possible when you get lost in the creative process.
Townscaper introduced itself in 2021 for PC and mobile platforms, which received high praise from players and critics alike. Steam and Epic Games Store users can now access the title and the case for iOS and Android devices. As a side note, Townscaper offers a 40% discount via its Steam page for interested players.
Raw Fury is behind several well-known indie titles that have gathered their fair share of positive reception. Their published games include Dome Keeper, Call of the Sea, Sable, West of Dead, and more. Townscaper VR is available now for Meta Quest 2 and PICO platforms for $9.99.
