Timberborn is a city-building game about lumberpunk beavers. These evolved, bipedal animals build vertical wooden settlements, control rivers with dams and dynamite, and create thriving colonies despite the catastrophic droughts and other perils.

The game is now available in closed beta on PC and Mac and will launch in Steam Early Access in Q1 2021.
