Townscaper began life as an experimental project, with developer Oskar Stålberg sharing progress on social media and earning a lot of loyal fans; now it’s beloved as a chilled out building game. We knew it was coming to Switch, and today it’s been confirmed – in IGN’s Gamescom Awesome Indies Show – that it’s out right now on the eShop.
We’ve had a look on the UK and US eShop and it costs just £5.39 / $5.99USD; as you can see in the excellent trailer above it’s a relaxing time. Some of the game’s description is below:
Build quaint island towns with curvy streets. Build small hamlets, soaring cathedrals, canal networks, or sky cities on stilts. Block by block.
No goal. No real gameplay. Just plenty of building and plenty of beauty. That’s it.
This seems like a rather lovely way to relax with the Switch; are you planning to pick it up?
