Life is Feudal: Forest Village

Timberborn is an indie game focusing on expanding the city, proper management of space and supplies, especially during natural disasters, and taking care of the needs and satisfaction of the inhabitants. The game was both developed and published by the Mechanistry studio.


Mankind is extinct and the beavers are now the only ones left in the world. Now they have the opportunity to see if they can do better than the human race and if the wooden metropolis they have created will stand the test of time.


Timberborn is a city builder with survival elements, in which the settlement created by us must be prepared for harsh weather conditions and various natural disasters, such as droughts, rainy seasons and floods. For this purpose, apart from creating numerous wooden buildings for living and diversifying the life of the town's inhabitants, we have to take care of food supplies, but also a well-functioning water irrigation system. This means that we need to not only interfere with river beds, create dams, but also dig canals with the use of explosives. However, the space on which we can expand is limited, so apart from the possibility of constructing multi-storey buildings, we need to plan well how we want to expand our settlement in order to create efficient production chains.

And as we manage the beaver colony, the main component of our buildings is wood. Thanks to it we'll build houses, water mills, workshops, monuments, temples and carousels. However, metal will also be necessary in more complex constructions. Alongside this, we have the ability to create fields of crops for the beavers to harvest and turn into the food they need to survive and create reserves of it for a rainy day, as well as taking care of the lighting and even powering these more complex structures.

All this is thanks to the hard work of the beavers, who are eager to get to work if the conditions are right. But they also need to rest from time to time, which is why we need to be mindful of their wellbeing, because a well-rested and happy worker is a good worker. Building appropriate structures, such as carousels and numerous decorations, and providing them with a balanced diet will help with this.

Apart from a few ready-made maps created by the developers, which differ in the layout of the terrain, and thus in the difficulty of colonising it, Timberborn also has an editor, thanks to which we can create such a map and share it with the game community, or take up the challenge on a map created by another player.
