Townscaper is a tool to build cities consisting of colorful buildings, where we choose the color palette and the algorithms hidden in the game create complicated connections between one building and another. Oskar Stalberg, an independent artist, is responsible for the game.


The game has no plot or specific purpose. It is up to us to decide what idea we want and how we want our fictional model town to look like.

We place buildings on an irregular grid, previously selecting several colours from the colour palette. Thanks to this, our buildings will have consistent colors. Among them we can find single and multi-storey houses, churches and cathedrals, viaducts and aqueducts, as well as giant skyscrapers. It all depends on how we steer the mouse and how many times we click, and then we can observe the unique algorithm in action, which creates interesting compositions.

Each town can be rich in additional details such as roads, bridges, enclosed plant areas and lawns, but also in barriers and poles for erecting buildings on water areas.

Technical aspects

Townscaper is not so much a game as a recreational tool with unique mechanics, thanks to which we can admire fictional cities and towns consisting of charming cottages.
