Codex Gamicus

Townscaper is a casual building sandbox game developed and published by Oskar Stålberg. It was released on Steam on June 30, 2020. The premise of this game is to casually build all sorts of buildings and streets on different island towns. There is no real goal or any real gameplay. The player can build, block by block, small hamlets, soaring cathedrals, canal networks, or sky cities on stilts. The player can also pick colors from the palette, plop down colored blocks of house on the irregular grid, and then these blocks turn into houses, arches, stairways, bridges and lush backyards, depending on their configuration.
