City building games often go wrong on one of the two sides. They are brutal and relentless, like Frostpunk, or require intense thinking and planning like Cities: Skylines. It is unclear which of those Timberborn it lands, but it is certainly a change from the usual. The game tasks players with advancing beaver society by building massive cities instead of dams. And for a limited time, Steam users can try Timberborn thanks to a free demo.

At first sight, Timberborn is a city builder like any other. Players create paths for citizens to walk, set up farms and storage areas. There are even large residences, reservoirs, and water pumps. Then it became clear that the citizens of this city are genetically altered beavers. They managed to survive the apocalypse and are rebuilding the world as they see fit. A new trailer for the game shows the life of one of those cities. It goes from a desolate and burned wasteland to a green field, dotted with large wooden houses and other buildings. The terrain is even altered with explosives to create small rivers. It should come as no surprise that beavers are industrious city builders.

However, not everything is perfect in this post-apocalypse. Players will have to manage the city and make sure all beavers are well cared for. Like many other city building games, hunger and thirst play a key role in keeping the population happy.
