The beautiful Townscaper is now available to try in your browser

House about that.

I spent a few minutes building my own colourful seaside village - it's a simple but intriguing little toy, with a gorgeous style pitched somewhere between Mario Sunshine's Delphino Plaza and Pixar's Luca.

Give it a go! You've got no reason not to.
