For the unaware, Townscaper allows players to build and grow a colourful city simply by clicking, without time limits or quests.

The game is already available across PC and Mac (via Steam), Nintendo Switch and on mobile.

A free demo is also available to play in your web browser.

Donlan was impressed with the game when it released in 2021. "This is an art toy to savour, and a time-waster of great power," he wrote in his Recommended review.
