Timberborn beaver themed indie city-building game official artwork and logo

It's been exactly one year since the Beaver themed city-builder Timberborn launched into Steam Early Access, and in order to celebrate this anniversary the developers have just unleashed a massive update. The star attraction are the new golems - mechanized super-beavers that excel at just about every task you give them, though such performance does come at a cost as you need to both produce them and continue to keep them powered up.

You'll definitely want to have them around as golems are the only workers capable of terraforming terrain. As the name might imply, this handy feature allows you to excavate dirt or put up new land blocks in order to completely reshape the original map to better suit your needs.

Update 2 has also reworked the well-being system to make it clearer to understand and easier to manage, as well as added negative effects to punish you for mistreating your pool little beavers. You can also expect to see batteries, new ways of generating and spending science points, as well as a whole assortment of other improvements, balance fixes and additions.

What all of this looks like in action, that you can get a pretty good impression of through the freshly posted trailer. Have a gander:

If you prefer the written word, however, you can check out the full list of additions and the exact numbers behind each change over at the patch notes. Having fun creating a mechanized beaver utopia!
