Flush with an indie-publishing pedigree that’d turn any company green with envy, Headup is a much-beloved and well-respected hybrid studio based in Germany. Both a publisher and a developer, Headup has had its hands in everything from Dead Cells to Terraria. Now Headup has its capable grip firmly around a new project: Tinkertown, a multiplayer sandbox being created wholly in-house. Tinkertown is described with the following:
“Gather your friends and come to Tinkertown – A refreshing new Multiplayer Sandbox Experience! A magical place awaits where only your fantasy sets the limits of creation.”
The new title was announced on June 5 by both the Headup Twitter account and the Tinkertown Twitter account. The world of Tinkertown is home to procedurally generated realms with resource-packed surfaces and danger-packed dungeons. You can play online with up to three friends or go it alone–come fall, methinks we’ll all be doing the former. Bosses, building, classes, crafting…you name it, the adorable and intrepid Tinkertown promises it. Tinkertown is slated for a PC release this autumn.
