Timberborn Demo

Steam now offers a playable demo for Timberborn, allowing Windows and macOS gamers to sample this upcoming post-apocalyptic city-building game between now and February 16th. Here's what developer Mechanistry says about the demo: "Try the free demo of Timberborn! And, whether your beavers survive or die in a desert, share your feedback on our Discord server! Please note that the demo is only available in English. For Early Access launch, Timberborn will be available in all 11 languages listed on the Steam page." Here's an overview of what they call a lumberpunk game:
Mankind turned Earth into a dry wasteland and perished, but some species adapted and evolved. Choose one of the unique beaver factions and see how long your colony can last!

Wet and dry seasons
Prepare your settlement for recurring droughts. Stockpile on food and keep fields and forests alive even after rivers dry up. Rely on both natural water sources and artificial irrigation to keep the land arable.

River control
Redirect rivers, put up dams and dig water canals with explosives – beavers of the future have millennia of experience in water engineering. But be careful, uncontrolled flooding is as deadly as a dynamite blast!

So I downloaded the demo...and promptly killed off my first beaver colony because there are no tooltips or suggestions.

It's a lot like Banished...but with beavers. Lots of labor and resource management. If that's your thing, you will enjoy it.

Edit to add:

To survive:

1. Set a large foresting area so you can hover up wood.
2. Immediately build a farmhouse and plant a shitload of carrots.
3. Build a water pump.
4. Build two small water towers.
5. Do everything else.
Remember, your beave is a social critter and can die from isolation stress.

I just hope I'm never banished from the beaver.

I initially read that as "Tinderborn," and thought "that's not even possible."

Wicked! Beaver building colony. That's exactly what beavers would do if they could.
