Townsmen VR uses the exciting possibilities of virtual reality to further enhance the classic city-building genre through an entirely new gameplay experience and interactive mechanics. The game combines elements of a God-game simulation and a classic building game with the interactive possibilities of VR controls. Whether from a bird's eye view or zoomed-in close, you will always experience the action from the proper perspective.

Start with a small settlement and expand over a world of 13 islands and archipelagos. Filled to the brim with exciting features, and gizmos to lay your virtual hands on. Build more than 20 unique buildings and upgrade them. Immerse yourself in a thrilling story with many exciting quests, or play without restrictions in the sandbox mode with goals set by you. Hours of fun are guaranteed!

As the your population grows, so does the demand for food and goods. Production chains help you meet this need. Build farms, grind the grain harvested there at the mill, and bake delicious bread for your Townies. Your mill won't operate without a breeze winds? Give the mechanism a push. Slap lazy workers with a fish, or help your citizens collect about 20 different raw materials. See the world you helped create from the view of a townsman. Shrink yourself to experience your town at eye level with your townies.

Farm animals such as cows, sheep, and chickens provide you with essential resources to produce food. Your hunters will find game to stalk but should beware of wild animals.

In time you should begin to hire soldiers to defend against intruders and sinister pirates! On top of that you can use heavy artillery: A catapult can punch devastating gaps in the enemies' ranks! And should you run out of boulders, remember: everything you can lay your hands on can be used as ammo!

Intuitive control of the environment helps you move about – you can literally crawl over the island or change your viewpoint like you would zoom on a smartphone. You'll get accustomed to ruling your empire very fast.

The islands you visit during the campaign can be unlocked for the sandbox mode. You'll be able to choose whether you want to play entirely without constraints or accept challenges of your choice. Determine the number of townies you start the game with, defeat opponents or fight against thieving pirates – the various settings offer you enough freedom for your personal gaming experience!
