Toplitz Productions and German game developer Bitfall Studios have announced an April Early Access release date their city builder game, TerraScape. Ahead of the Early Access launch will be a Beta playtest later this March.
Unlike most other city builders, TerraScape challenges players to build their dream city or town with card decks. Each card pack offers different buildings and ways to grow the city. Create scoring opportunities by strategic placement of cards in the game world to earn points and receive new cards.
Each building has different influences such as other buildings, natural resources, or the proper terrain. Buildings can have both positive and negative influences on the overall placement score.
No two maps or playthroughs will be the same. Maps are procedurally generated for the 2.5D game world. During Early Access the current procedural maps and challenges will be further expanded with more card decks, maps, and game modes.
The Early Access version of the game currently features the single player mode and tutorial along with the main pack of cards. Early Access is expected to last twelve months. During this development phase the developer plans to incorporate player feedback in the development process and content additions.
We’re thrilled to be able to share our own take on the city builder genre with TerraScapes relaxed card based mechanic, we’re also looking forward to seeing the endless creative possibilities that the player community will explore during the games beta playtest.Nico Pattmann, Co-Founder and CEO of Bitfall Studios GmbH
