In BUILDANAUTS, you’re the foreman, the city planner, and the mayor of the town of your dreams. Plan your town, then bring it to life with the help of your construction crew. Build a town that your townsfolk, the Buildanites, will be proud to call home!

Key Features:

EXPLORE

Survey a vast open landscape just waiting for your construction crew. Jump in an excavator and dig the terrain, or run around with a shovel looking for resources.

DESIGN

Shape your structures by choosing paint colors, textures, details, and building material. Then, assign tasks to your skilled construction workers and watch them turn your vision into a reality!

BUILD

Build your town from the ground up just the way you want it! Use a fleet of heavy vehicles and a variety of construction tools to place city props, lay down roads, and much, much more.

MANAGE

Keep your resident Buildanites happy! Attract more townsfolk by keeping your town in top shape, but be careful: too much neglect and your Buildanites will move out!

The characters look a huge lot like Bob the Builder in my opinion, I'm not sure how to feel about that, but judging from the screenshots etc. the game looks immensely fun! The graphics are also good nonetheless, and I'd love to play this game once it's released! I upvoted it nonetheless on Greenlight!

Thanks for the feedback!
We do hear that quite a bit lately. I found if you look at stock 'Construction Worker' images on a Google search, most of them if turned into a cartoonish look would resemble that as well. I think it's just trying to do a generic construction worker look that does that.
But since we'll allow players to fully customize their look in game (clothes, accessories, skin, faces, etc) I don't think it's too bad. It just happens our default style has a few similarities (I blame the eyes and yellow helmet - but you'll be able to change these when you create your character in game).

I can see what you're saying, we were just trying to keep them simple - but with that said you will be able to customize your character's looks: eyes, mouth, hair, helmet colour, skin tone, gender and outfit. You can kinda see that under 'Customize your character" on our KS page 2/3 of the way down Kickstarter.com

Thanks for the compliment, support and feedback!

Cheers.

Would it be possible to construct railways?
Also, what are the limits on the map size, if any?

We were actually thinking of railways the other day, but if we were to do that it'd be a DLC down the 'road' so to speak ;)

No restriction on the map size, it's infinite so you can build anywhere based on the terrain layout you like. Or you can terraform it in a number of ways, too if it doesn't exactly suit your plans. We also like the idea of you just exploring and performing jobs to earn more money, like cutting down trees, digging for gold or...earning merit and money for helping out wild animals :)

Actually, would making an underground town be possible aswell?
Perhaps a DLC that makes this into a Mining Contractor game?

Hey, I'm the programmer for Buildanauts and thought I'd answer this question.

It would definitely be possible to build in this way.

I haven't put limits to the terrain height as of yet, but I've thought about doing so somewhat (possibly following the Minecraft method of 0 to 255 for performance reasons - but limits will come during testing... if necessary). So a winding vertical town up the face of a mountain would definitely be possible (or floating islands connected by roads and sidewalks - Columbia from Bioshock Infinite comes to mind here).

I'm trying to keep as much freedom in the game as possible to allow you to build whatever you'd like with very little restrictions.

There was talk of certain DLC's of this sort. My favorite idea so far was to allow you to construct a museum and then do archaeology digs for artifacts and dinosaurs to populate it with.
