Timberborn on Steam

Humans have long gone extinct, and you now lead a society of lumberpunk beavers. Will your civilization do any better? Play as one of three races with distinct features that greatly influence your experience and see how long your civilization can last for.

Technology and science are the foundation of every civilization. Use ingenious timber-tech for the good of your society. Every building and structure is made entirely out of wood, which is the main resource in Timberborn.

Construct the beaver settlement of your dreams using the modular, multi-tier architecture system.

Build a prosperous city with efficient production chains and beaverish nighttime activities. Follow the lives of individually simulated inhabitants throughout their day.

Satisfy the needs of your population to unlock bonuses and new races.

Play one of the included maps or create your own and share it with the community! Los Beaveros anyone?

Unique beaver societies

Common Beavers lead a healthy, balanced lifestyle and are great for your first playthrough. Eager Beavers require very little sleep but consume more food. They are good for a more challenging experience. Last but not least are the Fancy Beavers who basically like pretty things. Refuse to decorate your settlement and they’ll die of depression. Oh, yeah… they also breed like rabbits.

And we regularly add new features! Stay in the loop by adding joining our Discord!

Timberborn Closed Beta has officially started! The first batch of beta keys is being sent out now so check your Discord inboxes. The number of keys is limited but if you don't receive one today, don't fret, we will be sending them in rounds over the coming weeks. And, if you haven't already done so, you can still sign up for the beta here.

Our goal for the beta is to hear your honest feedback about the game in its new incarnation. Timberborn is still far from the complete experience we have in mind but we strive to make Timberborn the greatest beaver builder of all time. And that is only possible with your help, so please join the discussion on Discord and on the forums. Discord is also the best place to find the latest streams and videos.

What has changed

Almost every aspect of the game has been redesigned since the alpha. The game looks and plays differently.


Most of the graphics including the terrain and all buildings have been redone in some way. Our focus was exploring the best art style for the new architecture system. Let us know what you think!

Vertical building

Buildings can now be stacked atop each other or built on the water. Homes and warehouses in particular can form multi-storey complexes.

Map editor

You can create custom maps using the built-in editor. The game also features three totally new maps. Also, the maximum terrain height has been increased to 16 - check out the Canyon map for a glimpse of the possibilities that it brings.


This consisted of tens of smaller changes but the biggest one by far is the new path finding algorithm which fixes a lot of the old pathing bugs and improves performance. More optimizations will come in future updates.

And more...

  • ...you can find the complete list here.
