Do you remember Bob the Builder and Sim City? Ever wanted to be Bob to build and manage your own city? Well I’ve got some awesome news for you.

Developer TouchTilt brings you Buildanauts, a game in which you construct, manage and design your own city. You are the Mayor, city planner and builder at the same time and you can build your city from the ground up!

Developer TouchTilt already has plans to bring the game to PS4, WIIU, Linux, Mac, Windows and Xbox One in Q2 2015, but they launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise some funds to finish the game.

Here’s what you can expect.

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!
 

EXPLORE YOUR OWN OPEN WORLD:

MANAGE YOUR OWN LIVING TOWN:
