MinskWorks and Yogscast Games today announced Landlord’s Super will launch 30 April on Steam Early Access. Your quintessential construction simulator is here. Take a dodgy loan, restore a property, move in the locals, attend to their grievances, then celebrate with a pint in this fully-simulated, open-world 1980’s Britain.
Landlord’s Super is a first-person construction simulation set in Britain’s murky midlands during the polarizing years of the 1980s. With the mines closed and unemployment sky-high, it’s down to players to build their way out of poverty with hammer and spanner in hand.
Mix cement, assemble scaffolding, order supplies and rebuild a community’s hope brick-by-brick. Take odd jobs and explore abandoned homes or spend the day at the pub alongside a cast of local personalities and dodgy characters. Plan your actions in a living world around the time of day, major events, seasonal weather and your own wellbeing. Some days it’s better to drink the day away than climb a scaffold in the rain.
“Landlord’s Super is about a Britain that’s dear to me,” says MinskWorks’ founder Greg Pryjmachuk. “It’s a Britain that’s not just tweed and jokes about being posh; it’s a Britain that’s more diverse and more working class. I hope players enjoy this early visit West Berklands and I hope you’ll stick with us as the game grows over the coming months.”
Landlord’s Super launches for Steam Early Access on 30 April 2020 for £15.49 ($19.99, €16.79) offering an early look at the in-development game. Landlord’s Super already features a dynamic open world, construction and crafting gameplay, job center, rag-and-bone man, seasons and dynamic weather, boozing and bodily functions, and The Anchor pub. Bugs, features and optimization continue to be worked on.
