Need some time off on an island?

The end is nigh! HandyGames releases critically acclaimed VR village builder and god game Townsmen VR into the wild.

Giebelstadt, Germany, March 24th, 2022
It's been a long way getting here, but it was definitely worth the wait. After the last major update that included more maps, more buildings and more of basically everything we upped the ante and fell into a dash short before the finishing line.
​Now with the final update and release, Townsmen VR even got a sandbox mode and is better than ever. A unique one-of-a-kind VR game that lets you control the fate of your settlers. Build, crawl, explore, pet, pick, throw and fight - it's time to get your hands dirty.
