Headup announces sandbox multiplayer RPG Tinkertown

Ahead of Gamescom, Headup has announced Tinkertown, a 'sandbox multiplayer RPG' which is the first title developed internally for the indie publisher. The game is set to launch via Steam Early Access this Fall, and a public demo will be available later today.

Tinkertown is a multiplayer RPG featuring a pixel-art style and a procedurally generated open world. The game can be played alone or with up to three friends online in drop-in-drop-out multiplayer. The game world is dotted with dungeons that offer a multitude of loot, which can then be crafted into tools, armor, weapons, furniture, and more. Tinkertown also features various roles your character can exhibit, and by changing your gear you can change your combat style.
