Townsmen VR Gameplay Showcase

Townsmen VR is a virtual city-building strategy game that takes place in a medieval setting. In Townsmen VR, players craft and construct their own towns and settlements across multiple island locations. Players build thriving medieval villages and give their residents a virtual ‘hand’ when needed. Using their hands, players must provide resources for villagers and protect them from hostile invaders at all costs.

“We have been extremely busy polishing, adding, upgrading, and redesigning core elements of our city-building strategy VR game,” said the developers in a recent press release. “We’ve created 12 playable islands for you to build your dream town on. There are numerous story quests to be completed and castles to be conquered!”
