We’ve had the chance to flip houses, turning them into homes, and we’ve even taken in the power of Unreal Engine 5 and the glorious Dreamhouse concept. For now though we’re going to have to be content with traveling the globe as a full-on House Builder.
From building igloos in the Arctic, to log cabins in Siberia and mud huts in Africa, House Builder from PlayWay will take us on a trip around the globe, visiting multiple locales before being tasked with building homes. Whether those homes will quite be those of our dreams, is another matter.
Priced up at £12.49 and available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, House Builder comes with a simple concept – build some houses. Job done.
The thing is, different areas of this Earth require different techniques and whilst you may find that slapping down some mud bricks in Africa will suffice, creating an uber-modern, energy-efficient home elsewhere will be more of a task. House Builder should well walk us through all options neatly, as we get to learn a variety of construction techniques and how various materials work within the land.
We’ll have the chance to make the most of multiple tools as well, helping improve our skills for when those house building moments really call for it. This may be no Grand Designs – The Game, but it might well be as close to it as we’re going to get for a while.
But of course, in the virtual world anything goes, so make a mistake or change your mind and demolishing anything and everything is a cinch.
Key game features include:
- Build all over the world – Learn more about the architectural style of the region and let your imagination run wild!
- Learn new technologies – With every building your skill improves and new technologies will expedite your work.
- Demolish! – Some of the houses must be cleaned up and rebuilt from scratches. Go back in time – Travel across many periods in history and try to build all iconic designs
- Diverse climate – scorching and freezing temperatures can be a challenge to sustain. Be aware of dangerous fauna.
We’re quite looking forward to getting hands-on with House Builder on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, if only as we’re intrigued by the different building methods promised. We’ll be sure to run the rule in full review.
For now, you can become a proper House Builder for yourself by visiting the Xbox Store.
