TerraScape: FOUNDATION Update For City Builder / Puzzle Mix Now Live
Latest update adds new content including action cards and new merged buildings
Oberhaching, Germany, May 12th, 2023 – Independent German developer Bitfall Studios in partnership with publisher Toplitz Productions announced today’s release of the FOUNDATION update for sandbox city builder / puzzle game TerraScape.
The update adds new content which finalizes the Foundation update for the game’s current milestone and incorporates four new merged buildings in the form of Mining Enclave, Fish Farm, Vineyard and Forest Settlement. In addition to that, Bitfall Studios has also introduced new Action Cards, a type of card that has a specific effect or action associated with it. In TerraScape, players can earn various new and unique Action Cards with special strategic values, like generating new resources.
Also rounding off the FOUNDATION update are map overlays, which allow players to see their world’s surface and building locations clearly. The overlays can also help the player find valuable resources and open tiles in their growing kingdom.
“The FOUNDATION update for TerraScape gives players more ways to maximize their score and the new merged buildings also provide a strategic scoring opportunity,as well as adding to the visual aesthetic of the game” said Nico Pattmann, Co-Founder and CEO of Bitfall Studios GmbH.
Further feature expansions are planned, with new maps, challenges, modes and buildings that Bitfall Studios will integrate during early access later this year, as detailed in its product roadmap. The next major feature update will be the Meta Update which introduces Co-operative Multiplayer and even more decks.
