Happy Holidays from Sheffingham (Artwork by @midmodmar)


Month 8 of Landlord’s Super Early Access.
Happy holidays and a happy new year!
We’re back from our winter break, and while it was quieter than usual in the MinskWorks HQ, we’re pleased to report that we’re well rested and ready to deliver you some more development updates. As the current public roadmap for Landlord’s Super is now complete, this month we take a look at what’s coming next in your quintessential construction sim. Landlord’s Super was also covered in PC Gamer recently, and a certain vehicle was found popping up in voxel-based destruction game Teardown.

An early look at the new furniture coming in the next update.

Furniture Work

We’ve got a few more days work left on a general bug fix patch. Once that’s out of production will be in full swing on our next major update; the Furniture Update.
The Furniture update will provide players with a bunch more furniture pieces to play with. These furniture pieces will come in a variety of colours & styles and can be ordered from a selection of new catalogues we’ll be introducing. These catalogues will be unlockable through helping the residents of Sheffingham. Repair Tamsin’s wall for example, and you’ll be rewarded with a new furniture catalogue – finally giving purpose to this action. 
We’re also looking into furniture damage. It’s currently planned that tenants will be able to damage furniture (wear & tear) so players will need to be responsible for replacing it if. 
We’ve only just begun work on this update, so expect another couple of months before it enters the InDev branch for testing. 

New Roadmap

Now that last years roadmap has been completed, we’ve put together a new one to show where our focus is for this year. As always, keep in mind that game development is an iterative process, and the roadmap is always subject to change.

New year, new roadmap!

How Minskworks snuck a snapshot of real England onto Steam

Jeremy Peel wrote a great piece over on PCGamer which covers how the themes of Landlord’s Super tie into 1980’s England. It features an interview with Greg, you can read it here.
