What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Dinkum is a game I’ve been working on for more than 3 years. While I believe the game is very playable, there are a few additional features I would like to add for the game to feel “complete”. With the game in Early Access, I can continue development on Dinkum while involving the community, their suggestions and feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“For at least one year, but ultimately I will continue the development of Dinkum until I feel like the game and its content are at a quality I consider completed.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“I plan on increasing the number of Villagers you can attract to your island as well as expand on their relationships and backstories.

I would also expand on other areas of the game such as seasonal activities, hunting, trapping, diving, farming and photography.

Additionally, throughout Early Access I intend to continue adding new bugs, fish, crops, clothing, decorations and furniture to make your island feel even more like home.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of Dinkum contains a solid experience with a lot of content. Players can enjoy crafting, fishing, bug catching, mining, metal detecting, farming crops, raising farm animals, planting orchards, hunting, driving vehicles, buying new clothes, upgrading and decorating their homes. As well as making friends with and convincing 9 unique villagers with their own business to come and live on their island.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Dinkum will be offered at a lower price while it’s in Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I will be involving the community through Dinkum’s Discord server where players are welcome to leave their feedback and suggestions for new features or for balancing changes. Any update or patch will be fully transparent and include patch notes.”

About This Game

G’Day there! Get ready to start a new fair Dinkum life and build a home on an Island inspired by the wild Australian outback. Explore tropical eucalyptus forests, survive scorching deserts, relax at cool billabongs and discover scrubland filled with adorable Aussie inspired wildlife. Collect valuable resources by hunting, mining, fishing and foraging to expand and customise your town and attract new townsfolk and businesses. Share your new home with friends and protect each other as you explore beautiful landscapes filled with dangerous predators.

Go from starting out sleeping in a swag under the stars, to a sprawling town with farms, businesses and attractions. Eventually, you’ll draw in visitors, who might decide to stay and make it their home too.

Keep your neighbours happy by customising your town with fences, flower beds, street lamps, beehives, windmills, hedges, fountains and more. The happier your townsfolk are the more likely they are to settle down, bring their families and set up stores with unique items.

Invite your friends to visit your town where they can help you construct buildings, shop at your stores, go fishing, race Emus, fight crocodiles much more!

The island is Choc-A-Bloc with insects, fish and minerals. So grab your thongs and go track down and collect them all for your personal museum collection, or sell them for a tidy profit!

Care for and breed chickens, cows and sheep as well as Dinkum’s iconic Giant Wombats! The Wombats might seem intimidating at first, but really they are sweethearts.

Cultivate crops for your town across the whole island, choosing the best spots for each type. Not only do the seasons change, but the temperature shifts depending on where you are on the island

Hunt animals for food and defend yourself from deadly predators who are just as hungry as you. Those Roos might seem friendly but they pack a punch!

Attack creatures head on or capture them with traps, it’s up to you how to survive.

Customise your character in Dinkum to be the True Blue version of you. Buy that shiny pair of sunnies or wide Akubra hat in the shop, or seek out rare items through exploring the great outdoors and through chinwags with fellow townsfolk.

Make your house your own cosy abode. Craft a huge range of furniture and decorations, choose where everything goes and invite friends over to show off your interior designer creds.
