What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Willowbrooke Post is a game built from the ground up with Early Access in mind. The game strikes a balance between management gameplay that will be influenced by players, as well as character-based elements – releasing in Early Access allows us to alter our approach to characters based on community feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game is envisioned to be in Early Access for about a year, though this is an estimate only.”

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

“Willowbrooke Post will be updated throughout Early Access with further features focused upon the running of the community post office. With the groundwork for Willowbrooke Post’s narrative having been laid by the Early Access release, the full version will contain an expanded narrative and further characters.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access release of Willowbrooke Post offers a comprehensive post office management experience, while introducing a cast of memorable and varied characters and laying the groundwork for an intriguing and engaging narrative.”

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

“The game’s price will increase throughout Early Access and/or at full launch. We will let you know about any price increases before they happen.”

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

“We will be looking for suggestions and feedback frequently throughout Early Access development, and will be very active across the Steam forums, social media and Discord.”

About This Game




Your parents leave unexpectedly, entrusting you with their beloved post office. With only a handful of coins and guidance from a family friend, you’ll need to manage finances, serve the community and protect the family reputation, until they return.

The post office is a social hub for the village, and you’ll become a key part of the colourful community – one where each action could impact your relationship with the residents.




Take on numerous tasks in the day to day running of the post office, including sorting packages for delivery, parcel wrapping, stamping letters, typing out emails, writing letters, and managing your ledger.

Other activities around the house include checking in with community members on the phone as well as following a multitude of cooking recipes, to bake villagers delicious treats.




As well as the day to day post office customers, you’ll also get to know a handful of familiar faces from Willowbrooke. These quirky characters include the gregarious Magnifique and your steadfast family friend Pete.

Your actions, both in terms of how you interact with the residents of Willowbrooke, and how you decide to run the post office, will impact your relationship with each character. Deliver Magnifique’s camera as expected and they’ll be delighted. Take it for yourself instead, and you’ll witness a glimpse of Magnifique’s darker side.

Learn more about the residents of Willowbrooke through the types of parcels they send, the letters they write, and how they react to your actions.
