The developers have stated that the game will remain in this state for at least a year while they gather feedback from players, and continue to update the game. The game runs great for the most part and isn’t that demanding either, but it does lack some options. If you want to play Timberborn in borderless windowed mode, here is how you can do that.

Steam users are very happy with the title, and it has Overwhelmingly Positive reviews, despite being an early access title. It also had a peak player count of over 12K concurrent players, which is pretty impressive.
