Tasked with re-assembling Sir Reginald Sharkingston’s journal, you must travel far and wide and discover what the world has to offer! Trade merchandise with towns and complete their requests. Fish, mine and farm to complete your collection!
Townseek is a relaxing exploration-trading game where you fly around the world, discovering exotic landmarks and towns. Tasked with reassembling the journal of Sir Reginald Sharkingston bestowed to you by Captain Jawline, you must be on the lookout for its missing pages!
Each town you discover has their own charismatic host and culture! Trade your goods for new items, blimp customizations, tools and more. By fulfilling their requests, you can also improve your relationships with them, increasing your trader rank.
As you continue exploring the world, you can also catch peculiar fish, mine one-of-a-kind artifacts, farm for exotic fruits and dig for treasure! The whole world’s your sea now, so be sure to see all that it has to offer!
The current screenshots in this page are taken off an internal build version that’s ahead of the jam version. Screenshots will be updated as the game develops to match the retail product we’re aiming for.
We’re aiming to release the game sometime in Q2-Q3 2022. We’ll announce a more definite and precise release date as development progresses! We also don’t plan to do Early Access, though we might host demos or betas for feedback.
Townseek was originally created for Global Game Jam 2021 and expanded with a few updates thereafter. After a very heart-warming reception and requests for us to continue exploring the world, we’ve put our focus into making a feature-full version of the game!
The commercial version introduces a larger map with new landmarks and towns, expanded towns with requests and trader ranks, and a main quest featuring the journal of Sir Reginald Sharkingston. It also introduces new side-activities such as farming and digging for treasure, and more ship customization with different hulls and followers!
Alongside Steam, we will also be releasing the game on Itch.io! We’ll be looking into researching more options for storefronts as development progresses.
Pricing is still subject to change, but we’re targeting $9.99 with a launch discount and appropriate regional pricing.
We’re looking into making it possible! However, since we don’t have the setups to properly quality assure those platforms just yet so we’d prefer to confirm them at a later date!
We’re looking into making it a reality! No official announcement just yet though. 😉
At this time, we don’t have any plans to port it to other consoles or mobile.
Yes! We’re working to make the game fully controller compatible!

Let us know about it! Please understand that giving suggestions doesn’t mean we’ll have them implemented in the game. If you’d like, you can directly suggest them to us through the #townseek-suggestions channel in our Whales And Games Discord Server!
