In the upcoming indie game "Tipston Salvage," players will dive into the bustling yet chaotic world of junkyard management.

Created by solo developer Pontus Karlsson, this cooperative game invites 2-4 players to navigate the revived scrap industry of Tipston City.

It's a game that demands coordination, strategy, and a dash of humor as friends come together to operate a series of increasingly challenging and dysfunctional junkyards.

From storing and crushing to shipping processed scrap, the essence of Tipston Salvage lies in its core gameplay loop that encourages players to work in tandem and communicate effectively to succeed.

With a backdrop of the once-forgotten junkyards of Tipston, players are tasked with creating a crew that can handle the demanding and often unpredictable work of scrap management.

Success in Tipston Salvage requires a blend of meticulous planning and the ability to adapt on the fly to the game's knockabout scenarios.

Karlsson, leveraging his extensive experience as a Senior Artist at notable studios such as Hazelight Studios and Starbreeze, has crafted a game that not only tests players' logistical skills but also the strength of their cooperative spirit.

Developed in Unity, Tipston Salvage is Karlsson's latest project under his independent label Barnacles Studio, based in Stockholm, Sweden.

His previous roles have honed his skills in creating engaging environments and detailed artistic designs, which are evident in the detailed and interactive junkyards of Tipston Salvage.

While a release date has yet to be announced, the game is poised to offer a fresh take on the cooperative gaming genre, blending the intricacies of teamwork with the rewarding chaos of running a junkyard enterprise.
