Dinkum: Players Can Now Build Guest Houses in Latest Update

Dinkum Steam

Dinkum is a fun building simulation game inspired by the Australian outback where players turn an uninhabitable place into an inviting island.

The House Warming Update for Dinkum was released recently and it brought new stuff that players will enjoy.

Guest Houses
Guest Houses Steam

First, players can now build guest houses. These can be used for different things, such as storage for crops and farming materials, and a good place to stay for those who visit the island. These are buildable once players have upgraded their tents into houses and by visiting Fletch afterwards.

A new wild animal called the Frilly (otherwise known as the Australian Frilled Lizard) has been added in the House Warming Update as well. Inspired by their real-life counterparts, the Frillies are fast and they will not hesitate to fight back when provoked. They can be found roaming the desert biome and if players manage to defeat them, they will receive a Thunder Sac - a new resource that can be used to craft the Bat Zapper.
