At Windows Central, we always try to bring you news about major "AAA" games, smaller experiences that can be considered hidden gems, and downright bizarre titles. Well, today, we have a game that takes the cake. This morning, I received a press release for an experience called "Woodwork Simulator" for PC. Now, you might be wondering what this is. If the name didn't give it away, it's a highly-realistic carpentry simulator.
Players will be able to saw, plane, lathe, chisel, glue, and drill their way through projects and finish them off with a selection of oils and paint, showcasing their work through a built-in photography system. It's no joke. If you can't wait to get your hands on Woodwork Simulator, you'll be excited to know that publisher The Irregular Corporation just released a pre-alpha build here. The pre-alpha build features the ability to follow templated build projects, as well as build whatever you can think of, in "Free Build" mode.
Publishing Director of The Irregular Corporation Stuart Morton said the following about the game.
Are you excited for Woodwork Simulator on PC? Let us know. It's unclear if the game will be treated as a proper simulator, or whether gamers will just fool around in it like Job Simulator. Only time will tell. It's definitely an "out there" project, to say the least.
You can check out the game on Steam right here.

Is this made for VR? Kinda misses the point if not.
Ultra realistic? That tenon saw couldn't cut that far down the material as the spine is thicker than the blade.
