Seed offers fans a brief look at pre-alpha footage

You could argue that a pre-alpha is itself a seed that will eventually grow into a full, playable game. It’d be a bit of a tortured metaphor, but it would also mean that you could make the argument that the two minutes of pre-alpha footage available for Seed below represent a seed of Seed. And isn’t it all worth as many tortured metaphors as it takes to make a lame joke?

Probably not. In fact, it’s probably more productive to just watch the footage and think a little bit about what you’re seeing on the screen. You get to see the early version of building structures, plotting gardens, and developing a campsite from a small gathering into a larger group, so all of that is pretty indicative of the final game Seed wants to be. We’ll see how it blossoms over the coming months.

This looks like the kind of game I could enjoy playing alone, offline, for hours on end.

Wasn’t there a futuristic MMO called Seed some years back? I remember playing it and marveling at how broken it was.

More on topic, color me intrigued. I like the aesthetic, and the music if the trailer is indicative of what’s in the game. Though, I imagine it will be some time before I start actively checking on Seed. Following pre-alpha/alpha games isn’t something I enjoy very much.

Yes there was. A non-combat MMO. You were supposed to be able to talk to NPC’s in chat just like other players. I remember it being forced to go live, just to try and get more funds to continue development. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seed_(video_game)

They should have held off a bit from releasing that.
