Novus Inceptio

Post-apocalyptic sci-fantasy MMO Novus Inceptio is now on Steam Greenlight. The indie title aims to diverge from current MMO norms and create an “integrated living world” featuring “hardcore suvival action, tactics, and strategy.”

The Greenlight description mentions character aging and permadeath, attributes that increase with use and decrease with neglect, and effects such as illnesses, injuries, and exhaustion. All of Novus Inceptio’s items are made by players, and the Steam description devotes quite a bit of verbiage to things like exploration, building, and freeform character advancement. Early access is planned for Q4 of 2015.

You can view the latest sample gameplay video below.

So a three minute video of a guy picking apples and eating food.
Yeah, this is a game for the dedicated few.

Nice graphics for this type of game. Great sounds too.

Seriously though… how many games do you need to have where you live in a forest without anyone (or very few) other people around, cutting down trees and building cabins?

Answer: Apparently a lot.

I keep waiting for one of these survival sandboxes to do something hugely different than whats already been done and out and played over and over in previous games.

This genre seriously needs its “Half Life” game to come out.

I’m loving the recent explosion in (non-zombie) survival games announced.

I like survival sandbox games but very few seem to ever get past the talking phase. So if this one actually ever manages to do it and get past the early access+ a boat load of promises they never keep I’m interested. If not…I’ll probably never think about the game again.

Another janky cheap “survival sandbox” indie game…

Armsbend Postapo and sci-fi is not always just about the destruction of the world or laser weapons;)

NI is set in the very distant future, when the world has been put together from the disaster that struck the world. Therefore, it is everywhere dense, wild and lively nature. But here and there are discernible signs of the event + also serves as the basis of the background lore and finding new technology. Etc.

That looked more like TES rather than post apocalyptic, sci-fi.
