Seed lets you build your own colony using SpatialOS

    
10

Not to be confused with the extremely short-lived 2006 sci-fi title of the same name,  Klang Games’ Seed is an upcoming MMO where players will guide and nurture small colonies of people attempting to settle on a strange world.

While there isn’t much revealed about the game so far, we do know that you will be in charge of multiple characters, more reminiscent of an RTS game with survival mechanics than a straight-up RPG.

Seed utilizes Improbable’s SpatialOS,” the studio said, “which allows Seed to be a persistent, continuously running simulation, with all Seed-Universe game logic running and living on the technology’s powerful server.”

So what is up with all of these development studios flocking to use Improbable’s SpatialOS in their online titles? Check out a recent GDC talk where multiple dev testimonies are given about the platform and its appeal after the break.

Hey, all. I’m Jonathan, Community Manager at Klang, the devs behind Seed.

Super interesting to read your comments; thanks for your interest!

In Seed, the mechanics are similar to RimWorld – setting routines, etc – but you’re also able to “take over” your characters and freely control them during your playing session. Once you leave the game, your colony will go back to their routes while you’re “offline”. But, anything can happen during this offline period.

If you’re interested, it would be great to get you in the Seed mailing list, so we can update ya’ll on the game’s progress. The community is in its super early stages at the moment, but we’ll have it up-and-running in the near future!

Visit: seed-project.io or, email me for more info: jonathan@klang-games.com

Thanks!

SpatialOS is very exciting to me. It seems like it will enable any studio to really push the limits of simulation in terms of scale, physics and intelligent agents. Seems like EQN was heading in the right direction, just didn’t make it to the finish line…

Seems like a simpler Rimworld, which is already a fantastic colony building game. Can’t recommend it enough.

That GDC talk is really cool! Fingers crossed that it will be an exciting couple of years for the MMO space.

It’s still weird to me to see a game about colonies of people attempting to settle a new world with the same name as a defunct game about a colony of people attempting to settle a new world.

I would like a game where I could spend twenty minutes giving my characters instructions or goals then checking in with them hours later to see what happened. As long as they weren’t stupid about it and it isn’t another simple wait for the timers game.

But they are still not saying anything about actual licencing pricing! Only 2 forum posts in Feb. & March! :/

Maybe it’s just me, but the screenshot makes me think of a phone-based farming game.

You might be right since it seems like a check up on your settlement a few times a day sort of game.
