When you think about it, combining board games with MMORPGs isn’t the worst idea in the world. Graphical MUDs and games like Stash have brought this kind of experience to players for years now, but it may be that World Seed represents the next level of board game MMOs.
“World Seed is heavily inspired by classic tabletop board games,” the developer explained. “The core gameplay lets you move around on a world-board, clearing out tile after tile, either for crafting materials, epic battles with creatures, or just to simply explore the world.
