After almost 1 year of Early Access and 7 years of development, Seeds of Resilience is out now. It's a 2D turn based survival management game where you have to make a new village from scratch.
A Story Made In Brittany
The game has a special story, it was born in a time where the environment was still a forgotten issue, 7 years ago. It was the kind of time where growth was the only thing people were interested in.
The team is made of Antonin Deudon & Alexandre. During the development of the game, they were also involved in environmental activities. They made survivalist trips together, where they learned to live in harmony with nature.
The graphic artist, Alexandre, has a main business which is making durable, wooden insulative material for the construction industry. He invented and built a whole machine by himself to make those materials.
Antonin, on his side, has started to make an eco-village. It's a village made of around 20 people who is fully built on having a resilient, plastic-free, auto-sufficient way of living. His family of 4 will be moving here in the upcoming months, it even has an internet connection!
Nowadays, many game developers are concerned with the environment and wondering : are video games worth it for the planet? I hope we can see that like Antonin and Alexandre, it doesn't have to be exclusive with other pro-nature activities people are making on the side.
A game inspired by real-life building skillset
In Seeds of Resilience, your villagers will build life-like structures that can, or cannot, stand the test of time. Those buildings are inspired by real life medieval techniques.
Another example inspired by nature: if you're overfishing around the island, there will be no more fishes. No fishes, no reproduction! The player has to be aware of the environment or they will starve. Same thing for agriculture, it has to be made in a reasonable way. If you always gather the fruits but never leave time for things to grow, it won't be good in the long term.
Seeds of Resilience is now out with a 20% discount and a 1.0 Release.
