The creators of Proven Lands have been working on their dream game with a small indie team for some months now. A free pre-alpha tech #demo (Windows 32 & 64 bit) has been #released for their Kickstarter campaign.
Starting with a backdrop of endless, procedurally generated terrain, Proven Lands combines 3D, science fiction, survival, sandbox, rogue-like and RPG elements with an AI game master, and modding. The player is an explorer – not just another sandbox item collector. He eats, drinks, chops trees, destroys stones and kills enemies.
“I believe that people have been waiting for such a science-fiction game for years. In the future, when procedural 3D games become common, the players will probably have a better understanding of the game mechanics, the level design advantages and the technical challenges of such a game,” Rafael Wawer said.
Proven Lands is expected to be released in Q2 2015 – first on Windows, then on iOS and OS X, followed by Android and Linux, thanks to Unity. A Kickstarter campaign for Proven Land has just been launched.
Pascal Blanche, Art Director at Ubisoft, Montreal, about Proven Lands: “Someone finally gets the potential of procedural alien worlds.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun about Proven Lands: “The catchiest way to describe it would be ‘sci-fi Don’t Starve,’ but that’s far, far, far too simplistic.”
