About Seeds of Resilience

Seeds of Resilience is a survivalist management game where you lead a group of survivors, stranded on an island. The survivors have to build a new colony from the grounds up using real life skills.

The core feature of Seeds of Resilience is authenticity! It is built on real life experience with knowledge of carpentry, architecture and ecology. For instance, there are different kinds of trees (fir, chestnut, oak) with different properties that will affect buildings. While other games aim for epicness, SoR wants to be closer to reality. “Make a great deal with little means”.

Humans of the game will also have to observe nature behaviour and patiently learn skills. People didn’t came up with architecture in one day! Seeds of Resilience is designed as the journey of a new, ambitious colony.

The team publishes a bi-weekly blog post on their website to show the accuracy of the game.

SoR releases on Steam Early Access on 4th July. The game will be updated with new buildings, features and natural disasters. The two-man team developers also intend to bring a light campaign mode and an endless survival mode.

  • Patiently go through the steps of re-creating a civilization: Start with a stone axe and a shelter made out of branches to finally build elaborate houses and mechanized workshops.
  • Survive in a harsh environment where storms and other natural disasters occur way too often.
  • Primary resource is the work time of the survivors. Carefully manage their actions and optimize their skill progression.
  • Turn based: Take all the time you need to plan your actions. When you’re done, click the end turn button and start a new day.
  • Take care of your villagers: The better they are fed and housed, the more they can work each day.
  • Detailed building construction: Choose natural resources according to their properties. Use them to craft the materials needed to assemble a building.
  • Realistic medieval construction and craft techniques. Everything could be made in real life the same way.
  • Observe the environment response to human activity. You should probably avoid fishing everyday at the same spot or cut down the whole forest.
