Proven Lands, a sci-fi sandbox game in development at Berlin-based studio thesetales, has landed on Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight.
The game will contain “real mysteries of physics, biology and chemistry, and science-fiction influenced by Star Trek, Don’t Starve, Project Zomboid and Starbound.
You can try out a pre-alpha tech demo, but note before you do that it is more of a proof-of-concept.
Players will need to compile resources, kill enemies, explore a procedural terrain with over 30 different types of biomes yet – all the while trying to stave off hunger, thirst and diseases.
If you want to know more about it, there’s a rather comprehensive list of key concepts and game mechanics posted on the Kickstarter page. There’s a couple videos and some audios clips posted as well, along with quite a bit of concept art.
Currently, Proven Lands is slated for a spring 2015 release on PC, after which iOS and OSX versions are planned. Once those are out the door, the team plans to release Android and Linux versions.
