Discover Kynseed – a retro life simulation from former Fable developers
Experience a simulation of a very special kind. In Kynseed you’ll grow up, start a family, run businesses, and build a fruitful economy. What makes this game special is that all the game characters also age and die over time. When you die as a player, you take control of your children and continue to run your businesses and farms with honor. Build your dream life and create your favorite place to return to and take a rest again and again.
Your idyll is in danger
But while you go about your business, cultivate your fields or fish, you must be alert. Because you are not alone! Nasty monsters and powerful gods are always making your life difficult and want to hinder your affairs. To defend yourself, you can brew all sorts of potions from various ingredients. Go to adventurous areas in the game and fight fabulous creatures. Powerful artifacts can help you with this.
Watch the brand-new trailer from Fable Developers here:
The Kynseed RPG has already been in the works since 2017 and released in 2018 with Early Access. After five years, most of the game content is now polished and ready for the big stage. But this is not to be the end by a long shot. Work on further updates is already underway. Spring 2023 should see the Tavern update, which brings the ability to craft beer and clean up the mess of happy fairies and gnomes. Then, in the following months, two major story updates are to follow, which will add more characters, intrigue, and events. It has also been rumored for a long time that a co-op or multiplayer mode might be coming at some point. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.
