A former group of developers who worked for Lionhead on the Fable series, have revealed the newest project and it looks very similar to Stardew Valley (if you are familiar with that).
It has been titled “Kynseed” and is described as “a whimsical sandbox adventure”, where players make “choices that impact generations to come.” It is a 2D RPG much in the same way as Stardew, were farming is the main attraction. Most of this game players will be watching crops and raising livestock, but at some point you branch out, maybe run a tavern.
Characters you meet remember what actions you take (so behave, or don’t), though these NPC’s have a shelf life and do age and pass on. Your own character will someday die, at which point you take control of your children and continue through many generations. Even though that sounds creepy and messed up.
Lionhead was shut down by Microsoft last year in March, leading to the cancellation of Fable Legends. Developers from the former studio founded PixelCount and Kynseed is the studio’s first independent game launch, set for December of 2018.
Right now, PixelCount is raising funds for the development of Kynseed through Kickstarter, with the goal being $38,850. They currently have $14,931. Kynseed is in development for PC, though they are planning to bring it to consoles. You can download a free version of the game from the Kickstarter page.
