“...a challenging platform puzzler with sometimes odd solutions”

About This Game

800 years ago, an alien species at the other side of our galaxy discovered that their sun in going supernova. They decided to move to other planets. However, space travel would require many too many ships and fuel. Also, many planets have inadequate atmosphere and some even host intelligent life that could become hostile to newcomers.

To solve these problems, they built robots that would reach the target planets, clear out any lifeforms that got in the way and seed the planet with plants that would alter the atmosphere and create habitable ecosystems. They sent small spaceships throughout the galaxy. Each one contained a portal device that would link the target world with their homeworld. The teleport link would be first used to transfer the seeder robots. When the planet is cleaned and transformed, aliens would use the portals to transfer themselves to safety.

The ship destined to Earth malfunctioned and crash landed in desolate part of pre-Columbian North America. Following a couple of earthquakes, the ship got buried deep underground and seemingly forgotten.

Fast forward to 21st century. What used to be an alien crash site is now a thriving skatepark that is about to be demolished. You and your friends are watching the construction crew tear down your favorite skating spot, when strange things start happening to the workers...

The Game


Seeders is a puzzle-platformer with tight and responsive controls and some really challenging puzzles. If you share my opinion that most recent games in the genre have been too easy on the puzzles - then this game is for you. This game will make you stop and think. You will think about the puzzles when you are away from the computer. The puzzles don't have many moving parts, so it's easy to combine them in your head. But the solution is rarely obvious and usually isn't the first thing that comes to your mind.

The game engine allows you to experiment with the world and try different approaches until you find one that works. Some of the puzzles can be solved in multiple different ways. Checkpoints are abundant and it's always easy to go for one more try. In the first chapter there are subtle clues in the environment like billboards or signs on walls that should give you hints.

Features

  • single player adventure
  • local co-op with additional puzzles designed for two players
  • original soundtrack
  • support for various controllers
  • support for older graphics cards and computers
  • over 100 unique puzzles including switches, sensors, doors, elevators, movable blocks, lasers, mirrors, driving vehicles, flying a spaceship, manipulating gravity and your enemies

Players who want extra challenge can try to collect all the hats, which requires solving some optional difficult puzzles or solving the existing puzzles in different ways.

Controller support


Controllers are fully supported. Some standard ones like Xbox 360 controller work out of the box. All others can be configured within the game.

Single player game can be played with the keyboard or controller. Co-op requires at least one controller. Other multiplayer modes require 1-4 controllers, depending on number of players. Only one player can use the keyboard.

    • Memory: 1 GB RAM
    • Graphics: OpenGL 1.4 or better

You are a skater in a 2d environment. If you touch spikes you die. That's all.

Also, there is local co-op which supports controllers: CRAZY HUH?! I'll suggest it just because of it.

Oh, and there are red Tardis around where you are supposed to save and use as checkpoints but no. You just spawn at the beginning of the level.

Great puzzle game! The graphics are average and it takes some time to get used to the physics, but once you do, the game really shines. Most of the puzzles are very well thought of and it reminds me of Braid in that regard.

The game requires out-of-the-box thinking and sometimes trial-and-error approach. Sometimes it takes multiple plays to execute the puzzle even if you know the solution. But, it is not really a problem because there are plenty of checkpoints, so you'd lose a couple of seconds the most.

Beside physics puzzles, there are also logic puzzles where you have to lure enemies away or make them press a switch or push a block for you.

And there are a couple of pure logic puzzles which add to depth and variety. I especially like the rotating numeric wheel puzzle at the power generator in chapter five. That was a hard nut to crack.

Recommended 9/10.

Seeders is not the type of game that I would recommend for everyone. Seeders is a difficult puzzle platformer that could easily frustrate some people. If you don't like frustrating puzzle platformers this game is probably not for you.

If you like hard to very hard puzzle platformers though you will probably love the game. The game has some very unorthodox solutions to the puzzles in the game. You will need to think out of the box in order to solve a lot of them.

The other thing that makes the game pretty hard is that it requires a lot of trial and error. Even if you figure out how to solve the puzzle sometimes you need to do the puzzle multiple times since there is little room for error before you have to reset the puzzle. This can get frustrating.

As far as length is concerned, the game is longer than what my playtime indicates since I ended up giving up on the game because it got so frustrating that it wasn't worth continuing to play.

Other than the extreme difficulty, Seeders is a solid game. If you don't like frustratingly hard puzzle platformers, I would recommend not purchasing the game. If you really want a challenge and don't get frustrated quickly, I think you could enjoy Seeders.

Note: I received a review copy of Seeder for free from the developer. Other than receiving the review copy for free I received no other compensation for this review.

The dev gave me this game, and this is my honest review.
I haven't gotten that far in the game, so this review will be continually updated.

This game seems to draw inspiration from games like BRAID and LIMBO, but still is a unique game in its own right.

PROS
+ Puzzles are unique and swagful - hard, but good hard.
+ Tight controls, even though it sort of contradicts the skateboard thing.
+ Music is okay. Not amazing, bot doesn't get tiring.
+ Options! If the music does get tiring, then I can mute it and play the soundtrack from Braid to help me feel puzzle-y! This helps. Sometimes. :P
+ One of the best games I've seen w/ only one dev. Very impressive! Also, the dev seems very devoted and responds to users.
+ Mini "LogiLock" puzzles that sort of feel like a 2D rubix cube
+ Bare bones of a level editor. (later updates will make it more user-friendly)
+ HATS! UNLOCKABLE HATSHATSHATS!
CONS
- The graphics are rather lackluster.
- Sometimes a puzzle takes longer than it should - I figure out the solution, but I have to retry many times to position things *just* right. However, this scenario is pretty uncommon.
- The story isn't that captivating, so you should probably be into playing the puzzles themselves.

TL;DR / SUMMARY
Hard, physics based puzzle-platformer provides good puzzles. There are no fillers, and gameplay is solid. Don't play this game if you just care about story or graphics, as the meat is in the puzzles :). Sometimes it takes trial-and-error is needed in positioning when the solution is apparent, making the puzzle take longer than it should.

8.5/10

Also, It's better to have previous experience with puzzle games. I recommend getting Teslagrad, LIMBO, or Braid (a few of my personal favorites) before playing this. If you liked any of those, then get this.

It's clear that the creators of this game spent numerous hours thinking and then modifying each screen to perfection! Every object can and should be used, but the physics of the game allows you to extend or invent the purpose of every stone, block or moving piece. Simply amazing. You don't call yourself a true logical platformer without spending hours with this game (and cursing more or less freqently). Forget the blocky graphics from demo - it's not important at all once you get into the game. This one is a gem! Strongly recommended! (But beware, some levels are very difficult so before you start, make yourself a large coffee ;)
