What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to go to Early Access for player feedback and to help grow the game. Kynseed is no doubt an ambitious game and we want to involve those who will play it to not only help craft the game, but to feel involved and valued in our community. Following our Kickstarter last year, we’ve been hard at work expanding the scope to encompass a full season of the game and get more of the systems in place that will shape the full version.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“As with all games, nailing down exact dates is tricky, but we are looking towards minimum of a year after the launch of Early Access.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We hope to expand to the world of the game significantly. We currently have 1 haven in The Prologue, consisting of 14 regions. We plan to have 6 havens, a few hubs, various combat zones, and realms ‘beyond’. We will be introducing new items, NPC’s who age, and features that give players many hours of enjoyment. Combat and the progress of time are just two of the major additions we plan to add with our monthly updates.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, the initial version of Early Access covers The Prologue of the game which includes:

  • 14 regions within The Vale, the haven you call home.
  • 38 charming (and not so charming) characters to interact with.
  • Many items to find and collect on your travels.
  • Tasks and events spanning a Summer month during your childhood.
  • Blacksmith apprenticeship first draft pass.
  • Each region has its own beautiful music to make your exploration a pleasure.
  • Keyboard & Mouse plus Controller support with an interface that switches seamlessly between the two.
  • A large number of appalling puns and word plays, plus references to things nobody born outside the UK beyond 1990 will likely understand.

We'll be adding so much more as we go along - this is just scratching the surface.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, we plan to gradually raise the price at certain points when the content and features meet the right level of quality. We will always aim to deliver a full experience and never fleece you with add-ons and microtransactions.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We want to involve the community in all aspects of the development process. We are always available for chatting on Discord, both our forums and Steam's forums, and of course via Twitter as well as the magical Book of Faces.”

About This Game

Kynseed is a sandbox RPG adventure life sim brought to you by developers who worked on the Fable series for Lionhead Studios.

Live your life in a quirky world where everyone ages and dies, including your pets! Take control of the mystical Kynseed and grow your family legacy over generations as you pass your skills and powers down to your children.

  • Run a tavern, apothecary, goods store or blacksmith. Farm your land. Go adventuring and battle dark faery tale creatures. Or do them all. The choice is yours.
  • Develop relationships with NPC’s who have their own lives and loves, and who will remember your deeds, actions and pranks!
  • Find and use Proverbs to unlock the secrets of each ingredient, creature and inhabitant of a place where folk tales are all true.
  • Gather the materials to create better items, craft beers or to mix cures for a range of bizarre maladies for the simple people of the land.
  • Deal with the mysterious Fae gentleman, Mr Fairweather and buy strange artifacts from him that aid your chores, help you in combat or let you just mess with the world….but be aware of the life tax he extracts annually!
In Kynseed, live your lives the way you choose in a lovingly hand-crafted and huge 2D open world.
