Establish an enduring legacy and master your craft over the ages in Kynseed, a charming life sim that takes a page out of some of the most successful simulation games released in the last few years. Thanks to its beautiful art style and unique gameplay mechanics, Kynseed does enough to stand on its own in an increasingly crowded market.

Though some of the jobs available for you in Kynseed might feel just a bit too repetitive to enjoy, the fact that the game features a multi-generational mechanic might be enough incentive for players looking for something unique to try. How well does this translate to the overall gameplay and feel of the game? Well, that's what I'm here to discuss!

Live and Farm

The appeal of games like Stardew Valley or Harvest Moon has always been to see the effect your actions have on the game's town. That is a concept that Kynseed takes to the next level. Not only will your character get to experience the changes around their world, but their children will also be there to see what's become of the world.

When your character dies, you then take control of their children, in the same vein as Rogue Legacy. However, every NPC you meet also ages, making every decision you take in one life matter even more in the long run.

Establishing a farm and opening a business are the best ways for your character to change the world around them. Each job demands a different set of skills – and every one of them feels mechanically unique.

Business as Usual

Farming is not the only activity your character can develop. There are other jobs that townsfolk need, such as fishermen and shop owners, and that's where your character comes in.

While this concept sounds great in theory, as it lets you break free from the shackles of farming, in practice, many of these jobs are extremely tedious to play. Fishing is especially repetitive, feeling more like a chore compared to even real-life fishing. The silver lining here is that there is plenty of fish to collect, so fans of games like Animal Crossing can scratch their collecting itch with Kynseed.

Multi-generational Business

As I mentioned before, the "children" mechanic is one of the more unique aspects of Kynseed, and it actually makes the game feel all the more engaging. Seeing how the world changes with each new generation, and how your actions affected the lives of the town's NPCs, is one of the most unique experiences in a life sim game like Kynseed.

If anything there might be too much to do in Kynseed for its own good. As it is now, the game features mountains of content, but some areas still feel like a work in progress. This is certainly not a bad game, but it's one that still needs some work before it reaches its full potential.


Kynseed's unique multi-generational mechanics and solid narrative might keep you hooked for a while, but there's no denying that the game would benefit from some more meaningful content.
