Set for release on August 11, 2021 Seed of Life is an upcoming semi-open world, action-RPG, that challenges players through puzzle solving. Developed by MedLight, and published by Leonardo Interactive, the upcoming title has recently made its demo debut, and while there is still a lot to unearth, players got a glimpse of what the Seed of Life will play like.
Life Finds A Way
Seed of Life is a third-person platformer that tells a dystopian story about the planet Lumia. This world has been invaded and completely destroyed by an alien race in search of extracting its life force. Players take the role of Cora, the last remaining being from Lumia, as she journeys into the darkness in search of light to save her homeworld. Cora’s ultimate objective is to find an alien device called “The Seed” that is capable of generating the essence of life and rescuing Lumia from impending doom.
As you explore the planet in search of salvation Cora will find strange artifacts and new abilities that allow for more creative and complex puzzles. From the gameplay trailers, we can see that there is a huge variety in level designs and jaw-dropping artwork that serves as background to the maze-like planet. Accompanied by an alien assistant called Nar, Cora is not only able to solve problems, but also fend off the remaining alien invaders from Lumia.
Triple-A On the Outside, Indie on the Inside
One of the biggest selling points for Seed of Life is the narrative-driven, dramatic story that the game follows. It markets itself as a game about the persistence of life, which could signify more mature themes, and philosophical themes surrounding Cora’s journey. However from the demo, we can confirm that Seed of Life looks, plays, and feels like a great game for all audiences, surely different demographics will enjoy different aspects of the game, but this allows for younger gamers to jump in on Cora’s adventure.
The game should run smoothly on most machines and has showcased straightforward gameplay, simple commands, and varied mechanics. Puzzles and combat felt simple, yet entertaining. Nonetheless, the most impressive aspect of Seed of Life has to be the outstanding graphics, and world ambiance, every level feels unique and distinct giving players a refreshing experience.
Seed of Life looks very, very good, however feels very similar to Kena: The Bridge of Spirits, The Pathless, Tomb Raider, and other platformers. Its upcoming success on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC will be highly related to how impactful the narrative regarding Cora’s story will be. Seed of Life needs a great story to set itself apart from those titles, since gameplay while satisfying is not exactly groundbreaking or refreshing.
Another thing to be aware of is that Seed of Life is developed by an indie company, which means it might not have the replayability, or longevity of a triple-A title. The game won’t have over one hundred hours of content and might be comparatively smaller than its direct counterparts, which will demand that Seed of Life pack a punch in order to find its identity.
