The Seed

Story-driven post-apocalypse

The Seed is a modern approach to the classic genre of "Choose Your Own Adventure" gamebooks. As such, it’s a graphic, interactive novel where the choices you make have consequences for the plot branching and shape the world around you. Playing our game you’ll first and foremost have the impression that you’re reading an engrossing book, with lifelike characters, plausible story, complex lore and all other characteristics that define a solid reading experience. However, there will be a multitude of factors influencing your sensory perception like background ambience and dynamic illustrations. Moreover, every chapter will feature a unique concept artwork and you will also have a map and access to your inventory. The story will present you with moral dilemmas which you’ll be required to resolve based on your gear, social standing, health, location and survival situation.

All in all, it’s a new dimension of reading and a new type of book. Based on navigational decisions in your playthrough you will travel through a variety of post-apocalyptic locations such as dead forests, windy hills, abandoned homes, tunnels, bunkers, sewers, mines, ruins, improvised camps, ships, oil rigs, boats and many more. You play the role of the main character and set the course for his decisions, ethics and priorities. That is also why The Seed is written in first person, present tense to you let you feel that the story is reflecting your own current situation. The protagonist, as with any good novel, has his background pre-defined, but you are in control of his actions whenever an important plot anchor is generated. The engine will track and analyze your decisions and determine the plot based on what sort of character you are. For example, if you role play as a bandit disregarding any notions of morality, the story will reflect this and as a result can get incredibly dark and sinister.

The Seed

Eastern Europe 2026

In August 2015 a series of chain effects trigger what is referred to simply as "The Event" that is a matter of days drives the humanity as we know it to the brink of extinction. The most powerful nations launch full scale nuclear and chemical attacks against one another in a misguided belief that they are the source of danger. They couldn't, however, have been more wrong. In 2026 the world as we knew it has ceased to exist. There was no one to witness its end because the end arrived when nobody expected it...

This series of occurrences known simply as "The Event" turned the world into ashes and wiped out almost all of humanity. Remaining survivors hide underground to protect themselves from the hostile environment that surrounds them. No electricity. No infrastructure. No means of transportation. No media. Scarce supplies, contaminated water and rotten food. Every minute is a struggle and those that live to see another day can consider themselves lucky. It's now more than a decade since The Event and groups of survivors can be seen returning to the surface. They want to learn what has become of it, to know if it’s already habitable, but most of all – they want to survive. Some are bent on finding their families and loved ones, wanting to retain their sense of morality, while others have reduced themselves to basic animal instincts.

“Humanism” no longer exists in its contemporary definition and must change its meaning to correspond to this unwelcoming world filled with sadness and devoid of all color. The remaining human population is now facing a new threat that is likely to consume the lives of every last survivor.

How can you make the earth fertile once again?
Can you direct the progress of humanity?
What will be YOUR destiny?

You play the role of the main character and set the course for his decisions, ethics and priorities. That is also why The Seed is written in first person, present tense to you let you feel that the story is reflecting your own current situation.
