Get a closer look at this exciting new game before getting hands on with new preview code

Bangkok, Thailand, 31st August, 2021. Green Man Gaming Publishing and solo game designer Erik Rempen, are thrilled to give fans a peek behind the curtain of the highly anticipated new roguelite village-builder Kainga: Seeds of Civilization. 

Released at Gamescom last week, this new video will take you on a journey deep into the heart of Kainga and showcases some of the new biomes, game mechanics and challenges players can look forward to when the game launches later this year. Fans can also download a new playable demo for Kainga: Seeds of Civilization from Steam now!

Kainga: Seeds of Civilization is a roguelite village-builder set in a world full of mystery and surprise. Taking on the role of the Thinker, the leader of the village, you will need to adapt to the procedurally generated environment and surroundings and make the right choices to allow your people and village to flourish. The Thinker is responsible for passing the players’ decisions and commands on to the people. Although the citizens are somewhat expendable, if the Thinker falls, you lose. Much like the king in chess, they’re weak and vulnerable and must be protected at all costs. 

Instead of following the long-winded city builder formula, Kainga: Seeds of Civilization is focused on short, 30 minute to 1 hour challenges. Each challenge is a fresh and diverse experience in a new location which still allows the player to make progression between runs.
