About

Build a village on a deserted island, and prepare for merciless natural disasters! Learn to choose the right items, understand nature's patterns, use real medieval construction and craft techniques in this turn-based management game.


Shipwrecked on a desert island



Seeds of Resilience is a turn-based simulation. You have to manage a team of survivors and build a village starting from nothing.

Turn based

At the beginning of each day, every villager produces action time. Then, you use this time to perform actions like harvesting or crafting. When all villagers have used all of their time, you end the turn and start a new day.


Face the storms



As if getting food and a shelter was not challenging enough, you have to face relentless storms that can damage buildings, crops and the land itself.

Natural disasters

The islands are regularly strucked by wind storms, earthquakes and tidal waves that will give you hard times but also some kind of reward. Winds can carry new seeds, the sea can bring unexpected resources from afar, as for the earth, more ore to mine.


Harvest, craft, build





Patiently go through the steps of re-creating civilization. Start with a stone axe and a shelter made out of branches to finally build elaborate houses and mechanized workshops.

Inspired by real medieval techniques





We made extensive research about medieval construction and craftsmanship, as well as survival techniques. We simplified and balanced data to fit the game’s needs, while remaining consistent with how things work in real life.


Seeds of Resilience’s features

•   Patiently go through the steps of re-creating a civilization: Start with a stone axe and a shelter made out of branches to finally build elaborate houses and mechanized workshops.
•   Survive in a harsh environment where storms and other natural disasters occur way too often.
•   Primary resource is the work time of the survivors. Carefully manage their actions and optimize their skill progression.
•   Detailed building construction: Choose natural resources according to their properties. Use them to craft the materials needed to assemble a building.
•   Realistic medieval construction and craft techniques. Everything could be made in real life the same way.
•   Observe the environment response to human activity. Maybe you should avoid fishing everyday at the same spot or cut down the whole forest.

Vote for the "community feature" that will make next patch



https://steamcommunity.com/linkfilter/?url=https://trello.com/b/VZ2LWnRS/seeds-of-resilience-public-roadmap

We want to include the community in our development! Alongside with our planned feature for next patch (which is aim for August 2nd) we are pushing 3 ideas.
- Creation of a 3rd map, to improve game length and diversity
- Show skill evolution on a panel ingame
- Customize tempest frequency at the beginning of a map pick

You can now jump in on our public Trello map and vote for your favorite feature!


https://www.reddit.com/r/SeedsOfResilience/wiki/index

We started a new wiki here to explain the mechanics more deeply. It takes a lot of time and we only spent an hour on it so you'll have to wait for more! For now, we gave details about Disasters & Skills.



A bit of bad news we have to be clear upfront about. We know we kind of pushed the campaign mode (and it's still appearing ingame) but Gan is developing the game alone. We have to be really careful about where we put the focus. Right now, we mainly need better UI/UX & a bit of late game content.

Campaign is very costly and lengthy to do, so we'd rather cancel it for now.
Rotating the map is 100% impossible with our current engine & technology.

We don't want to spend several months making a new system to only be able to rotate the map!

We know those are quite important for you but at least we can give our explanation & point of view about those.

V0.9 - The “Better life” update - Seeds of Resilience

UI/UX improvements
The biggest work in this update was to improve user interface and user experience. Let’s be more specific.
Clever harvesting and recycling

Harvesting and recycling stuff on the map is way quicker. You don’t have to select the right tab anymore! Say you are on the crafting tab and you just lack one branch to complete an axe recipe, you can simply click on a sapling to obtain a branch, and then click on the craft button.




Intuitive building selection
Before this update, selecting a building requires to close the parchment. Not intuitive at all, I know… At the time I made that, it seemed pretty logical to me, and I needed players feedback to realise it was not a good design.

Anyway, now you just have to click on a building and its description will open. From there you can repair it, recycle it, or use its special abilities like fishing.




Storage in a separate window
Storage is not in the parchment anymore, but in a separate window. Food rationing slider now shows in this window when you select the Food category.




Simple objectives for starters
In replacement of the sorry excuse for a tutorial we had before, there are now a series of objectives that should guide new players in the first turns of their first game. We’ve studied the things new players were often missing and invited them to do it in the tutorial so they cannot miss it anymore.

Later we could add long-term objectives that will be like achievements for experienced players.




Other improvements
•   A loading screen with a progress bar, displayed when you start a new game or load a save file.
•   “In construction” and “damaged building” indicators always visible on the map.
•   Waiting time for actions like crafting, fishing, working on a building have been drastically reduced (for crafting we went from 2 seconds to 0.15 second). So now this is nearly immediate so you don’t have to wait, and still this tiny delay gives feedback that makes you sure that the action was made.


Skills window
We asked players to vote for a feature (chosing between 3), and the winning one was a window showing information on skills evolution and unlocks.




Mine
This new building has to be placed next to an ore vein. It allows extracting large amounts of ore, which is essential when you start to produce metal tools. Using the mine is also quicker than breaking the boulders on the map.


Quarry
In the same idea, the quarry is an efficient and nearly endless source of stone, but requires to clear a large area to be built. Also, as you can see in the gif, this will alter terrain.




Localization
We’ve got translators working hard for us this month! The game is now available in three more languages: Portuguese, Russian and German. The Steam store page has also been translated.


I also worked on a tool that automatically finds missing translations, because I was always missing a few with each new update.

Minor changes
•   Woodcutting and woodworking skills have been merged, as were mining and stoneworking.
•   Cooking fish is now associated with the Survival skill. Villagers should now be able to learn Survival and Stoneworking skills (where before it was really hard to practice).
•   When a villager is level 1 in a skill, practicing level 0 actions will make it progress twice less than practicing level 1 actions.
•   Tree stumps are now removable with a pickaxe.
•   Pressing Escape when a raft is coming to the island will instantly end the movement (so you don’t have to wait)
•   Some buildings were showing material lines with a required quantity of zero. Those lines are now hidden.
•   Removed “difficulty level” in save file previews

Bugfixes
I spent a few days on bugfixes. I wished I could have done more but we chose to focus on new features first. The interesting thing is that some of the UI/UX improvements fixed several bugs by just being implemented.
•   Fixed bugs that occured while loading a save (details are too technical to explain shortly)
•   Bronze tools recipes now really produce bronze tools instead of rudimentary ones
•   Screen resolutions higher than 1920×1200 are now selectable
•   Fixed workshop requirement tooltip
•   Fixed skill progress bar that was showing 100% before really reaching the next level (it happenned when the value was something like 99.7%, it was rounded to 100).
•   Several minor UI adjustements

•   Prevent quarry rotation
•   Replaced mining skill by stonecutting skill when working in quarry and mine
•   Made loading screen slider non-interactable
•   Discord & Wiki icons on title screen no longer appear above save/load/new game windows

•   Fixed loading bar that didn’t always start at 0%
•   Harvesting using a tool always consumed 1 use, even when the harvest required 2 or more uses. Fixed.
•   Fixed plants prematurely dying after reload

Patchnote 0.9c

Bugfixes ---
* A building you tried to place on empty but not flat enough terrain would show green cells even though you couldn't place it. It now shows red cells in this case.
* Elements on clay terrain were not accessible (you couldn't harvest or recycle resources, neither select building). This has been fixed, and now you cannot harvest clay if there is something on it.
* When building the fishing shack, the fishing rods appeared before the floor under them. The algorithm sorting elements to make them appear in a logical order in the construction animation has been improved, though it's not perfect yet.
* Fixed repairing building not consuming materials
* Fixed turn number coming back to 1 after reloading
* Fixed next storm and newcomers delay not memorised when saving
* Fixed bug that allowed multiple copies of the same villager to come on the island
* Fixed a bug during saving that corrupted the save file (related to the quarry)
* Added saving of cells altitudes * Corrected translation ref on quarry details

SEASONS Update! Survive against the four seasons!
Seeds of Resilience - Tavrox



0.11 - The seasons update

Seasons

This is it! It’s been a huge amount of work on our side as we had to draw an integrate lots of new graphics, so we have autumn leaves and snow everywhere in winter.
More, the growth of each and every plant has been entirely remade, to comply with the calendar. There probably still is some balancing to do, so please give us feedback!

Most trees and plants produce seeds or roots that remain in a dormant state during winter and sprout in spring. There’s also a seasons wheel, with a storm indicator attached to it:
