Proven Lands Is A Sandbox Roguelike With An Astronaut
Proven Lands, by developers thesetales, is a sandbox roguelike set in the expanse of space, where you play as an astronaut exploring a procedurally generated alien world straight out of a piece of science-fiction. The game is described by the developers as a “A 3D science-fiction sandbox survival game” with heavy influences from Star Trek, Don’t Starve, Cataclysm and Project Zomboid to name a few. However, with Proven Lands the game’s design has far more emphasis on exploration and storytelling. In order to get a sense of the game and its mechanics, you can check out a pre-alpha demo.
The procedurally generated landscape of the alien world you explore has different topographies, weather effects, rivers, natural disasters, and other environmental effects, plus there are various alien creatures to interact with living in their own unique ecosystems. Like many other survival games, you will have to craft, build, forge alliances with those around you. But on a more interesting note you’ll eventually be able to explore other planets, use vehicles, meet AI companions and create outposts on other worlds. There will also be a co-op multiplayer, where you can share the experience with a friend.

Proven Lands has a strong focus on exploration, and also focuses on the storyline of which there are many. The game promises to have two very different story delivery systems. One which is an optional scripted story with various philosophical themes (such as friendship, bravery, responsibility, etc). The other story delivery system offers a story delivered by the AI game meta engine, which tailors the experience specifically to the player, in a similar fashion to D&D. Your own character will have their own factors that will drive them, with traits and moods much in the way of a Sim from the Sims series of games.
