Proven Lands explores colorful, procedurally generated planets


3:00 PM on 03.12.2014



Exploring space is awesome. It always has been, and it always will be. With the rise of procedural content generation, the potential for utterly massive universes to explore has been unlocked, and a flood of titles are showing up that utilize the idea, like No Man's Sky or Starbound. Proven Lands is the next boundless space exploration game to keep an eye on, but it needs help with funding before it can become a reality.

The video above details the world generation in Proven Lands, and also touches on the exploration, crafting, and combat aspects. Admittedly, the combat does not look terribly interesting at this early stage of development, but the environments are stunning. The Minecraft-esque soundtrack helps set the tone as well.

Proven Lands is currently running a campaign on Kickstarter with a goal of £299,000, and is also on Steam Greenlight with hopes to release in 2015 for PC, Mac, and Linux.

Laser Fury looks like Diablo but neon and radical

I do not mean to suggest that Diablo is not good, but the dreary look never really grabbed me, even with Diablo III's improvements in that respect. Laser Fury, on the other hand, takes a hold of my eyes immediately...more

SteamWorld Heist's first screenshot leaves me wondering

While I tend to get annoyed when studios put out a lone screenshot, I can tolerate the practice depending on the circumstances. Image & Form doesn't have much in the way of assets for SteamWorld Heist, its turn-based foll...more
