Hollow Tree Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Shape of the World. Shape of the World is described as an ephemeral first-person exploration game where the world grows around you in a procedurally populated environment. Hollow Tree Games aims to raise $75K in 30 days in order to release the game in Summer 2016.
In Shape of the World, your presence is the driving force behind its procedurally populated environment as you establish permanent monuments to mark your journey.
Shape of the World builds on the ideas of experiential games like Proteus and Flower where points and combat don’t enter the equation.
“An evolving world that grows with each step and hints at distant landmarks encourages the player to explore. Shape of the World offers a unique unfolding experience for those seeking an alternative to quest-driven adventure games.”
