Use your intellect rather than your brawn.
"By trading in weapons for wit, we've truly created a simulated society
and developed a game that engages you on an entirely different level than
any MMG before," said Lars Kroll, CEO of Runestone. "We have really
taken the simulated society idea a big step further, where players can ascend
to great political heights within the Seed world, but only if NPCs and players
alike allow it through a robust democratic system."
Interact with believable NPCs.
"NPCs play a significant part in Seed," added Kroll. "We have
focused on making the NPCs varied and interesting to work with. All NPCs in
Seed have their own behaviors, motivations and goals, powered by a sophisticated
AI engine with distinct emotion, knowledge, and event response systems. They
remember, and they judge."
