If you haven’t already heard of Kynseed, it’s a “quirky sandbox RPG adventure life sim from veterans of the Fable series”. You can catch up with our previous post of Kynseed here, before diving into all of the most recent updates. Raise a family, farm the land, run shops, and explore the world as its inhabitants age around you by heading over to Steam now!

Now that the dust has settled from the Steam Early Access release back in 2018, the developers, PixelCountStudios, have begun taking everyone’s feedback and adding it their own plans. Thus, the Kynseed Roadmap was made. Below we have written up this map for you which covers both the short-term view of updates to come as well as a long-term view of the entire game.
