While most pioneering involves figuring out how to oppress the local natives, Eigen Lenk takes a more romantic view of the activity. His game- simply titled Pioneers– is a turn based exploration RPG that takes place in the pseudo-New World, where players take up the role of a pseudo-European adventurer making a name for himself in the strange land while trying to gather resources to survive. With only a 4 color palette, the 2D pixel world looks pretty great. Check it in this trailer here:
The game feels like a low-res Don’t Starve, but with much more direction than that particular indie game. You can try it out for yourself by downloading the latest PC build of the game- at the game’s website here. Note that the game is still in active development and is packed with unfinished bits.
No release information has yet been announced for the game.
