In my previous blog post I told you about Niche – a genetics survival game. I spoke about how I came to find it and how I fell in love with the game. I told you about the demo version and shared my video on the demo. The version 0.4.1 was where ‘The Pixcy Pack’ was born.
In this post I will introduce you to the new release version 0.6.1 of Niche.
Using the easy mode we play the Peaceful Meadows Sandbox. We start with Taku and Rela, I probably pronounce their names wrong but I think that it makes it more fun to play with the pronunciation.
What I have noticed in this version of Niche – a genetics survival game
Our creatures start off hidden in the grass.
They close their eyes when their turns are up and they sleep.
The shadows are so realistic in how they move into a new day. The direction of the sun etc.
There are more textures in the tiles.
The range of plants, grasses and reeds have expanded and include carnivorous ones.
The interface has changed.
It is more complex to use mutations and making educated decisions on the mutations menu is more challenging as careful thought is now required.
The mutations options have expanded.
Some rogue males run around making the females pregnant.
If you find a baby bearyena you can tame it.
There is an icon showing when a female is pregnant.
The colour of the gems on their chest can be changed to a few different options.
If you want to change their names it’s very easy to do so. I like the names they are given so I don’t really use this feature.
There are different worlds each having their own animals and predators suited to that environment.
I really like the way you are able to hunt for a wider variety of animals.
After starting my own youtube gaming channel and getting hooked on gaming I decided to look for something a bit different. I scrolled through the different games on Steam looking for a game that would really grab my attention. I stumbled across one in particular that had an awesome picture called Niche – a genetics survival game. I decided to do some research as I didn’t want to get something before knowing more about the game.
I was immediately attracted to this gripping game with it’s stunning graphics. The gameplay being so different to anything that I have ever played before. After deciding to get the demo and create a video to get feedback, I was hooked. The demo was great, really great. Here is the actual video of my demo gameplay.
