Low-Poly Ecosystem Survival Simulator Ecoser Now Live On Kickstarter
Solo development studio Snow Angel Studios has launched its Kickstarter for Ecoser. The developer is seeking funds to finish the game plus cover the costs related to production without compromising the game’s quality.
Ecoser is an ecosystem-driven survival-based game. Players are tasked with the long-term goal of building up a living creature but causing as little damage to the ecosystem as possible. The game has low polygon graphics, but its characters and environments are colorful.

The main characters, which includes the player, are part of the Eepers. The Eepers are raised and taught how to live within the environment. They will have to ensure that if they hunt animals for food, there are enough animals who survive, so they don’t become extinct.
If trees are needed to build structures, new trees must be replanted. The town can also be built in more environmentally-friendly ways.

The environment can be just as harmful as the Eepers. The weather and nature can provide to be a tough opponent. Within the forests are also aggressive wildlife who may try and hunt those hunting them.
The game changes with each playthrough. The game is randomly generated with each playthrough. At the beginning of the game, players will learn how to coexist with their environment, plus build shelters, capture and domesticate animals, gather recourses, and defend their character.
Actions have consequences, so players will have to play carefully. One example the Kickstarter uses is regarding the environment. If players spend too much time cutting down trees, they may form deforestation attributes. Animals will begin to flee the forest, trees will take longer to grow, and the number of predators will increase.
Regarding the game, Adam Stankiewicz, solo dev at Snow Angel Studios, stated:
Your goal in Ecoser is not to dominate the world but merely to coexist with the environment and sustain yourself without destroying that around you.
The game does not have a set release date at this time. The developer plans on releasing a worldwide public beta on December 17. Snow Angel Studios continues to be in communication with its backers. So far, there has been a Q&A session for anyone who has questions. Anyone interested in the game was welcome to join.

Consoles And Mac Will Receive Additional Skin Tone Updates For The Sims 4 This Month
The Sims 4 players on PC received a massive content update at the end of 2020. The update was part of EA and Maxis‘ promise to add in more diverse content and improve existing content.
EA also included the massive update for Mac and console players, but unfortunately, there were some issues. These players had to wait for months before the update to the update came their way, but now the developer has found a solution. While Mac players have access to mods, console players are restricted to the content officially released so far.

The skin tone update adds over 100 different color options to the game. The colors are all further categorized by cool, neutral, warm, and miscellaneous colors. These colors are an additional option for those who want to utilize some of the game’s more unique options like Plant Sims, Vampires, Aliens, and more.
While players can choose a basic skin tone color in the Create-a-Sim (CAS) screen, the update allows players to adjust the colors with a color slider. Players can further adjust these colors for players with a certain tone in mind.

The update also added color sliders for makeup. Some of the makeup options are very vivid and bright. With the new sliders, players can adjust the transparency or opacity for a more subtle look.
The developer further improved the compression for both new and exciting skin tones. This is an additional improvement that includes strengthening the quality of suntans and sunburns.
Three more base game hairstyles were improved in the major update. This includes children’s hairstyles like the braided ponytail with baby hairs, without baby hairs, and the flat-top texture hairstyle.
These updates don’t mean the end of improvements for The Sims 4 for all players. The developer stated last year that the improvements are a journey and not a destination. With every update, the developer will further improve on existing content in the game.
EA is also working with some of the Game Changers within The Sims community. With their input, they are taking suggestions on how to improve the in-game CS content to be more inclusive.
