Founded in 2013 and led by Mundi Vondi, CEO, Klang Games is a game studio that is exploring the future of humanity through various forms of media. At its core there is SEED, a large-scale virtual world in which players shape their realities.
Set in the new world of Avesta, SEED offers players a platform where they can explore, participate in a player-driven economy, self-govern, and contribute to their community. SEED is experienced through its AI-driven virtual humans, called Seedlings. Seedlings are customizable, allowing for creative player expression, and rely on the active caretaking skills of the players. Currently in the Pre-Alpha state, SEED’s focus is on creating an online space where people can connect, work together, and build strong communities.
