If you have followed closely world seed, remember the game launched out of early access on Steam earlier this month with a free-to-play model that restricted your travel outside of the innermost realm until you paid. Some players consequently wondered if the game was Yes, really Free-to-play given that particular constraint, and the developer took heed, resulting in a change in business model for everyone across the board. Now travel will be unrestricted for everyone; The difference is that there is a 10 minute cooldown on fast travel for players who have not paid.
The goal, as the developer outlines, is to respect the investment and commitment of those who have already paid for the game, while making it easier for others to explore the game before deciding to pay. He’s also pleased to announce that with the full launch of the title, the game has reached 30,000 registered players, which is quite a substantial increase from the previous peak of 14,000. So good news for world seed, and good news for anyone considering trying the game.
