PixelCount Studios is celebrating Earth Day by planting a tree for every backer of its upcoming indie title, Kynseed. Trees play an important role in this pixel art RPG; beyond the vibrant green forests and meows hand-crafted by this team of veterans from Lionhead Studios, each player will plant their own Kynseed, a magical seed which will intertwine their family tree with that of an in-game tree. By teaming up with California-based Eden Reforestation Project, a non-profit which has already planted 200,000,000 trees, PixelCount Studios will not only be planting trees for current donors, it will also fund a trees in honor of all future donors.
As of a few days ago, our collective total of backers just hit the 4,300 mark. That means that all of you wonderful people have helped plant 4,300 trees so far. – Matt Allen, PixelCount Studios Production Manager
