Lands Afar is a series of virtual ecosystems for the PC in the style of a natural history documentary where the player fights for survival as an eagle, turtle or tortoise. There are no quests or mini-games, no story or ending, the only objective is to survive. Take advantage of the open-world to explore and discover accurately modelled ecosystems from around the world.
A natural and believable ecosystem awaits the player, in which AI controlled animals behave as in the wild, adhering to the local food chain and looking after their offspring. The sim runs in real-time, i.e. one game minute = 60 seconds, with full day-night transitions using the actual coordinates of the location. Hunger and thirst will be set up accordingly.
As a result of the realism, Lands Afar simulations engage the player into the lives of some of the world's most exotic species and at the same time increase awareness of endangered species. Emphasis has been placed on performance, so that Lands Afar can be enjoyed on most desktops and laptops. Although blood exists, it is less graphic than that seen on wildlife documentaries meaning it is suitable for all ages.
