Kainga: Seeds of Civilization Launches Anniversary Edition

Kainga: Seeds of Civilization Launches Anniversary Edition

Acclaimed PC roguelite village-builder Kainga: Seeds of Civilization turns one this month, and to celebrate, solo developer Erik Rempen and Green Man Gaming Publishing are thrilled to release a special Anniversary Edition supporters pack DLC. 

Available today, fans who have enjoyed Kainga over the past year will be able to download the official Kainga Anniversary Edition, which will unlock brand-new cosmetic-only DLC that allows them to switch the outfits of all 8 Thinkers to newly designed alternatives, adding an extra bit of flair to their world leaders. 

Solo developer Erik Rempen has drawn over 450 new frames of animation to bring these new Thinker designs to life and further support the game’s development. Each alternative has been designed as a unique parallel to the current Thinker outfit, allowing players to follow the ‘B-Side’ versions of the Thinkers. Each ‘B-Side’ Thinker comes with a new starting loadout, 3 new festivals and a new bonus passive technology. These can be unlocked straight away in the base game by doing just one of the following: 

  • Unlocking all the basic technologies in the shop

  • Unlocking all the Thinkers 

  • Mastering one Thinker 

Once one of these is completed, players will unlock a quest to access the ‘B-Side’ Thinkers and add that extra spice to the world of Kainga! The Anniversary Edition DLC will be available for $1.99 / €1.99 / £1.69 via Steam. (The DLC will be live on Steam at 5pm GMT/6pm CET/12pm ET/9am PT) 

Can you master the beautiful but dangerous lands of Kainga?

Welcome to the mystical world of Kainga, magical lands full of wonder and beauty, where strange other-wordly beasts roam. Take control of a Thinker and grow your village into a thriving civilization, adapting and surviving against all odds. 

Kainga: Seeds of Civilization is a unique roguelite-inspired village-builder. Be warned, its stunning landscapes hide many threats. Other tribes compete for resources, the weather threatens to wash you away, and colossal creatures can rise up and destroy all you’ve built. As you begin to take wins and earn karma, the world begins to unravel with new unique lands, technologies, challenges and Thinkers to unlock, discover and learn. 


  • Build, Survive, and Adapt - As the Thinker you must use your knowledge of Kainga to lead your tribe, learn through trial and error how to adapt to your surroundings and develop a village that can flourish. Protect your Thinker at all costs but make sure to use them to expand your technology and govern your tribe. 

  • Encounter Mysterious and Dangerous Creatures - Colossal creatures can be found lurking throughout Kainga’s varied biomes, often hidden in the sea or deep underground.  Learn to live in harmony with them, tame them and add them to your economy or use their strength in combat against your rivals. 

  • Explore a Beautiful and Threatening Land - Discover what the 8 unique biomes have to offer, each with its own beauty and dangers. Lead your tribe to adapt and survive across barren deserts, tropical archipelagos, icy mountains and lush jungles.

  • Pick up the Pieces and Try Again - Death is not the end. Learn from your failures and begin again in a new world. Complete challenges to unlock new biomes, technologies, and Thinkers. Take your newfound knowledge to build bigger and better cultures. 

Kainga: Seeds of Civilization is out now via Steam for £14.99 / €16.99 / $19.99 and is available with a HUGE 50% anniversary discount for a very limited time.
