While the survival genre has never necessarily been a favorite of mine I’ve found it quite fascinating to see the variety of what’s possible for it on the Switch. Varying from more action-oriented and casual to hardcore and somewhat strategic there have been incremental options all along the spectrum to choose from. Seeds of Resilience falls sort of in the middle, though immediately a certain bland sterility to the experience is pretty apparent. Lacking in an engaging story or characters of note, or even a sense of mystery, the game slumps out of the gate and unfortunately never manages to redeem itself with its other aspects. Feeling better suited to play on a PC the controls feel clumsy and a general lack of helpful instruction doesn’t help either. There are elements of a survival experience to be found here, but among its genre peers it struggles.
