You are the AI controlling a ship filled with 1000 cryogenically-frozen colonists, the last survivors of the human race. Your task is to find a suitable planet to be humanity's new home.

Push your luck: do you settle on a not-quite-ideal planet, or keep searching and risk your ship being damaged on the journey? The planets you are encounter are randomly generated, and as you travel you encounter random events, so each playthrough is different. See the stories of the colonies you found, and keep trying for a higher score.

NEW GAME: If you enjoy Seedship, you should check out the spiritual successor, Beyond the Chiron Gate.

The downloadable versions were made using Lazerwalker's Twine App Builder tool. They should function the same as the online version.
