LOVE is an cooperative first-person adventure game with graphics that resemble an impressionist painting. Players are pitted against AI (Artificial Intelligence) tribes in a race to reshape the environment and build a settlement. What sets it apart from other games is that the entire thing is procedurally-generated, meaning that the content is essentially created on the fly.
LOVE is a cooperative online first person adventure game (MMORPG). You play as a scavenger on a small planet who together with other scavengers will build a settlement by placing a Monolith some where in the world. This Monolith makes the ground lose so that you can shape the environment around it in to what ever you want. Build walls, catacombs, houses and shape your settlement any way you want.
To strengthen and evolve your settlement, you will need to head out in to the world to find tokens to bring back the settlement. Once placed in the settlement they give everyone in the settlement new tools to build new things and new abilities. With time you will gain tokens that will let you build power grids to build defenses and to manufacture power up pods.
On this planet you are not alone. Five other tribes The Omprelly Enclave, The Clondo Tribe, The Gindra Traders, The Kondosant Clan and The Con Dotita Raiders build their own settlements and compete for resources. They each hold their own token types that grant the settlements that can get them new powers. These tribes wont idly stand by if you provoke them, they may impression you, shell your settlement, attack it, or even occupy it. You may destroy their settlements but they will regroup and rebuild them somewhere else. Each time with a new design and a new challenges.
This Planet is far from stable, over time it changes, new mountains rise and old ones fall in to the sea. With many different areas, from fields to canyons to might glaciers, it constantly offer new things to explore.
LOVE has received a lot of positive reviews since in first came out and is probably worth a serious look for anyone interested in explorative MMO-type adventures.
