The Indie Game Website writes: “The death of Pa was inevitable. Something of a connoisseur, Pa’s ambition in life was to try every type of food available at least once. It was Pa who discovered that the red berries near the cave were tasty, and that the brown mushrooms hurt to eat. It was gravity that ended Pa. An over-confident leap from a particularly high branch found him meeting the ground with a sickening thud, all the fruit and vegetables in the world useless on his broken bones. But that was four million years ago and we’ve moved on since then.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is an engine for this kind of story. In some ways, it’s the logical conclusion of the survival genre, the story of how humanity rose from the jungles of Africa to dominate the planet. Starting quite literally from scratch, you’ll lead your clan of hominids from the treetops to the open savannah and beyond, all the while learning how to master the environment around you.”
