Starvation will initially be the biggest threat as you move from the hunter and gathering nomadic life style of early homo sapiens to the later era of farming and settlements. - Harvest the resources you will need to build up your village and survive - Research new technologies that will unlock new buildings and technologies - Build dwellings for your people to give them a place to be safe from the elements and threats that stalk the night - Stalk your prey before butchering and cooking their carcasses to feed your growing village Homo Sapiens have been walking the earth for at least the last 100,000 years, after the last ice age began to recede ancient man started to migrate into northern Europe this is where we begin, In a harsh unforgiving climate life was difficult and the threats from the local wildlife and environment were deadly, archaeology shows how many of our ancestors met their demise, the question is will your tribe survive and thrive or become another lost civilization to be found slowly decomposing in the permafrost.

Rise of Man reviews and comments

Early access review at the moment, is not worth even these 10 euros... both the game is bugged and abnormal at the gameplay level: you have enough to eat (berries) and you warm up (wood) and your four guys still die (!); in the course of the game (short because you die very quickly without motive) you have one of the women who stretches and "circulates" like that on the map (a bug that JES Devi's have not seen???); you make an axe and the guy does nothing... In short, wait for it to improve (and there is work!) before considering buying "this"...

Early access review despite the promotion, I regret having put my €3 in the game. Admittedly it is in early access, but it is very buggé, uninteresting and, let's face it, ugly. The graphics would not have bothered me if the game had any interest but there it is a little too much for me. I who am a great follower of this kind of games I did not even manage to hold 1h before uninstalling it. To see if things will improve over time, but nothing that the system of assignment of tasks I do not like, in the end we stay next to the camp in order to click on the different constructions and there is no interest to follow the characters or to visit a little map (which anyway has no flavor).

Early access review in this game you build and manage your tribe in the stone age. It was a nice game project, simple mechanics village Builder/SIM/godlike. The concept was cool but unfortunately the dev is inactive and invisible for over a year. + Nice/fun. + graphics not so ugly. + taking, ambience/context. -very early access for now. (bugs, no content, etc.) I supported it at first with hope because the purchase was worth it, but it must be noted now that the game has no future. It has been and will be supplanted by other much better titles. It is abandoned and offers nothing that can justify its purchase (2 hours of play). It's on StandBy since late December 2017 so don't buy it.

Early Access Review I so would wish to like this game. But it is far, far, far from ready. First of all, no way to change controls... makes it annoying on non-qwerty keyboards. Make that *very* annoying. Interface is tedious, click choose, click over, and over... You get messages like "uma is starving to death"... then click on fire to feed her it says "no one is hungry". 10 seconds later you get a message "game over, you disgust me ... everyone is dead blah, blah" ... really?... I payed for a game and get "you disgust me???" .... I'm trying to be nice, because I'd want to say far worse things and I know the game is not finished... but it's not a promising start. I'll just stay that at this point, even on sale for 2.99euros playing feels like an enourmous waste of time except during those moments you feel totally frustrated and annoyed... Since I like the general idea, I'll be checking it again after the next update and will change my comment if it has improved. Please: controls for non qwerty and keyboard shortcuts to avoid the constant clicking
