Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey will have players building up their own clan while fighting off deadly predator animals, starvation, and the elements throughout its campaign, which will span across generations and takes place over an 8 million year time period. According to the game’s Steam webpage, the decisions that players make can have a significant effect on their clan’s future.

“Evolution was not written in stone,” part of the webpage read. “Your decisions shape how you will overcome obstacles, increase your species, and what knowledge will pass on to future generations. Focus on specific attributes or choose a more balanced approach to survival. Your clan’s ability to survive will be directly impacted by your choices, making each player’s experience unique.”

There’s also a crafting mechanic along with needing to regularly eat, drink, and sleep in order to survive.
