As the adage says, “If you don't know where you've come from, you don't know where you're going”.
And, the farther point you can get to find out where’s that exactly through a videogame is by playing Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey.
1 ORIGINAL STORY
Getting into a hominid skin and figuring out how to manage everything to evolve.
So, this isn’t something you will find in a lot of games out there.
Furthermore, the feeling of being dropped in the middle of a jungle on your own, without any other guidance than your senses and instinct, is an experience that’s worth to mention.
And, to consider if you’re tired of the same repetitive stories in the gaming industry.
2 BEAUTIFUL GRAPHICS
The guys from Panache have taken care of every detail to recreate in a beautiful way how the earth looked like back in the Neocene.
On the other hand, the modeling of the species, their hair, expressions, and their movement animations are going to make you ask yourself if you’re watching a NatGeo documentary instead of playing Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey very often.
3 VAST MAP
Jungle, veld, and beaches… Our ancestors took thousands of years to walk through them in ancient Africa.
Okay, maybe it’s going to take you a lot less time, but without any doubt, the exploring and migration process will be a long-term adventure.
That will give you a lot of hours of finding out new amazing and dangerous things as you advance in your clan evolution.
What happens if you take a stone and start hitting a stick diagonally with it?
Maybe you and I know the answer, but definitely, our ape great-great-great-great grandparents didn't.
We must teach them how to break, combine and use things as tools that help them evolve.
Unveiling the properties of the things that surround us and take advantage of them is an extraordinary experience.
Lots of these materials are waiting for us to discover them in Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey.
So, use them wisely.
5 FREEDOM OF CHOICE
With a world to discover in front of you and having a species to develop, your possibilities are endless.
You are what Darwin called, “The Natural Selection”.
It’s up to you what aspects to evolve.
What clan’s members are going to reproduce and how the inheritance of the mutation will be done.
In Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, your actions matter and they will affect the evolutionary process directly.
6 HOURS OF PLAYING
This adventure takes place 10,000,000 years ago.
So, which translates in a great amount of time that we have to enjoy the evolution of our clan.
Besides that, when they use the term, "Odyssey", they are not exaggerating:
You’re about to engage in a truly epic journey full of challenges.
That is going to make you appreciate every single step you take while moving forward through the game.
And, that will take you hours and hours of playing.
7 HUNTING IS FUN
As soon as you get the game mechanics and start developing weapons, you will find that killing other species is one of the most enjoyable parts of Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey.
After hours and hours of getting beat up by these pre-historical monsters, it’s an incredible sensation to start taking payback on them.
So, reunite some hominids of your clan, give them a bunch of spears and go out there to kill some giant anaconda, a few warthogs or the all-mighty black saber-toothed cat.
