Dive into Prehistoric Survival with The Ancients: Coming Soon to Early Access!

Get ready to embark on an epic journey through the Ice Age with “The Ancients,” an innovative turn-based survival strategy game. Developed by the indie studio Gorilla Softworks from Turkey and published by Boston-based Camlann Games, “The Ancients” will be available in Early Access starting June 5th on Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG.

A Unique Twist on Prehistoric Survival
“The Ancients” reimagines the core mechanics of real-time survival games like “Dawn of Man,” transforming them into a compelling turn-based experience. Players will explore deep skill trees, encounter diverse wildlife, and navigate authentic Ice Age biomes. The game’s challenging migration routes will continuously test your strategic survival skills.

About The Ancients
In “The Ancients,” you lead a prehistoric hunter-gatherer tribe through the harsh realities of the last Ice Age. Your goal is to survive the elements, hunt fierce animals, migrate across continents, advance technology, make crucial social and political decisions, and ultimately evolve your civilization. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Survival: Navigate through various biomes, adapting to different climates, weather, and seasons. Forage for food and hunt historically accurate animals—or become their prey.
  • Tribal Life: Manage one or more clans within your tribe. Monitor their happiness based on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.
  • Technological Advancement: Explore an expansive tech tree of primitive technology and craft new tools and weapons tailored to your environment.
  • Society: Make decisions that shape your tribe’s cultural, political, spiritual, and moral identity.
  • Migration: Strategize your tribe’s movements across the globe, thriving in new biomes and climates.
