tree branches in the jungle to stalking prey across the golden savannah
grasslands. Decide what attributes to learn and hone in order to pass down
knowledge to future generations, from crafting tools to enhancing evasive
tactics against predators. Just like real life, make sure to eat, drink, and
sleep to stay alive and have the energy to face any danger that may come your
clan and find strength in numbers as you progress through critical evolutionary
stages of human evolution. Your choices will write your clan’s story and
determine if you can survive your evolution.

Neogene Africa starting 10 million years ago at the dawn of humankind. From the
tops of tree canopies overlooking lush jungles to the golden grasslands of the
savannah, traverse a beautiful yet unforgiving landscape. For every
breath-taking view, beware of the weather, predators, and other dangers that
threaten your survival.
Expand Your Territory and Grow Your Clan: Increase your chances of
survival by uniting new members of your species and giving birth to future
generations. Control different clan members, form bonds to create families, and
work together to intimidate predators during expeditions. Conquer fear as you
explore unknown locations in order to expand your territory.
Evolve Through Multiple Generations: See the physical and intellectual evolution of the
first hominids as you explore, learn, and survive. Spanning from 10 million to
two million years ago, play as one of the first hominids and evolve over the
course of millions of years during key stages in human evolution. Make crucial
discoveries and hone physical abilities that will be passed down to future
generations such as Ardipithecus ramidus and Australopithecus.
Choose How You Survive: Evolution was not written in stone. Your decisions

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
