Panache Digital Games has done something incredible with Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey. They’ve created a survival game based on the theory of human evolution. In Ancestors, you will start as the Missing Link, part of the last piece in truly understanding how we humans evolved into what we are today. From there, you will progress through the different stages in the homo sapien line.
One remarkable thing about the game is that it really doesn’t tell you much of anything about how to play. This a cool way to simulate a lack of knowledge and the need for experimentation to survive. It can sure make things difficult when playing, though. Lucky for you, we’ve compiled plenty of guides for features you’ll want to understand in the game.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey guides
How to mate and birth offsprings – Having enough new babies to sustain your clan’s numbers is a vital piece of Ancestors. You might not be very familiar with how to do it when you start, but eventually, you’ll have done it so much that you could probably go through the steps blindfolded. Regardless, this guide is a great place to start.
Unlocking new skills – The process of evolution comes with some really great benefits. From learning how to walk on two legs to defending yourself against predators, Ancestors has a ton of skills to learn. Learning these systems will lead your lineage towards a prosperous future.
New generations and evolution – Can’t have a game about evolution without… well… evolution. Advancing generations and going through an evolution will yield a ton of benefits such as genetic mutations and new hominids. Make sure you understand how to take advantage of these features!
