Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is a third-person open world survival game from independent studio Panache Digital Games and published by Private Division. From Creative Director Patrice Désilets, experience the beauty and danger of Africa 10 million years ago as your hominid clan must Explore, Expand, and Evolve to survive over the course of 8 million years. Write your own unique story of human evolution and see if you can survive like our ancestors before us.
Ancestors: The Humankid Odyssey puts us in the shoes of the first primates who faced nature and were victorious. And, like them, the player will have to describe everything without any help in this original and different survival game.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is a great survival game with an extremely steep learning curve.
Ancestors is one of the most exciting games of the decade. Despite some frustrating elements, Ancestors is an incredible experience and a tour de force of game design.
We need to praise the effort to make something new and, in this case, the additions to add some QoL features. Ancestors is still flawed, but it’s also a game we can’t help but recommend to those interested in new experiences.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey on Xbox One is a game that I really admire; in fact it’s got me hooked. The gameplay itself doesn't hold your hand and is for the gamer who likes a challenge. Whilst that does at times mean things feel like a grind, leaving you to repeat the same thing quite a few times, in reality life is hard and the game reflects the brutal nature of this.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey presents us an intriguing survival paleoanthropological simulation, where we can tangibly live the evolutionary mechanics that brought the early primates to become us. This comes with a fair share of repetitiveness and frustration though, making the experience only advisable to the most patient gamers.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is an experimental indie game that through all its issues and idiosyncrasies, can be fun for anyone seeking a survival game with a difference.
