Stone Age Survival - play as early man!
Set in the late mesolithic period, you are either a homo sapien (what we are) or a Neanderthal who is orphaned at a young age and must learn to survive on their own! This is based as much off reality as possible, very little fiction; despite researching, a few things have been difficult to find so I’m doing my best to make it as historically accurate as we know. There will be additions occasionally that give a more modern flair or touch an unknown subject about early man, but they are only there to simplify the writing/coding to the point I can do this without adding a co-author.
Please stop asking for a save file! I will not be adding saving at any point!
Whats currently done:
Startup scene - choose sex, name, species, & intro to family & their deaths
First Day choices - can eat, craft tools (basic & simple), hunt with spears & look for carcasses, & start of Nightfall
Most, if not all, crafts have been been added to files, even if not implemented
Gather plant food
Hunt with knife
Yes I am aware I have other games to work on, but a friend challenged me a few weeks ago & got me interested in learning about early man, heard i can write with ChoiceScript, & asked if I could do anything with this. Gives me a good motivation (not that I didn’t have it before though) to really work for the moment.
Updates may be sporadic, but I am interested to see how much this takes hold in my head right now.
& as a bonus: my kid saw me researching “big kitties” & rocks (he loves rocks) & wants to know what I’m doing now, so I’m seeing this as a good bonding experience which is super good for my mental health right now.
