ABOUT THIS GAME

Take control of a settlement of the first modern humans, guide them through the ages in their struggle for survival.

Dawn of Man is a survival/city-builder from the creators of Planetbase.

The game starts in the Stone Age, and takes you up to the Iron Age, spanning more than 10,000 years of human prehistory.

You will have to get your people to survive, expand and evolve, just like our ancestors, facing the challenges that the environment will throw at you.


Hunt

Animals were a vital source of food and resources for ancient humans. Use their meat to feed your people and their skin and bones to make clothing and craft the tools you will need to stay alive. Confront Mammoths, Woolly Rhinos, Ancient Bison, Megaloceros, Cave Lions and other species that roamed the earth at the time.

Gather

Collect a variety resources from the environment: fruit, berries, water, wood, flint, stone, ores. Use them to prepare food, to make tools and to build structures in your settlement.

Plan for harsh times

Fish is more abundant in spring, berries and fruit can be collected in summer and animals are easier to come by when it's warm. When winter comes, make sure to have enough non-perishable food and warm clothing in order to survive.

Expand and fortify your settlement

Build more homes and facilities for your people, in order to expand your population. Construct fortifications and craft weapons, so you are ready for when the inevitable conflict comes.

Research Technologies

Each new discovery will make it easier for your settlement to be able to support larger populations, but will also bring new challenges: increased food demand, morale issues and more frequent raider attacks.

Build Megalithic Structures

Our ancestors were capable of incredible engineering feats: mine massive rocks from the environment, transport them using sledges and construct colossal stone structures.

Control Nature

Unlock farming technologies to grow your own vegetables, so you can feed large amounts of people. Domesticate animals to produce food, resources and provide increased muscle power.

The developer who made this also made one set in the future, that is based on colonizing planets. Looks pretty interesting!

I purchased Planet Base the other day, and started a colony. It is a fun game, and pretty challenging. I had to reload from a previous save point because my colony's population grew too rapidly for the amount of resources they were able to produce. Which resulted in terrible food shortages that led to some fatalities. The game is all about balancing your resources, as you expand. As well as providing amenities for the humans in the base to feel comfortable. All in all, I really like it, and it makes me look foward to Dawn of Man.

Here are some pictures from a settlement I built. I think it is a very fun, and interesting game. I started off with a small group of hunter-gatherers, and it gradually grew overtime through people migrating to my settlement, and eventually a sustainable population being born. There were some situations where my population would rise and fall due to a variety of factors. Such as famine, disease, and invasions. There was also the domesticated animal population to manage as well. I'd like to see more content come out for this game in the future.

I would like to see them do something with ceremonial burial. I think it could be an interesting game mechanic.
