Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is a third-person episodic adventure with elements of survival. The title is the debut of Panache Digital Games, headed by Patrice Désilets - former employee of companies such as Ubisoft and THQ and co-founder of the first three installments of the Assassin's Creed series and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
Humanity has found itself in such a historical moment that it is only a step away from the next stage of evolution, or ... the total annihilation. The aim of the game is to show the most important historical moments in the history of mankind with a truly documentary flair. In subsequent episodes of Ancestors we will experience such events as the creation of the first tools, the agro-cultural revolution, the collapse of the Roman Empire, the first flight by plane of the Wright brothers, the journey of man to the moon or the discovery of human DNA.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is about exploring the game world (inspired by Africa from the so-called Neogen - the younger period of the Cenozoic era), finding and using objects (in the game you will find extensive survival elements), developing your clan (by increasing its number and working for the common good), as well as gradual.... evolution. We start the game in the form of a monkey, to change into a human being and gain control over more than one character as time goes by - as well as subsequent breakthrough discoveries. The player decides which attributes of the heroes he wants to develop, which has an influence on the formation of future generations.
In Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey we can only play alone.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey has a nice three-dimensional graphic design. The game's diverse and detailed environment is striking, although there is nothing to blame for the models of characters and animals moving around it.
