Developer Polyperfect has announced the launch of Polylithic in Early Access on Steam. Polylithic is a third-person crafting survival game set in the Paleolithic/Neolithic era with a dash of sci-fi plot.
In Polylithic, embark on a prehistoric adventure as the new leader of a tribe plagued by a mysterious disease. Explore your surroundings in search of food, resources, and hidden secrets. The incredibly colorful, low-poly world and uniquely atmospheric music will help immerse players in the adventure. Start slowly by gathering resources, crafting items, unlocking technology, discovering the world, and building bases to eventually grow your tribe and command the settlement.
Key Features of Polylithic:
• Gather, craft, and hunt – Your goal is to gather primary resources to provide the basic means to survive. Collecting various resources and advancing the tech tree lets you set your eyes on the big prize. From rabbits to the mammoths inhabiting the prehistoric wilderness, every animal provides a different challenge to overcome.
• Grow and manage your tribe – There is strength in numbers. Grow your tribe, take care of its needs, and keep your tribe members happy. You can then manage your people and give them tasks in return, leading to them getting better and eventually becoming elders of the tribe.
• Explore the wilderness – There are more than valuable resources in the forests, snow-covered hills, and rivers. Discover the remnants of past tribes and take inspiration to build your own monuments to their memory.
• Embark on a journey through two different eras – You will be taken through two historical ages, each with its own specific core gameplay and flavor. The hunters and gatherers are a small migrating group trying to survive. Advance enough through the tech tree to unlock the requirements to settle down permanently as farmers.
Polylithic has released on Steam Early Access for $14.99.
