Welcome, fellow strategists and city builders, to a world where your every command is met with reluctance and defiance. Imagine, if you will, a twisted realm where survival is paramount, resources are scarce, and the will of your people cannot be easily bent to your whims. Such is the universe of The Tribe Must Survive, a survival-driven strategy roguelike that defies convention and challenges you to navigate the treacherous path of leadership.
Published by none other than Starbreeze, the masterminds behind Payday 3, and developed by the talented Walking Tree Games, this game takes you on a harrowing journey through a Lovecraftian version of the Stone Age. Food and warmth are precious commodities, and venturing into the darkness is a perilous gamble. Your mission? To protect your tribe, establish a harmonious society, and guide them towards survival. But be warned, my friends, for the path ahead is fraught with challenges.
Your tribe, though resilient, possesses a will of its own. These individuals have lives, desires, and the audacity to make their own decisions. Gone are the days of commanding them like obedient automatons. Instead, you must learn the art of influence. Construct buildings that shape their behavior, orchestrate religious ceremonies and rituals that guide their actions. You, dear player, are not merely a benevolent dictator, but an unseen deity with subtle and mysterious powers.
Yet, as if the stubbornness of your citizens wasn't enough, another obstacle looms before you. The Tribe Must Survive is divided into acts, each culminating in a potential game-ending disaster. Your duty is to prepare your tribe for the inevitable calamities that await. Stockpile food, gather ample amounts of wood, fortify your defenses. The capricious malevolence of fate lurks around every corner, ready to wash away your aspirations if you dare to remain unprepared. Every tribe consists of unique individuals with varied skills, strengths, and needs, guaranteeing that no two playthroughs are alike. The depth of your knowledge is directly proportional to the bitterness of your failures.
But fear not, for a glimmer of hope shines amidst the darkness. From Monday, February 5 to Monday, February 12, you shall have the opportunity to embark on a perilous adventure through three acts of The Tribe Must Survive. A demo, created exclusively for Steam Next Fest, awaits your brave souls. It serves as the perfect teaser, tantalizing your senses before the game's official early access release on Thursday, February 22. If you seek a challenging strategy game with a twist, The Tribe Must Survive may prove to be your salvation.
