About Neolithic Dawn
Embark on a Mesolithic Odyssey: Finding Your Ancestral Homeland
Imagine a world where the summer season reveals a hidden passage to the land your ancestors once called home. Once you step into this ancient realm, there's no turning back to your village except for a brief window during the next summer season. The journey ahead is long and treacherous, and you'll be carving out a path for future generations. Some quests are simply too monumental to complete in a single lifetime.
Die to Progress: Multi-Generational Permadeath with Persistent Time
Neolithic Dawn isn't just another VR game; it's a unique experience featuring a groundbreaking gameplay system known as "multi-generational permadeath with persistent time." In the story mode, death is not just an event; it's a permanent and world-changing occurrence. You'll leave your partner and child in your village, embarking on a quest to discover your ancestral homeland.
When your avatar meets its end, you'll return as the next-of-kin many years later, continuing the journey in a world that has aged with time. Rediscover your old tools, buildings, rafts, and paths, ensuring future generations can follow in your footsteps.
Climb Anywhere: Reach New Heights in Exploration
In Neolithic Dawn, the world is your playground. Grapple and climb anything you can see. Scale mountainsides, ascend trees to see beyond the forest – the choice is yours. The freedom to explore knows no bounds.
Craft By Hand: Unleash Your Creativity in Survival
Survival in Neolithic Dawn is limited only by your resourcefulness. Find materials, combine objects, and craft your tools. Every decision you make shapes your destiny, and every creation contributes to your saga.
Befriend Your Foes: Forge Alliances with the Wild
Journeying alone is not an option. Tame wild animals to accompany you on your odyssey or use their resources to survive. Your bond with the untamed world around you is key to unlocking the secrets of your ancestral homeland.
