A downloadable game for Windows

A colony simulation and survival game with some rts and rpg elements and hopefully some interesting and fun experimental mechanics.   

The game will loosely reference some historical elements such as real tribe names but is meant to take place in its own world.


This demo is an early prototype so MANY things don't work but it will give you an idea of the gameplay and the world.   Thank you for your patience :-)
