Take control of a settlement of the first modern humans, guide them through the ages in their struggle for survival. Dawn of Man is a survival/city-builder from the creators of Planetbase. The game starts in the Stone Age, and takes you up to the Iron Age, spanning more than 10,000 years of human prehistory. You will have to get your people to survive, expand and evolve, just like our ancestors, facing the challenges that the environment will throw at you. Hunt Animals were a vital source of food and resources for ancient humans. Use their meat to feed your people and their skin and bones to make clothing and craft the tools you will need to stay alive. Confront Mammoths, Woolly Rhinos, Ancient Bison, Megaloceros, Cave Lions and other species that roamed the Earth at the time.
Gather Collect a variety resources from the environment: fruit, berries, water, wood, flint, stone, ores. Use them to prepare food, to make tools and to build structures in your settlement. Plan for harsh times Fish is more abundant in spring, berries and fruit can be collected in summer and animals are easier to come by when it’s warm. When winter comes, make sure to have enough non-perishable food and warm clothing in order to survive. Expand and fortify your settlement Build more homes and facilities for your people, in order to expand your population. Construct fortifications and craft weapons, so you are ready for when the inevitable conflict comes. Research Technologies Each new discovery will make it easier for your settlement to be able to support larger populations, but will also bring new challenges: increased food demand, morale issues and more frequent raider attacks. Build Megalithic Structures Our ancestors were capable of incredible engineering feats: mine massive rocks from the environment, transport them using sledges and construct colossal stone structures. Control Nature Unlock farming technologies to grow your own vegetables, so you can feed large amounts of people. Domesticate animals to produce food, resources and provide increased muscle power.

It’s a good game, good tutorial, great price. Getting started is quick and easy, and fun to watch your community grow. The UI works but don’t tell you all you need to know. For example, the top right box tells you what you have, but what the top left means. It’s easy not to micromanage but how do you tell a resource is gone, if anyone is doing nothing. Just could use better info. And how do you read all those charts. The experience points are good and used to unlock more tech, more buildings and tools, but you got to keep a eye on those points. Hidden cool tools like tons of help files but still no UI explanation. But select anything in game, ie: People, buildings, animals then move with D pad to camera icon and watch in cinema mode. Fun to assign hunt party on mamoth, then watch in camera view. Like this type of game? Then worth it… But also a little shallow at times. You get what you pay for, remember that.
Recommend Hard mode for a real challenge. Controls are console friendly, runs smooth, easy on the eyes, has seasons, weather, and is emmersive. I can see myself playing this for 200 plus hours. 80 people 100 animals all on screen along with 40 or so wild animals and runs smooth on Xbox 1 X. Currently in Bronze age. Thats not the population Cap
settlement builders are fun and just dont get enough of them on console. You have to decide where to send your clan… I.e. Fishing,hunting,stick gather,stone gather,flint and wild plants. Then you get to research new building types and other goodies. Pick out and rotate building as desired then place freely within your territory. The places you can build are decided by locations on a map, so its not open world just key areas from map. I wish it had more room to work and play with but it is what it is. If Devs continue to update and release some DLC this could be a great game.
