Über das Spiel

What Ancients Begat is a complete (~15 hour) game of family generations surviving the rise of western civilization. Survival is the ultimate goal. The sub-goals, you choose, build their story.


Experience an abstract telling of the lives of our earliest recorded ancestors. Part board game, part machine, part nod to computer games of yore, it begins with a simple mechanic. Spend tokens to traverse the wheel of life. Earn tokens by tempting the jaws of death. Then, like layers upon a pearl, game play expands, introducing fresh tactics and strategies which, turn by turn, drive a sophisticated, emergent narrative. How you play defines the lives of one family's generations through the changing ages.


An enormous tableau of ancient western culture awaits your exploration:


  • Core Mechanic - Back and forth tactics, across four social boundaries, to win legend points.
  • Family Strategy - Romance. Raise children. Rite of Passage.
  • Family Drama - Tales in the life. Sibling rivalry. Failed branches. Graveyard of ancestry.
  • Grand Legends - Earned over generations, they strengthen your family: Discoveries and Invention. Social Advancement. Heroics.
  • Ruling Games - City Administration. Warring Kingdoms. Imperial Senate.
  • The Challenges of an Age - Special for each social level. Survive and overcome, to enter a new age.

Schneller zugänglich als zuerst gedacht, bin ich nach 3h spielen immernoch hin und weg. Eine sehr gute Abwechslung einer quasi Aufbau-Simulation im Automatenformat.

This is such a lovely little game!

I've never really played anything like it.... "Stargate" for the first GameBoy comes to mind ;)

This game is extremely simple and very clever at the same time.

The Look of an old coin-fueled cought my attention, but what I really won me over for this game
was the generated story. It may be only fresh and interesting in the first few playthroughs (sadly it gets repetitive pretty fast), but though its just pieces of text popping up one after another, it still made me feel and even care for these characters I was playing.

Each death by sickness really meant something. Sometiimes even letting the parents perish away for the children to have a better start in the next generation.

This game may not be for anybody and I may never have played it if I hadn't got it in a bundle, but if you like the trailer you should maybe give it a try too ;)

I liked it very much, besides the endings of each era. There seems only to be one right path, but I might be wrong there.

I don't recommend this game. It's just way to repetitive and gets boring fast.

Life's all about the right and wrong choices that have been made, are made and will be made. Not only in your own life but choices made in past generations can even trouble the life of your fututre siblings.
A game you never have played before, a new kind of strategic thinking. Don't take life and luck in life for granted because this can change in an instance when you make 'that' decision in life.
