What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The potential for Sapiens is huge, and there is the potential for many years further development, but the game is already playable and fun. Before adding all the nice-to have later-game content and features, it makes sense to get the game out there and start getting the community involved, providing feedback, and building mods.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Sapiens may be in early access for a couple of years or more. There is a lot of potential, so it makes sense to take the time to get it right.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will focus more on later game content, as well as the addition of new mechanics, refinement of the existing experience, and progressing further into future technologies.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Sapiens is a playable, fairly stable and enjoyable experience, and focuses on getting the core gameplay and mechanics right. There has been a lot of effort put into bug fixing, UI design, and performance. What's lacking at the moment is later game content, and there is some refinement to go for some of the more minor things like animations and sound effects.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price is likely to rise as the game gets more refined with more content after the Early Access release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Sapiens has a very flexible modding interface using Lua, so it will be great working with the community to help modders create a lot of really great mods. The game supports multiplayer too, so it will be great to see some active servers start to evolve. And of course all feedback is very much appreciated, and will help the game to become the best it can be.”

About This Game

Evolve your primitive hunter gatherers through thousands of years of technological advancement. Feed, protect and grow your tribe, build towns and industry, and advance through the primitive ages in this first person civilization builder for PC. Play with your friends in co-operative or competitive multiplayer, all on a procedurally generated planet larger than Earth.

  • Walk the paths beside your people, as you lead from down amongst them.
  • Find new resources and send your sapiens to investigate, leading to new breakthroughs which unlock new things to build and craft.
  • Instruct individual sapiens to focus on specific tasks, and watch as they learn new skills, making them more valuable to your tribe.
  • Build shelters, both to keep your sapiens happy, and to preserve food and resources. Every wall, roof, seat or fireplace can be placed individually. Every tree, log, plank or rock can be removed or placed, and the terrain can be dug, mined or filled to shape the world the way you want.
  • Send sapiens over long distances and establish camps to gather far away resources. Create transportation networks to bring those resources back to your base for processing or storage. Send a group to explore over great distances, or conduct a hunting mission. Take down a mammoth to feed and clothe your tribe for months, but know that you may lose some sapiens trying.

Development on Sapiens is progressing nicely, and its currently in closed alpha. There will be a public Early Access release in early 2022.
