About This Game

Set in a dark Lovecraftian Stone Age, The Tribe Must Survive is a strategy survival game about growing and protecting your Tribe from lurking dangers. By day, Tribe members work to provide for their community. At night, the faint glow of the campfire becomes your sole defense against what lurks in the dark. Manage Wood, Food and other resources to keep the Tribe going.

Various global disasters will test your Tribe, as internal factions will challenge its cohesion from within. What kind of leader will you become to help the Tribe survive?

LEAD YOUR TRIBE


Each Tribe member's behavior is dynamic, influenced by their unique traits and needs. You can guide them through work assignments, resource management, and decisions on building and technology upgrades. Ease Fear levels, organize rituals, and make key choices to help your Tribe persevere against upcoming disasters.

INTO THE OUTER WORLD


Resources near the campfire are limited. Launch Journeys into the Outer World for vital supplies. Successful ventures allow you to establish new outposts and trade routes. Can you afford to take the risk of uncertain expeditions? Or will you do nothing and risk stagnation? Navigate a number of decisions of risk vs reward, and short term vs long term benefits.

THROUGH THE DARKNESS


Your choices shape the Tribe's opinions in many different ways, leading to emerging Factions and potential Inner Conflicts. Such events can significantly alter your playthrough. Be mindful of spiritual and philosophical needs, maintain cohesion and safeguard against internal threats.

LIVE TO TELL ENDLESS TALES


Each playthrough presents new challenges and opportunities, like procedurally generated maps and a unique mix of Events and Perks. Complete goals to unlock additional perks that can help in your next playthrough. When you feel up to it, set yourself a new Challenge Level to overcome. Win or lose, there is always something to work towards and learn, bringing you closer to the next breakthrough. Whatever it takes... The Tribe Must Survive!
