About This Game

"Don't Let It Die" smoothly transitions from board game to the digital world, offering a dramatic solo experience with strategic depth. It combines tribe building, resource management and adaptability in a compact, engaging, replayable experience.

The adventure begins with a momentous event: a lightning strike igniting a lone tree, bestowing your tribe with the gift of fire. This monumental discovery becomes the cornerstone of your survival. Immerse yourself in a prehistoric world where your tribe's fate hangs in the balance, faced with the relentless threats of a bygone era.

Hunger, predators, and the unforgiving elements are formidable foes, but the battle to keep the flame alive against all odds adds a vital layer to your strategic considerations. Will you prioritize gathering food, fueling the ever hungry flame, or crafting vital tools and weapons? Each decision could mean the difference between the prosperity and the extinction of your tribe.
