Easy to understand.

It's difficult to collect materials when tribesman keep eating it all.




Get a blast from the past in this game that features cavemen in the prehistoric period. Many Years Ago is about the survivors of an ancient tribe that barely escaped after a volcano destroyed their entire home. What’s worse, when they find another home, it is also threatened by the eruption of another volcano.

You, the player, have the job of helping the tribe and the chief build new homes, find food, and advance their little civilization so that they can build a boat to escape before the next volcano erupts. It is up to you to solidify this tribe’s existence by birthing babies and seeking out new knowledge.

You accomplish this by finding the tools needed to perform tasks and leading the members to spots on the island like coconut trees and quarry rocks. All the supplies you gather is put in community supply huts which can be upgraded later on in the game.

All of the materials that you find are important for the tribe’s survival and advancement. The food is for feeding them, of course, and the tools are used to build new buildings like homes and stables for dinosaurs. With each new building, the tribe’s quality of life improves.
