How about you finish your current game?

Im a fan of your work :)
I love planetbase (tho i STILL think the inventory numbers should reflect available quantities, not total, it would have saved you a lot of negative reviews from people thinking the AI is defective haha), So im looking forward to see what your new game is about.

Cant wait. It will probably be an insta buy for me since planetbase was so good.

Trailer looks promising. :-)
Added game to my wishlist. :-)
Oh dear. Another stone-age survival / crafting game ? Well, it's Madruga Works. That's a publisher which might figure out how to make this kind of game something other than a tedious grind. Good luck with it.

It actually looks more like a clone of this game, like they were all in a meeting looking for ideas for games.

"Hrm, how can we improve PlanetBase?"
"How about we make a whole new game?"
"What? No we're trying to f-"
"It'll be the same game, but all the domes are instead tents."
"Genius."

Dawn of Man is definitely a spiritual successor to Planetbase, but the gameplay has steered quite a bit at this point. We are coding the game from scratch.

Not sure how to describe or compare it with any other existing games, as it is a bit of a blend of City-Builder/Survival with RTS elements.

This is a rough comparison between the two:

Similarities
  • You control a bunch of people and have to keep them alive.
  • You build and expand a settlement/colony.

New stuff
  • There is a large tech tree to research.
  • You can give direct orders to people if you want to (you can still macromanage the whole thing).
  • Interacting with the environment is a big part of the game: You have to hunt, domesticate or defend against animals and find resources to mine.
  • There is quite a bit of combat in the game, you can arm your people, build fortifications and give commands RTS style.
  • The game is quite a bit longer and gameplay morphs as you advance in the game: Controlling a band of Paleolithic hunter-gatherers is quite different than managing a town of Bronze-Age farmer-warriors.

(And BTW we are still planing to do some more updates to Planetbase as soon as we have some time, there are a couple of things we want to improve)

SystemDC plz stop copy/pasting large posts, this is against the rules, you are free to voice your opinion as long as you type it with your own keyboard.

What do you mean? I did type it -_-

It looks quite good. I'm glad to see that it has the Madruga Works charm :-)
