Don't Let It Die


Lightning strikes a nearby tree. Fire! Your group of Neanderthals must now endure Mother Nature and work together to keep the fire going long enough to learn its mysterious powers and destructive capabilities. You have 14 days to uncover its secrets before a massive flood drowns the valley and extinguishes humanity’s one chance at becoming the apex predator and escaping extinction.

"Don't Let It Die" is a cooperative survival game based on early humanity's struggles to cement their place at the top of the food chain. You will gather resources & food, fight deadly predators, and learn the mysteries of fire. Your task is a difficult one, but no matter what happens, remember: Don't Let It Die!

Designed from the ground up to offer a re-playable, interactive, strategic cooperative experience for 1-4 players. The key to victory lies in your group's ability to adapt to the ever-present and always changing threats of prehistoric life. Should you focus on hunting and foraging to feed your starving tribe? Or should you be more concerned with supplying the dwindling fire with more wood? Perhaps constructing a weapon or tool might ease the stress of gathering resources...

These choices and more await you in what will surely be the ultimate test of survival.


Now includes the brand new full expansion, Hindrance!

New UI update is out! This is mainly a behind the scenes code change, but now each player owns their own UI panel, so scaling the UI only affects your screen now instead of everyone's. I also added some tool-tip polish.

can you add Russian language?

Big scripting update just dropped! I added a new UI element that tracks your current resource counts for the group! They don't show unless you have at least 1 of the resources, this is too maximize visibility during the game.

Let me know if you run into any bugs, I tested tons of cases, but with the code changes here. some bugs might have slipped through! Thanks for playing everyone! Also, let me know of any other Quality of life additions you'd like added to the game!

New UI Sizing slider has been added to the game's UI! Use it to increase or decrease the size of all custom UI components! Small resolution players rejoice!

Using the HUD, is there a way to make the buttons bigger, since some of my players has trouble recognizing which button does what?

@thegamefreak2000, Use the buttons to draw cards, if you draw and flip a card yourself with a low hold height there's chance it could trigger twice instead of the normal once. Otherwise, make sure you flip the card away from the discard zone before placing it.

Hi, When i turn around a resource card, for example wood. And there is a 1 on it, it gives me 2 wood? I know it said one, twice. however when i see videos online they only take one, and the rule book says: 'take the indicated amount of resources'. How can I make it so it only gives me 1 and not dubble?

Hello @Ryoomi, you may not trade for cooked resources, they must be the raw resource (Rule book clarification for this is coming this weekend)
Ryoomi Mar 25 @ 9:52pm 
Hello! Cool game.
Can you trade for cooked food?
3 berries for one cooked meat, for example?
