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!

Awesome game, the concept is fun, the art is really cute, and the replayability is perfect. 11/10 thinking of buying the real one now.

Thank you for the quick respond. Really enjoy the game, maybe i buy it in the future.

@MulleMeck I'm sure I can come up with something to help with that!

Would it be possible to add a counter showing the amount of wood in the Firepit, because when there are a lot of tokens in there it gets confusing really quick.

That's wonderful to hear. As much as I love seeing new stylistic takes, I really enjoy the original aesthetic you've crafted and would hate to have to mix and match components from different editions to get a full experience.

Hi Ice Maverick! The new Great Games version is only an aesthetic and component change, gameplay wise it is the same! That being said if new content does get released I will be doing everything I can to make sure my original version gets the new content back ported!
IceMaverick Apr 22 @ 7:41pm 
Does the remastered release of the game include any new gameplay content that's exclusive to the newer edition, or is it purely an aesthetic redesign?

If it does contain any new events, content, characters, etc. will we ever see a backport of that to the original aesthetic?

Will there be an option to buy or play it in other languages?
