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!

@RAM, It does NOT! If you check the Death rules section, it lets you know there that eating cooked meat to revive a character overrides any eating restrictions they may have.

quick question, i'm not finding it in the FAQ, but River can only eat Berries, so does that void her from being fed to be revived?

@RainingLeviathan Did you pick a color and sit in it? Each player seat has it's own UI that can be moved around and scaled, so it doesn't show any buttons if you haven't sat in a colored seat yet.

Just subbed to this today and none of the UI buttons are showing up regardless of if I toggle Mod Caching
