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!

Hello, I wanted to ask if there are plans to translate it into other languages

@badtiming220, Yes! They still gain MaxStamina when Discoveries are unlocked and they are Incapacitated and return at the end of the Morning Phase with 3 Health and their full Max Stamina refreshed!

If a character dies and respawn them, do they get their max stamina back?

When items are stacked (in stacks of 2), pressing ALT to view a zoomed image doesn't work (it shows the flip-side upside down); however, when the item is not stacked, it works.

@WiggleMyToes It does,There is a known issue if you're trying to Save a game and then Load it back up. It will reset back to Day 1 since the scripts state does not stay saved after loading the game back up sadly. If this isn't the case let me know and I'll look into it more.

Hi! The "automate" for the morning phase does not remove the corresponding number of wood for the day.

@zelliger Yes, this is correct, you have to pick a color as each seat's UI is unique to its seat. This let's you scale and move the UI around for each player, but you have to be sat at the a color to be considered a player at the table and not a spectator.

For those missing the UI buttons. I just figured out that if you start the game as a host of a multiplayer game, you won't have the UI buttons. However, once you pick a color (other than the default white), they will appear. It seems the UI appears only after you pick a color.

Thank you for the quick response! Love the game!
