Release trailer


Take control of a settlement of the first modern humans, guide them through the ages in their struggle for survival.

Dawn of Man is a survival/city-builder from the creators of Planetbase.

The game starts in the Stone Age, and takes you up to the Iron Age, spanning more than 10,000 years of human prehistory.

You will have to get your people to survive, expand and evolve, just like our ancestors, facing the challenges that the environment will throw at you.

Animals were a vital source of food and resources for ancient humans. Use their meat to feed your people and their skin and bones to make clothing and craft the tools you will need to stay alive. Confront Mammoths, Wholly Rhinos, Ancient Bison, Megaloceros, Cave Lions and other species that roamed the earth at the time.

Collect a variety resources from the environment, fruit, berries, water, wood, flint, stone, ores. Use them to prepare food, to make tools and to build structures in your settlement.

Plan for harsh times
Fish is more abundant in spring, berries and fruit can be collected in summer and animals are easier to come by when it's warm. When winter comes, make sure to have enough non-perishable food and warm clothing in order to survive.

Expand and fortify your settlement
Build more homes and facilities for your people, in order to expand your population. Construct fortifications and craft weapons, so you are ready for when the inevitable conflict comes.

Research Technologies
Each new discovery will make it easier for your settlement to be able to support larger populations, but will also bring new challenges: increased food demand, morale issues and more frequent raider attacks.

Build Megalithic Structures
Our ancestors were capable of incredible engineering feats: mine massive rocks from the environment, transport them using sledges and construct huge stone structures.

Control Nature
Unlock farming technologies to grow your own vegetables, so you can feed large amounts of people. Domesticate animals to produce food, resources and provide increased muscle power.

March 1st, 2019

Is Dawn of Man going to be Early Access?
No, we will release a full game.

Is there going to be a beta for the game?
Beta is now closed.
Thank you everyone for participating!

We now have a very large number of applications, we will keep on distributing keys among those who applied until the release date.

Are you going to keep working of the game after release?
Yes, for a while, expect the same level of support as with Planetbase.

What time period is the game set in?
The game starts about 12,000 years ago, in the Stone Age, and ends at the end of the Iron Age, about 2,000 years ago.

Is there combat in the game
Yes, it is not the main mechanic, but you really will need to fortify your town and defend against raiders (or animals).

Can I micromanage people
Yes you can you can move them around and give them commands, but the game is still fully playable at the macro level (no tedious forced micro tasks).

What is the end game like?
We will have two types of scenarios:
a) Freeplay senarios, where you play the whole game unlocking the different milestones.
b) Custom scenarios, where you have to achieve a particular goal.

Is there gona be any co-op? or multiplayer?
Not in our plans, Dawn of Man will be single player only.

Can you drive a species extinct by hunting them?
No. Every spring new animals will migrate back to the map. Some species will however will go extinct when you reach certain eras, and new ones will appear.
