How did our ancestors live a million years ago? How was the landscape that they perceived? Were they similar to our species? These questions are the starting point of Ancestors: Stories of Atapuerca
, a video game for iOS and Android devices where the player leads a human group within the region of Atapuerca.
watch the release trailer here:
integrates the most recent archaeological findings of 2 species (Homo Antecessor and Homo Neanderthal) to portrait a scientifically accurate vision of Prehistory. The game plays as a simulation where you take the role of the leader of a human group and organise their activities. Hunt animals, gather resources, make tool and develop innovations: you will have to plan the tasks to achieve your goals while avoiding running out of food.
This is a public outreach project on scientific dissemination and for this reason it is freely available for ios and android devices:
