Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is the new survival from Panache Digital Games, an indie studio headed by Patrice Désilets: the creative director of the first Assassin's Creed. The game in question is very particular since it will allow us to interpret primates that will have to survive in the various territories. Initially you will find yourself really confused, since the title will launch you into the most pristine nature with very few tips. In this guide, in fact, we will include the most useful tips to get you off to a good start Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey.
Tips to get you started
In this guide we will include what we believe to be the best actions to take both at the beginning and constantly in the game, as well as some tips that are not detailed and explained very well by the title itself.
Scan and smell everything around you - Ancestors: the Humankind Odyssey beginner's guide
Smell and Scan is the core of the title, since it will allow our primates to increase their intelligence. Yes, it can be a little boring, but it's a great way to intensify your neuronal experience and teach your clan new skills. In addition to this, it is very useful for realizing what resources are in the immediate vicinity. After scanning the area, look for any objects you've never seen (indicated by a "?") And grab them. Once in your hand you can investigate them, revealing the material and acquiring some neuronal experience points.
Transport Your Puppies Anywhere - Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey Beginner's Guide
Your clan's pups are the key to rapid evolution. The more children you have in the clan, the faster your clan will learn new skills. As you will have learned in the tutorial, you can carry the little ones on your back while doing the various activities. What the tutorial doesn't say is that if you constantly carry puppies with you, you will gain neuronal experience at a much faster rate. This is really dangerous for the puppies, especially if you take them away from the base, but it is essential to quickly increase your intelligence.
Move on two legs - Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, beginner's guide
In the early stages of the game, more precisely when you use intelligence, among the various actions you can perform there is "Get up". The game doesn't really explain exactly what the purpose of the action is, so it can be easily ignored, but standing upright when you use your intelligence allows primates to walk a few meters in an upright position, giving them the chance carry piles of resources. This way you can too move faster through waterways shallow once that skill is further developed.
Pay close attention to the sounds - Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, beginner's guide
Whether you have to dodge a fierce predator, or take care of a member of our clan, the key is the audio signals. There are numerous sounds that operate in most of the actions you will perform. For example, if you come across a snake on your adventures and it will try to attack, hold down the A button on the controller (X on PS4) and point the left stick in the direction you wish to dodge, releasing the "A" button when you hear the audio signal. The sooner you master the timing, the easier it will be to create, dodge and protect yourself from predators.
Gather Resources - Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, Beginner's Guide
Resources are key at Ancestors. The materials, such as: dry branches, granite and basalt, are very useful to progress in the title. The best way to make sure you always have enough is to collect and stockpile them at your clan's home base. Resources of the same type can be stacked, making them easily accessible and identifiable when needed. You can even raise entire piles of resources once the skill is unlocked from the neuronal enhancement tree.
