Dawn of Man Review
Dawn of Man is a survival/city-builder from the creators of Planetbase. Take control of a settlement of the first modern humans, guide them through the ages in their struggle for survival. Dawn of Man sees you develop a community from a small bunch of hunter-gatherers beginning in the Paleolithic era through 10,000 years of human history until you reach the Iron age and if I am honest, it’s not enough. It's very detailed with an extensive crafting, gathering, and hunting system, which is what I was after. Also, the primal view for hunting is kind of awesome. The music in game is brilliant, in keeping with the theme and inspiring. For example the change when raiders come gets your heart racing which makes the calm and ordinary sounds of your village and its villagers going about their daily business, even more contrasting. This game is a definite pickup if you love prehistory, city builders or survival games. Great job on this Madruga works, hope to see some great additions and support for this game. from you guys! Overall, Dawn of Man is a well-developed survival city-builder with the necessary tools to keep you invested and coming back for more. If you want to spend time building and developing your own civilization through the ages, don’t hesitate to give Dawn of Man a try.
