Tribe Primitive Builder: Your Tribe, Our Tribe

Tribe Primitive Builder gameplay is a bit hush hush while in development, but this could be the next city builder on your wishlist.

City builder games prove to be some of the most popular on PC, and Polyslash’s upcoming title Tribe Primitive Builder could be another of those worth adding to your wishlist.

The game wears multiple hats; the first is a survival one, the second, an architect as you have to help your tribe thrive in becoming a formidable civilisation, but at the same time, keep them alive as, y’know, society usually features people.

Not much is known about Tribe Primitive Builder at this stage, other than the following key features:

  • Explore – Become an architect in primitive times and help your tribe thrive and expand. As the voice of the elders, your job is to explore the island in search of everything that would help you and your tribe survive. Collect wood, stone, mud, and even leaves. Use the environment to your advantage or perish like many civilizations before you. Whatever you do, plan what to do next.
  • Construct – The island is your canvas. With the use of the resources you gather, you can construct buildings that provide shelter, food, and jobs for your tribe. Upgrade your techniques and use advanced materials to create more durable and larger buildings.
  • Earn a reputation – Follow the guidance of the elders. Complete tasks and earn the tribe’s trust or face its wrath. If you are to lead the tribe then they need to trust you. Make sure their needs are not forgotten, and they in return will help you with what they can.
  • Craft tools – As the architect, you are only as strong as the tools you use. Create your own set of tools to use and conquer the wilds with them. Hammers, shovels, pickaxes and others will help you construct buildings while exploration gear will help you reach parts of the isle that were inaccessible before.
  • Expand – Grow your village. You control how fast the tribe expands and you must take care of their needs. For instance, if you expand too fast you’ll find yourself starving.

Trailers can never be considered reliable as what the finished gameplay will be like – especially for cinematics, but the following is such a teaser, it feels a bit silly sharing:

Tribe Primitive Builder is currently in development for the PC and will be out later this year, but that shouldn’t stop you from adding to your wishlist for future updates, innit?
