[FOR IMMEDIATE RELASE] San Diego, CA February 23, 2021—Publisher, Crytivo alongside the development team, Soda Den are excited to announce the release of their kickstarter trailer featuring never-before-seen footage of Roots of Pacha, a life-simulator set in the stone age.

What the Roots of Pacha Team calls the “Festival of Kickstarter” starts today with the launch of their brand new trailer and their Kickstarter campaign. The team has been revealing new animals, NPCs, and datable Clan members in the lead-up to the event.

“It was only fitting that we turned Kickstarter into a festival,” says Timo, one of the brothers behind Soda Den. “In Roots of Pacha the Clan depends on the community and each person's contributions, and that's exactly what Kickstarter is all about.”

Roots of Pacha is a co-op farming and life simulation game set in the stone age. Help your once nomadic clan settle in a promised and fertile land. By connecting with nature you’ll develop Ideas to evolve, enrich your culture, relationships, and discover the mysteries of Pacha, mother nature.

Important Features, that appear in the closed Alpha

  • Evolve the clan with “Ideas” like irrigation and animal taming.
  • Farm and find wild seeds that can be domesticated.
  • Befriend and taime wild animals with your favorite markings.
  • Fish with minigames that challenge your steady hand.  
  • Bond with NPCs by giving gifts or sharing a dance.
  • Customize your character with the latest stone age fashion.
  • Ride ostriches, guanacos, boars, and more, eventually creating a riding league.
  • Build your home and design tapestries and pottery
  • Construct buildings and expand your village. 
  • Playable alone but developed with Co-Op in mind, including cut scenes.
  • Mine in the depths of the world to find precious resources. 
  • Solve the mysteries of Pacha and her totems.

Important Future Features
  • You can pet a baby mammoth and other animals.
  • Fill your kitchen with prehistoric appliances and utensils.
