Polyslash has just released their first-ever in-game teaser of Tribe: Primitive Builder. It's a brand new survival game that makes you an architect in primitive times. Your job is clear, don't let your tribe die, or you'll die with it:

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.

Tribe: Primitive Builder is currently being developed for PC, and it's about to be released later this year on Steam. The game already has a page on the store so you can add it to your wishlist:
