Description

Tribal & Error is a game about language, without language. You are a robot sent back to observe the ancient times, but the ice age is coming and in order to save humanity you need to learn their language first. Observe, repeat and master the cavemen tongue! As the player, you observe and copy symbols of the Cavemen. Repeat the symbols to the Cavemen in order to figure out their meaning. Translation can be added by your own interpretation and can be used to instruct the Cavemen to teach them new skills. Embark on a relaxing but challenging quest, enjoy the story and bond with those pre-hysterical Cavemen!

History

Back in 2009 the groundwork for Tribal and Error was lain. Born from a science fiction fascination, specifically coming from the question If you (the player) would play as a machine and became intelligent through learning how would that work? Jump to 2014 Oskar Moleman, joined with Tim Haerkens and Joel Sjouke to build this concept that would become the ambitious game called Tribal and Error

Features

  • Handcrafted environments and Caveman animations.
  • No language barrier: This game can be played by anyone in the world!
