Ancestors The Humankind Experience

My entire family is excited about the announcement of this game:

Here's the E3 promo:

This game is from Panache Digital, and if I now correctly understand it, this is a studio with some of the creators of Assassin's Creed   (my mistake for thinking it was an Ubisoft studio). My comments remain....Ubisoft has been great at leveraging low-key SF and fantasy elements in their Assassin's Creed series for years, so it is nice to see Panache Digital experiment with more in this style, by once again demonstrating that you can make history (and science) interesting enough for video games.

Anyway, a game which takes the evolution of hominids into humankind and makes it a 3PS adventure game sounds amazing, I hope they do it well.


  1. Hey Nicholas,

    I work for Panache Digital Game, which develops Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey. I leave you this comment to avoid the confusion: Ubisoft is not involved in the development of the game. We are an indie studio based in Montreal with 35 people, here's our website for more informations:
