What if I told you there is a way you could learn how to communicate with Cavemen?
What if you could teach them new skills and watch them do everything you say?
What if there was a game that did just that!?
“The core mechanic isn’t ABOUT language, the core mechanic IS language.”
Solving puzzles in games by talking to NPC’s? Sure that’s easy, but what if you don’t know what the heck they are talking about?
This game will cause some weird and hilarious situations where the player needs to figure out a strange language and use it to teach Cavemen new things in return.
It’s a game about helping Cavemen survive the coming Ice Age but to help them you'll need to learn their language first!
This is done by observing the Cavemen, repeating what they say and by experimenting through trial and error.
The player uses language to explain puzzle solutions, but because the language used to explain things is learned in the game itself,
no language barrier exists for anyone in the world.
There’s not a single spoken or written word in the game itself so the game can be played by anyone!
Don't take our word for it, play the DEMO HERE!
Tribal & Error is a game about language, without language.
You’re 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!
