Ornitocopter Studios is a brand new game development studio emerging onto the indie game scene. Their first ever title, announced today, is a rogue/stealth platformer set in a re-imagining of the prehistoric age. “Back in the Caves” will see you playing as a heroic caveman, fighting to save his settlement and ultimately his entire race. It’s like a game of that Jack Black caveman movie…if that movie was good…and involved platforms. Hmmm.
Being a caveman is a dangerous occupation though, and you will face threats from skeletons, other adventurers, bosses and the darkness. Weapons will level up the further you proceed through the game and every weapon has a special ability, kind of like Fable III’s weapon system. Its survival of the fittest, so make sure you have plenty of Mountain Dew and cheeseburgers to keep up that stamina.
Villages are your allies, and when you return to them, your interactions will define how they respond to you. Engage is cult traditions, rituals and prehistoric faith. What are the mysteries of the caves? Will there be dinosaurs? Is the caveman just an eternally lost tourist in Jurassic Park? Watch the teaser trailer below to find out more!
Back in the Caves will be released on the PC.
