Primitives is a third person survival/strategy game set on an alien planet filled with diverse flora and fauna. You must lead a tribe of primitive tribes people by assuming the role of chief, the only tribe member with the brainpower to lead the tribe to prosperity. To conquer the land you must defeat the king of the jungle, a ferocious beast with a ravenous hunger that includes alien and man meat alike. To defeat this beast, you must expand your tribe by collecting various resources such as wood, stone leather and bone and utilize these to build up your camp. The larger the camp the more members will flock to your tribe which means more mouths to feed but also greater strength to combat the predators that roam the land.
