Balancing Monkey Games has announced its highly-anticipated, non-violent civilization building game Before We Leave will launch May 8th on the Epic Games Store. In order to celebrate this announcement, the developer released the game’s launch trailer that you can find below.
In Before We Leave, players take on the role of a leader of tribespeople who were cave dwellers forced underground because of uncontrollable disasters, only to emerge generations later with wonder and curiosity. Players are tasked with rebuilding civilization and expanding their reborn society to other continents and eventually other planets.
Throughout the game, resource management is key to thrive in the solar system as it will lead to discovering ancient tech and creating a planetary network of colonies. However, the universe is not fully safe. Ancient world guardians require attention and impose challenges on your cities and planets. The new worlds you discover and inhabit were previously destroyed by the disasters that drove your people underground, and those catastrophes will punish poorly managed civilizations.
