Roots of Pacha has been announced as a brand-new farming RPG with a special twist of its own: it's set in the early days of history when mankind first put down roots and settled in villages.

Check out the Roots of Pacha Announcement Trailer and check out the adorable caveman farming action:

Do you hear that? That's the sound of a few hundred hours of my life vanishing in a puff of mist.

In this upcoming game from Soda Den and Crytivo, players will be doing things a little differently than your traditional farming RPG. You're not just unlocking new tools and technologies as you play — you're discovering them for the very first time in mankind's history.

Tribal society was the foundation of man's early villages, and that's a factor here, too. Your clan is a close community of people living and working together, and they'll serve as the people you'll meet as you enjoy making something new in this tropical paradise.

You can expect there to be many of the same mainstays of the genre, too. In the trailer, we see the player character handing a shell to a cute girl. Sometime later, the two of them get married in a pretty interesting take on a wedding ceremony.

One other interesting twist is that it seems that the player won't be working alone. We also see several other villagers engaging in farming and mining, so there may be a mild village management element to this game, too.

When is the Roots of Pacha Release Date?

When will you be able to get this adorable farming RPG? Well, there's good news and bad news.

The bad news is that there is not yet a firm release date for this game. A press release from the publisher does say that they're targeting a Q1 2021 release window, meaning that it's planned to be publicly available sometime between January 1–March 31, 2021.

The good news is that you might not have to wait that long to play it! Crytivo will be launching a closed alpha test sometime before the launch. You can be alerted about the closed alpha by joining Crytivo's Discord. In the meantime, you can add Roots of Pacha to your wishlist on Steam.
