'Roots Of Pacha' Kickstarter Fully Funded In 24 Hours, Opens Up Stretch Goals

by Rainier on Feb. 24, 2021 @ 3:00 p.m. PST

Roots Of Pacha is a co-op farming and life simulation game set in the stone age.

Help your once nomadic clan settle in a promised and fertile land. By connecting with nature you’ll develop Ideas to evolve, enrich your culture, relationships, and discover the mysteries of Pacha, mother nature.

Roots of Pacha is first and foremost a farming sim. But that doesn't mean it has a seed or animal shop. Part of settling means exploring the wildlands to discover new plants and improving them, making wild variants more nutritious and valuable. 

By adding to the Clan's seed storage and gaining knowledge about plants, you'll also discover new, more domesticated varieties.

Throughout the world and seasons, you'll encounter families of animals, which at first appear to ignore you. By slowly approaching and enticing them, you'll befriend them and even invite them to live with you. Animals are a core part of Roots of Pacha as they have also been in our human history: sources of nourishment, protection, and friendship.

Caring for your furry and feathery Clan members will eventually let them breed and evolve into new species.  Start fishing the shallow waters, ankle deep, waiting for the fish to come near you for the right moment to catch them. As you evolve, you'll invent new tools and techniques for fishing to reach deeper waters with larger fish.

Venture deep, through the cracks of the world to find resources needed to evolve and also encounter the spiritual world. Will you accept the challenges of the Wise Owl Totem?  Solve puzzles to gain access to their powers and reach places hidden in the world.

Roots of Pacha smashed their Kickstarter campaign's $35,000 goal in less than 24 hours. Soda Den along with Crytivo are incredibly proud to have such a supportive community. 

Next stretch goal: Wedding Planner!

In Roots of Pacha we will not call it a marriage, instead we will refer to it as a union. A way two Pachans can join their paths together and start a journey in which both support each other. It still includes the party afterwards! 

The first of our stretch goals is "Wedding Planner". You'll be able to choose where your ceremony is going to take place! Here are some concepts we have been having fun making! 

NEXT GOAL: WATER BENDER

Fishing is fun, but fishing on a boat is double the fun! Find a sweet spot in the middle of the lake and catch a whole new variety of fish. Or maybe sail from a beach dock to a nearby coral reef. 

Playing with friends? Time for a fishing trip together!
