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.

Roots of Pacha expands its community of more than 200,000 players with its debut on Xbox One and Series X|S consoles alongside the launch of version 1.2 on Steam, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 & 5 on July 31, 2024 — now with full support for Korean and Traditional Chinese languages.

Version 1.2 dramatically increases the number of options for children, introducing school-age as part of their development alongside the newborn and toddler phases. Enroll the young ones into School where they will bond with others, develop their personalities, and discover the professions they want to pursue. Each child’s combination of parentage, personality, and profession leads to distinct dialog and gifts to earn.

Romance options expand with new dialogue, new Union reception options, and the ability to smooch beloved partners in the Union ceremony. Toggle the new “Available to date” setting to disable dating advances from other people.

Customize Pachans with new skin tones and hair colors. Ride mammoths, spiders, cave lions, and wolves as new mount options. As friendship progresses with pets, they can begin to fetch items from different areas to obtain items like herbs or meat. Utilize the olla, a new watering Idea that can help save time, especially in the early and middle of the game. 

This major update also implements a variety of quality-of-life improvements. Utilize intermediate saves by going to the bed and choosing “Save at current time.” Put multiple items in processors at once by holding the action button, take UI-free screenshots, utilize new sorting methods, and much more.

Those playing Roots of Pacha on Xbox One and Series X|S will enjoy full feature parity and crossplay co-op support with the more than 200,000 Stone Age civilization builders on other platforms. Discover the roots of humanity through new ideas and inventions like animal taming and cold storage, and lead the Pachan clan and their surrounding neighbors together to an age of peaceful prosperity.

“Beyond rebalancing many in-game features, Version 1.2 dramatically expands and improves the game for everyone from our long-time players to our new audience on Xbox,” said Timothy Dadone Nasello, Co-Founder of Soda Den.

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.

The game was developed from scratch with multiplayer support in mind. Live together with friends and share your talents and resources to help the clan evolve. Ride your favorite animals together. Compete in fishing, have fun at festivals, and participate in milestone multiplayer cutscenes.

Currently available for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5 and PC (Steam), Roots of Pacha is coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on July 31, 2024.
