Sometimes, you may spawn in solitude in the wilderness. To keep warm, you will need to make a fire and trap rabbits in order to obtain meat and furs. In the beginning, a sharp stone could be your best friend. You should find a place to settle down and grow food. Other players could soon be your children and you will need to take care of them until they become mature enough to help.
Sometimes, you’ll be born in sprawling cities with farmers, blacksmiths and shepherds. You will find clothes and equipment prepared by distant relatives or grandparents. Perhaps you’ll gather friends and start your own settlement, or you might inherit a job on a farm from your uncle. Or maybe you’ll kill bears and wolves. There are many options, but you must remember that unless you leave the planet better than you found it before you left it, there is no way to achieve anything.
Every day you live, you will come in contact with new people. Some are more skilled than you and some are less. Some will be able to teach you, while others will learn from your mistakes. Some might even be disruptive to your civilization and need to be addressed accordingly. Your role is to help shape the world, and to do so before the next generation takes over.
You can view your family tree to see the progress of your descendants after your game is over. It’s a great feeling to be proud of each of your younger relatives that survive into adulthood, and each generation that follows you. Knowing that you made it possible.
