    Dawn of Man is a top quality, challenging city-building simulator that is a must have for the fans of the genre, even though they are a rare bread these days.

    Although it’s not revolutionary, Dawn of Man is a pretty solid management and strategy game. If you like the genre and the setting, you won’t find many shortcomings here.

    Hunt mammoths, cultivate the land and bake bread in an educational and fun gaming experience about the dawn of human history. Just be prepared for some rough edges.

    Visually appealing and placid strategy with an interesting scenario, but not enough depth.

    Dawn of Man is a rather simplistic take on the city builder formula and does not offer as much content as you might expect from the genre. But for a few days I really enjoyed watching my little settlement grow, thanks to its unique setting and accessible mechanics. If you keep your expectations in check, there is a good chance you will enjoy playing Dawn of Man.

    Dawn of Man is a good city builder, which is limited by its own concept.

    Very intriguing game about prehistory that is keeping me engaged for more than 20 hours now. For that price an awesome buy. Check it out!

    After 22 hours.
    I'm kind of disappointed. It should be survival game but i don't see how I can die. After very nice tutorial I already knew everything I need to know to go through game. There vere no suprice or challange what so ever.
    If I compare it with Forrest Village where I died three times before I finaly find out how to survive and succesfully develop village. Dawn of Men become boring very fast.
    On the other hand manging of works is well made, graphic is nice, loading time is very short and i didn't meet any bug.

    Edit:
    I just rise up rating.
    Big issue with lack of content is solved by using workshop. I prefer different approach but it could works. Also these contents can be made with bigger difficulty.

    I give this game a One because of dishonesty at the core of this release although the game is barely engageable. Do not trust the rave reviewsI give this game a One because of dishonesty at the core of this release although the game is barely engageable. Do not trust the rave reviews and watch the repetitive comments change with real inconsistency. Actual factual players find themselves confused at reading about successful mechanical cycles and encountering a laundry list of psychographic fails.

    No psychographic profile exists for this release as every sales portal has only a few bad reviews and mostly saturated with flaming fandom. The game is claimed to be out of BETA. This game is still not adequately designed and thus should not be out of the ALPHA phase of development. The audience feels like the same person over and over doing separate different reviews to try and keep the positive vibe going for the first MAU month. For anyone unfamiliar with the acronym it stands for Monthly Active Users. Eleven positively misrepresented "Timmy" reviews and one brutally honest "Spike" review equals an astounding "Astroturf" game release.

    Lets recap:
    The game is released not entirely designed.
    No quality level of critical thinking is in the reviews.
    The community is spamming the hell out of the steam portal but not the discord one.
    The focus of this release is on obtaining initial DAU and MAU numbers. (Daily Active Users)
