Useful Tips for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is one of those games that doesn’t hold your hand and it's up to you to find out how the game works. Discovering how everything works is an important part of the game. Without taking that away, here are some useful tips that will help you get started in the world of Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey.
You can skip cutscenes
For the first few hours of the game I didn’t know this and became frustrated watching the same cutscenes over and over again. If you don’t want to watch the long cutscenes after giving birth or evolving, just hold the back button on your controller.
Carry your kids to gain experience faster
If you carry two kids you get more experience while completing actions in the game. So be sure to have kids right after you start a new generation to gain more neuronal energy.
By evolving your lineage, you can permanently add the mutations of your clan members. That does not apply to mutations of kids though. So make sure you Gen-Up before evolving.
Keep eating the food that causes you stomach aches
At first I avoided the food that caused a blurry vision and a debuff icon in the bottom left corner, but if you keep eating it eventually your lineage will get accustomed to that type of food.
Always keep a stick or branch with you
You can use sticks or branches to fight off an attacker by holding A on your controller and moving towards the enemy. Wait until you hear the sound cue and let go of A. If your attack is successful, the attacker will flee and leave you alone for some time.
Analyze dead clan members
If you analyze dead clan members you gain a lot of additional neuronal energy.
If you travel in a group you can intimidate attackers
If you try to scare away a predator on your own, it will almost certainly fail and doesn’t impress the attacker in any way. Try travelling in a group and predators will run away if you intimidate them.
