Pampas

by Aditya Srinath

partially successful

    A 3rd person survival game trying to simulate the lives of Paleolithic hunter gatherers in Ice Age Argentina.

    Pampas, a planned third person survival game, is a small project that was founded by Leonel Zveibil and Aditya Srinath on November 25th, 2017.

    Of the 9 developers we've managed to compile for now, our goal is to simulate the lives of Paleolithic hunter gatherers attempting to simmer up survival in 14,000 year old Argentina. The player will start alone and abandoned, pitted against the primordial world of the Pleistocene, the land teaming with saber-toothed cats, giant sloths and many other megafaunal beasts. Originally aiming to survive solo, the player will attempt to socially branch out, either joining a preexisting tribe or setting out to build their own group of humans in attempt for prehistoric domination.

    Pampas is currently in the concepting/modeling phase of its game development, having produced multiple sketches and a few fleshed out animal concepts, with more concept art and models being worked on. We strive for paleontological accuracy, planning to be as accurate as we are able to code. We have consulted some of the greatest paleontological anthropological, botanical, and geographical researchers in the field in an effort to make our game as authentic as possible.

    My part

    I am Aditya Srinath, one of the founders and a sound designer for the development team. My partner Leonel and I have managed to scrap up a team of 9, comprising of concept artists, modelers, and research consults. We are learning as we go and trying to have fun with the whole experience.

    (Expected) Revenue

    We plan to pay our employees based on the amount of work they put into this project.

    As we begun work on this project 3 months ago, we are but an amateur team full of unpaid personnel driven by the interest in the subject. You will initially not be paid, and I discourage you from joining if you expect initial payment.

    Hi Sarah! I am glad that you're interested! Pampas is planned to release originally on the PC, though we are open to taking on other platforms following the PC releases. Our expected launch time for the game demo (which will accompany the crowdfunding effort) will be in a year-year and a half. This demo will include 5 working animal entities, a basic UI system, and a complete map. We plan to make this a realistic styled project, at least to the best of our abilities. Hope you can join our team, Aditya
