Sapiens Myriad, Didier Guillion / Loriciels 1987

This is an adventure/arcade game that brings you back 100,000 years ago for discovering the everyday life of the Homo Sapiens Neandertalensis. You play as a young hunter from the Light-Foot tribe, and as such you'll have to explore your territory, keep up friendly contacts with the other tribes, trade objects, make assegai heads and fight for your life. One key to survival is to know your environment: learning the location of the springs, the hunting territories full of rabbits, the gloomy plains where wolves are on the prowl and the other tribe's camps is paramount. It gives you absolute freedom - you are free to explore the land and do whatever you want at any time. This degree of freedom, the virtual absence of plot, as well as the inclusion of basic RPG-style statistics such as Health, Agility, and Charisma, make Sapiens more of a survival simulation in the vein of Robinson's Requiem (although not 1/100th as aggravating) than a true adventure game. You must drink when you are thirsty, eat when you are hungry, and sleep when you are tired - but other than these basic simulation elements, the game is not very complicated. In 1996, a graphically enhanced Windows shareware version was released. The v3.0 was made freeware in 2017.
