Stone Age farming life-sim Roots of Pacha has returned to Steam

By - | Views: 16,971

After a messy situation with their publisher, Soda Den has now split from Crytivo and Roots of Pacha has returned for sale on Steam.

What is it? Roots of Pacha is basically Stardew Valley but in the Stone Age. That is the simplest way to explain it and it's actually a really good description of it. There's plenty of additions and differences of course and it has been reviewing well so it was a shame when it vanished.

Here's the statement shared in full:

Over the past two weeks, Crytivo and Soda Den have worked tirelessly to achieve the common goal of restoring Roots of Pacha on Steam. We are happy to share we have reached an agreement and that Roots of Pacha has been restored to Steam for all to purchase.

We also would like to share that Crytivo and Soda Den have made the decision to amicably part ways under terms that are mutually beneficial.

Soda Den sincerely thanks the Crytivo team for their efforts to support and market Roots of Pacha. Crytivo sincerely thanks Soda Den for their dedication and craft that went into the creation of Roots of Pacha.

Our collective priority has always been the fans. We hope that the restoration of the Steam store page brings you joy.

Thank you all for your support.


Crytivo and Soda Den

In case you missed it they also added a Native Linux build, mainly for the Steam Deck, where they believe it will work better overall. Now the situation is sorted, I'll be going and taking another look at it.

Available to buy on Humble Store and Steam.

Well, I'm sorry that things went downhill (not that I personally accept responsibility) but I'm glad that they worked something out that all parties and the fans might benefit from.

I've been watching my partner play this for a while, and it looks really well made. Now that the game has returned to Steam with native Linux support advertised I've picked it up.

Okay, just watched the trailer and saw there was a rhythm game component.

BIG strike against for me. I'm utterly terrible at those, and I find them a terrible roadblock in games that include them (Evoland 2, for instance). Hopefully that's an entirely optional minigame with nothing really desirable on the other side.
