Oh, Simon. You’re pretty terrible at Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey aren’t you?

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey from Assassin’s Creed creator Patrice Desilets is out in the wild. And of course we forced Simon Miller to play it. Because that’s how we are.

He doesn’t do too well as a monkey, but in his defense, the game doesn’t hold your hand at any point. Let’s just say Simon found out the hard way being a monkey isn’t easy and death was inevitable.

In the end, Simon should probably have read over our guide pages. He would have learned how to use tools, gather food, and how to counter-attack when faced with a massive, hungry bird. Don’t be like Simon. Hit up our guides for survival tips.

If you enjoyed the video, you should consider helping line Miller’s Patreon wallet. Maybe it will help get better at being a chimpanzee boy in chimpanzee world.
