Co-Op Farming & Stone Age Life Sim Roots of Pacha Coming to Switch, Version 1.1 Nov. 28


SAN DIEGO — Oct. 30, 2023 — Roots of Pacha, a co-op farming & life simulation game set in the Stone Age developed by Soda Den, lays down fresh roots on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 & 5 on Tuesday, Nov. 28. The console versions launch with version 1.1, also arriving on Steam for PC and Mac the same day. Xbox One and Series X|S versions arrive in 2024.
Already enjoyed by more than 100,000 villagers on Steam, Roots of Pacha arrives on consoles with feature parity and cross-platform multiplayer with the Steam version. Explore romance options with Voda, receive smoke signal gifts and letters, watch new cutscenes, and more alongside a number of quality-of-life improvements. Soda Den has further updates in the works for 2024 and beyond with the intent to maintain feature parity between console and PC versions.
As a member of the Pacha clan undergoing the Rite of Passage into adulthood, help the clan progress into the future. Gather resources and discover inventions, aiming to create a civilization that will lead the way for humanity while peacefully coexisting not just with Stone Age flora and fauna, but other clans throughout The Land.
Break out a handaxe – solely as a tool, as Soda Den consciously built Roots of Pacha as a nonviolent experience – and construct devices for the betterment of the clan, including communal composters, picklers, and cheesecloths. Create new tools to advance civilization, like blade shears, flutes, and milkers. Domesticate wild animals, fish for food, and research a variety of vegetation to develop the knowledge needed to best utilize each plant’s properties.
Explore the depths of the caves and expansive land to find new resources. Use what's discovered to help steer civilization towards monumental "Ideas" like irrigation, animal breeding, and cold storage to enable life-changing processes for all Pachans and neighboring communities.
Up to four Pachans can play together and traverse wild forests, puzzling caves, hot savannas, beaches, and more — all offering humanity unique resources to gather and mold into advanced tools to build a thriving civilization. Experience a guided RPG-esque story with world cutscenes that include surrounding players and single-player cutscenes that affect the world for everyone.
“My brother Joni and I founded Soda Den and built Roots of Pacha around the idea of meaningful cooperative games,” said Timothy Dadone Nasello, Co-Founder of Soda Den.
“When you join your friends in Roots of Pacha, you’re not just an afterthought. You’re an important part of the world and a part of their journey. That’s why we prioritized cross-platform multiplayer and feature parity when making the console versions.”
Roots of Pacha version 1.1 releases Tuesday, November 28 on PC via Steam alongside a launch on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 & 5 for $24.99 / €22.99 / £19.99 with support for English, French, German, Portuguese - Brazil, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, and Japanese languages. Xbox One and Series X|S versions are planned for a later date.
