    1. I'm looking for a (fairly) accurate "caveman" game

      A cursory search found only comedic, light-hearted, fantastical options. I want something set in the late Pleistocene or early Holocene, roughly 50,000-8,000 years BCE. At least somewhat...

      A cursory search found only comedic, light-hearted, fantastical options.

      I want something set in the late Pleistocene or early Holocene, roughly 50,000-8,000 years BCE. At least somewhat (pre-)historically accurate (no dinosaurs or wizards, only 2001-esque aliens, at most), incorporating at least the basics of what we now know of that era.

      Either a single character or a small group (I'm envisioning something like Skyrim, or a Baldur's Gate style, or some kind of community-planner, like RimWorld or Dwarf Fortress).

      Alternately, if anyone still remembers the The Clan of the Cave Bear (novel or movie), I want that, in game form.

      Bonus points if it runs on Linux w/o Wine.

      Does anything like this exist, or should I just sit down and make it? Danke

    2. What are some engrossing self-contained iPhone games?

      In about 20 days I'll be taking a cruise and will effectively have no internet access. It's going to be a long trip with many sea days, so I'm looking for something that I can pick up on moments...

      In about 20 days I'll be taking a cruise and will effectively have no internet access. It's going to be a long trip with many sea days, so I'm looking for something that I can pick up on moments when I just want a bit more stimulation. The last time I took a trip like this I ended up playing Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

      I do have a preference for action-based titles since they tend to be easy to pick up and stop, but I also like games that require a bit of thought.

      I was considering subscribing to Apple Arcade again since it would let me access a number of games I would enjoy, but I'm not sure how often it would need to contact Apple to confirm the status of my subscription. Data will be extremely expensive on this trip, especially when out at sea.
