Pasha Roots, a new Stone Age-themed RPG and sim game from developer Soda Den, is finally purchasable on Steam once again. The Steam page just stopped working weeks ago due to a dispute between developer and publisher Crytivo.
Pasha Roots It was originally launched on April 25, 2023. Crytivo and Soda Den both issued an identical statement on their social sites informing fans of the restored Steam page. Here is the picture from the official game tweet:
The two entities appear to have finally shook hands, and today’s joint statement carefully acknowledges the work and value of either team. Overall, it’s a satisfying conclusion to a tense and complex situation that players will finally get to get through after all.
Both the publisher and the developer communicated directly with fans, clearly agreeing that they were a priority. This should help smooth things out as both teams progress.
Legality and miscommunication are among the most frustrating and recurring challenges in development, but it’s always a shame that fans aren’t able to invest in a title they’ve waited and supported for so long. Indie games are an underdog to begin with, so it can be even more frustrating when anything derails their release.
We hope the fans continue to gather Pasha Roots. Although it borrows from the likes Stardew Valleyand its visuals and music are very thematic and recognizable.
The context allows for small twists on familiar mechanics, such as the chance discovery of early human inventions. On top of that, the multiplayer support is unexpected and extensive for such a small game. We recently reviewed the full game, and you can check out the original launch trailer at Pasha Roots YouTube channel:
