Indie developer Mousechief has announced that 7 Grand Steps: What Ancients Begat will be released on June 7, 2013. The unique casual game was a finalist in the Nuovo category of this year's Independent Game Festival and received an honorable mention in narrative. 7 Grand Steps combines board game mechanics with a narrative spanning the formation of modern western civilization.
7 Grand Steps: What Ancients Begat is a strategy game that uses a board game mechanic to advance a rich, intimate narrative. Via brief text vignettes that add up to the length of two novels, see how the trials our western ancestors endured influence our lives today. Playing as dozens of generations across four social classes that change with the ages, players assume a formative role in the evolution of human history, discovering more than 70 inventions that changed the world, braving a score of heroic adventures, and facing the challenges of three mini-ruling games.Learn more at the site linked below.

In February, Mouschief released a beta version of 7 Grand Steps through the Humble Store. The game has since been updated and refined based on player feedback. At launch, beta purchasers will be able to download the finished game and receive a free Steam key, if desired.
From the sweat of laborers to the perspective of kings, 7 Grand Steps allows you to experience the drama of a family lineage that survived the changing ages -- or did they survive? How you guide them determines their fate.
