SAN FRANCISCO - May 22, 2013 - Indie developer Mousechief is announcing that 7 Grand Steps: What Ancients Begat will release on June 7, 2013 from Steam and Mousechief.com. This unique casual game was a finalist in the Nuovo category of this year's Independent Game Festival and received an honorable mention in narrative. A 15-20 hour experience not including replays, 7 Grand Steps will sell for $15 as a PC / Mac download.

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.

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. Learn more at: http://www.7grandsteps.com

Advance Praise for 7 Grand Steps: What Ancients Begat:

"There's a synergy between mechanics and story that keeps you moving turn after turn." - G4TV

"It's a simple looking game, but as I played the demo I found myself unable to stop..." - Kill Screen

"7 Grand Steps is enticing and almost entirely apart from the hundreds of games that have passed through my PC in the last twelve months." - RockPaperShotgun

"The writing is packed full of entertaining wording so as to create images in your head..." - IndieStatik

"...the kind of game that will sneak up on you—yet very likely to ensnare you in its slow-paced strategy after just a few minutes of play." - GameZebo
