Welcome to the Allocene project!

The Allocene Project is a world-building project devoted to speculate about the future of lifeforms on Earth after the hypothetical extinction of the human being.

The project sets up a scenario in a notional period called Allocene, 35 million years in the future. As its name suggests (Allo= Different, Kainos= New), the Allocene period entails a great change in many ways.
Warm and humid climate conditions, similar to those which prevailed during the Paleocene and Eocene periods, take over the world. The tropical area grew largely around the globe reaching the temperate latitudes. Forest biomes became globally predominant: the Antarctic ice sheet has almost completely disappeared, and coniferous forests cover most of this subcontinent; and Europe is covered with a extensive rainforest similar to the modern-day Amazon region.
These dramatic changes lead to the extinction of hundreds of species too specialized to adapt themselves. However, this new world was an open door for a myriad of brand new living forms, unexpected evolutionary patterns and never seen ways of development.


If you have any (serious) idea related to this project, or if you want to contribute with a picture, you will be welcome here and it will be very much appreciated. In addition to that
you will become a member of the ongoing project.

Is Australia merged with Neuguinea?
In the folder of Australia it is stated that: "Australia has reached ecuatorial latitudes during its northwards drift, merging with New Guinea", while on this map they are still separated:…

That map is actually outdated and non canon with the project

Could I join the group?

I suppose you can, but the group is a bit 'dead'

Since the Australian folder was looking a little light, I wanted to help fill it up a bit. Are there any specific habitats or animals native to Allocene Australia that I should know about before I start?

Hello I wanted to ask you how do you add your artwork to a specific gallery? I would like to add some of my artwork to the south american gallery.
electreel Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2015
Only I can manage the gallery. Please specify the habitat of each creature in their description and I'll move them to the right folders :)

Hey, I was wondering If I could use the name Allocene as one of the epochs of my upcoming future evo project. It wouldn't have any direct relation to this project, nor would it share any of the same species. I just thought it would be a clever little in-joke. Do I have the go-ahead, or should I chose a different name?
electreel Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2015
Yes, of course! After all, "Allocene" is just a combination of two Greek terms, so I can't really claim ownership over it ;)
