Name of prehistoric Macintosh game?

Can you help me remember the name of an old Macintosh game where you played as a pre-historic Homo Sapien?

Time frame was some time in the late 1990s, Mac OS 7 or 8. Shareware, probably downloaded from AOL.

Most of the game concerned wandering around the African savanna as an early Homo Sapien. The main gameplay was pseudo-3D, with 2D sprites for trees and such.

I distinctly remember a mini-game where you had to chisel away at rocks to make axes or arrowheads.

Google searches haven't turned up much. Does anyone remember the name of this game?

I believe it was Sapiens.

If not, here's Moby Games' list of caveman protagonists.
