Moving to your desired destination will be the main focus but you will need to address the various hurdles on the way and will have to keep an eye on the factors such as food etc. The diversity ion the gameplay is in terms of the scenarios and the decisions making for every scenario. When short on food, you can hunt animals and for crossing hurdles, you will be exposed to some good and bad options in which the good one will make you move on and the bad one will cause your death. So always make the decisions considering all the factors. The level designs, the characters and the scenarios have been designed with a good amount of creativity.
