Build the future in this unique roguelike survival base builder/shooter
Team17 and Radiation Blue have today released a brand new E3 trailer for Genesis Alpha One, a stunning new sci-fi game powered by Unreal Engine 4 and combining a unique mix of roguelike FPS, base building and survival elements heading to PC (and console).
The new trailer introduces IDA, the artificial intelligence onboard the USS Genesis that will guide players through the mission to save humanity from the brink of extinction. Planet Earth has succumbed to war, pollution and corruption. Before all is lost, Earth’s major corporations create the Genesis Programme, tasking a fleet of ships with a journey into uncharted space on the ultimate mission: to find a suitable new home for humanity’s DNA.
Combining a unique mix of genres Genesis Alpha One allows players to build and customise their vessel, farm resources, deal with terrifying alien infestations, clone creatures and explore a vast, randomly generated universe.
Here is what we know about the game so far:
Genesis Alpha One is purported to be a revolutionary mix of roguelike shooter, base building and survival that will put you in the role of an interstellar pioneer.
“In a near future ravaged by wars; corrupt regimes and global capitalism left unchecked have resulted in natural resource over-exploitation and pollution devastating the planet. Societies are collapsing. Supported by Earth’s remaining governments, four influential corporations initiate the Genesis program. As the Captain of a Genesis starship, your journey into uncharted space on the ultimate mission.”
So to do this you will need to build and manage a space vessel, farm resources, deal with terrifying alien infestations, clone creatures and explore a vast, randomly generated universe.
Your goal: Find new homes for humanity’s DNA and save the species from extinction.
- BUILD AND MANAGE YOUR UNIQUE STARSHIP
- EXPLORE A VAST, RANDOMLY-GENERATED UNIVERSE
- BATTLE ALIEN INFESTATIONS
- CLONE YOUR CREW AND CREATE NEW LIFEFORMS
- HARVEST RESOURCES FROM THE VASTNESS OF SPACE
- UNCOVER THE STORY OF THE GENESIS PROGRAM
Uncover the depths of an expansive lore and with immersive narrative elements. Events on Earth progress much faster than on board the Genesis ship – each light speed jump will fast-forward events on Earth by several years. From distant, deep space, players will see wars starting and ending, corporations rising and their agendas changing, people being born, growing old and dying.
- SECURE HUMANITY’S FUTURE
In a science fiction story of biblical proportions, the crew of your ship will seek out the perfect home planet for the clones you have created during your expedition and initiate a Genesis. After a Genesis is initiated, your reward will be based on the fate of your settlers in 500 years’ time. The choices you make throughout your playthrough will determine what humanity becomes and where they find their new home. You’ll have to match the DNA of aliens with that of your clone crew to settle on the new world.
