Team17 are at it again, teaming up with indie developer Radiation Blue in order to publish the rather stunning title, Genesis Alpha One.
Announced today, Genesis Alpha One combines a mix of rogue-like elements with first person shooting mechanics, base building and the current trender, a bit of survival! The first game from Radiation Blue – a team who have history with the likes of Hitman: Blood Money, Spec Ops: The Line, The Settlers and more – looks set to thrust us into a near future world, one which has been ravaged by war, corruption and global capitalism. Societies are collapsing all over, but supported by Earth’s remaining governments, four influential corporations initiate the Genesis program.
And that is where you come in. As the Captain of a Genesis starship, you will journey into uncharted space on the ultimate mission – build and manage a space vessel, farm resources, deal with terrifying alien infestations, clone creatures and explore a vast, randomly generated universe. There is just one goal in mind…find new homes for humanity’s DNA and save the species from extinction.
“We are very excited to work with Team17 on Genesis Alpha One. We highly appreciate Team17’s passion for games, their transparent developer friendly procedures and of course their exciting portfolio, that we’re now a part of! When we were kids, we enjoyed playing Team17 games such as Alien Breed and Worms. These creative and artistic experiences helped support our decisions to become video games creators. Today, with this partnership, things have come full circle which is incredibly exciting,” said Sascha Jungnickel, Creative Director of Radiation Blue.
Debbie Bestwick, MBE, Team17’s CEO added, “Radiation Blue are an exciting new studio made up of incredibly talented individuals, each with a great track record in AAA games development. Genesis Alpha One offers gamers a unique blend of genres in a stunning sci-fi setting and we are thrilled to be able to help them on their journey.”
The fate of humanity will be in your hands and we’ll be sure to bring you more about Genesis Alpha One as and when we have it.
