Project Genesis is a combination of a simulator focused on dynamic space battles and first person shooter. It was produced by the independent studio 8 Circuit. The game allows us to become an artificial intelligence that can decide the fate of mankind. Project Genesis puts great emphasis on cooperation and competition between players.
Many thousands of years ago, there was an advanced civilization on Earth that mastered the technology of interstellar travel. But it was destroyed by a mysterious cataclysm. Humanity, however, managed to discover the secrets hidden for centuries and also reached the stars. SI-controlled machines were sent into space to look for inhabitable planets. The game begins in 2134, and we play in an artificial intelligence that has evolved on its own. The task assigned to us is to find and repair the colonization ship on which the last representatives of mankind are located.
Project Genesis combines elements of FPS game and space simulator. As an artificial intelligence we are installed on our mother ship, but nothing stands in the way of boarding other ships in FPS mode or even taking control of them.
Ships are piloted from a third-person view. However, it is not a complicated system like the 3X. The game focuses on dynamic space fights and fast boarding actions. Project Genesis allows players to board other ships with their avatars and even take them over. The game turns into a fully fledged FPS game.
The creators focus on a low threshold of entry for new players and the clarity of the interface. Therefore, both during the ship's flight and corridor crossing in FPS mode we have to worry about only two indicators - energy and life (in the case of a ship these are hull points). Energy is used to power our shields, weapons and skills. The game focuses on unification - in both modes the player has two weapons available simultaneously, as well as three skills - one passive and two activated.
Project Genesis is a game trying to encourage players to have fun and compete with each other. This is done in the Match Mode, where teams compete against each other in 3 rounds in order to achieve the goals set by the game in the required time. The final victory is won by the team that wins more fights (ties are possible).
Network struggles are tied together by the mechanics of seasons, which introduce thematic challenges and objects, and even factions.
Project Genesis is to become a part of Metaversum - a system created by 8 Circuit, which combines different games of both their and their partners'. Under Metaversum, players and developers will be able to purchase, transfer, improve and sell game assets and tools. This is supposed to cost the currency spent by the studio - 8BT Token.
