Hands-on with Genesis Alpha One
This new space opera is not what you think it is – Genesis Alpha One looks like an FPS, on paper reads like No Man’s Sky, but in reality is aiming to be a whole lot more. While it sounds like a mishmash, the mix of roguelike, FPS, base building, and survival ideas gels beautifully in our hands-on. Each style of play unfolds organically as we build, explore, and defend our starship from alien and human threats.
The ultimate goal is to find an ‘alpha planet’ and colonise it with human DNA. To get there you need to build a starship, explore planets, and harvest resources to manage your crew of clones. (If one dies, resources permitting, clone a new crew member).
If you gamble on a new planet, and run out of crew and resources, it’s game over. Genesis melds a complex set of ideas, proving it’s no clone. Follow the game’s updates on Twitter @GenesisAlphaOne.
