What the developers say:

“Hi there, thanks for checking out Epigenesis!
Epigenesis is currently in Beta and is almost feature complete.

The game is a multiplayer-focused FPS with a fast-paced movement system that relies heavily on jumping and air movement. There is a singleplayer mode, but so far only two maps have bot-support.

If you choose to buy Epigenesis now this is what you can expect:
• A multiplayer ballgame plant domination game mode.
• A very early version of the InstaGib game mode with one blockout-level.
• A singleplayer mode with access to two of the game's six maps.
• It can be hard to find players to play with during weekdays.
• A small and helpful community.
• Community involved developers (yay us!).
• 6 Plants with different abilities (Smokescreen, Ramp, Mortar, Trench, Turret, Shield).
• 5 Passive buffs to enhance your playstyle (Speed, Airmove, Acceleration, Firerate, Jump-boost).
• Customization system granting 30 possible Plant/buff combinations.
• 6 Maps featuring 3 different gameplay elements (Tornadoes, Jump pads, Tactical Smoke) in different combinations.
• There are bugs! Most of them are annoyances rather than mega-mutant-game-crashers.
• Community and Official game servers in the US and EU.
• A server hosting tool for helping with setting up your very own server!

All the best,
Dead Shark Triplepunch”

About the Game

Epigenesis is an online multiplayer sports/FPS game in which two sides are locked in a never-ending fight for world domination by playing ball.

In this non-lethal ballgame of the future, players leap across platforms suspended high up in the air trying to get a ball located in the middle of the arena and score goals against their opponents. Each player carries a gravity cannon capable of pushing enemies (and friends) down from the heights of the arena.

When a player scores, he receives a genetically modified super-seed and gets the opportunity to plant it onto a platform to capture it. To win the game you must capture towers and construct a node system from your goal post all the way to your opponents' goal post. If this hasn't happened by the time that the clock reaches zero, the team with the most scores win!

Teamwork, tactics and precision is key to win eternal glory in a game of Epigenesis!

"It’s just crazy enough to work, and where it wasn’t crazy enough of its own accord, developer Dead Shark Triplepunch (yes, that’s their real name) just added tornadoes. Done and done."
- Rock Paper Shotgun

"Judges praised Epigenesis for its ingenious concept, engaging gameplay and clever use of a scientific concept inspired by the theme for this year’s competition."
