About This 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!

What a wonderful game, but the sad fact is the community didn't stick around for too long.

Epigenesis is a very interesting title. It's a sports game mixed with fast paced parkour FPS. The goal is simple, you go to the center of the arena to capture a ball which you need to take to the opposite side of the arena and score goals, after each goal you get a seed which is used to set up boosters, defense systems and turrets to fight alongside with you. When you plant the final seed on the opposing hoop the game is instantly won.

The title looks alright for the most part and maxed out it runs almost perfectly, apart from some slight FPS drops when the action gets too fast.

The arenas are built so you have to jump around platforms to get to where you need to go and sometimes the jumping is really tough to control, sometimes you miss your mark and sometimes you go overboard.

The game has a single player mode which has five arenas to play through and you can choose how many bots are on the arena on your team and on the opposing team.

This game is great and is a ton of fun too, but there is one major flaw and that the game is completely dead. Unless you have a friend to play alongside with you except to play solo only.

The game alone is still pretty fun, but with people it would be even wore fun.

I would love to recommend this game to everyone, but unless you have a friend willing to play this with you, there's no point in buying just for solo play as you will play through every arena in an hour.

Final Rating:
5/10 - Buy it if you have friends who play it

MY DIARY

Oct. 1, 1986 So I started playing this game called Epigenesis, first thought: "Wow what a great game!"

Oct. 2, 1986 Funny thing, only 4 servers with players...

Oct. 3, 1986 Playing "Epi" again, Amsterdam's the only server now, weird...

Oct. 4, 1986 I thought people like this game?

Oct. 5, 1986 Again alone on the server... if anyone sees this... don't enter... it may seem like a great game... but where are all the players? It must be haunted.. If you're reading this.. I probably didn't make it either.



O c t . 6 They're coming for me .. those monsters .. I cant stand the silence anymore .. I just want it to end .. Oh no! Th-they're com-coming..! Help M-me! Plea_ ___ s //_ e!
