We got some good news and sadly some bad news!

Hi everyone!

We have some good news and some bad news. Let's start with the bad news.

We are going to dissolve Dead Shark Triplepunch (despite it being the coolest name of all time). We just can't justify keeping the company since all of us has found new jobs or started to work on new games. We are of course sad about this, we loved working together and had an amazing time! However, sometimes this is the best solution. So as of today we have started the process of dissolving Dead Shark Triplepunch. This also means that all our servers that we have for Epigenesis is going to be shut down.

Now to the good news!

Epigenesis is going to become completely free on Steam! As of Friday the 10th of June Epigenesis is going to cost 0 dollars, euros, sek or whatever currency your Steam version is in. You can download and play with anyone! You will need to set-up your own server to do this, however, when you download the game we have a "Create server" tool that comes with the game so anyone can do this easily.

We want to thank anyone that bought the game, or even played the game during all this time. We had an amazing time working on the game, and we loved seeing players play the game. We hope to hear from you guys in the future (we might still go onto the Steam forums every now and then to say hi).

Thank you!

Best Regards
Dead Shark Triplepunch (André, Carl, Martin, Michael, Henrik, Tobias, Ola, Jonathan and Joakim)

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!
