What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Project Genom is not just an MMO with unique features, it's an entire universe, developed by a small independent team. Together with the players, we’re creating a project that could captivate fans of online games for a long time, giving them new experiences and impressions. Our team is constantly evolving and improving the game. We are growing and along with us, the project is growing, too. But as more complex and multifaceted the game becomes, the more time and effort it requires. That is why we believe that Early Access on Steam would help the project move forward tremendously. More help from the players will give us the opportunity to implement all those missing mechanics and ideas, without which we cannot call Project Genom a complete game. Players, in turn, would be able to try out the game and give us feedback, allowing us to adjust the development of the game in the right direction, in order to create a great MMO.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The pace of development will depend entirely on the feedback Project Genom receives. The more feedback we receive from our community, the sooner we’ll be able to release updates, moving the project ever closer to its release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full game will include new features such as: mech control, advanced character customization, lots of ways to develop your character, new skill trees, different transport types, pets, better crafting and resource gathering, expanded game world with open space and new storyline chapters, as well as full voiceover in two languages. However, we hope to keep working on these and many new features even after the game becomes fully released. We’re also going to focus on the PvP aspects and performance optimizations.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is in the alpha stage at the moment, so we strongly discourage those who expect a complete and finished project from buying it. However, even now Project Genom is able to offer dozens of hours of gameplay, three chapters of the storyline and over a hundred side quests, numerous armor and weapon types, vehicles, skill trees, huge seamless world, crafting and resource extraction, group and solo instances, dozens of unique gaming enemies and bosses with special mechanics, mob nests and lairs growing in real time, medusas migrating in the world, random events, travelling merchants, systems of groups and syndicates along with voiceover in English and Russian languages. The game is constantly evolving and being updated with new mechanics, including those offered by Project Genom community.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game is distributed by the buy-to-play system, which means that you only need to pay for the game once. Once the game is released, the price will increase.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Throughout the project development, we treat our players with care, and Early Access will not change this. We will continue to conduct various surveys and polls, which will help us to decide on some game aspects. We will continue to please the players with different contests, awarding them both game and real prizes. Our list of interesting suggestions from the community will continue to expand on a daily basis, and players will be able to see their own ideas first on our roadmap, and finally, in the game.
In addition, we are always looking for new talents in the team, and very much hope to find gamedev professionals among our fans who would join our ranks and help us make the game even more interesting!”

Development Progress News

Development Progress News
Hello, friends! While Neuronhaze team is totally wrapped up in Project Genom development, you keep on constantly waiting for the news about the game. We are a small team that has a huge amount of work and extremely specific tasks to do, and that won’t allow us to keep you informed on a daily basis and set specific dates and time limits for various stages of development. In any case, the project development is in progress, and the closer we get to the first major test stage, the more frequently we’ll set dates and update you on the news.


Characters
In the meantime, there are a lot of players and no less a lot of unique characters waiting for the new Project Genom update. There will be more quest characters on the Avalon, and many noticed the absence of women characters which is to be fixed very soon.

Entropos, a state and a corporation all in one, whose residents make up the population of the Harbinger, gathered worthy representatives of mankind on the old Earth under its wing, paying attention only to the abilities and benefit of each individual and sweeping all prejudices aside. So even now you can assure yourself that the Ark’s population is multi-ethnic.

Another important feature of the Project Genom world is the mutants and the synths who will play an increasingly important role as you make your game progress. At the beginning, the players will be able to observe various mutation features or technological changes on the faces of some characters.


Levels
We keep working on the expansion and improvement of the game world. The first tests in the new locations will bring new emotions even to the Genom veterans. You may not recognize the places you thought you knew, the world will be bigger and more interesting.

We’ll try to make the world exploration a task useful to the player adding more possibilities, daily tasks, and unexpected encounters. The new game version will allow us to implement a lot of ideas. The ongoing work on improving the game plot and its quests is also very helpful in this perspective.


Balance
There is no doubt that adding new content is good. But, of course, we don’t forget about modifying the existing one. In particular, some big changes were made to the item balance. For example, we’ve added absolutely new parameters such as reload speed for weapons and cooldown speed for abilities. We changed the damage reduction formula improving the combat system. Damage resistance parameters which used to be the bonuses now are the armor parameters, and it will have the serious impact on the crafting system. We’ve also put a serious role behind the character speed parameter as it will affect the battle tactics and lead to choosing the equipment of a certain weight.


Equipment
Character abilities are gradually expanding, and the newly updated Project Genom will include shotguns and sniper rifles.We will also introduce the exoskeletons enhancing each player’s combat potential.

In addition to new ranged weapons, we will at last please the fans of head-on collisions and melee. In the new game version, Blades and Glaives will surely compete in the battlefield.


Conclusion
We are very happy to see how active our community is, and we are glad that you share your ideas, suggestions or criticism. The project lives in spite of everything and develops on a new level, although there is still so much to be done. We believe our top priority is to fulfill all the promises made during the whole project development. We are grateful to all who trust us and waits for the project to be done as much as we do.

We inform anyone who would like to support the development on about the latest discounts in Steam Store.
http://store.steampowered.com/app/389040/
Some extra attention should be given to one question often asked by the concerned players: how will the so-called ‘Google tax’ impact the prices. The answer is in no way. We won’t change the game price for players from Russia or any other country due to the additional 18% tax.

Good luck and see you in the world of Project Genom!

About This Game

Sci-fi MMORPG Project Genom is an online game in which you will join the human race in their struggle for survival. When the humankind destroyed their home planet, it has found a new home and a seemingly happy life on Avalon. But people were not the only ones to set sights on these lands. Why was this planet so attractive for a mysterious race of Almer? The more advanced, stronger and more united, they win all battles against human forces on all fronts. It would seem that there is no hope, but new time always gives the world new heroes. Become one of them! Protect your race and its ideals, and feel absolutely new power given to humankind by the Project Genom!

Features:
  • Non-target combat system.
    This system makes all combats truly intense and dynamic, allowing you to build your own combat tactics.
  • Character development.
    In Project Genom, there are no classes and subclasses, but you have dozens of development trees with hundreds of abilities in each, allowing to create a truly unique character. Whether to unlock the potential of the human body, to undergo mutations, to synthesize the body with inorganic tissue, or to create a completely unique hybrid? It's all up to you!
  • Open World.
    The huge responsive Universe with dozens of planets and areas in which anyone can find their place.
  • Transport.
    The world of Project Genom stretches for many miles, which means traveling is much more comfortable than going on foot. There is a wide variety of vehicles at your disposal: fast and maneuverable quad bike, powerful and secure buggy, glider hovering the surface, wings allowing you to fly, or even mounts. And this just starts the list.
  • Pets.
    Those who are not so willing to build up a team, it is still possible to have a partner. It can be a robot or a wild animal that you took a shine to during travels. Pets, as well as transport, can be upgraded, modified and trained to unlock new unique skills. A faithful companion is not only a pleasant decor but is also able to support the player in combat.
  • Special equipment.
    The game provides players with unique high-tech equipment, which is very difficult to get. Exoskeletons, organic coatings, manipulators — all designed to perform particularly difficult tasks. This equipment also has its own development tree and can be upgraded.

  • Property.
    Each player will be able to build one's own personal cabin. The property can become the pride of its owner, as it can be used to display collections of weapons, equipment, pets and rare artifacts. The huge hangar is perfect place for setting special equipment and transportation service stations, managing the staff, as well as building your own spaceship.
  • Space.
    When you build up your own team on your board, you will be able to travel to other planets and discover new worlds. Be at the helm and fly wherever you'd like to! Project Genom's Universe is huge, and it will expand in course of time, so to explore this world you will need a fine space vessel and a loyal crew.
  • Crafting system.
    A vast variety of resources allows you to create weapons, armor, medicines and other game items, discovering different combinations of materials. Using the same pattern, you can create the desired item from gold, tungsten, steel or titanium, having completely different final characteristics.
  • Game balance.
    In the world of Project Genom, nobody will be able to gain advantage for real money. Everything players can use is associated with skills that develop when a player use abilities or when something is done. If you see a developed character, it was done by one's own efforts.
