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?

“Now the game has been completely reborn! After entering Early Access, the project faced a number of serious shocks and insurmountable circumstances. We were forced to start the project from scratch. However, together with our amazing community of players who did not leave us even in the worst of times, we were able to overcome everything, and now Project Genom is entering a new level!

The game code was completely rewritten, which made the project more stable and easy to expand. The seamless world has expanded to 100 square kilometers and completely transformed. The character controller and animations were redesigned. We’ve expanded the variety of armor and weapons. The game has new enemies and bosses, a new interface, new tasks, customization, and also the change of time of day.

The game lacks many mechanics, there are flaws and bugs, but Project Genom is alive and increasing the pace of development, trying to fulfill all the promises to those who trusted us.”

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!”

News

Hi everyone!

It is time for some news about the exact state of the project.
As you know, in recent months the project has not received any major updates, and there are serious reasons for this: after restarting the game in May, many users faced some technical issues (again) that we didn’t manage to solve quickly. We searched for many ways to solve them and found one that seemed to fully meet our needs — a technology from Improbable (https://improbable.io/) called SpatialOS.

Recently, poor sales of Project Genom fell to almost zero (and it’s obvious why): from August 1 to November 1, we sold 182 copies of the game, about 20% of which was returned under the Steam return program. The current income is less than $500 per month, taking into account the fact that we need to support at least 2 database servers (for two regions) and 3 servers with the game world, each of which costs about $ 100 per month (our hosting ipserver, inquisitive ones can find the price for the USA and Russia locations).





In the past months, we have been searching for additional funds to transfer the game to a new technology. Now we are starting another redesign of Project Genom, with SpatialOS technology.

In the near future, sales of the current version of the game will be temporarily suspended. In December, we will restrict access to the game servers. In this regard, we will think about how to compensate players for this pause with in-game content after the release of a stable version of the game. We apologize for the temporary inconvenience and long wait. We’d like to emphasize that the game is not going to end at this and its development still continues. We will report the news on our progress.

Despite the technical issues, the development of the visual part of Project Genom continues. For example, we’ve made a lot of unique animations for enemies in the game.

Stage

For the moment, the game is in its Alpha stage, so we strongly do not recommend buying it if you expect a full-fledged finished project.

After entering Early Access, Project Genom did not receive any updates due to serious circumstances that complicated its development. For the moment, with the support of our players, we were able to overcome all difficulties and bring the project to a completely new level of quality, while completely reworking it. In the game you will find a hundred square kilometers of the renewed world, 10 instances, a change of the time of day, customization, and also new characters, armor, enemies and NPCs, updated artificial intelligence, redesigned tasks and dialogues, initial character skills upgrades, a new interface, and new graphics.

The project will finally get frequent updates and will expand up to the release, but we want to note once again that the game is still in its Alpha stage, so it lacks many mechanics that will be introduced in the game gradually. The game was completely redesigned, which eliminated all previous bugs, but added new ones. For now, please do not consider the game as a full-fledged project. Before the game officially enters the Beta stage, you will face some bugs, problems with optimization, and wipes. By purchasing the game now you support the development and have the opportunity to see its early stages. Therefore, please make this purchase with conscious.
