What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access lets us provide exclusive DLC content to players who support Project Genesis during development by purchasing the game. It also provides us with invaluable feedback from players who love contributing to the creation of a game that fuses space combat with first person shooter mechanics.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are currently targeting late Summer 2023 for general access.”

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

“Project Genesis is slated for full release as FREE-TO-PLAY. However, Early Access players can support the development of Project Genesis through game purchase and receive exclusive DLC content unavailable to general access players.

Upon full release, Project Genesis is slated for release as free-to-play, with premium cosmetic items and additional lore themed game modes funding the live service.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game’s core control features and combat are already in place and the current version is fully playable with PVP 3 game modes and 2 PVE modes to get used to the game mechanics. The game is stable and performant with online multiplayer battles tested regularly with up to 16 players.”

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

“Project Genesis is slated for release FREE-TO-PLAY, with premium cosmetic items and additional lore themed game modes funding the live service. We use small progressions as a way to keep the game feeling purposeful, and legendary items meaningful, not as a way to segregate or monetize players through grind.”

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

“We already have a team devoted to managing our community partnerships, regularly reporting plans and status, organizing playtests and feedback sessions, and generally being model members themselves. We value the feedback that our community provides us and work to incorporate community insights and ideas into the development of Project Genesis. Additionally, we currently delegate profile and in-game badges for Ambassadors, Ace Pilots, Test Pilots, and Creators.”

Project Genesis is a sci-fi PVP shooter that fuses two types of gameplay:

1. Ship to ship combat
2. FPS close-quarter battles

All made possible via one key game mechanic: THE BREACH AND BOARD SEQUENCE

Designed with the FPS player in mind, space combat is played in third-person with free look targeting:

- Steer the ship and freely aim weapons at targets

The flight model is simple and designed without complicated flight controls. Weapons are easy to use, targeting and HUD are built to be intuitive and clear by borrowing from FPS industry standards.

The FPS mode uses standard WASD controls common in FPS combat games. The emphasis in Project Genesis is seamlessly merging two genres without having to adjust to new control configurations and viewing perspectives.

Across 3rd person space combat, and FPS modes, the controls use a common paradigm:

- HP: Hull or Health, the primary damage resource
- Energy (E): the consumable resource for shields, weapons, and abilities
- Two main weapons: a primary and a secondary
- Abilities, Utilities: passive and active

Spacecraft and avatar designs set up familiar relationships
- Tank
- Support

With multiple levers at play…
- Boost and sprint
- Shields
- Recharge and cell capacities
- Weapon loadouts
- Countermeasures
- Abilities and utilities
- Throw-able ordinance
…the rest is dominating with weaponized support craft in space.
