Genesis Alpha One - Roguelike Trailer

Hi everyone,

We thought we’d share with you our latest trailer looking at the roguelike elements present in Genesis Alpha One. The clones effectively act as your lives. Run out of clones and it’s game over.

When you die, you will carry over all the artefacts that you’ve unlocked in the previous run, meaning your chances at performing a Genesis should hopefully increase.

We’ve also updated the discussions with a Steam release FAQ as a pinned post that we hope you find helpful.

Genesis Alpha One – Release Update

Hi everyone,

Some of you may have seen the announcement regarding Genesis Alpha One at The Game Awards last night but in case you missed it, you can find out more over on

You might be wondering what this announcement means for Steam users and we will be able to update you in the near future but we can confirm that Genesis Alpha One will not be launching on Steam on January 29th 2019. We understand that this will be frustrating to some of you who have supported the game since it was revealed, and we are extremely thankful for all your suggestions and feedback.

The team are still hard at work putting together the final touches and incorporating some great new features into Genesis Alpha One and we hope you continue to be as excited as we are for it. At this time, we are making sure we put everything into realising our fullest vision of the game. As a result, we have suspended work on the playable preview. Again, we understand this might be disappointing, and this was a tough decision to make but we believe this will help Genesis Alpha One get off to the best possible start. Once the game launches, we may be able to reassess the playable preview later down the line.

Thank you for your support, past, present and future and we hope to see you aboard the Genesis soon.

About This Game

In a near future ravaged by wars, corrupt regimes and devastating pollution, influential corporations have created the Genesis program in a last-ditch attempt to save humanity.
As the Captain of a Genesis starship, you journey into uncharted space on the ultimate mission. Build and manage a space vessel, farm resources, deal with terrifying alien infestations, clone creatures and explore a vast, randomly generated universe.

Your goal: Find new homes for humanity’s DNA and save the species from extinction.


Every journey in Genesis Alpha One begins with a huge, randomised galaxy filled with adventure and peril. Discover new planets, encounter asteroid fields, survive hostile encounters as you explore the vastness of space.
Death is permanent so every crew members life matters, and every decision must be carefully considered.


Starting with a small vessel, you’ll have to build and maintain an intergalactic ark by combining dozens of upgradable spaceship modules including crew quarters, workshops, hangars, clone labs and greenhouses.
Using an intuitive building menu, easily snap together the pieces of your ship to tailor it to your playstyle. Develop your vessel and then explore your creation in first person.


Alien infestations can spread quickly, contaminating the ship and crew. It’s imperative to wipe them out before you become overwhelmed and your ship is destroyed!
An arsenal of weapons and defences can be researched to help you fight the alien threat. Unleash Turrets, Force Fields, Laser Blasters, Shotguns, Rifles, Grenade Launchers, Rocket Launchers, Flamethrowers or alien weapons to devastate hostile lifeforms.


As your ship grows, so must your crew. Using ground-breaking cloning technology, your crew will expand to meet the needs of the ship.
Loot DNA samples from the aliens you encounter across the galaxy and splice them with members of your crew to give humanity a chance to prosper with abilities far beyond what was previously imagined.


Roaming the immense universe won’t be possible without gathering resources. Elements such as Iron, Copper, Uranium and Plutonium must be mined from planets and then refined on-board your ship. These will be utilised to build new modules, weapons, clones and tools.
