Weapons Check - Reloading

Hey everyone,

A quick post to address a couple of questions around reloading in Genesis Alpha One. In essence, no reload mechanic is present. However, ammo is finite and like other resources on your ship, it will have to be created through the recovery of the appropriate materials. These can be obtained either through mining on alien planets or through materials harvested by your tractor beam. If you’re lucky, downed hostiles may drop some or a cache might be found at crash sites.

As soon as you have the resources, ammo can be created in the workshop and grabbed from the nearest weapon rack, either on your ship or on the Harvester while planet-side. Just make sure you check you have enough ammo before embarking on any exploratory journey, you don’t know what you will find out there!

The Flashlight - Help or Hindrance?

Hey all,

I'm the latest captain to join the crew and just wanted to share another quick tip with you and that’s in regard to the flashlight, which can be turned on and off with R3 or with the F button on a keyboard. While your trusty ray of light will be key when navigating the maintenance tunnels to snuff out an infestation or when exploring hostile alien planets at night time, it can also be a hindrance.

Some of the planets you will be visiting are shrouded in a dense fog that will refract your light and impair visibility. As such, there will be an increased element of risk the further your stray away from the safety and illumination of your ship, so make sure what you’re looking to mine or locate in the outer reaches of the area is worth it!

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.
