What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I want to bring you Flipside Genesis as early as possible, so that you can enjoy the game during development and provide me with valuable feedback. The game is still in an early form, with lots of features missing, but it is already a lot of fun to play.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Ideally, the game will be finished between 6 months and a year. I plan on releasing weekly updates with constant progress towards the end goal of having a fully featured space combat simulator.”

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

“The following features are planned, roughly in order of priority:
  • A ship configurator for customizing ships.
  • More weapons, as well as armor and other systems.
  • A modular damage system, for damaging individual ship systems
  • New fighters that can be acquired
  • Extended hangar management features
  • Being able to upgrade your hangar facilities
  • More mission types, including epic capital ship battles (tested, but needing some of the above features to be playable)

As is always the case in game development, some of the above features may change dramatically or not even see the light of day.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Right now, the game is a very simple space combat simulator. The player can fly a single ship, with a single weapon type. You cannot configure your ship (yet), and there really isn't anything to spend the credits you earn except for ship repairs. It is early, but I want to "get it out there" and see what people think of the idea.”

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

“My intention is to release the game at the same price once Early Access is complete.”

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

“I am really looking forward to hearing what people think of the game, and ideas they have for its future development. While I do have a list of features I feel are important for the full experience, I am open to any suggestions the community has! Bug reports are also very welcome :).”

Flipside v0.3.2

Hello Flipsiders,

I just pushed up the first of many updates for Flipside Genesis. It's a pretty minor one with a few bug fixes and updates, including:

- Preliminary work towards a refactor of ship subsystems, which will allow system specific damage, upgrading systems, etc.
- General bug fixes, including an issue closing the missions menu and some bad collision geo in the hangar (thanks @pebblegarden).

As always, let me know your thoughts!

Cheers,

GrimFoxJones

Flipside Genesis launched today!

Hey everyone,

RoboGenesis Flipside Genesis launched on Early Access today!

I should have posted this earlier, as it will probably affect a good number of you who were interested in the original game, RoboGenesis. The game is now called "Flipside Genesis" and is pretty much a completely different experience. I took over solo development of the project a few months ago and the original concept was just too much for a single developer.

If the new game looks interesting (it's a single player space shooter), check it out! If not, I apologise for not updating you sooner.

It is early access in the truest definition... many of the planned features aren't in place and the current experience is a bit shallow. I really look forward to working with the players as the game is developed, and I think you will be pleased at how quickly progress is made!

At any rate, thanks for checking out Flipside Genesis and I look forward to hearing your thoughts over the coming months!

Cheers,

GrimFoxJones

About This Game

Congrats, you have just inherited your father's contract space security company! Unfortunately, this is because your father has been missing for months and is presumed deceased. You have a rented hangar full of junk, a rusty old space fighter, and are a week from being out of business. Good luck!

Flipside Genesis is a fun single-player take on the space simulator genre. Fly missions, earn credits, and improve your reputation!

Features:
  • An opinionated AI assistant.
  • A flight model that focuses on bringing back the fun of "space dogfights" rather than pure realism.
  • A single space fighter with a single weapon system.
  • A hangar for you to park your ship in.
  • A mission board for accepting new missions.

Note: While you can use a controller to fly your ship, controllers aren't officially supported yet. We plan to offer full controller support for all menus and in-game functionality soon.

Ongoing Development:

Flipside Genesis was born from a game jam submission, and is very much under continuous development. There are several features in active development, including:
  • In-flight energy and systems management.
  • A selection of different weapons and components that can be attached to your ship.
  • Business management aspects include paying weekly rent and repair costs.
  • A full voice over pass for in-game content.
  • More ships you can purchase and upgrade.
  • New hangar environments, allowing you to store more ships.
  • More weapons and ships systems
  • Manufacturing and R&D upgrades, allowing you to improve your systems over time.

Flipside Genesis is very much in active development. If you like the idea of buying an early version of the game and following along as the game develops, or even contributing ideas and bug reports, this is the game for you!
