New Sci-Fi Title Genesis Alpha One Announced, Combines FPS and Base Building

Publisher Team17 has announced its partnership with German indie developer, Radiation Blue, to publish the studio’s first project – a Sci-Fi title called Genesis Alpha One. You can check out a trailer above.

In a press release, we’re told that the game combines “a unique mix of roguelike, FPS, base building and survival elements.” Here’s a brief synopsis:

In a near future ravaged by wars; corrupt regimes and global capitalism left unchecked have resulted in natural resource over-exploitation and pollution devastating the planet. Societies are collapsing. Supported by Earth’s remaining governments, four influential corporations initiate the Genesis program.

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.

Radiation Blue comprises of developers who’ve worked on titles such as Hitman: Blood Money, Hitman: Contracts, Velvet Assassin, Spec Ops: The Line, SpellForce 2: Shadow Wars, SpellForce 3 and The Settlers.

Genesis Alpha One is in development for consoles and PC. A release date and specific platforms have yet to be announced.
