Save Humanity from Extinction in Genesis: Alpha One

Discover planets, harvest resources, and battle alien foes with a crew of clones.

Hey PlayStation fans, it’s Sascha and Jens here from Radiation Blue! We are happy today to show off our latest trailer for our debut title Genesis: Alpha One. In case you don’t know much about it allow us to provide a few more details.

Genesis: Alpha One is a revolutionary mix of roguelike, FPS, base building and survival that puts you in the role of an interstellar pioneer.

Genesis: Alpha One

Genesis: Alpha OneGenesis: Alpha One

As the Captain of a Genesis starship, you journey into uncharted space on the ultimate mission: find new homes for humanity’s DNA and save the species from extinction. To do this you will need to build and manage your spaceship, discover planets and harvest resources from them, clone new crew members, and create new lifeforms to populate new worlds… and of course defend yourself from terrifying alien infestations on your ship! Nobody said saving humanity would be easy.

We are really excited to share with you today that while exploring the universe you will not be confined to the starship that you call home, but will be able to take your harvester down to planets that you discover on your travels.

When you touch down on these previously undiscovered planets your trusty crew of clones will set about mining for resources that you need to expand your ship. You can either help them out or explore for artifacts, new weapons, blueprints and transmissions all of which will help you in your quest. You may also have to defend yourself and your crew from any hostile alien life forms that populate the planet. Be careful not to take back any unwanted passengers back to your starship!

We would love to hear what you think about Genesis, and we look forward to showing you more about the game between now and launch later this year!

  • This game looks good and incredibly interesting. I always love FPS games and the roguelike mix seems like a smart fit. Definitely going to be keeping an eye on this one.

  • If this plays as good as it looks can’t wait.

  • THis game looks awesome I love the concept. It it feels good to play then this will get a ton of my time

  • Does this game have a multiplayer component? If so, is it local or online?

  • online component? also I’d like the opportunity to play in third person, I dont understand why these FPS don’t include 3rd person, Id play more if that was an option. I like to go FP when sniping or in certain situations

    • I’m the same as you. I would buy so many more games if they ever had a third-person option. First person is not as immersive to me, as it makes me feel like I’m playing as myself rather than the character in the game.

      Genesis: Alpha One is an offline singleplayer game, only playable in 1st person at this time. We like to think that not being able to see the aliens creep up from behind adds an extra kick to the experience!

  • Will this game be PS4 Pro Enhanced at all? Thank you.

  • This looks like it would be an amazing co op game, if it isn’t online, can you guys look into it? I know it’s a tall order but this looks like exactly what my friends and I would like to play for a few months but solo only games don’t have the long lasting appeal of co op stuff.

    • Sascha Jungnickel

      The game is currently tailored to be a singleplayer experience. That being said, in terms of post-launch updates we’re not ruling out any potential features at this time.

  • The game looks awesome. Reminds me of Dead Space sort of… That’s a game that should be remastered or come out with a new story line. Still Alpha looks great, can’t wait to try it out.

  • Sounds like a smaller scale more meaningful scarier yet exciting example of no man’s sky with replay ability?

    Thoughts:
    Must include VR mode. Day one purchase for me.

  • Game looks really good tbh, seems like it will fill my dead space void, if there’s no multiplayer i hope there are plans for it in the future

    • Sascha Jungnickel

      No plans for any kind of multiplayer at this time, but nothing is ruled out for post-launch updates just yet!

  • Looks and sounds really great and games these days are not about space Lol but hope your game change that. But very awesome game from the video good luck making the game

  • Also can you see if you can make this a offline game too that don’t need wifi Because most of the time I have no wifi and see if you can add a third person cam but I don’t really care I just like it better in third person

    • Sascha Jungnickel

      No internet connection is required to play Genesis: Alpha One. It’s an offline singleplayer game :)

  • I sound like a broken record, but PSVR support would be amazing… :D

  • Looks terrific, finally my telepathy reached a developer

  • Co-op? Please?

  • Ya

  • Daang this looks interesting…..Like a woman with glasses …..cant really tell if she is hawt until she lets her hair down and takes of those glasses….Time will tell….

  • The only questions I have are: Is it going to be multiplayer, and when’s it realeasing!?

    • Sascha Jungnickel

      There are currently no plans for any kind of multiplayer. It will be available sometime this summer!

  • Looks fantastic. To the devs, please play FTL, and please never make it as semi-impossible as FTL; it’s just a lazy dev trick to make up for a short game. I can’t wait to support your hard work.

    • Sascha Jungnickel

      We definitely want to challenge our players without making things unfair. Game balance can be tricky, but we’re doing our best to ensure a fun experience for everyone!

  • I’ll love it,As long as this game doesn’t follow the same path that No Man’s Sky™️ did. Please promise us it doesn’t!

    • Sascha Jungnickel

      The only path we’re following is our own. Hopefully you’ll enjoy the game at the end of the road!

  • I just watched the trailer and now understand every comment above.
    1. Game looks awesome!
    Something you I could spend a LOT of time with. Love the idea of going to space instead of just inhabiting an unknown world full of beasties. That alone could make this game infinitely scalable as DLC. This would be exponentially true if it could be be also played in a co-op game mode! (Pretty lonely in space as the only sentient with an AI to work with)
    2. Third person and first person (depending on current situation) would be awesome!
    3. FTL travel and non-FTL travel or wormholes (vocally pull up via the AI as a tunnel map?) (like fast travel in Witcher and many other games) with associated dangers inherent in both modes? Encountering other vessels in non-FTL travel?
    4. Additional sentients that are not simply cannon fodder, that aid or nefariously undermine the Ex-Sol explorers as they expand outwards
    5. Some free fun future features and payable DLC could eventually make this game limitless. First you need to “set the hook” by making the initial release kick ass and let everyone know up front what your vision is.

    • Sascha Jungnickel

      First off, thank you for the kind words! We’ll most definitely be looking at player feedback and requests for post-launch updates, so we can create the best possible experience for everyone!

      Regarding your travels through space, you set the course yourself. From a terminal on the starship’s Bridge, you will see a full map of whatever has been created for your game (this is all procedurally generated). All the places you can travel to will have a varying number of things to explore, and will be of varying danger levels, some including asteroid fields and the like that could quite easily destroy parts of your ship if you’re not careful. At no point do you control the ship yourself, however. The same goes for planetary landings.

  • I can see where all the requests for a Co-op are coming from I for one would definitely feel more at ease on a harvesting mission if the was someone I could leave to babysit the miners while I explored for POI.

  • Two more things:
    Will there be (at launch or later release) friendly aliens to maybe form a multi species crew?
    Is there any way to apply/ sign up to be a beta tester? Please? LOL

    • Sascha Jungnickel

      An important feature of Genesis: Alpha One is the ability to clone your own crew using a combination of base human DNA, and whatever alien DNA you’ve discovered at the time. As you kill aliens you will be able to harvest DNA samples, and once you’ve collected enough samples, you can use said DNA in your cloning, creating the exact crew you desire. Your crew can be all one race, or a mix of races; that’s entirely up to you. As you die, one of your other crew members will be promoted captain, and you’ll continue playing as them. Should this replacement captain be of a different alien race, this can affect your gameplay experience. We don’t want to give away just yet what that means though.

  • Looks great.when’s it going to be released?
