Sci-fi shooter Project Genom begins alpha testing

Why can’t intergalactic colonization ever go smoothly? There always seems to be at least one continent-shattering war that has to happen before the first McSpaceDonalds is established. We guess that’s part of the tradition, which is why we’re sure that Project Genom will be a great instruction manual for when the human race ever does start populating the galaxy.

The sci-fi shooter began its closed alpha test today in anticipation for a June release on Steam. Project Genom takes place on the planet of Avalon where human colonists and a territorial alien race are struggling over land rights. The game just upgraded to the Unreal Engine 4 engine and features a flexible class creation system, an in-depth economy, “advanced” PvP, and pets.

You can watch an early gameplay video and teaser trailer of Project Genom after the break!

CazCore Dope_Danny Assuming he means open world sci-fi shooters (since sci-fi shooters covers any FPS with a laser gun) there is Repopulation, Survarium (whenever free play gets added), Planet Side 2, and I guess you could count Elite: Dangerous and Star Citizen. But in no way is this genre as over saturated as the zombie survivor (you don’t have indie developers making Repopulation clones at the same rate they make DayZ clones).

Khalith The joke is on Firefall, I think. >->

Anyone else getting a Firefall vibe from this game? Hope their enemy AI isn’t nearly as boring, and that running around the map is actually entertaining (though, I’ll admit I do love the LGVs in Firefall).

this is how Repopulation should look like. Unfortunately it does not and probably won’t.

I know they are using Unreal 4 engine, but I am wondering what kind of hitbox system they are going to have setup for targeting.

Funny story about Genom, the creator of the site actually sent blind facebook requests to nearly everyone that’s commented recently on the Firefall facebook page (myself included) on April 1st. I actually thought it was an april fool’s joke related to Firefall, but nope, it’s a legit game, good to see.

Color me intrigued, one I’ll have to keep my eye on.  The fact that it’s suppose to “release” in june on steam, yet they are just now starting alpha testing… that raises a flag or two…
