Project Genom doubles its world size and improves character progression

    
11

In-development sci-fi MMO Project Genom released a big patch this week. The inconspicuously named 0.6 update, studio NeuronHaze says, represents big changes to “the bulk of the game content” and “significally change[s]” to game systems.

“The world itself has doubled, one plot location added, and the old locations are gradually acquiring their final form (you will see new models, design and light). There are new quests and mechanics for the character and vehicles. Most quests have been completely redesigned, and now have a variety of solutions. But the most delicious, what all have been waiting for – the new system of character progression, it is just beginning its formation, but now we can see how the character will improve their skills.”

The game was originally planned for Steam early access in May, but the studio now says that launch is “scheduled for later this year.”

NeuronHaze also recently announced a Kickstarter for its other game, Vigor Roads.

despite all the additions and changes, the game is much more broken for me now. Starting a new character, I cant get out of the very first room. Once i unintentionally no-clipped through the door, but everything on the other side wasnt something I could interact with.

Oh well, looks like ill have to wait for more patches.

I made the right decision to not purchase a founder program because they already start another game without even get out of the initial alpha testing on this.
Some recent disappointments made me very suspicious about indie,early access and crowdfunded MMOs and still no completed projects are there to prove me that I’m wrong.
I’ts kinda sad because I was really looking forward for this game but seeing after months of payed alpha that the even decided what core gameplay should have leads me to think at another disaster like Defiance and Firefall.

FunkyCold I think the hook for this one is you can change your DNA for new abilities and such.

FunkyCold Sci-fi sandbox. I can’t remember if it’s post-apocalypse or futuristic sci-fi, though. That’s about all I know.

Because I’m too lazy to research it myself: What type of game is this?
