Team 17 have today announced their intentions to back another up-and-coming developer, this time being Freiburg, Germany-based independent developer Radiation Blue, to publish their upcoming new title, Genesis Alpha One.
This new game is powered by the Unreal Engine 4, is a sci-based game mixing in elements of roguelike, FPS, base building and survival elements on PC and console.
It’s actually the developer’s first game they have created but they are very determined to make it a success, but they have some great developers on board themselves. These developers have worked on games such as Hitman: Blood Money, Hitman: Contracts, Velvet Assassin, Spec Ops: The Line, SpellForce 2: Shadow Wars, SpellForce 3 and The Settlers. Here is an official description for the plot:
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.
Speaking about their excitement for this new game and venture with Team 17, Sascha Jungnickel, Creative Director of Radiation Blue. stated:
We are very excited to work with Team17 on Genesis Alpha One. We highly appreciate Team17’s passion for games, their transparent developer friendly procedures and of course their exciting portfolio, that we’re now a part of! When we were kids, we enjoyed playing Team17 games such as Alien Breed and Worms. These creative and artistic experiences helped support our decisions to become video games creators. Today, with this partnership, things have come full circle which is incredibly exciting
