What is Genesis Alpha One about?
Genesis Alpha One (buy now €15.74) is set in a near future plagued by wars, corrupt regimes and devastating pollution. In a last ditch effort to save humanity, major corporations have created the Genesis program. The player takes on the role of the captain of a Genesis starship and travels through uncharted space. You build and manage your own spaceship, mine resources, fight alien plagues and even clone creatures if necessary. It all happens in a vast, randomly generated universe. This is the roguelike facet of the game.
Also, the version of Genesis Alpha One that GOG is giving away is the deluxe edition. In addition to the base game, this also includes the art book, the soundtrack and the Rocket Star Corporation DLC. It has an overall rating of 3.8 out of 5 on GOG, while it has garnered “overall positive” user reviews on Steam. If you’re not expecting too much, it might still be interesting enough to take a look – especially if it’s free. Genesis Alpha One is free on GOG until October 30, 4 p.m. German time. Meanwhile, GOG’s Halloween sale runs until November 3rd.
