Epigenesis is a multiplayer game for up to ten players in which two teams—armed with force-based, non-lethal weaponry and gravity boots—play a ball game over rooftops. When players score a goal, they gain access to seeds that sprout plants with special abilities that grant players buffs and help them capture the arena from their opponents. The game is set for a Q1 2014 release and is being developed for PC with Unreal Engine 3 by a ten-man strong indie team.
“Epigenesis is a love letter to Quake and Unreal Tournament’s Bombing Run. It’s a combination of the games that we miss from the time when we grew up, and we want to bring that same experience to new players but with a modern twist,” said Michael Levall, project lead for Dead Shark Triplepunch. “Whether you’re an old Quake player who misses the twitchy shooter, or if you’re someone who thinks you know the meaning of the word ‘hectic,’ Epigenesis has something for you.”
