The developers with the best name ever, Dead Shark Triplepunch, announced their award-winning, online multiplayer arena sports game Epigenesis is now available for PC on Steam for $9.99: http://store.steampowered.com/app/244590/ with a 15% launch discount. Epigenesis is a futuristic FPS ball game in which two sides are locked in an epic, never-ending fight for world-domination by playing ball.
In this non-lethal ballgame of the future, players leap across platforms suspended high up in the air trying to get a ball located in the middle of the arena and score goals against their opponents. Each player carries a gravity cannon capable of pushing enemies (and friends) down from the heights of the arena. When a player scores, he receives a genetically modified super-seed and gets the opportunity to plant it onto a platform to capture it. Players capture and construct a node system from their goal post to their opponents’. If that doesn’t happen by the time the clock reaches zero, the team with the most goals wins!
Space. Lasers. Genetically-modified super plants. If you need more convincing, Epigenesis features include:
· Sci-Fi Online Multiplayer Arena: So hot right now! Play a futuristic ball game for world domination in a 5-on-5 game on top of towers and platforms
· Fast-paced, high-altitude action: Equipped with jumping jets, players will have to time their jumps on platforms or suffer steep falls
· Non-lethal combat with surgical precision: Weapons are non-lethal, force-based gear. Push opponents down from the platforms and boost teammates towards the goal
· Crazy plants with awesome abilities: After scoring a goal, players get genetically modified super seeds (of course!) that grant passive stat-boosts for the player and teammates
