Team17 has announced a partnership with Radiation Blue to publish their game, Genesis Alpha One.
Radiation Blue is an indie developer formed by members whose credits include games like Hitman: Blood Money, Hitman: Contracts, Velvet Assassin, Spec Ops: The Line, among others.
Radiation Blue’s first game is Genesis Alpha One, a sci-fi FPS with survival, base building and resource management elements that puts you in the role of an interstellar pioneer tasked with saving humankind from extinction.
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.
With the announcement of their partnership, Team17’s CEO, Debbie Bestwick, offered a few words about the new studio:
“Radiation Blue are an exciting new studio made up of incredibly talented individuals, each with a great track record in AAA games development. Genesis Alpha One offers gamers a unique blend of genres in a stunning sci-fi setting and we are thrilled to be able to help them on their journey.”
Genesis Alpha One is being developed for PC and consoles with Unreal Engine 4 and is currently on pre alpha stage of development.
