Genesis Alpha One Deluxe Edition is a roguelike FPS sci-fi action role-playing game from 2020 that is currently free on GOG. Genesis Alpha One was developed by Radiation Blue and published by Team17. It takes place in the future where humanity is dying off and corporations have come up with the Genesis Program as a means to save it. Players will encounter randomly created galaxies where they can explore planets, and encounter asteroid fields and pirates while trying to survive alien infestations.

In a near future ravaged by wars, corrupt regimes, and devastating pollution, influential corporations have created the Genesis program in a last-ditch attempt to save humanity.

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.

The deluxe edition includes an art book, soundtrack, and DLC. There are 3 difficulty levels along with the ability to customize difficulty settings. Players will need to fend off alien infestations before they spread amongst the crew and ship. Artifacts from one playthrough can be carried over into another in order to unlock new corporations. The crew can be expanded via cloning but must be sustained through the gathering of resources by exploring planets. Ships are customizable by combining and upgrading modules which include crew quarters, workshops, hangars, greenhouses, and cloning labs.

Those interested should grab it soon as the giveaway ends on October 30. Genesis Alpha One has an ESRB rating of Mature 17+ for violence, blood and gore, and language.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
