Team 17 have announced a new signing to their indie games label, Genesis Alpha One. Genesis Alpha One is the first game from indie developers Radiation Blue, a german outfit comprised of veterans from Hitman: Blood Money, Spec Ops: The Line, The Settlers and the Spellforce series.
Genesis Alpha One is an Unreal Engine 4 game and looks to be combining the FPS genre with base building and survival elements. It’ll release on PC and console and casts the players as the Captain of a Genesis starship, journeying into uncharted space on "the ultimate mission".
“We are very excited to work with Team17 on Genesis Alpha One. We highly appreciate Team17’s passion for games, their transparent developer friendly procedures and of course their exciting portfolio, that we’re now a part of! When we were kids, we enjoyed playing Team17 games such as Alien Breed and Worms. These creative and artistic experiences helped support our decisions to become video games creators. Today, with this partnership, things have come full circle which is incredibly exciting,” said Sascha Jungnickel, Creative Director of Radiation Blue, in a press release.
Debbie Bestwick, MBE, Team17’s CEO added, “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.”
