After eight years of development and two name changes, Geneshift has finally launched on Steam Early Access. The Grand Theft Auto 2-inspired top-down shooter provides players with an intense, top-down shooter experience either alone or with up to 3 friends in the game’s campaign mode or in an online-only 5v5 competitive multiplayer experience. In addition to running around and shooting at things, players can make use of “mutant skills” that can give them a leg up on the battlefield and vehicles that can hold multiple players.
Nik Nak Studios founder Ben Johnson had the following to say about the announcement.
“When I started working on Geneshift all those years ago, I had no idea I’d still be going eight years later. But the community kept coming up with amazing new ideas. Their feedback has been essential to Geneshift’s development, and I can’t wait to finally share our creation with a larger audience!”
Geneshift is now available on Steam Early Access for $9.99, temporarily discounted to $7.99 for the week of release.
