Description

Geneshift is a top-down shooter bursting with brutal gunplay and insane vehicle action. Unlock tactical mutant skills and outplay your friends in fast-paced online combat. Then coordinate your mutant attacks to defeat the rebel scientists and their zombie army.

History

Geneshift began as a hobby project way back in 2008 and was first shared online in June 2009 under the name of Subvein. As the game evolved the name was changed to Mutant Factions and then to the final name of Geneshift. It continued development based on the feedback of a loyal fanbase for the next few years until being Greenlit in 2014. At that point the developer - Ben Johnson of Nik Nak Studios - decided to quit his job and take the game full-time. Sydney was very expensive however, so he quit his job, packed his bags and took his laptop on a coding adventure around the world! Geneshift was most recently developed in Peru, and will be released on Steam in Q1 2017!
