Epigenesis is an online multiplayer sports/FPS game in which two sides are locked in a never-ending fight for world domination by playing ball.

In this non-lethal ballgame of the future, players leap across platforms suspended high up in the air trying to get a ball located in the middle of the arena and score goals against their opponents. Each player carries a gravity cannon capable of pushing enemies (and friends) down from the heights of the arena.

When a player scores, he receives a genetically modified super-seed and gets the opportunity to plant it onto a platform to capture it. To win the game you must capture towers and construct a node system from your goal post all the way to your opponents' goal post. If this hasn't happened by the time that the clock reaches zero, the team with the most scores win!

Teamwork, tactics and precision is key to win eternal glory in a game of Epigenesis!

"It’s just crazy enough to work, and where it wasn’t crazy enough of its own accord, developer Dead Shark Triplepunch (yes, that’s their real name) just added tornadoes. Done and done."
- Rock Paper Shotgun

"Judges praised Epigenesis for its ingenious concept, engaging gameplay and clever use of a scientific concept inspired by the theme for this year’s competition."

Epigenesis reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Spain
This game would have to be Free to Play and make premium to those who buy it at the time... And put different weapons with different utilities to give more diversity to the game, because if it does not become repetitive. 5/10 (The game itself promises)
Translated by
Microsoft from French
Good game. 2 teams: Omani & Argos must face in an arena where the goal is to recover the ball & to score as much points as possible before the end of the regulatory time! The game makes me think about Smashball. The +:-gameplay-fun-fast download-steam maps-:-graphics-weapon repetition-no player (only 2 empty servers) I put him a 7/10

Early Access Review Epigenesis Is, in my Opinion, a very successful Game. A low Rate Of Violence, because you fight for a Ball and you don't necessarily have to shoot yourself over the Heap. There's not much going on at the moment, of course. German People who bought the Game after it was free on team there are few that may naturally come about through the Early Access or because many find this Game boring. Currently 2 Maps for the SIngleplayer against Bots (in THE SP a maximum of 5 vs. 5) and 4 Arenan in the Multiplayer Server are already online. 5 European, 2 Russian, 1 Asian and a few others. I hope the Game stays so good and happy when People play it with me:D

Another clone of the Unreal Tournament that brings nothing. If anything, an unacceptable graphic poverty in today's times. Lovers of ultra-fast games, who were so successful fifteen years ago, may have some good words for him. The rest can go away forgetting this mondongo where to hit an enemy is more difficult than to find an honest politician. And, yes, other commentators are right to accuse this spawn of being an unplayable piece of crap where you spend most of your time fallinging to the void. Are So subnormal developers who do not realize that any success that may have this m1erda is eclipsed by a style of play that is a pluperfect imbecility? Yes, they are. Them and their parents for having Them. And come hop, and another hop, and again falling, and again reappearing, and again falling into emptiness, and again reappearing. But What kind of nonsense is this? Some people shouldn't be doing video games. Go on, and put the game where you fit, incompetent. Therefore, that at this point there may be people positively valuing this turd, which pulls back five minutes, evidence that there are individuals who do not know what to do with the latest technological pepinaco in which they (or their parents) have thrown the money. Go from this garbage, man, that money costs a lot to win it so you throw it so foolishly.
