> Game Summary
> Three thousand years in the distant future after what was believed to be
> the arrival of "The Savior," mankind has carved a bloody path across the
> known Universe. Considering themselves a divine race and beyond reproach
> as a species, they view all alien races as inferior. Those that do not
> bend and acknowledge the infinite superiority of the Human genome are
> subsequently punished or simply destroyed. The dominion of the Human
> race was ensured by Organids - genetically designed organic machines,
> easily adaptable to any enemy strategy.
> Take on the role of Captain Iconah, a battle-hardened fleet commander
> and a brilliant genetic designer, as you control a fleet of fully
> customizable organic ships in an attempt to conquer the last region of
> the galaxy: the Universal Heart, an enigmatic entity that spawned all
> life and matter in the universe. At least that's what the Human's
> believe...
> Take command and lead your fleet to a glorious destiny and ensure the
> survival of mankind.
> Genesis Rising is developed by Metamorf Studios. The title has an ESRB
> rating of 'T' for Teen in North America. For further information, please
