A New Frontier in Gaming and Technology Awaits as Industry Veterans Pursue the Metaverse with Hybrid First-Person-Shooter Space Combat Game for Windows PC and Consoles
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON (AUGUST 29, 2018) – 8 Circuit Studios — a team of talented gaming industry veterans with over a century of combined experience working at leading publishers such as Nintendo, Microsoft, and Electronic Arts — today unveiled Project Genesis, their grand-scale deep space survival game powered by the Ethereum blockchain. Combining intense FPS gameplay and space combat, Project Genesis has players piloting massive spacefaring machines of destruction and infiltrating their enemies’ ships in the pursuit of galactic domination. Project Genesis is set within a persistent universe that’s part of 8 Circuit Studios’ growing ecosystem based on the concept of the Metaverse — a series of interconnected virtual worlds and experiences without boundaries.
“Project Genesis is going to be a perfect fit for gamers looking for an experience that combines intense first-person shooters with white-knuckle third-person space combat,” said Terry Hammer, Producer, of 8 Circuit Studios. “It’s going to be far more than just a space shooter, we are going to push the whole experience by integrating the Ethereum blockchain – allowing players the ability to carry digital assets they earn and acquire, like ships and weapons, into other games.”
In Project Genesis, players inhabit an A.I. that learns that it must choose between self-sacrifice to save the last vestiges of the human race, or opt for self-determination to embark on its own destiny. This AI’s quest for preservation sets players out into the stars to pilot space cruisers and engage in furious combat that allows them to destroy their enemies using advanced technologies, fortify their ships from damage, and board enemy ships. Once the boarding party lands on the enemy ship, players will enter a first-person perspective as they infiltrate and eradicate enemy forces from the inside out. Destroying control points and clearing the ship gives one control over their enemy’s ship. Capturing ships and completing missions generate payouts to the victor, which take the form of XP, weapons, ammo, and in-game credits.
Founded by gaming industry veterans from multiple leading publishers, 8 Circuit Studios is developing gameplay experiences that merge traditional video games with their Metaverse project. 8 Circuit Studios’ Metaverse will allow them, and their partner developers, to integrate their projects, allowing players to share assets across multiple games by using Blockchain technology. On October 1, 2018, they will be launching a digital token sale for their 8BT tokens, the currency that will power 8 Circuit Studios’ digital Multiverse.
