Developer Dead Shark Triplepunch Launches Epigenesis?Winner of Epic Games? Make Something Unreal 2013 and
Swedish Game Awards in 2013?on Steam Today

KARLSHAMN, Sweden?Aug. 1, 2014?The developers with the best name ever, Dead Shark Triplepunch, announced their award-winning, online multiplayer arena sports game Epigenesis is now available for PC on Steam for $9.99: http://store.steampowered.com/app/244590/ with a 15% launch discount this week. Epigenesis isa futuristic FPS ball game in which two sides are locked in an epic, 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. Players capture and construct a node system from their goal post to their opponents?. If that doesn?t happen by the time the clock reaches zero, the team with the most goals wins!

Space. Lasers. Genetically-modified super plants. If you need more convincing, Epigenesis features include:

Sci-Fi Online Multiplayer Arena: So hot right now! Play a futuristic ball game for world domination in a 5-on-5 game on top of towers and platforms
Fast-paced, high-altitude action: Equipped with jumping jets, players will have to time their jumps on platforms or suffer steep falls
Non-lethal combat with surgical precision: Weapons are non-lethal, force-based gear. Push opponents down from the platforms and boost teammates towards the goal
Crazy plants with awesome abilities: After scoring a goal, players get genetically modified super seeds (of course!) that grant passive stat-boosts for the player and teammates
