Project Genesis Reveals Twitch Drops

I played an earlier build and it is an interesting mix of ship combat and FPS. I am curious to see the new stuff.



Seattle, July 17 2020 – Starting today, Project Genesis, a team based space combat & FPS genre mash up, will let viewers of Project Genesis streams on Twitch earn a chance to receive a free Early Access Steam key.


A sci-fi online multiplayer game, Project Genesis merges frenetic space combat in battle craft with close quarters skirmishes in first person using an unusual, but oddly gratifying, “breach and board” mechanic. The game draws gameplay inspiration from titles like Star Wars Battlefront II (2005), where players can play in two game modes at the same time depending on their preference of play: FPS or space combat. Once a giant capital ship is targeted for infiltration in space, players can use their battle craft to breach a cruiser’s hull and fight inside aboard decks in FPS mode, completing high-risk high-reward objectives. The opposing team must consider the attack strategies and counter accordingly.


“We’re still in the very early stages of development.” said Terry Hammer, Producer of Project Genesis at 8 Circuit Studios. “But, if you’re looking for a chance to play an indie game that aspires to bring two types of players together, space jockeys and boots on the ground strike teams, Project Genesis might be just what you’re looking for.”


To earn your Steam key, simply create an account on the Project Genesis website and link your Twitch account. Then watch your favorite Streamer play Project Genesis for a minimum of 60 minutes when they have drops enabled.


“Dropping Steam keys via Twitch is only the first step for us.” continued Hammer, “Twitch allows us to extend the gameplay experience to streaming audiences and add a ton of extra value for streamers who are interested in growing with us.”


If you are a streamer and would like to participate in the drop program, or you would like more detailed instructions, visit the title’s Steam guide page for additional information.


The Steam key drop program will run until August 31st, 2020.


Project Genesis Steam Early Access

The Project Genesis team regularly updates their Early Access builds for new players and community members. The newest update releasing today, called Enceladus, has a large number of features that should drastically improve the gameplay experience for players:


  • Twitch drop system for free Early Access Steam keys
  • Triple the available weapon count for avatars and battle craft
  • New asymmetrical Attack/Defend game mode
  • Expanded map sizes and environment rescaling
  • Added deployables for those more interested in support roles
  • New DLC Founders Pack for exclusive in-game items like badges and palettes


Project Genesis is scheduled for final release on Windows/PC some time in late 2020. The team will also be working to release on Playstation and Xbox after.
