Ge.ne.sis is a story-driven RPG utilizing turn-based strategic combat and an upgrade system allowing players to customize their characters in any way. Each of three main playable characters can receive up to two powerful beings, each with unique abilities, that can be summoned in battle to help in difficult situations. Additionally, each main character receives a unique set of spells and skills as they level up, while being able to choose three "Perks" as passive bonuses to further enhance their combat abilities.

If you like a challenging and unique gameplay, you may find this enjoyable. Thank you for the support!

There is is an odd bug. If you your space bar keys is hold-down when you click on the control buttons, all action phase will be skiped. I haven't found a way to fix this yet but if it happen, try to press your spacebar to make sure it is not stucked. Also, you can try to close the browser and restart it.

Sorry for the issue and I hope you can continue to enjoy it!

After 5 years, I finally now know what the dots mean.
Gelyan, Neraine, and Sisily. Ouchie!
Solid game regardless :)

Love the artwork. Very different, enchanting, and appealing.
Not thrilled with the game play:
1) movement has 2 forms, 1 where you can move left / right, and 1 where you're in combat mode, only if you actually get into combat, it changes modes yet again. This is a bit jarring, and hurts the ability to suspend disbelief and feel immersed in the game.
2) Having a party member be a card that gets played to get them into the battle seems a bit odd.
There is no real explanation for why they are cards, and others are not?
3) Not clear why there is punctuation in the middle of the name of the game?

Overall, if not for the fantastic artwork, this game would be forgettable. With the artwork: I kinda like it.

Is there a soundtrack? I LOVE the music.

It's been a few years since I've played this game and every now and then I come back to play it when I have the time. There's a beautiful whimsical charm to it and the OST is pretty darn good and matches the magical/whimsical vibe really, really well. The battle system is pretty challenging, which is fun. The guide is really helpful for when I got stuck too. I've also fallen in love with the characters and their quirkiness. The plot itself is pretty interesting and really makes you want more.

Overall, great game and I hope to see more!

I think the biggest problem is the chance to save. The battles are difficult enough that I've ended up playing some of the tougher ones enough times over in an attempt to win that I've stopped playing the game after that session to take a break or because I don't have any time to continue. The fighting system itself is actually pretty addictive, and what made me keep playing, so that somewhat solves the issue of battles being so difficult.

However, because of the toughness there really needs to be an opportunity to save after EVERY battle. And, due to the same issues, there should really be a sign of where the next battle is going to take place, so players know which direction is a safe one to find a save point. When it comes to the harder fights I imagine not everyone has the time to beat a battle, since multiple attempts are often required, and then continue on for another couple of fights.
I've found myself enjoying the game less because of being thrust into another fight when I wanted to save my game and stop playing for the time being, so I can come back to it refreshed and able to enjoy it properly the next time.

Aside from that (and some serious lag in Firefox at least, even when the quality is on low and the sprites are small), I'm thoroughly enjoying this game!
