Geneforge 1 - Mutagen

Spiderweb Software have released a new trailer for their upcoming RPG, Geneforge 1 – Mutagen, along with a release window of Q1 2021.

Geneforge 1 – Mutagen was successfully Kickstarted back in March 2020, and promises to be a major remastering of the first game from Spiderweb’s famed Geneforge series. It will launch Q1 2021 for Windows PC, Mac (both via Steam, and Spiderweb’s official website), and iPad.

Originally released in 2001, Geneforge is an isometric tactical RPG that tells the story of the Shapers- a secretive organization of wizards with the power to create life. The Shapers control the world, but now their own creations wish to rebel against them.

The game offers a high degree of freedom in how players can craft their character, and shape the story by crushing or befriending rival factions. You can find the new trailer below.

You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:

Geneforge 1 – Mutagen is a unique, truly open-ended fantasy adventure in a strange, new world. You are one of the Shapers, wizards with the awesome power to create life. Want a tool, a trap, an army? You summon it into existence. You create mighty beasts, and they totally obey you. Usually.

But now? Your creations want to rebel. Will you crush them? Or help them?

Geneforge 1 – Mutagen offers unmatched freedom in how you play. Use magic or your deadly pets to crush your enemies. Or, use trickery, diplomacy, and stealth to win the game without ever attacking a foe. Choose between a host of rival factions or just destroy everything. Defeat the final boss, or switch sides and join him. Fight alone with blades, missiles, or magic, or create your own army of custom-made mutant monsters.

Geneforge is an epic fantasy adventure with over eighty zones to explore and 50+ hours of gameplay. Choose from dozens of skills, abilities, and pets to reach a vast array of different endings. The coming rebellion will scorch your continent. Who will win? It will be up to you.
