Epigenesis Now Available Via Steam Early Access With New Single Player Mode

Dead Shark Triplepunch has revealed their new multiplayer sports/FPS game, entitled Epigenesis, includes a single player mode. The game is now available via Steam Early Access for only $9.99 and will allow players to battle it out against nine different AI opponents in the new mode. Read on.

From the Press Release
Developer Dead Shark Triplepunch today announced Epigenesis, the award-winning online multiplayer sports/FPS ball game of the future, now includes a single player mode for any would-be cybernetic ball players looking for a match with other bots. In single player mode players can create a match with up to nine different AI opponents and practice their cybernetic ball game skills. Epigenesis is an online multiplayer arena sports game in which two sides are locked in an epic, never-ending fight for world-domination by playing ball, and is now in Early Access on Steam for $9.99:

The latest update also includes a new Legacy Arena level that introduces a mineshaft, giving players a height advantage but also exposing them to opponents’ projectiles. Jump pads are hugely important in the Legacy Arena; players can jump higher and use vertical space to their advantage to move faster around the map. However, the newly implemented light bridges provide a way to move around the arena without jumping. Players who still prefer to leap across the level can use smaller platforms that lead to pickups to help dominate their opponents. The arena also brings cover into play, enabling more tactical movement for ball and seed carriers.

Epigenesis won Make Something Unreal Live in 2013 hosted by Epic Games and won 2013 Game of the Year from the Swedish Game Awards. For more information about Epigenesis, please visit the website:

Atari has announced its new online multiplayer game, Minimum. The game is expected to release for PC via Steam as part of their early access program this coming spring. Minimum pits teams of five against each other with craftable weapons and robotic Titan. Ready to learn more? Read on.

From the Press Release
Atari, one of the world's most recognized publishers and producers of interactive entertainment, announced today the third-person, multiplayer online combat game, Minimum, for PC. Minimum will be available for early access spring 2014 on Steam.

Set in a minimalistic stylized universe, Minimum features fast-paced, session-based combat that pits teams of five against each other with powerful, craftable weapons. Each team has their own gigantic robotic Titan that they power up and support to help them fight and destroy the enemy’s base. At the core of Minimum is an elaborate blueprint crafting system where players collect resources to create customized weapons and armor that power-up during kill streaks, enabling skilled warriors and Titans to become deadlier as matches progress.

"Since its founding, Atari has been at the forefront of making creative and engaging games that resonate with the gaming community,” said Fred Chesnais, Chief Executive Officer, Atari, Inc. "Minimum continues on this track by offering unique third-person combat gameplay combined with depth of blueprint crafting that will allow players to compete against each other for hours on end using a multitude of weapons. We’re proud to bring Minimum to Steam and share this exciting game with fans that have eagerly awaited the launch."

Minimum was initially created by TimeGate Studios. Early on, TimeGate and the Atari team engaged into discussions to cooperate on the project. Atari then worked with TimeGate to help extricate Minimum out of the TimeGate bankruptcy and ensure that it would come to fruition. With the further involvement of Human Head Studios, a Madison, Wisc. based developer, Atari will proudly present this new breed of combat and crafting to gamers this spring.

Minimum will be available for early access spring 2014. Fans can visit to pre-register for game updates and receive free bonus in-game items.
