About this project

What is Genesis?

Genesis isn’t like any card game you’ve ever seen. With Augmented Reality users experience an addictive skill based real-time battle system. Each character is equipped with a myriad of attacks some reliant on brute force and others on mystic or dark capabilities allowing for a perfect combination of skill, strategy and foresight. If crushing friends in the arena isn’t your preferred option, the game also compensates for the competitive lone-wolf with an elite single player dungeon mode that will test and hone the skills of any avid gamer.

 

 

The Creators

Long Roos and Ryan Neale - We are two 18 years olds who graduated from highschool around 8 months ago. We are the creators behind Genesis Augmented Reality. Genesis will be the first game ever to be released using this unique concept and technology. We, as the creators firmly believe that Augmented Reality is going to become the future of gaming.

Is this a classic TCG?

No, this isn't a typical Trading Card Game. All of the battling is real time, and most importantly, when you purchase characters from this campaign, you will be activating them through our account system via a printed out piece of paper (for now).

Not only does this make the product easier for us to produce, it also makes it significantly cheaper and more accessible for you. This means you'll get access to the magic of the product exponentially quicker than most other Kickstarter campaigns. And the best part is, you still get the same Augmented Reality experience, just without the price tag.

 

 

 

 

Lore

From the ashes of eternal chaos, a Great Harmony of light began, formed of the three Celestial beings – Orios (the Hands of Creation), Kromora (the Eyes of Fate) and Gaia (the Blood of Life). These great beings sacrificed themselves, creating the flow of time, the expanse of space, the very core of creation; life was born. Genesis was created. 

But there still existed an eternal being born of chaos and darkness – Rharkon, the Old One. He was locked in eternal battle with Orios, Kromora, and Gaia, until their sacrifice destroyed him...or so they thought. In his final act, Rharkon corrupted the newly formed Genesis with his own malevolent influence. The pure threads of time and space were tainted, forever broken and cursed. 

 Time no longer flows as it should; disruptions known as Rifts bring disorder and chaos to the universe. These passageways connect different ages, and beings that travel them are exposed to the taint of the Old One, changing them in terrifying, unexpected ways, and driving them forevermore towards chaos. 

 You are a Riftlord – a mortal chosen by Genesis to end the final influence of Rharkon. You must venture forth into unknown Rifts, using your power to dominate the tainted beings of the Rifts, building an army of powerful beings from across the Ages. Your task is to keep order, and protect the Universe from the eternal darkness of the Rifts.



Characters

All characters endured a rigorous creative marathon before they were finally put into the application. Each hero has a vastly different playing style, which will cater for unique tactics of every gamer.

Pledge Tiers 

Not only do our pledge points compensate for those who want to gamble for characters, but also those for who want to pick their heroes. We tried to capture the unpredictable elements of opening classic TCG foil wrappers, whilst still catering for people who want a specific character.

Our Kickstarter exclusive dungeon mode is an enhanced single player experience, building on the current stock dungeon mode (Trust me you're going to want to try it).

What is dungeon mode?

A fast-paced single player mode where you choose your hero and battle in-coming waves of deadly enemies. Currently there are 6 waves with increasing difficultly in each consecutive round - testing the mettle of any avid gamer looking for a challenge.




Campaign Stretch Goals

We tried to add as much value into the stretch goals as possible. We're always happy to add more, we're open to suggestions (They will have to be good though).

Is Genesis Pay to Win?

We've had a few people ask us if purchasing characters makes our game pay to win. Unfortunately for those who love to throw money at their screen, having every character only gives you access to every playstyle - it doesn't make you a better player. We're also offering players the ability to acquire characters via earning in-game currency from winning ranked battle. This is contrary to most models which have a seperate paid currency and an in-game currency. We wanted to combine them into a single cohesive system that gives everyone an equal chance. In Genesis the only way you'll become a better player is by...well...Playing  :)

 

           

 

 

 

This is a team effort

We wish to thank the following friends for helping us put this campaign together. You are absolutely amazing and have helped us to really pull this thing together within such a short period of time. You should all be incredibly proud of yourself for the work you've done.

Risks and challenges

We are confident for our product delivery date - We purposely left out novelties such as t-shirts, phone cases, etc so we could focus our undivided attention on producing the product itself at a premium standard.

Our only other challenge will be supply chains, relying on that we hit the TCG stretch goal.

Our last challenge will be to get sufficient feedback from our beta testing group so that the app will be polished enough for a large user base.

FAQ

  • Using our type of AR requires what you call an ‘Anchor’, something so the models will know where to set their plane. Having an anchor also allows you to network with your opponent when battling them. If we reach the stretch goal of $200,000AUD we will implement a fully in-app supported Trading Card Game which will move the Genesis platform from a printable anchor to a card-based anchor.

  • We’ll send you redeem code depending on the reward you purchased. Download the app for free when it is released early October and sign up to your account. Go to store, put in your redeem code and see what you have unlocked!

    Last updated:
  • The XP system compensates for this because if a character is already registered to your account, the second card can either be merged with your already registered character to make it more powerful or you can trade that card with another player.

    Last updated:
  • Nope, having all the characters only gives you access to all the playing styles - It certainly doesn't make you any better, unless you train both them and yourself.

    Last updated:
  • Yes - The current model allows you to get access to your characters digitally through a free printout. However if we hit our TCG stretch goal, we'll start to put cards into physical production and ship them globally. Localization will be something that we are going to introduce in the near future, at this stage Genesis will only be released in English.

    Last updated:
  • Yes! If you're using the printout you can battle friends no matter where they are.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, unless someone creates an account and you trade them a character.
