Genesis Black is an adventure game that takes place before, during and after the Big Bang. A cosmic shot spreads towards a god’s heart and you must explore the universe, looking for clues as to how creation might be undone.
Genesis Black is a creation myth and a film noir. A love triangle erupts between No Man, a watch peddler stuck in a deterministic hell, Golden Boy, a narcissistic artist who loves to create and destroy, and Miss Mass, an alluring jazz singer who draws all who approach him. The Big Bang results and the story begins!
From the birth of stars to the emergence of life and beyond, you will explore the deadly Big Bang. This wide array of decors are presented in black and white, paying homage to the contrast of classic film noir photography. Hand-drawn 2D animations and 3D environments are combined to create beautiful transitions between cosmic scale scenes and the smallest clues for your investigation.
With an emphasis on tactile puzzles and exploration, you’ll experience objects in small fragments of the universe to discover how they can be manipulated to advance your investigation. Dial a rotary telephone; destroy a civilization; plant a garden; improvise with a musician; create life – all in your search for a way to save Miss Mass.
Like any good film noir, Genesis Black is filled with a buzzing jazz soundtrack, sounds of quiet streets and a cosmic microwave backdrop. You might even play a tune or two yourself.
We worked very hard on Genesis Black and are happy to announce that you can help destroy the Big Bang today! It has been extremely fun learning astrophysics, classical cinema, human history, and science fiction to create a luscious story with touches of existentialism and we hope you enjoy playing it. Genesis Black as much as we loved doing it!
A dark adventure through time and space. You play as No Man, a watch peddler caught in a love triangle with other cosmic beings, Miss Mass and Golden Boy. When your affair turns into a bitter confrontation, you’ll witness a gunshot fired from a jealous god – otherwise known as the Big Bang. Jump into the expanding universe and find a way to prevent or destroy creation and save your love.
