Driving to the supply drop
Geneshift was first released back in 2009 under the name of Subvein. It was later renamed to Mutant Factions and now finally - Geneshift. With the help of the community it was developed as a hobby until 2014, when Geneshift got Greenlit on Steam. At this point I quit my job and spent two years living in Peru to work on it full-time. It's cheaper there (and sunnier!) and this let me stretch my savings long enough to finish the game properly.

Geneshift launched on Steam Early Access on May 23rd, 2017 for both Windows and Linux. If you want to write about or stream Geneshift on youtube or twitch then please do! Monetization of your videos is perfectly fine. Go nuts! There is a demo available on Steam too. Hit me up on Twitter @Geneshift if you have any questions.
