App description: THE ULTIMATE IPAD STRATEGY GAME : GENESIA - THE 7 GEMS OF NEORT !

This new version of GENESIA is inspired from the game of the same name I created twenty years ago on Amiga 500. GENESIA, named Ultimate Domain in the USA, is a turn based strategic game that received the Tilt dor in 1993 for the best strategic game facing the challengers of the time such as Dune 2 and Starlord .

100% REWRITTEN WITH OPTIMIZED TOOLS FOR IPAD 2

GENESIAs programming has been entirely re-thought and re-written according to Objective C, whilst maintaining the philosophy and original title of the game.

A BALLSY GAME DESIGNED FOR PLAYERS HARD TO PLEASE

GENESIA is not an easy game. Contrary to Gameplay where everything is pre-cooked and where your hand is being held to redirect you every two minutes, here there is no tutorial obligating you to do this or that in order to advance.

In GENESIA, there are no mind blowing special effects. I preferred to keep my focus on the deepness and interest of the game.

AN OLD FASHIONED GAME, WITH REAL TURN BASED BITS IN THEM !

One year is divided into four seasons and each season corresponds to one round in the game. In the beginning of each round, little time is given to you to elaborate your strategies and distribute your orders, before passing to your opponents hand.

You can do what you want at any given moment whenever you feel the need to. Being quick or slow isnt a problem, at any given moment the situations can permute and a well played hand can change the unravelling of the round. A situation that seems completely hopeless to you can, armed with patience and strategy, turn around to your favor.

TACTICAL COMBAT, MANAGEMENT, ADVENTURE AND GEMS !

GENESIA isnt a simple race against time. You will always have several ways to do what must be done, and step by step, you will sharpen your tactics. To achieve victory, you will have to develop your economys politics and accumulate resources that will enable you to recruit soldiers to find as fast as you can gems of NEORT.

GENESIA ITS ALIVE !

To evolve in GENESIA, you will have to act as harmoniously as possible. Several crafts are at your disposal to build this New World : farmers, lumberjacks, blacksmiths, carpenters, soldiers... But all of this wont be done easily for other Governors are striving just as you, on other territories. Its your economys development, your military force and technological advancement that will lead you to the term of your engagement.

As in every society, your people aspire to happiness and have their own lives. They work, pay taxes, get married, have children, age... and are even subject to diseases.

Flowers favor the presence of pollinating insects, the tree roots stabilize the grounds, and vegetation develops accordingly to the natural environment.
The sea, the rain, the storms, the snow melts, drinking water wells influence the groundwater.
The seasons have a direct impact on the exploitation of the natural resources.

GENESIA IS YOUR GAME, FOR A LONG TIME

This new version is the first stone to building an empire that we can create together. It will take time and GENESIA will evolve during the following months. I already have dozens of ideas I would like to incorporate to make GENESIA the most complete, interesting turn based strategic game there is.

IN A NUTSHELL

A Strategy and Management turn based game in a living world.
Playable, up to three players on the same iPad or against the artificial intelligence.
A procedural universe: two rounds never look alike, for hundreds of hours of gaming.
A deepness and attention to detail unprecedented on iPad : form armies and conquer foreign provinces : soldiers, bowmen, horsemen, champions, bards, cannoneers and hot air balloon pilots are under your commands. Your architects have the blueprints for dozens of constructions.

Yes, the update was released on November 16, but I did not send the information to Genesia fans. It is difficult for an indy developer to become known, so I allowed myself to inform you here. Thank you for your support.

Next update coming soon !

Hi all,

I am currently working on an update that improves the management of the crafts (v 1.1.2). Then certainly the next month I'll start with an implement of a "score & achievements" on game center (v 1.2.0) Thank you for sharing.

Note to all fans : Your involvement is important for further free updates of GENESIA and so that together we can continue to develop this world ! So I call on to you, talk about GENESIA to your friends, on your Blogs, your Facebook page, Twitter and Forums. If you are columnist or journalist, please help make it known.

Have a great new year !

Woohoo, thanks for making my wish for a score more than a hollow promise on your part! I just hope that this potential score will be something based per session and not simply some combined career score. I want to know my best/most efficient single play through in each mode. Also, while GC integration sounds GREAT, I hope at least my best score will be something accessible locally and not require me to log onto GC just to see my top score in a given mode.

While "Ballsy" does seem a bit self-congratulatory, I think what the developer means is that it is not a casual-friendly game. It takes a bit to get your brain around, but once you do, you're rewarded with some pretty deep gameplay (at least for an iOS game).
