Genetic Disaster Lands in Your Living Room with a Complete Lack of Subtlety and a Large Dose of Fun

French studio Team8 presents its off the wall manor in a detonating trailer



France, December 1, 2017 – Team 8 is proud to announce that their first-ever production Genetic Disaster (already in early access) will be available in its final version on Steam December 15, 2017. Be prepared to lose long time buddies due to accidental (they said) friendly fire and betrayals.

In this cooperative rogue-like, casualties and accidental friendly shootings are commonplace. Summon your buddies, bust out the beers, order in the pizza and get ready for a chilled relaxed evening. Join forces to beat the bosses and defeat their minions, but be even more cautious with your happy trigger allies. Caught in the middle between friendly fire and explosive barrels, there will be plenty of opportunities to wipe the entire team out.

Join this band of peculiar characters, named Sneaky, Panic, Devil and Bunker in their fight against the completely nutty scientist! Help them escape from the mansion and face the wacky monsters inhabiting the corridors. For real, get with the program, you will pull your teeth out just like when playing Cuphead but that's what we like! Die, laugh and retry.

Genetic Disaster is a "cooperative" rogue like for up to 4 players, with fun and gratifying gameplay wrapped around cartoony and super colorful cute graphics. You can play alone, with friends (who may not be your friends anymore at the end of the evening), on your couch or online but whatever happens, you will curse everyone ! Collect weapons, potions, share your life (or not) and upgrade your hero at each level to create your own style of play or to match that of your teammates. Therefore, cooperation constitutes the key element to victory, and at the same time very often will drive you to lose the game.

  • Co-op local and online multiplayer for up to 4 players
  • Procedurally generated levels
  • 4 charismatic characters, each with their own skills
  • Seamless and automatic gameplay balance adjustments depending on the number of players
  • Hand-painted characters and environments
  • Upgrade your hero throughout levels
  • PC and Game pad compatible controls

Genetic disaster will be available on Steam on December 15, 2017 for $19.99.

About Team8 :

Team8 is an independent studio composed of 6 video game enthusiasts especially fans of co-op games. They owe nothing to anyone and are entirely independent allowing them to give free rein to their detonating creativity. "Because we are also gamers, we take pleasure in imagining and developing what we have always missed; these games where one wears the princess on his back while the other distracts the dragon, combining one’s efforts with the other players by pushing them into the void to check the depth of the abyss before fighting back to back in a gladiator arena; that’s our vision."
