Geneforge 1: Mutagen Released

Geneforge 1: Mutagen, the first of Spiderweb Software’s Geneforge remasters, is now available on Steam, GOG, the Epic Games Store, and the studio’s website. Priced at $16.99 or your regional equivalent, including the 15% launch week discount, this remaster invites us to revisit the original Geneforge game and all its unmatched freedom, but this time with an extra creation and a bunch of new quests, gameplay sections, and lore.

Here’s the official description:

Geneforge 1 – Mutagen is a unique, truly open-ended fantasy adventure in a strange, new world. You are one of the Shapers, wizards with the awesome power to create life. Want a tool, a trap, an army? You summon it into existence. You create mighty beasts, and they totally obey you. Usually.

At least, that's how it's supposed to be. You have been stranded on a forbidden island, full of the powerful, lost secrets of your people. Invaders are also here, trying to steal and master your knowledge. Race them for the awesome treasures hidden here. And destroy the thieves. Or join them.

Geneforge 1 – Mutagen offers unmatched freedom in how you play. Use magic or your deadly pets to crush your enemies. Or, use trickery, diplomacy, and stealth to win the game without ever attacking a foe. Choose between a host of rival factions or just destroy everything. Defeat the final boss, or switch sides and join him. Fight alone with blades, missiles, or magic, or create your own army of custom-made mutant monsters.

Geneforge is an epic fantasy adventure with over eighty zones to explore, 50+ hours of gameplay, and unmatched replayability. Choose from dozens of skills, abilities, and pets to reach a vast array of different endings. The coming rebellion will scorch your continent. Who will win? It will be up to you.

And if you check out this Kickstarter update for the game, you’ll learn that Spiderweb is already working on a new Queen's Wish game, with a Kickstarter campaign tentatively scheduled for this summer.
