DEVELOPER: FERAL CAT DEN
Feral Cat Den is a collective of artists, animators, designers, and developers who dream of nesting in a derelict barn. Currently residing in a small studio in Brooklyn, the Collective makes games, animations, web things, VJ things, gin, and numerous other side projects, all based on a mission to fuse animation and interactivity, and create visually rich and tactile games.
Founded by Evan Anthony and Jeremy Abel, who met while studying New Media Design at Rochester Institute of Technology, the Collective’s first game was FriendQuest, a 16-bit RPG starring friends and collaborators.
Pre-production on Genesis Noir began in 2013 on weekends and after hours. In 2014 a prototype was created in Unity, allowing Jeremy and Evan to test the interactions and aesthetics of the game. In 2016, the pair went full time on the game, switching development from Unity to Unreal.
- Explore the Cosmos. Players will discover a world unlike any other in Genesis Noir. Explore nebula, asteroid fields, black holes, primordial earth, and jazz cafes.
- Experience a synthesis of animation and interactivity. The gameplay of Genesis Noir blends visual storytelling and interaction into one seamless experience. The space between cutscene and gameplay is dissolved.
- Enjoy a mixture of 2D and 3D visuals. Genesis Noir combines beautiful hand drawn animation and simple 3D worlds to create a unique visual aesthetic.
- Play with generative art inspired interactions. Play with generative systems and see what they create. Play and express yourself through simple interactions.
