That headline from the awkward videogame headline generator, there. What it means is this: the latest Make Something Unreal competition, which had a theme of ‘Mendelian Inheritance: genetics and genomics’ was won by a game developed in UDK (obviously) by ten-man Swedish team Dead Shark Triplepunch. They’ve bagged themselves full licences for the engine, and some hardware. The game, Epigenesis, is a multiplayer future sports game in which the players plant seeds in the map to alter the environment of play each time they score. They’re calling it “a potential e-sport”.
More games should have a SCIENCE page. There’s a video of the team working on their game, below.
