New Trailers Revealed for Genesis: Alpha One, Yoku’s Island Express and Sword Legacy: Omen!

August 23rd 2017 – Award-winning veteran games developer and international games label Team17 has today revealed new Gamescom trailers for three exciting forthcoming and diverse games from its games label including quirky pinball platformer Yoku’s Island Express, Genesis: Alpha One which combines a unique mix of rogue-like, FPS, base building and survival elements and  Sword Legacy: Omen, a challenging turn-based tactical RPG with a dark, cartoon-inspired aesthetic.

All three games are currently playable to all attendees of Gamescom at Team17’s booth in hall 8.1.


Genesis: Alpha One

Our planet has been left ravaged by war; pollution and over-exploitation of resources, humanity’s hope lies with the Genesis Program and the promise of a new home. As the Captain of a Genesis star ship, you journey into uncharted space on this ultimate mission and you must create a crew capable of fighting the alien infestations that threaten it. Take DNA from the aliens that you  encounter and splice it with your crew members to give them new abilities and a better chance to prosper within a hostile galaxy.

Your goal: Find new homes for humanity’s DNA and save the species from extinction. Genesis: Alpha One is heading to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2018.


Sword Legacy: Omen

As Uther Pendragon you will embark on an epic journey through Broken Britannia to avenge your fallen lord and recover the long-lost sword, Excalibur. Fight alongside a rag tag band of unlikely
heroes to defeat your enemies in tense, turn-based tactical combat. Crush your enemies’ willpower and watch them flee the battlefield or even turn on their comrades. Use the environment to your
advantage, moving your heroes into cover and setting the enemy ablaze with explosive barrels before finishing them off with brutal, visceral overkill moves. Sword Legacy: Omen is heading to PC
in 2017.


Yoku’s Island Express
