Play around with the genetics of animals in Niche, a genetics survival turn-based strategy game that blends together simulation and roguelike elements to give you a unique spin on the genre where you get to breed your own species! The game was developed and published by Stray Fawn Studio on September 15th, 2016.
Simulation, turn-based strategy, roguelike elements, and the genetic code of animals. These are the things that you can expect from this game, and it delivers. Even though the title is based on real genetics, it has all been simplified so that the player understands what he's doing. Now, the objective is to make your own animal species survive all the terrors that await, like cunning predators, devastating climate change, and sickness that can spread quickly. Tinker with the genetic code and play God as you create your own version of cat, bear, dog, and fox-like creatures and make sure that they end up seeing the light of the next day.
Constantly evolve as time goes by, adapt to any dangers that your environment throws at you, and keep your pack alive. If, by some chance, your species encounters a lethal threat that makes the species go extinct, you lose and evolution needs to start from the beginning once again. Niche is a game to be enjoyed while also learning about the scientific mechanics of genetics. You will experiment with the five pillars of population genetics: mutation, natural selection, genetic flow, genetic drift, and sexual selection as your species continues to survive and strive.
Buy the game today and witness how real genetics affect the breeding system, utilize over 100 genes as you evolve your species, experience charming procedurally generated worlds and animals with 4 biomes full of prey, predators, and fauna, and prove that your species can tackle any challenges that Niche throws their way!
