Niche - a genetics survival game

PC GamesA simulation/strategy game about population genetics. Breed your animals and evolve your own species, based on real genetics.

The Swiss indie studio Team Niche reached its $15’000 goal for Niche - a genetics survival game on Kickstarter within the first three days and is still going strong with over $30’000 and more than a thousand backers halfway through thanks to its vibrant community.

Niche is a game about creative problem solving that lets players evolve their own creatures. The main objective is to keep your animal tribe alive against all odds, such as hungry predators, climate change and sickness. Players can come up with tons of different approaches to survive in the harsh environment. How about evolving overwhelming strength for battle? Great camouflage for disguise? Or a skin that is toxic to eat for predators?

The game’s mating system is based on real gene science, featuring mutation, dominant/recessive/codominant heredity and much more because Niche’s game designer is a huge biology nerd. Niche even has a system to simulate incest between animals.

Niche will be released for PC, Mac and Linux in Q1 2017. An Early Access version of Niche will be released on Steam in July 2016. The game is also planned to be ported to tablets.
