Team 17, publisher of games like Worms and the upcoming Yooka-Laylee, has announced a new "mix of roguelike shooter, base building and survival" titled Genesis Alpha One.

The game's debut trailer shows off how those disparate elements come together to create a coherent sci-fi thriller. As you build your base through an isometric interface, you'll discover aliens aboard your newly-built station, which means you'll have to take care of them yourself or build limited-use defenses to help you out. With this being a roguelike and all, proving yourself fit to be one of the last remnants of mankind will likely be no easy task.

The trailer also hints a few story details, such as computers determining that in order to save mankind, you'll have to build "a new one." Whether that means repopulating the planet or creating a new species is unclear. The game does not currently have a release date, but will be coming to both consoles and PC.
