Through experimenting with the application of blockchain with Alien Arsenal. This has allowed for the 8 Circuit team to really refine player experiences in Project Genesis.
While this doesn’t necessarily spell the end for the game, the team has disclosed its need to throw the majority of its time and resources behind Project Genesis. Meaning that players will no longer be able to download and play the title via iOS or Android in the future.
“But we will be putting Alien Arsenal into hibernation until we are able to give it the full attention it deserves. As we are not currently supporting Alien Arsenal it has been necessary to remove it from both the Apple Store and Google Play, closing this chapter of development.”
