Development History

Gene Shift Auto was first released back in 2009 under the name of Subvein. With the help of the community it was developed as a hobby until 2015, when Gene Shift Auto got Greenlit on Steam. At this point I quit my job and spent two years living in Peru to work on it full-time, and enjoy a cheaper cost of living. In 2017 Gene Shift Auto was released on Early Access to very positive reviews, and is still iterating based on user feedback to this day.

Gene Shift Auto launched on Steam Early Access on May 23rd, 2017 for both Windows and Linux. If you want to write about or stream Gene Shift Auto on youtube or twitch then please do! Monetization of your videos is perfectly fine. Go nuts! There is a demo available on Steam too. Hit me up on Twitter @GeneShiftAuto if you have any questions.
