Genesis embarks on an emotionally intense VR journey to experience the dramatic milestones in the evolution of earth and mankind.
Chaos, rebirth and catastrophes mark the history of Earth, yet mankind exists. As time travelers we immerse into unknown spheres. Seemingly unreal, mystical and daunting, yet full of breath-taking landscapes and creatures that truly existed before. A 24 h metaphor of 4.7 bn years of evolution that reveals: We are children of galactic luck, born in the final second of eternity.
