Zygote is a first-person adventure video game set in an emerging battle between the attacking Patogens and the subjugated Kinship alliance. The player, initially ill-equipped to defeat the advancing Patogens, joins the Kinship resistance to master their vital skills and techniques, thus acquiring super-human abilities necessary to triumph over the Patogens, save the Kinship and alter their combined fate.
A description of Zygote's Angkor Gate including some background story. Plus a few recent images from the work-in-progress.

The Angkor Gate is a teleportation device to travel throughout the Zygote worlds. Each gate requires unique resources to activate. The first gate, from Chapter 1, needs six Books of Zy assembled on its deck.
The attacking Patogens have stolen the Books of Zy that activate the Angkor Gate. They have laid siege on the Kinship stronghold positions. The war has resulted in many Kinship losses. But the Kinship are expecting you; You're their saviour, although still immature and inexperienced.
There's much to learn and experience before staging the ultimate counterattack. Your search for Patogen Portals will take you on a journey across the lands. Teleport into the Patogen kingdoms to recover Kinship resources, books and weapons.
I'm working on the HUD Display and Player's Electronic Surveillance Systems (ESS) this week. Please follow me on twitter and have a chat. I'm always around... and you might stumble on a few extra Zygote notes or links to articles I've been reading this week.
Until next time,
