Play as the molecular biologist Lachesis and attempt to prevent the extinction of the woolly mammoths by sending pieces of DNA back in time. By giving woolly mammoths mutations such as increased longevity or stronger immune systems you can keep them alive for longer and push back their extinction date.

Genomix is a short visual novel with some light strategic elements as you plan out which genes to research and implant. We spent a lot of time polishing the game and making it a tight 5 to 10 minute experience. We hope you enjoy the game and learn a bit about woolly mammoths and biology!

This game was made in 72 hours for the Ludum Dare 46 game jam. Please rate the game and leave comments after you're done playing!

SO HOW DO YOU MAKE THE MAMMOTHS not exinct ( sorry caps ) and what combination? 


I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who would like to see mammoths in today's time !


A fun game where you try to save Woolly Mammoths from extinction by sending DNA back in time to 6000 BC. It’s a tight 10 minute experience, but legitimately fun. It would make a  fun model for a memorable puzzle in a larger game.


I really enjoyed it! I would like to see more of these style games


It doesn't work, the screen gets black


Are you playing the online HTML5 version on the downloadable Windows version? Could you please provide some system details such as which browser and which Windows operating system you are using?

We'll try to reproduce the issue and upload a fix, thanks!


Great game!
