''Ge.ne.sis'' is a TurnBasedStrategy game with RPGElements available to play via flash. ''Ge.ne.sis'' can be found [[http://www.kongregate.com/games/fairypoet/ge-ne-sis here]].

A teenage girl named Neraine wakes up to a strange world that's like a dream. The statue next to her comes to life and she's greeted by the woman who introduces herself as the High Priestess. However, while she's talking to the High Priestess, Neraine gets attacked by a stange wolf like creature. The High Priestess gives her weapons and aids her in the fight. The fight ensues and afterwards, the High Priestess vows to stay by her side as Neraine sets off on her mysterious journey.

The next game, ''VideoGame/WingsOfGeNeSis'', is a SpinOff / GenreShift to a HorizontalScrollingShooter. You can play it [[http://www.kongregate.com/games/fairypoet/wings-of-genesis/?gamereferral=WingsOfGenesis here]], and it also has a [[http://www.kongregate.com/games/fairypoet/wings-of-genesis-guide guide]].

A third game, named ''Into the Rabbit Hole'', has just begun development.

!!Tropes found in this game include

* ActionGirl: Neraine and Sisily.
* AnAdventurerIsYou: The characters' abilities tend toward a few different endgame builds:
** Neraine: FragileSpeedster, [[GlassCannon Glass Ninja]], or MagicKnight; can be a LightningBruiser.
** Gelyan: StoneWall or GlassCannon. Ironically, the StoneWall build will let you deal the most damage, through an ability that's stronger the higher your maximum health is. However, the ability works at the cost of your own health, and you get it relatively far into the game.
** Sisily: SquishyWizard or MagicKnight.
** The High Priestess: TheMedic and [[StatusBuff buffer]].
** The Magician: SquishyWizard.
** The Fool: JackOfAllStats (none of his stats are disproportionately above or below average).
** The Hanged Man: MightyGlacier (he can't even move).
** The Death: MightyGlacier, with LifeDrain and no magic.
* AllInARow
* ArmorPiercingAttack:
** The Death's Iron Maiden skill.
** Gelyan's Armor Crusher skill actually deals ''more'' damage the higher the opponent's defense is.
* ArtifactOfDoom: The [[spoiler:Fate Diary]] to a certain extent.
* BigBad: [[spoiler:Reciful]] in the main storyline.
* BonusBoss: Tale Memory in the first game. Defeating it is necessary to work towards HundredPercentCompletion, and a future update will provide an item, upon defeating the memory, that allows you to port your stats and perks to the [[strike: second]] third game (which will take a while). Thus, this can be considered "subverted". Though Tale Memory is the hardest BonusBoss, there are numerous other optional bosses as well, most notably the Holy Egg, which is fought at the end of a long sidequest chain.
* BribingYourWayToVictory:
** Sisily's second tarot card, The Lovers, is unlocked by donating to the game creator.
** Wings of Genesis also has extra content obtained via donation. In this case, it's the possibility to play as Esis. She can't use a spirit beast, but doesn't need it at all.
* {{BFS}}: Neraine, Sisily, and The High Priestess's swords.
* CaptainObvious:
** Gelyan.
** In response to Nera's decision not to help: "TWO. BIG. SWORDS."
* CastFromHitPoints: Soul Pact. Soulbursts are extreme versions of this; they ''reduce the Tarot's HP to zero'', but are extremely useful.
* CloudCuckooLander: Sisily.
* ChainedByFashion: The Hanged Man.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: [[spoiler: Gelyan.]]
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: A lot of the characters' outfits reflect their element and/or personality. Elements are also named by their color (I.E. [[color:yellow:Yellow]] is basically electric attacks, [[color:blue:Blue]] is ice, and [[color:red:Red]] is fire.)
* {{Crutch Character}}s: Almost every single Tarot. They're very useful during the beginning where you have few playable characters and abilities, but once you get four abilities for everyone and optimize your stat distribution, most of them aren't useful for much other than Soulbursts.
* DarkIsNotEvil: The Death.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Gelyan ''tries'' to do this with Nera, with limited results.
* TheDitz: Sisily, who is even called a ditz in the Wings of Genesis guide.
* DualWielding: Nera seems to LOVE Dual Wielding. In Wings of Genesis, she Dual Wields a pair of large ice '''bayonettes!''' In a Side Scrolling Shoot 'Em Up.
* DuelBoss: The Hanged Man and The Death. Fortunately, they're both {{Bonus Boss}}es.
* ElementalRockPaperScissors (featuring FireIceLightning in the form of Red, Blue and Yellow Natures): Every attack has an element, every character has varying weaknesses and resistances. The two 'unique' Natures are Black, which represents physical damage, and White, which represents non-elemental damage.
* EliteTweak: Nera can gain str from her magic, str gives her higher hp than the norm, the ability that gives her str from her magic stat also heals her by truckloads, and she has high agililty and gains more from it, do the math. Gely similarly, should be built with high endurance, letting him use his CastFromHitPoints ability to hit like 3 houses.
* EstrogenBrigadeBait: Gelyan seems to be turning into this, judging by ''Into the Rabbit Hole'' concept art; his outfit now consists of a [[SleevesAreForWimps sleeveless shirt]] and shorts.
* FaceHeelRevolvingDoor: [[spoiler: Gelyan shifts between "bahaha, I've betrayed you!" to "oh, right, it was to prevent the destruction of the time stream" to "I don't really care what I'm doing, I'm just BORED!"]] [[spoiler: In Wings of Genesis, Gely is back to doublecrossing everyone again when he's not making horrible attempts to flirt with every female cast member.]]
* FlatCharacter: Very, very few characters get any development and are rather shallow to begin with, unfortunately.
* GenkiGirl: Sisily.
* GenreShift: From Ge.Ne.Sis: Down the Road of Tales, a tactical RPG, to Wings of Genesis, a ShootEmUp.
* GenreSavvy: Gelyan knows exactly why the Bandits' cave starts shaking once Nera touches the [[spoiler:Fate Diary]].
-->'''Gelyan''': Neraine, get away from the book!\\
'''Neraine''': What, an earthquake?\\
'''Gelyan''': According to popular cliches, when somebody enters a treasure cave and touches something they're not supposed to, the cave collapses!
* GrimReaper / DistaffCounterpart: The Tarot Death.
* GuestStarPartyMember: Emi.
* GuideDangIt: Finding good stat builds for characters in some cases. Possibly also the Holy Egg. The reason for this is that if the "clock" on it is at a certain point, its resistances block either physical or magical attacks. It is not apparenty why, but the hands move based on the time of the player's computer (so it changes resistances the first round it gets when the time is either XX:30 or XX:00)
* GuileHero / MagnificentBastard [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor (it's hard to tell)]]: [[spoiler:Gelyan.]]
* HandsomeLech: The only male main character is Gelyan... And he takes advantage of this fact by hitting on everyone. Lampshaded by [[spoiler:Reciful]], who complains about Gelyan bringing back a harem.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Judging from the ''Wings of Genesis'' ending, Reciful will make one eventually. [[EpilepticTrees this opens up new possibilities]] for who TheManBehindTheMan might be...]]
* HopelessBossFight: [[spoiler: Reciful]] has a ton of HP and 50% of the damage your characters deal to him is automatically dealt right back. Defeating him results in ''a glitch''.
* AnIcePerson: Nera, the High Priestess, and The Hanged Man.
* ImpossiblyCoolWeapon: All over the place. Nera's twin ice {{BFS}}s, Gelyan's gun, Sisily's BFS with a [[BuffySpeak circular...chainsaw...thing...]] And that's only for the heroes, during the first game. The second one ups the ante with stuff like Nera's dual ice '''bayonettes'''.
* ItAmusedMe: Pretty much the only reason [[ChaoticNeutral Gelyan]] does anything.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Neraine.
* LesYay: Sisily and Emi. Sisily also gets a new attack called 'Electrify Kisses' after Emi, a yellow (electric) natured side character, [[strike:transfers her spiritual power]] gives her a smooch. Sisily claims she doesn't swing that way, but we know better.
* LightEmUp: The Lovers.
* LovableTraitor: [[spoiler:Gelyan.]]
* MeaningfulName:
** '''Ge'''lyan, '''Ne'''raine, '''Sis'''ily. Also, [[SignificantAnagram Reciful]] (Lucifer).
** The mysterious white-haired girl who appears near the end of the main storyline has a brother named [[spoiler: Gen]], while her name is [[spoiler: Esis]].
* MrExposition: [[spoiler:Gelyan after the Fate Diary is obtained.]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler: Gelyan betrayed his "friends" to attempt to destroy an artifact... That they were trying to (and failing to) destroy anyway. Then, he hands it over to his other friend who tries to destroy the {{Multiverse}} excluding one.]]
* NonElemental: Gelyan, The Fool, and The Death.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: [[spoiler:Gelyan]] in the first half of the game, who even [[spoiler:hides the fact that he can summon a Tarot]].
* OmnicidalManiac: [[spoiler:Reciful]] comes close. [[spoiler:He wants to destroy ''every single universe'' except his own.]]
* TheOneGuy: Gelyan.
* OpeningTheSandbox
* ParasolOfPain: Reciful's WeaponOfChoice.
* PlayingWithFire: Sisily and the Magician.
* PointBuildSystem: And gods help you if you mess it up; you only get one chance to reset a single character's attributes -- and you have three characters.
* PoorCommunicationKills: [[spoiler: Gelyan, it wasn't necessary to betray them, ya know...]]
* PrehensileHair: A variation: Emi flaps her [[RapunzelHair gigantic ponytails]] to fly.
* {{Pride}}: [[AllThereInTheManual The official game guide]] says that Gelyan is very haughty and arrogant.
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: Three quarters of your party, though [[spoiler:Gelyan]] ''is'' a professional fighter.
* RareCandy: Four of the five "breath" items, one of which can only be unlocked by [[BribingYourWayToVictory donating to the game's creator]].
* ReverseGrip: Neraine takes this to WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief-breaking levels with ''two ice swords with '''pickaxe grips''''', both of which she holds in reverse grip.
* SavePoint: Oftentimes there'll be a battle as you approach.
* ShockAndAwe: Emi.
* SideQuest: Doing the storyline-required battles only gets you ''fifty-six percent'' completion.
* SleevesAreForWimps: Gelyan in ''Into the Rabbit Hole'', according to the concept art.
* TheSmartGuy: Gelyan.
* StableTimeLoop: [[spoiler:The characters go back in time to administer a potion to Chio...the result of which, of course, was what originally led to them being able to get the potion (and go back in time) in the first place.]]
* SummonMagic: The Tarot cards.
* TakingYouWithMe: Soulbursts are usually like this.
* TarotMotifs: The summonings.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Tinkfi.
* ThouShallNotKill: Despite the characters using swords and guns, none of the ([[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman humanoid]]) enemies ever die - they just get "beat up" and retreat. Neraine even threatens Gelyan when he attempts to finish off a defeated bandit.
* UpTheRealRabbitHole: {{Deconstructed}} somewhat. [[spoiler:[[BigBad Reciful]] uses this as justification for destroying entire universes, claiming that their inhabitants aren't real and are merely fragments of peoples' consciousnesses. Because he believes his universe is the only "real" one, this allows him to perform such massacres without remorse.]]
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: Averted with [[spoiler:[[WellIntentionedExtremist Reciful]]]], who insists that [[spoiler:the alternate universes he intends to destroy]] aren't real, and merely dream fragments, eliminating any remorse he would normally have in such a situation.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Reciful]] to an extent. [[spoiler:He simply wants to avert the end of the world...though his [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans method of doing so]] is to destroy the {{Multiverse}}.]]
* WildCard: [[spoiler:Gelyan.]]
* XMeetsY: [[spoiler: ''KingdomHearts'' meets ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' (with a dash of ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'').]]
