Read this before playing! This guide tells you all you need to know when starting out with TGP, especially if you’re a new player!
 
 

What is TGP?

Welcome to The Genesis Project, the community’s attempt at recreating SBURB! In this game, you will destroy the world as you know it, play through confusingly esoteric game systems, and (hopefully) successfully create a new universe! Either that, or you’ll die horribly over and over again. Oh well.
 
Read on to learn how this game works!
 
 
 

Starting a SESSION

Each game takes place within a SESSION – a unique instance of the universe in which you or your friends can play.
 
To start a SESSION lobby, simply click ‘Start!’ on the Main Menu,
 
 
The Actual Guide - The Genesis Project - Starting a SESSION - AD4A43935
 
 
click “Create Lobby” on the Crockercorp Lobby List,

name your lobby (and add a password if you want this SESSION to be private),

and you’re done! You can get your friends to join your SESSION lobby by clicking the appropriate SESSION name on the Crockercorp Lobby List; they’ll show up under you in the SESSION lobby window.
 
You can start playing right away by clicking the ‘Start Playing’ button,

Playing the game

We highly recommend that you read the ‘Sburb Guide for ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥’ item to help you through the early stages of the game, especially if you have never read Homestuck or other Sburb-related media before.
 
Every house you start in will have the ‘Sburb Guide for ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥’ item in the starting room. Pick it up, then read through it by clicking the ‘Read’ button while it’s in your inventory.
 
 
The Actual Guide - The Genesis Project - Playing the game - 00CD225F7
 
 
Flip through its highly aggressive pages by clicking the blue arrow at the bottom left and right corners of the book while you’re reading it.

Also consider following guidance of the quests in your pause menu!
 
 
 

Alchemy and you: a primer

Alchemy is one of the major mechanics that allows you progress in Sburb by combining any two items together!
 
 
To alchemize something, first put down all machines in the phernalia registry.

Insert two items into the punch designix and click the ‘punch’ button, then click the || button.

Move the item into the left slot to the totem lathe and add a dowel from the cruxtrude into its top slot, then press ‘Lathe’.

Congrats! You’ve just made a brand new item! (Make sure that you have enough grist before attempting any of this!)
 
 
Fun fact: There’s another type of alchemy in the game that will produce a new item with the same two things you’ve used: go ahead and discover it!
 
 
 

Really playing the game

So, you’ve done everything that the book tells you to do. You’ve even entered the medium like the book yelled at you to do. Now what?
 
Sburb is naturally an open-ended and confusing game. You can spend the rest of your time in the game doing some of the following:
 
 
-Building large and nonsensical structures with your friends
 
-Creating increasingly complex items using the alchemy system (explained in Sburb Guide for ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, chapter 3)
 
-Reaching the various gates placed in your world by building higher and higher
 
-Exploring dungeons after going through said gates
 
-Fighting enemies in said dungeons, including a Really Big One that you might want to prepare for
 
 
As it stands, The Genesis Project never really ends ,and new content is being added every so often, so play as long as you like!
