Wikipedia said:
The Sime~Gen Universe, created by Jacqueline Lichtenberg, involves a future where humanity is divided into two subspecies or "larities". Gens look like ordinary humans and produce excess quantities of a life energy called selyn. Simes, who have tentacled arms, must take selyn from Gens in order to survive. If the Gen is frightened and resisting when selyn is taken, the Gen dies. The series chronicles the history of the two subspecies' search for coexistence.[1][2][3][4][5]

Simes and Gens have traditionally lived in separate territories. Simes raise Gens like food animals in pens. Children might become either Sime or Gen at puberty, and free Gens kill their children in self-defense if they start to change—if the child becomes Sime, it might take selyn from parents or loved ones, killing them.

Simes who can take selyn from frightened Gens without killing them are "channels". They can pass the selyn gathered to other Simes. The discovery of the channels leads to Unity. Sime and Gen territories declare an uneasy truce, and channels strive to assist both sides.

Lichtenberg began the series in the late 1960s as part of a creative writing class, putting it aside briefly to work on the Kraith Star Trek fan fiction series.
:retarded: This is some of the dumbest shit I've ever read, you couldn't come up with a more contrived, biologically inexplicable conflict if you tried.

The game itself sounds like a pure Mass Effect clone. Their target customers are already served by the AAA market, so this kickstarter is probably not going anywhere. The only way to save it could be to emphasize same-sex romance and heavily promote it in the social warriors circles.
