Genesis is a Java desktop application, that runs on Windows, MacOS and Linux. You need a Java Runtime from Oracle to execute it, which is not included in the downloads.

Note 1: Genesis comes in two flavors. The JAR version requires that Java 11 (Oracle, OpenJDK) or later is installed on your computer. The ZIP version comes with a bundled Java and has no further requirements.
Note 2: Genesis 4 is our first attempt to offer a multilingual (German, English) application. It may be that there are some spots of the application where we didn’t succeed yet. Please inform us if you stumble accross translation errors.
Note 3: For those of you using neither english nor german as the operating system language, it might be necessary to go into the settings, choose English as the application language and start Genesis again.
