Does the word 'banal' come to mind?
"At the dawn of mankind there was a genetic code, the key to creation. Now a rogue scientist has discovered this code and plans to use it to create a new mankind. The only problem is, the old one will have to make way for it. Already, a mythological beast has arisen and more will follow. Banetti has been contacted by Mills Jr., who believes that his father, scientist Mills Sr., has discovered this ancient code. As a new mankind is ushered in, so the old one will become obsolete. It falls to Banetti to follow the clues across a landscape as old as time itself."
