WANNA BE A GOD?

Your time is coming. Guide a fledgling civilization through the obstacles of life. From humble beginnings, watch as they evolve and advance throughout the ages under your wing. Influence their decisions and punish the unfaithful with a wide range of godly abilities. Interact with objects, create disasters, and launch clueless creatures into orbit. This is your world, and nothing can stop you from having fun.

Our goal is to bring back the features you know and love from classic god games and spice them up with fresh ideas, a modern physics engine, and stylized visuals developed by a few of our very own industry heroes.

NATURE AS YOU KNOW IT

In The Universim, nature is just as wonderful and unpredictable as ever. Every planet comes with a few surprises that are sure to challenge your civilization. From tornadoes that consume everything in their path, to thunderous earthquakes that threaten to split your civilization in two. If you treat nature poorly, it might just show you how brutal and unforgiving it can be. Each planet you encounter will have a unique underbelly. Some planets are tranquil and filled to the brim with resources, while others are barren and dangerous. Be careful out there!

Something as simple as the cycle between night and day can play an important role. Wild animal attacks are more common at night, as are frequent temperature drops. Daytime offers a little more safety from the harshness of the world. With the inclusion of a full, four-season cycle, a planet’s biomes can change drastically, making it extremely difficult for Nuggets to survive brutal winters without proper preparation ahead of time.

THE STORY OF A SPECIES

Meet the Nuggets, a fragile and whacky species that relies on your leadership to build, research, and advance. Help them, and they will soon begin writing their own history in the stars. Every Nugget is a unique individual with a distinct set of characteristics. Just like any other living creature, Nuggets must have access to a few vital resources in order to survive. This includes water to drink, food to eat, and recreational activities to increase their happiness and quality of life. Recreational activities may include blowing stuff up. You’ve been warned.

As you spend time with the Nuggets, You will see that they behave like natural, living beings. They have their own thoughts and needs - and they even have the ability to make their own decisions at times. We want to give you a feeling that you’re interacting with a living organism, almost like you’re messing around with a rather chaotic ant farm.

Discover Wild Life

Discover planets with Drones and Rovers, equip rockets with right technologies. Depends on the planet factors such as planet distance, temperature and etc you’ll need to equip your Discovery Machines with the right tools. Put more solar panels to keep your rover, that can take probs on the planets and give you idea of how much resources lays in ground of that planet, to charge it batteries faster during the day time. Equip your rockets with bigger gas tanks to make it travel longer and to give a chance for Astronauts Nuggets to come back home.

ORGANIC GAMEPLAY

Planets in The Universim aren’t just made up of a bunch of neatly-arranged objects; everything is linked together and plays a unique role in each planet’s ecosystem. Every tree your civilization cuts down, every resource they mine and every animal they hunt will affect the world they’re living in. A lack of trees and high levels of pollution will raise the global temperature over time, while reckless hunting or fishing might cause the extinction of some species. It’s your mission to manage how the Nuggets collect and utilize resources. What mark will you leave on the ecosystems that existed millions of years before your arrival? Will you use every available resource and expand at an unprecedented pace, or will you methodically create a more sustainable way of life for your civilization?

These are living, breathing worlds where everything is interconnected. We aim to provide you with an unique experience unlike any of the god games you have played before. Every decision you or your civilization makes will have consequences.

CHANGE IS INEVITABLE

Your journey begins with a blank slate. There will only be two Nuggets at first, Adahy and Elu. They are the first of their kind, a spark of life that will change the world forever. As Nuggets progress, their technology evolves alongside them. You will watch as crude stone huts transform into architectural wonders and the fires that once protected your civilization are replaced by the magic of electricity.

LEAVE YOUR MARK

What kind of god will you be? Will your civilization become heavily dependent on natural resources, consuming fluffy bunnies and nonrenewable resources in equal measure? Or will you guide them towards a more sustainable future that relies on agricultural proficiency, responsible hunting, and green energy? You have the tools to change everything, and your actions have far-reaching implications.

A UNIQUE JOURNEY EVERY TIME YOU PLAY

Our procedural world generation is built around the gameplay, and not the other way around. We make sure that fun is always the number one priority. While procedural generation guarantees a lot of replayability, it doesn’t automatically make the experience worthwhile. That’s why we’ve invested a lot of time into not only creating unique and beautiful planets, but also giving each one its own set of challenging characteristics. Every star in the sky points the way to a procedurally-generated planet just waiting to be colonized. With the right technology, any planet can be yours. You can terraform lifeless planets into stunning utopias or simply suck every last drop of natural resources from it before moving on. We want to make sure that you’ll have fun with each planet that you encounter.

Extraterrestrial Patch V0.0.35 Is Now Live


PATCH NOTES ALPHA V.35 (Extraterrestrial)


 

Greetings, Creators!


We hope you’ve been enjoying the summer weather. Take in a good five minutes of sunlight before you shut your curtains for the remainder of the season and jump into the latest update of The Universim!


If you’ve been enjoying the game so far and want to spread the love like a warm breeze, leave us a review on Steam. Our devs receive a candy pizza for every positive review that comes in. 



The Universim is currently being featured in the Steam Summer Sale with a 20% discount! If you or someone you know hasn’t picked the game up yet, it’s a great time to hop aboard.


Here’s what’s new:


Alien Visits

As Nuggets edge ever closer to the stars, extraterrestrial civilizations have begun to take notice. Be prepared for unexpected visitors, as well as whatever phenomena these events may bring. This is only the first contact, however, so expect to see more in future updates.




Nug-made Disasters

Nuggets have never been very competent at anything, and now it’s going to come with a cost. If uneducated Nuggets are assigned to a position beyond their capabilities, there may be unpleasant consequences. We’re talking fires, explosions, and chemical disasters. 



Modern Bunker

An improvement to Bunkers that adds a new layer of comfort and protection. It’s a great place to take shelter from a disaster, or to Nugflix and chill. 



Carbon Factory

A whole load of fancy tech stuff takes place behind these doors. Nuggets (well, mostly machines) are hard at work molding components and materials required to take the next step into space. 



New Wonders


Leaning Tower - A familiar tower is now available to be discovered and built. It’s a little askew, but that makes it unique. 


Desert Rose - Welcome to the world’s most luxurious resort. Made from the finest materials, complete with 24-carat gold inlay on the walls. No expense was spared in its construction. 




New stuff:

  • UFO with 3 different actions (destroy buildings, kidnap Nuggets, kidnap animals).
  • Uneducated Nugget Disasters (They can start a plague, cause an explosion, fire).
  • Modern Bunker.
  • Leaning Tower.
  • Desert Rose.
  • Eye of the World. 

  • Carbon Factory. 
  • Medieval and Modern Hats and Masks are added



Bug Fixes:


  • Fixed: Fire causes Nugget AI to break.
  • Fixed: NRE when opening a trading panel after loading a save.
  • Fixed: Big meteor hitting the water would stay on top of water for a short time 
  • Fixed: Opening the quick access menu for creator power did not blur the background for better visibility
  • Fixed: The game would not correctly load the save file after trading menu was initialized causing the save file being corrupted
  • Fixed: Sometimes space boxes would be duplicated and spawned one on top of another one. 
  • Fixed: Creator powers were being casted twice on a target therefore reducing the amount of CP drastically.
  • Fixed: Creator power icons duplication in the quick access menu 
  • Fixed: An issue when a nugget dies in the water, previously he would still float on the water
  • Fixed: Shock and Awe status would cause nuggets to get stuck and stand still
  • Fixed: Decals were being reset to be “On” every single time the game was reloaded. All the save settings are now being saved correctly. 
  • Fixed: Previously nuggets would not die from fire and other destructive powers while being inside the building that received the damage
  • Fixed: Incorrect label for the steel factory perk

  


General balance changes / Improvements:


  • Reworked Picking system
  • Adjusted How fire shock radius is calculated in order to prevent nuggets that are far away to run away from a fire
  • The size of the bunker panel was increased 
  • Initial bunker capacity was increased from 20 -> 32 spots 
  • The total number of spots for the bunker was changed from 32 -> 64
  • The number of slots in a row was changed from 6 to 8
  • Steel and plastic resources size was enlarged by 50% for better visibility
  • The rest of the resources received  20%, 25% and 40% increase in size
  • Adjusted Steel Factory perk on the research graph to be unlocked before Modern Refineries
  • Modern Refineries now require Steel to be built instead of metal
  • The lifetime of the building that is on fire was increased by 100% in order to allow firefighters to get on time and stop the fire.  
  • Uneducated nuggets working in Carbon, Chemical,  Plastic factories as well as Farm, Hospital, Rehabilitation Center and University can cause a Plague now. 
  • Uneducated Nuggets working in Cement, Clone Center, Eatery, Electronic Components Factory, Engineers Hut, Fiber Factory, Gas Plant, Glass Factory, Oil Tower, Police Station, Steel Factories and Refineries can start a fire 
  • Uneducated Nuggets working in Fuel Factory can cause an Explosion. 
  • Majority of the buildings received an education requirement. Certain buildings that were built in a stone age got those requirements removed. 


Art:

  • Leaning Tower implementation.
  • Bunker modern era upgrade.
  • Desert Rose model implementation.
  • Eye Of The World model implementation.
  • All resource models were updated regarding size, some of them got additional texture upgrade.
  • Carbon Factory was implemented.
