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.

Global Warning Patch v0.0.31 is now live!


Greetings, Creators!

We’re back with a delicious assortment of new features! We have had a super productive month here at Crytivo, which may or may not involve that amazing procedural alien planet generation system we keep mentioning ;). It’s going to be glorious! If you’ve been enjoying the game so far, be sure to drop us a review on Steam to let us know your thoughts. We love reading what you have to say! Thanks for sticking with us on this crazy ride.


Shiny new content:


Modern Age scaffolding

We’ve hit maximum velocity in the Modern (Industrial) Age! Mmmm, don’t you just love the smell of freshly-brewed plastic in the morning? Modern buildings deserve modern scaffolding, and that’s exactly what we have for you today. Motivated by your feedback, our devs have gone above and beyond and made it look oh-so-beautiful!



Modern Age building collapse VFX

That rumbling is far too loud to be your stomach! Only a collapsing skyscraper could cause the planet to tremble so spectacularly, thanks to some potent new visual effects. If you really want to destroy the civilization you’ve worked so hard to create, it might as well look and feel awesome. Enjoy!


Fuel Factory

Ah, the sweet smell of gasoline. Did you know that it causes inexplicably rapid armpit hair growth in Nuggets? It’s like they suddenly developed two extra furry arms. Beyond that, Fuel can be burned to create energy and further pollute the environment. You can’t have everything.


Modern Hospital upgrade

Get the crash cart! There are lives that need to be saved! Brand new defibrillators, catheters, ethical practices, and curvy needles have been added to the Modern Hospital. Less death all around!


Modern Reservoir & Well upgrade

It’s starting to look good enough to drink! Store more water than ever and never worry about evaporation again.


Plastic factory

It’s cheap, it’s versatile, and nature absolutely despises it. Say hello to plastic! While it may cause issues later, think about all the awesome stuff you can make with it until then.


Clone Center building

The Clone Center is here (AKA, the Nugget customizer)! This will be the tallest building on the planet. We have shortened it for this initial release so it doesn’t look out of place with everything else, but you’ll be able to upgrade it well into the sky. You can customize and order new Nuggets that will be delivered to you in a capsule with a little ribbon. It’s super classy and only a little creepy.




Cloned Nugget Traits

To spice things up, we added Legendary Traits to all of the Nuggets you genetically engineer. They will be like little heroes running around with hidden (or quite obvious) superpowers. Every Legendary Trait comes with a few bad habits and negative traits. Take the Undying, for example, who will never grow old. However, they sleep for years at a time and can spread diseases far more quickly than other Nuggets when they contract one.


Medieval Warehouse

It’s bigger and more organized than ever! Storage has gotten a lot smarter. Now, if only Nuggets could do the same.


Building Panel

We’re mega proud of this change. After hearing what you all had to say, we revisited the Building List Panel and upped the epicness to 5000. Using this new panel, you can now easily assign Nuggets to buildings, turn shifts on/off, sort buildings by type, view each building’s effect on Happiness/crime and pollution, and (by popular demand) manage things more easily with two upgrade buttons that allow you to either upgrade a single building or every building of similar type. Keep letting us know how we can improve things! Your opinion and suggestions matter!




Medieval Clothing

With names like Dolce Nuggana, Louis Nuiggon, Nuggani, Nuggberry, and Ralph Naugren, Nugget fashion is on the rise. More creative and colorful brands are taking over from older trends. Giiiirl, you’re going to look fabulous!



So Many Factories

Have you been keeping track of how many factories we’re adding lately? It’s a little nuts. However, they are crucial for the future of your civilization. They produce advanced materials that will be used for constructing buildings and technology like Airports and Rocket Launchpads, which naturally includes tech like rockets, drones, rovers, and satellites. Polish your helmets, everyone, we’re blasting off soon!

Known Issues:


  • You may experience longer loading times than usual when starting a new game. Currently, this can take anywhere from 5-10 minutes. We are investigating the problem and we would be grateful if anyone who experiences this issue can contact us on Discord so we can get some more information about what could be causing it.
  • A fair amount of players have been experiencing an issue where the Nugget population count seems to stall at around 200-220. We have tweaked the mating balance in this patch to try and address this, but another problem remains where large groups of Nuggets die at the same time for no apparent reason. If you notice anything suspicious like this, please save and send us your save file so we can find the cause.


Are you excited about the new patch? A lot of hard work is being done each and every day by our amazing devs. We want to give a shout out to everyone for their loyalty, creativity, and drive, which includes the awesome testers and translators who offer so much help. And, of course, we want to thank the entire community for being so supportive and wonderful. You always rock! If you love what we’re doing or have some thoughts on the game, please drop us your honest review on Steam.


Let us know how we can make the game even better in the comments below. If you have a few minutes, we would also really appreciate it if you can answer this short survey about your experience with The Universim: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TKGRGST


We are doing our best to polish the game, and we’d like to hear how your most recent experiences have felt. Oh, and before we go, here’s a little teaser for what’s coming:
