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.

Good Weather Patch V0.1.44 Is Now Live

Hello Creators,


We hope you’ve had fun watching your Nuggets truck along the roads and are ready to play with a new bunch of features. Plus a bunch of bugs were hunted down and squished. Our developers worked really hard to deliver the most stable and fun version of The Universim yet. 


Below are some key features that were added or improved in the game. As usual we ask you to leave us a review on Steam if you enjoy what we do. We have really exciting stuff coming your way very, very soon.




Alrighty, let’s get to it:





New Main Menu Screen

The entire Main Menu and Settings were redesigned and improved. Now it’s more clear and hopefully easier to navigate. We will continue improving your user experience as we develop, but at the same time let us know on a discord if there is something missing from our settings.




Game Customization Screen


Natural Disasters

You’ve been asking us to add the ability to play without natural disasters for a while and it’s finally here! Now you can choose how often you’ll have them. You can set it to “Never,” which pretty much means what it says - disasters will never happen on your planet. You can keep it on “Occasional” - this is what we recommend for a balanced experience, or Often - for the players who like it extra spicy.


Wild Animals Attacks

On top of choosing the frequency of the disasters, you can also choose how often Wild animals attack your village. It can also be Often, Occasional or set to Never happen.


Exile Attacks

And finally, you can also tweak Exile attacks with similar parameters. 


We know you wanted these options for a while and we spent a good amount of time making the game fun and engaging no matter what you chose. We hope you’ll love it and of course we’re open for feedback. Let us know on discord.




Nugget Traits

We know a good number of you play The Universim a lot, replaying it over and over and over. To help you keep things fresh, we’re adding the ability for you to customize your Nuggets’ skin tones along with starting Nugget Traits. These Traits will alter your gameplay, check out what our internal QA Team had to say about them:


True Believer: This is an easy mode trait. This trait brings in a lot of extra CP when starting a new game. This can help the player in many different areas. The downside is that there will be more UFOs that can steal Nuggets away.


Arnold: A fun Easy Mode trait. It allows things to be delivered faster which speeds up the early part of the game. However, they also eat a lot of food and tire easily.


Matenator: A very fun trait. Also easy mode. This also speeds up the early part of the game by greatly increasing population for a few generations until it breeds/dies out. This is a great trait for those players who struggle with population early in the game. The downside is that these Nuggets will die from exhaustion before their time, and they also eat a lot of food!


Fugitive: Fun and Easy mode trait as Nuggets move fast for a few generations. However, Nuggets may steal some of your resources!


Nugg Norris: This is a hard mode trait. Nuggets start off very strong, and they can build things very fast. However, Nuggets severely damage other Nuggets for a few generations. This can cause many injuries and death. So be careful!


Greenlander: At a glance, this trait may seem easy to play, but it is not. While these Nuggets will create trees, they have shorter lifespans and consume a lot of water. 


Highlander: This is an easy/normal mode trait as it boosts the population early in the game. It's REALLY fun when Elderly mating is active and all the old Highlander's breed. However, if one gets infected, it can RAPIDLY spread. The player must be vigilant to keep any potential infections from starting or spreading. 


Coffin Dodger: This is the hardest trait in the game to play. Once zombies start to spread, it can be an incredible challenge to bring them under control and may burn a lot of CP. This is recommended for more hardcore players.


Each Trait will need to be unlocked by playing the game.


We will continue reviewing Traits, and potentially adding new ones, if you guys will like ‘em. Please let us know on our Discord if you have any ideas what Traits we can add or change in the future.



Overpacked Quest 

An enterprising Nugget wants your help to open his business. In order to do so, you need to place a Couriers hut and deliver the boxes to appropriate mailboxes.




Sitting On Powder Quest

Nuggets may not have arms, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be armed. One Nugget who is Pro Gun is asking for you to help elect the Pro Gun candidate. 




Improvements and balance changes:


Merge of Wells and Reservoirs

Wells and Reservoirs are now merged into a single building. Previously, having two buildings would often confuse everyone. Since both buildings’ functionality is to preserve water, one building provided water purely for the buildings, while wells provided water only for Nuggets. We decided to simplify that aspect of the game and merged those two buildings into one. Now the well part of the building will take water from the reservoir that is being filled with water pumps.  




Perk Finder

With each patch, the amount of perks was only increasing, and it got to the point where it was a chore to find it in the research tree. This is why we decided to add some extra help that allows a player to find and identify the needed perk. Each perk deremoveion now has a small eye icon next to the Perk Requirement. Clicking on that eye will bring you to the required perk. 



Improved trait / skin color inheritance

Due to the addition of the customization screen before the game starts, we also reviewed how our traits and skin color were passed on, and we decided to improve that aspect of the game as well. Previously, your Nuggets would get the trait from their parents no matter what, and therefore, your civilization was always limited to a certain amount of traits. The current system provides a high chance of passing one of the parent’s traits, but it also has a chance to generate a new one or be left out without a trait. 


Skin color of the Nuggets, similar to traits, was passed down based on the parents color skin. It was either from a father or a mother. We added some changes to the system, and now it will take a middle color between two colors of your parents. This way their kids can have slightly different shades of the colors based on their parents skin color. 





Street lights Simulation

Previously, all street lights located on the modern roads were turned on all at once when night time was falling. It created an illusion of a lightbulb that would turn on immediately when you flip a switch. It was breaking the immersion of the game and didn't feel right. We added some randomization to it. Now certain lights might flikker on while others will turn on after a short delay.



Fish respawn in the lakes

To our surprise, this was one of the most asked for features to be added to the game. When the lake/ocean would dry out, all the fish would be destroyed and never replenished. This was causing a lot of players to constantly build and destroy their fishing piers. With the new system, the fish will regenerate back to its original state based on the amount of water in the lake. So if the lake does not have water, there won’t be any fish, but as you add more and more water, the fish will start regenerating slowly, and based on the amount of water the regeneration, speed will be increased. 


Construction pause button 

This is another request that was asked for on multiple occasions. Sometimes, when a lot of buildings are placed all at once, Nuggets will do their best to build all the buildings in order they were placed. But if there were not enough resources for the first placed building, they would try to deliver resources that they have to other buildings. In some situations this caused a pretty long delay for that first building. The Pause button allows you to stop the construction, and any delivery of the resources. Now Nuggets will concentrate on the other buildings that are being constructed first. 


Save Game option

The Save Game option was added to the ESC menu. It will be available immediately after the epicenter is placed. A lot of players, who were not familiar with the game, were struggling with our unique saving system. Quite often, it led to frustration and confusion. We reviewed that system and added a save game option to the ESC menu. The Archive is still being used to autosave the game, but you no longer need to place it in order to save the game. 


Continue button was added to the Main Menu

You’ll now find a new continue button that allows you to continue from your last saved game, getting players back to their game faster.


Save Filters

Buildings Menu and Nuggets Menu will save the filters now for 5 minutes before being reset to default settings. Previously, opening one of those windows, selecting certain filters, and then closing it would reset all the filters immediately and you had to go through this whole process once again. Not any more.


UI Scaling & Saving Settings

While completely reworking the settings screen, we also went through our current settings and made sure that they are all working properly. Besides that, we also tested our UI scaling on very high and low resolutions and adjusted our UI to work correctly. 


Improved Nuggets speed on the road 

Roads will provide an additional speed to Nuggets which will allow your Nuggets to zip around your sprawling world and transport materials more quickly. 


Improved Couriers and General Transportation AI

We reviewed the efficiency of our Nuggets delivering resources to their destination and found some aspects that needed to be improved. Couriers and Nuggets that transport resources will choose the most efficient route to deliver resources to the destination based on a score system that evaluates distance, the amount of Nuggets that are delivering those resources as well as other Nugget needs. 


Improved Engineers AI 

With additions of the roads, instead of helping our engineer Nuggets, it actually increased the travel time for them due to incorrect building prioritization by engineers. We reviewed & improved AI in order to make sure that they will always select the most efficient path to the buildings, and they will make a better decision on which building they should be fixing next based on the distance, building health, and their needs.  


Option to disable camera shake

Out settings received an additional setting for people who have motion sickness. Now you will be able to turn off camera shake when you bump into the buildings or when any explosions or rumblings are happening in the game. 


 Additional Improvements: 

  • Construction supporters are limited to 10
  • Nuggets will be removed from the buildings if it is being turned off manually by the player
  • If crop is not selected, farm will display an icon above it
  • Nuggets drink twice as fast as before
  • Сars and Roads appear at the same time after industrialization perk is researched


Building Boundary Changes

We heard you say that buildings were spread too far apart - especially on the shorelines. Pumps and Fishing Huts can now be placed much closer together. Regular buildings had the needed space between them reduced by 50%. This will also allow you to build a bit closer to roads as well. 


Bug Fixes:

Fixed: The roads were not showing up properly for hardware supported mac users.

Fixed: Dead Nugget quest did not trigger a second part of the quest which led to the quest failure. 

Fixed: Le Cupidon would cause connection lines between Nuggets to stay on the screen.

Fixed: Nuggets in some cases would not select the best and optimal way to reach a resource

Fixed: The game had a chance to crash if it was saved and loaded while buildings and ground were on fire. 

Fixed: Road would not be correctly built based on evolution tower placement

Fixed: In some cases Crytivo Club on the main screen would not show up

Fixed: Rename a Nugget quest could have been completed by utilizing Nuggets found in the space box 

Fixed: Nuggets sometimes would repeatedly reenter the road 

Fixed: Construction site supporters would not show up immediately when assigned to the construction site

Fixed: Building area radius would blink when clicked at night time

Fixed: Random Nuggets and hunters were getting stuck on the roads 

Fixed: Building ghosters would not scale correctly on certain resolutions

Fixed: Multiple issues with culling system that would remove parts of the world objects from the screen 

Fixed: Nugget would get stuck if a building was shut off while he was heading to it 

Fixed: Added the correct Blizzard sound

Fixed: Camera sometimes would flip over when “Fly To” button was clicked in order to move to important location

Fixed: Creator powers would not work consistently during pause menu

Fixed: Nuggets’ tooltip staying up on a screen from the Nugget panel

Fixed: Graveyards would keep slots reserved even after the grave disappeared, preventing new Nuggets to be added to the graveyard

Fixed: Unable to cancel archive while it is being constructed

Fixed: Quest icons did not show up consistently on the game load

Fixed: Nuggets would proceed going to the hospital despite being healed before reaching it 

Fixed: Exile Airport had a status icon that indicated no water or electricity 

Fixed: Exile village orators and priest were constantly adding a negative effect which was breaking the game after some time

Fixed: Incorrect Archive Icon

Fixed: Pre-Medieval warehouse was missing the storage space for the glass

Fixed: Firefighters modern building was unlockable without unlocking prior age building

Fixed: Grass was not appearing in the game

Fixed: Incorrect windows sporting while being in the construction menu

Fixed: Connect Button to twitch would not always be clickable

Fixed: Twitch Connection Issues

Fixed: Drinking water in wells carries over between upgrades

Fixed: Incorrect name handling during Twitch Integration

Fixed: Nugget kids were able to wonder underground in some cases

Fixed: Icon filter in the Nuggets menu



UI and Art:

Completely redesigned Main Menu

Completely redesigned Settings Menu

New Nugget customization screen that includes Nuggets Skin Color Tone Picker and disaster frequencies selections toggles.

Unique Nugget Traits perks design

Redesigned and merged water well with water reservoir UI Panel

New - Farm No Crop Selected Icon
