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.

New Content is here - Melting Shoe Patch Available Now!

Greetings, Creators!


Welcome to another exciting patch day with the latest release of v42! In this update, we poured some much-requested love into the earlier stages of the game (notably, the Stone Age), alongside other improvements that are essential to keeping the later stages in good standing. Let’s run through the improvements to current systems, rebalanced AI, reworked mating, and some sneaky bugs we have stomped thanks to your feedback.


We also made this new short video explaining what The Universim is for new players and hey maybe you can find new footage that you never seen before.





Stone Age Firefighters

With the introduction of crazier fire, we had to revisit our firefighters to make their crazy match the fire’s level of crazy. Fires pop up a lot, either as a result of mother nature or an unfortunate accident on your part. It’s important to have competent (ok, somewhat competent) Nuggets running around with buckets of water from the early stages. Give a warm welcome to the new firefighters!

New Quest Panel

Ever wonder about the life trials and tribulations your Nuggets go through? We've added a Stories Panel where you can keep track and see the progress of your civilization's experiences! Think of it like a nice little scrapbook that you keep as your world grows up. We’ll be adding more quests in the future so keep an eye out for updates to the Stories.




Fire Quest

Now more than ever, firefighters will be doing their best to explain proper safety guidelines to the rest of the Nuggets. Despite their efforts, there’s still going to be a lot of work for you to do. In extreme situations, like the imminent destruction of your city, it may be a good time to step in. In order to do so as effectively as possible, you will have to learn the proper approach to dealing with fire. Hopefully you get the instructions in time!


Toxic Lakes Quest

Before you enter space, you will have to learn how to smooth out the rougher features of planets along your journey to conquer the galaxy. As your civilization evolves, it produces more and more waste that pollutes the environment. This affects the overall health of your planet and your oceans. Oceans in return become toxic and make your Nuggets’ lives even harder than usual. It is your responsibility to ensure that your civilization stays in top health. In order to achieve that, you might want to learn some additional skills.


New Ocean Shader

The ocean always inspires the imagination and brings joy to the soul… at least the real ones. We changed the look of the planet, vegetation, and animals, but we always kept our oceans the same. As the years went by, our water shader became less appealing and stood out against the higher fidelity assets. We took some time to make it shine. Take a look!



Blizzard & Heatwave

As we worked on all the climate stuff, we had to review our natural disasters. Sandstorms just weren’t cutting it anymore, so we had to add in something new. Introducing Blizzards and Heatwaves! These two disasters will replace Sandstorms and occur based on the current season. No more dust! It’s way worse now. Better get those Forecast Towers and Bunkers built!





Nuggets Oxygen Suffocation

As we get closer to the Space Age, we are slowly reworking certain Nugget indicators. It’s a little difficult for Nuggets to survive without oxygen, so it’s probably a good time to improve how those details are displayed. The Nugget Panel now shows the current oxygen level for the selected Nugget and all effects applied to the oxygen level. Just try keep it above 0 and there won’t be too much trouble.



Not in the build but being worked on: 

  • Roads 
  • Organic simulation on planets
  • Rovers 
  • Rockets
  • Space Port
  • Terraforming 
  • Space Trading
  • Flying Vehicles


Improvements and balance changes


Population

We’ve been hearing that some folks are having an issue with their population and we want to make sure that it’s not a struggle to keep your Nuggets’ numbers up outside of disasters or poor environmental conditions. We’ve made some changes behind the scenes to the population that we hope will be more fun to manage as no one likes to have a sparsely populated ant farm. This will also make disasters a little more forgiving. Please be sure to give us your population feedback in the future so we can always better tune your Nuggets’ wiring to make your guardianship of your hapless Nuggets more rewarding.


Nugget Needs AI

Rewritten from scratch! This AI was responsible for what Nuggets decided to do (or not do). The rewrite has allowed us to fine-tune their behavior and ensure that they will respond to their needs without hesitation. This isn’t like working for a really pushy boss -- Nuggets get to use the bathroom or eat once in a while (and won’t get forced to do both at the same time for the sake of efficiency). This also applies to which needs outweigh others, so Nugget won’t have any more internal conflict about whether to grab a drink or bite into a burger, based on which action is the wiser choice. Faster need fulfillment achieved!


Nugget Combat

Nuggets weren’t very good fighters in the past. Sometimes, they would charge into battle backwards, or become oddly picky about which opponent to fight and run back and forth weighing their options. While this makes for excellent diversionary tactics, it doesn’t work so well if they aren’t intended to be a diversion. Next time your Nuggets engage in combat, keep an eye out for their refined aim and precision!


Temperature affects crops and fishing hut

Previously, Farms and Fisheries weren’t affected by local temperatures. They were pretty binary, based on the seasons. Now the local placement of these facilities will affect how well they operate during winter and summer. For instance, placing a Fishery near a desert biome will keep them running during winter, while mountainous regions could be a bit colder even during summer. 


Planet temperatures rebalanced

In preparation for the colonization of alien planets, we had to revisit our global temperature systems again and calibrate them to more precisely match expected values for each season. Since climates will play such a big role in colonizing planets (and determining their habitability), we needed to ensure it’s a well-balanced system. Plus, it helped introduce Blizzards and Heatwaves. You can thank us later. 


Lightning Strike Creator Power

We reduced the rate of charging Batteries with the Lightning Strike Creator Power. Previously, using a single bolt of lightning would completely charge Batteries, which made other generation systems pretty much obsolete. While Creator Powers are meant to help your civilization and feel powerful, we didn’t want them to make other systems completely redundant. Thus, Lightning Strikes will now only charge Batteries by 25% of their capacity.


Residential Area

We reworked how households operate to make everything way less weird and complicated. The old system saw offspring stay in the same house their entire lives, well after their parents have passed, even if another couple became the new owners. This isn’t an American sitcom about that guy who randomly lives in someone else’s house and eats all the cereal. The same thing applies to if a Nugget loses their spouse and remarries. They will now move into the same house, as opposed to living in two separate houses. While the old way was probably healthier for their marriage, the new way is more efficient for the real estate market. Plus, all of this residential madness made mating really difficult and buggy. No one wants that. 


Other Changes: 

  • UFO appearance rate decreased by 15% 
  • If nugget dies inside the building, his body would appear outside the building 
  • Optimized Research Tree performance
  • Nuggets are able to break out of University and construction AI before completing that AI if needed. 
  • Improved auto building placement
  • Infected nuggets are not being slowed anymore
  • Nuggets that have a low stamina level will lose 30% of their speed
  • Infection zones are not a clickable element in the news messages which upon clicking on them allows you to fly to those locations. 
  • The chance of getting sick from dead bodies was lowered by 50%
  • Dead bodies take 1.5 times longer to decay 
  • Toxic lakes won’t become toxic as fast as they were previously. 
  • Lightning strike could have spawned fire at the start of the game where player was not able to fight with it


UI and Art:

  • Stone age firefighter hut
  • Stone age firefighters outfit
  • Stone age firefighters new animations
  • New Quest UI Panel
  • Reworked Quest UI
  • Ocean Shader
  • Blizzard Shader
  • Heatwave Shader

Fixed: Kickstarter creator power did not apply boost to the nuggets stats

Fixed: Bridges were not destroyed correctly when animals were on top of the bridge

Fixed: Each orator would apply an effect instead of the effect being shared between the group of orators which led to the multiplication of those effects and increased time for reduced happiness.

Fixed: An error would appear when the number of pollution areas was more than 3 

Fixed: Graveyard slots would never be released in certain conditions which would lead to a locked state of those slots.

Fixed: Using Tornado creator power multiple times in a row in a quick sequence could cause an error and break the game. 

Fixed: Connection / socket error that was causing disconnection from Twitch 

Fixed: Viewers could have become exiled which prevented the game from being saved.

Fixed: Trading with exile villages could have caused multiple crashes

Fixed: Exiles could have break the game if the exiled building was destroyed during construction cycle

Fixed: Doctors were getting stuck in the Hospitals and therefore as a result would die due to hunger and thirst 

Fixed: Plastic is now correctly displayed in the resources panel 

Fixed: Trading with exiles would produce a white square and break the game
