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.

Sky High Patch V0.0.37 Is Now Live




Surprise, Surprise!


We know we’re a bit earlier than we promised. Previously, we said we’re going to do Patch releases every other month. But, we’ve been getting a couple of negative reviews on our Steam page from impatient people who feel like we abounded the game. Here at Crytivo, we want to do what we can to avoid negative reviews. The Universim is our baby and we want it to shine. So please if you enjoy The Universim please go ahead and leave us to review here, it means a lot to us.


It’s challenging, but we will try to do updates more frequently now, we’re committed to keeping our fans happy, even it means keeping our developers in the office overnight, every night (they enjoy it so much anyways). Remember our programmers get one extra Redbull per day with every positive review we receive, so let’s pump them up.



This patch comes with a few new toys and some excellent quality-of-life improvements. Going forward, we’ll be spending some time on refactoring existing systems for release alongside the new content. We want to make things a little clearer and tweak features that may be frustrating or confusing. If there are any specific systems you think we should look at, drop us your suggestions below or on Discord! It’s time to polish The Universim to a fine sheen. 


Now, let’s get to it!


New Stuff


Cosmodrome



Yeeaah, baby! We’re finally heading to space! Well, into orbit for now, to be clear. This is the initial release of the Space Cosmodrome, adding functionality to the shell-of-a-building we added to the game in the last patch. You can play around with the glorious new UI (seriously, kudos to our awesome UI artists)! You’ll be able to build Defence Satellites that enable ground-to-air defense capabilities for Defence Towers. Towers will now be able to destroy meteors and other space/air threats that come your way. To improve accuracy and reaction times, you will need to have a few Defence Satellites orbiting around the planet. 



Be careful with the parts you choose for your satellites, though! Some parts might not be particularly suitable for your desired satellite. They might have poor lifespans, or, even worse, high failure rates that can cause the satellite to go boom before reaching orbit. 



In the future, there will be two additional satellites to choose from. The Communication Satellite and Exploration Satellite. The first will quite clearly allow you to communicate, but who is listening out there in space? The other variety can be sent to distant planets to assess them for colonization. As you can see, there’s some cool stuff coming. Please give the system a go and let us know what you think!






Boomers


These are specially-trained Nuggets who aim to deliver specially-designed packages to specifically-designated targets. Explosive packages, if that wasn’t clear. Exile Villages may send one or two of these agents your way if you refuse to cooperate with them. Keep an eye and an ear out for screaming. No, not from your frightened citizens. Boomers scream all the way from the Exile Village to your civilization. Stealth isn’t part of their training. 












Nuclear Plant


Highly effective at producing energy, but extremely dangerous to keep around. For now, this building will use Fuel to generate electricity, but Uranium will replace ordinary Fuel once you find a constant supply. This building outputs incredible amounts of energy, capable of powering your civilization’s electricity needs almost entirely on its own. However, it requires constant cooling. The cores at the heart of all Nuclear Plants are designed to be cooled by water. A water container is used to feed the cooling system. It depletes over time, and once the water is gone, the core goes into meltdown. Once this occurs, there’s no way to prevent the Nuclear Plant from exploding, releasing radioactive pollution that will last for years. This will cause your Nuggets to constantly get sick, requiring more Hospitals to keep the civilization somewhat functional. 




We are reworking the pollution system as a result of this, to ensure you receive better feedback on what’s going on. 


Solar Panels


It’s basically free energy. No pollution to worry about, zero cost to keep it running once its built, and pretty much an all-around guilt-free energy generator. It’s not as effective as other sources of electricity, but it won’t slowly suffocate the planet like the rest. They’ll even follow the direction of the sun. Cool, huh? Build a farm of these and show us your design!



Massage Salon Upgrade


Nuggets have never looked so relaxed! They must have had a refreshing stay at one of the new massage palaces. They work hard, so why not treat them to some me-time? 



Cowsmetics


Nuggets are positively glowing by the time they leave this building, especially if they went to the spa just before. They may look a little silly, depending on their personal styles, but a great makeover makes anyone feel special. Get your cowsmetics, right here!



Oxygen 


Reduced oxygen level will cause nuggets sickness. The lower the oxygen level the higher chance for the nuggets to get sick. If the oxygen level will reach 15% or below, nuggets will start slowly to die out. Keep planting more trees in order to help your civilization to sustain on the planet. Add parks in order to ensure further development of your civilization. 


Twitch Elections


A new addition to our twitch integration system is the ability to vote in civilization elections via twitch chat. This will let chat members decide who will become the leader of the planet! Also chat member nugget are now prioritized for elections, so chat member nuggets will always end up in the race.

  • Temple Building improvements (number of workers increases chance to generate a new believer)
  • Added a new pollution mechanic that causes Nuggets to get sick/die based on oxygen levels.
  • Exile events now will have a better distribution between each other leading to a better variety of events that will be happening in the game.
  • Large exile villages will interact more frequently with the player 
  • Sacrificing a nugget causes a higher impact on the faith level

  • Defense Tower Level 0 range was changed from 30 -> 14
  • Defense Tower Level 0 range was changed from 35 -> 16
  • Delay between music tracks was increased from 10 seconds to 10 minutes 
  • Battery capacity was increased from 100, 000 -> 250, 000
  • Temple received additional sounds

  • Sacrificing a nugget awards with a nugget believer 
  • Multiple new research icons were added 
  • Assigning nuggets to the temple increased the chance of receiving a believer with each assigned nugget.
  • Reworked Wind System. Previously wind system was changing very rapidly and it was extremely inconsistent. This caused the usage of Wind Turbines very ineffective. The current system changes the wind more frequently but by the small steps and based on the current wind strength, leading to a more consistent wind and improved Wind Turbine energy generation.
