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.

THE CORE Patch v0.1.49 is Now Live!

Hello Creators,


We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. The Crytivo team was hard at work on this upcoming patch and we are happy to introduce you to a bunch of new additions and updates.


As we work on the Space Age certain systems that will be used in that era are slowly being introduced to the early game. We hope you will enjoy this new patch and will have fun with the new mechanics. 


Now let’s dig in and introduce you to some of the newest features.



Expedition Camp


Strange things always draw Nuggets attention and the hole created by Sarcalass wasn’t an exception. The Nuggets, in all of their wisdom, immediately started jumping down into the darkness. After a few broken bones, Nuggets finally realized they might need to be a bit more selective with who they tossed into the hole. Those chosen Nuggets returned with new and helpful items that allowed them to advance their knowledge and boost their confidence. These “elite” Nuggets got the name Explorer and received their own building, the Expedition Camp. 




Discovery Points

As we start to move into the space age, some old and a few new technologies will use “Discovery Points” to unlock them. For now these points can be earned through successful Expeditions. Later on we'll be adding other ways for you to earn these same points if expeditions aren’t your flavor of adventure. 



Clouds

Puffy and fluffy. This is how we like them. New clouds are being introduced with this patch. We changed how our cloud generation system works. Alien planets will have other worldly shapes that will dazzle your imagination. Although Mother Planet received more standard looking clouds they have a pretty cool effect when you fly through them. We can’t wait for you to try and tell us what you think!



Rain and Snowfall 

The revamp of clouds required us to make some changes to the existing rain system, but we didn’t just rework it. We also improved it. Rain will now splash when it hits the ground or water. During winter the clouds will also snow. We think it’s pretty cool.



Era Changes

We made another big change that a lot of you asked for. Now you can select buildings from different eras. Customize your cities the way you want and create a unique look. Certain structures that are built automatically, like roads or the black market will still progress according to the research tree, but for any other building you can select the era you want once it’s unlocked.  



Improvements and balance changes


Town Hall UI 

Town hall UI received was reworked. Previously numbers indicated in the Town Hall UI confused some players. We changed the system, so it will use the percentage value. This percentage will indicate your total adult population that can be assigned to jobs. By default this value will stay at 75%. Which means that 25% of your population will be reserved as laborers. The system will also stop players from setting the number above 90%. This should prevent the issue where players were left with no laborers and the game progression halted. 



Perks Rebalance 


A good number of perks were reworked to use the new Discovery Points system, like “A Dash of Lightning” that aren’t integral to progression. This way we will be able to test out the new system but also not force players into Expeditions if they don’t want to.



Planet Seed Expansion 

Previously the player would get a random planet from 128 different options. The number increased to 999,999. We can’t wait to see what you find!


Save System Improvement

Previously the game was allowed to have only one autosave file that was constantly rewritten. Now the game allows you to have multiple. So say you encounter a bug (what? impossible!) or wish you placed a building a hair to the left you can backtrack further from your most recent auto save. The number of auto save files can be changed in Settings / Game. 


Also, while being in the save menu, you can overwrite your existing saves without a need to create new ones. AND it's even faster now. We just really wanted to save the day here. (I’ll show myself out)



New Death Filters 

Now you can filter what death messages you would like to receive in the message system. In Settings / News you can select to have “All Death Messages On,”  “All Deaths Messages Off,” “First 100 Deaths by Old Age,” and “No Old Age Death” notifications. 



Water, Food and Defense Ministers 

Ministers received slight rebalances which should provide a better experience and prevent situations where you end up with no food or water. Defense Ministers will more efficiently spread defense towers across the city. 



Other Improvements

  • Various Graphic System Additions & Enhancements
  • Shadow Quality Settings
  • Anti Aliasing Settings
  • Graphics Enhancements
  • Grass now has shadows
  • Improved splash effects when a Vortex ball hits the water. 
  • Settings now has a new section: “Input”. Anything related has been moved there. 
  • Added Mouse look sensitivity and Zoom Sensitivity. 
  • Eatery crime generation reduced.
  • Exiles can now use the player road system and generate roads themselves.
  • Prisons, Rehab, and Police stations will now accept nuggets dropped into them. 
  • Various improvements to the Nugget AI
  • Exiles can no longer build over player owned areas. Players can no longer build over exile owned areas. 
  • Hunters can no longer be quest givers. This was causing... issues.
  • The settings screen, and all options and deremoveions, are now fully localized.
  • Added better 21:9 and 32:9 support to the UI systems.
  • The UI can now be zoomed out (shrunk) a bit more using the settings slider.
  • Subtitles are no longer hidden when the game is paused.

Fixed: A bug that allowed building ghosters to rotate too fast (on very powerful systems) when pressing Q or E. 

Fixed:  Some bugs with Shadow Distancing not working properly after loading a planet. 

Fixed: Auto Reconnect to Twitch. If you are disconnected. The game will keep trying to reconnect to twitch for 30 seconds before timing out

Fixed: A bug when TKing a nugget, from a boat, using the quick TK option. 

Fixed: Various bug fixes to TK/Vortex
