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 Universim Space Age Devlog Part 1

Hello Creators and Future Astronauts,


We know it’s been a while since we last had a full-fledged blog post for The Universim, but today’s going to be a special one - one you’ve eagerly been waiting for! In this blog, we will share more info about the Space Era in The Universim and what awaits us. 


Before we jump into the details, we would like to ask you to be so kind and leave us an honest review on Steam if you’re enjoying our work. Your reviews always put a smile on our faces and we love seeing our fans’ thoughts. Leave a review here.



PLANETS 


The Universim will be filled with hundreds of different planets, all of which can be colonized. Each planet will have a specific ‘type’ and, prior to colonization, may look similar to each other. The Universim will have the following planet types: 


Terrestrial planet. These planets are filled with life and flora. They are ready to be immediately colonized and won’t require much work on your side. Well, except for establishing a new colony.  They’re similar in condition to the Mother Planet you’re used to playing on. These planets are rare and are rich in resources; finding one is definitely going to be an event!






Barren Planet. This will be the most common type of planet in The Universim. These planets are dead on the surface, but may contain a good amount of resources, including a very rare resource - Unobtanium. Unobtanium will be used in the manufacturing of Drones and other valuable items.



Lava Planet. Some planets will have extreme surface temperatures that will require special technology to colonize. These spicy planets, and Drones in particular, will play a significant role in such colonization. Lava planets are very challenging, but they might yield an obsessive amount of valuable resources. 


Super work in progress


Ice Planet. Similar to lava planets, ice planets are hard to manage with their frosty surface. You’ll need to use plenty of resources to melt surface ice and stabilize temperatures to an acceptable level for your nuggets to survive. Though it may be difficult, going through these challenges will likely prove worthwhile.



Toxic Planet. Similar to the Lava and Ice Planets, Toxic Planet environments will be very hostile for nuggets and bring with them plenty of challenges.



We designed this system that will give us the ability to create planets with unique characteristics. Visually speaking, planets will have the aforementioned distinguished environments that will be revealed as you terraform them, making them sustainable for life. As you terraform planets, you will slowly see those changes around you. Clouds and fog will start appearing as your atmosphere recovers, toxic smog and clouds will be cleaned out, and your planet will start looking less grim. 



Certain planets will be filled with resources of different types, but others will have a scarce amount of resources. Our complex system responds to visual changes and will adjust environmental lighting to match a planet's characteristics. Things are very connected on this side of the game, and we’ll talk more about this detailed system later on.





Atmosphere and Oxygen 

Two important planet characteristics are Atmosphere and Oxygen. 


Atmosphere


Atmosphere drastically improves the lives of your Nuggets. The main contributor for the atmosphere is, obviously, Oxygen. Additionally, at a certain level of oxygen, your trees and lakes will contribute to both atmosphere and oxygen levels. 



Without Atmosphere, your planet will often be bombarded by passing meteorites. Not having an atmosphere will also influence the birth rate of the Nuggets, animal population, clouds, natural disasters, and transportation. 



Since Oxygen is directly connected to the Atmosphere, it will be one of the largest contributors to the overall state of the planet.


You have also probably noticed some updates to our Environment panel.



A planet will have scarce oxygen levels or none at all. Without any oxygen on the planet, your Nuggets will be forced to wear spacesuits in order to breathe. During this time, Nuggets will have very limited mobility as they will need to constantly refill their oxygen tanks to stay alive.



As you progress with restoring the plant’s oxygen, you will see the atmosphere shift in appearance. The planet will slowly start changing its colors. As oxygen levels improve, you will start seeing life on the planet. Natural disasters will return, but Meteor Strikes won’t be as frequent.




Similar to how any planet can be terraformed and cleaned to sustain life, every planet can also be ruined by any reckless progress by the Nuggets. 


Since the atmosphere is directly linked to water and trees, if you’re being reckless with those resources and fail to replenish them, your planet will start to lose oxygen and its atmosphere. This loss can lead to a lack of breathable oxygen and the death of your population. Low atmosphere will also inflict temperature changes and see an increase in pollution. Remember, everything is connected in our game and there are a lot of calculations happening behind the scenes. 


Pollution and Temperature


Temperature and Pollution are the secondary factors that will influence your planet look and define the hostility of the planets. 



Certain planets will have a toxic environment and will therefore be considered polluted (your Mother Planet can be drastically affected by pollution as well). As your civilization progresses forward, more and more factories and machinery will be created, which will slowly lead to the decrease of the planet's quality and potential death. As you produce pollution, and without proper management, it will start affecting everything around you. Your nuggets will get sick, toxic clouds will appear on the planet, and your lakes will become polluted. Haze will also cover your planet and affect the temperature.

To fight rising pollution levels, you’ll need to build parks, research filters for your factories, and positively contribute to nature by planting trees and restoring lakes. 



Temperature will influence the appearance of Blizzards and Firestorms. Trees will be especially affected by fluctuations in temperature, resulting in a decrease of oxygen when they’re burned down. In order to restore the temperature, you will have to utilize Temperature Generators as well as a Terraformer building. 



When your planet is unbalanced, the temperature will fluctuate every year. Year by year, the planet will become colder or hotter until it ultimately becomes a lava or ice planet. Change will be gradual and you’ll have plenty of time to react by recovering the natural balance of the planet. You also can use Thermo Generators to keep temperature balanced. Like other thermoforming buildings, Thermo Generators are going to be pretty expensive to maintain, but they will give you the quickest results.


As you’ve probably noticed, a lot of those systems are interconnected so make sure to keep your planets healthy!


How to Colonize the Planet?


Alright Nugg Armstrongs, as many of you know, the colonization process of other planets consists of multiple steps. 



Step 1. Locate the planet. Nuggets are curious creatures eager to explore. The Observatory will be a starting point for the Space Age and will ultimately unlock the Space Map to locate new planets. It will also help you receive certain signals and distress calls from space. 




Step 2. Prepare for launch. In order to learn how to fly, you need to help your Nuggets to survive the Mother Planet and help them progress through the Modern Age. From this point, you should be able to build your first colonization rocket in the Cosmodrome. 



The Cosmodrome is the true starting point for your adventure. In this building, you will be able to pack your Colonization rocket with useful space goodies that you will bring to other planets. Be sure to plan carefully! Each colonization rocket only has a certain amount of space. You will have a variety of things to bring on board (i.e. crew members, resources, and DRONES). At this point, you probably know enough about Nuggets and, if not, go back to God School by restarting the game.



Besides that, each rocket will have reservoirs, oxygen tanks, and batteries. This should allow you to survive for some time on another planet, but don’t procrastinate for too long. Otherwise, you will most likely need to send another crew... 



DRONES 


Drones are designed to withstand the extreme conditions of alien planets. They’re fast and effective, but building them will require spending a valuable resource - Unobtanium. Similar to Nuggets, Drones will possess certain characteristics. 



Health - A drone’s health can be depleted in multiple ways, but they all require physical force. Certain external forces such as sarlaccs, alien attacks, exile village attacks, or your own creator powers will be able to destroy the drones. Once damaged, their health cannot be restored without specific perks that can be unlocked in the research tree. 



Charge - Similar to a Nugget’s stamina, charge is what makes the Drone go. Drones will have to return to their building in order to recharge. As you progress forward, you will get an opportunity to learn a perk that will allow your other drones to recharge each other which will improve your drones further. 



Furthermore, drones are not only a great tool to use on hostile planets, but they can also be used on your Mother Planet. Certain buildings will allow the use of drones as workers. Each drone will be as efficient as 3 Nuggets, so make sure to use them to improve your infrastructure. Drones are quick and can carry a large amount of resources; advantages that should help you in your space exploration and colonization.  



Step 3. Colonization. The colonization of the planet does not simply end by landing on the planet. Based on the planet’s conditions, you will need to build specific structures that will help improve quality of life. Some of those structures include: 


  • Terraformer
  • Oxygen Generator 
  • Hydro Collider 
  • Cloud Generator 
  • Space Harvester 


Terraformer - The terraformer is one of the main building blocks of planet terraforming. This structure will consume resources and slowly start to terraform the planet, which will slowly restore life on the planet within a specific radius. 



Oxygen Generator - Based on the planet's condition, you might be required to place the oxygen generator. From the name of it, you might’ve already guessed its purpose. This building is needed to restore oxygen levels on the planet. 



Hydro Collider - Certain planets might be overwhelmed with lava or be entirely empty. The Hydro Collider is a quick solution for the problem. Utilize this building if you need to fill the lakes or even drain them. As the planet’s quality is restored, your lakes will be full, but it definitely won’t be cheap. 




Cloud Generator - By collecting water and processing it through this building, your Nuggets will be able to create clouds! And not just any clouds, but rainy clouds. These rainy clouds will accumulate near an empty lake and begin to fill it. One by one, they will restore the water level on your planet and, even though this restoration technique is cheap, it requires more time to accomplish its task compared to the Hydro Collider. 



Space Harvester - Certain Planets will possess completely new and unique resources that won’t be found on your Mother Planet. In order to harvest those resources, you will need to utilize Harvesters. These machine mining vehicles will be able to obtain alien resources and transport them back to the processing center where they will be transformed into resources that your Nuggets can use. 




Since we have a lot to cover for the Space Age, this blog post is merely part 1 of 2. We still have plenty to show you and tell.


Our goal is to give you dynamic gameplay where you can choose your own route to colonization. Our team is extremely excited to be working on the Space Age and we’re going full speed!
