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.

Tourbillion Patch v0.1.47 is Now Live!

Hello Creators,


This is our first patch in 2021. Yay! We hope everyone was able to see The Universim special event during New Year’s day. If not, don’t worry, you can see what you missed in the short gif below.  



After everyone was done celebrating on January 2nd, we got back to work on a bunch of improvements and even some new systems. 


We know a good number of you can’t wait for Space age to be released, and honestly neither can we. But we ask you to bear with us a little bit longer. Every system and every bug fix brings us one step closer to that goal. We want to release Space when it’s ready, so that you’ll have a great time playing The Universim and exploring new planets endlessly. You may have noticed that our patches are a little bit smaller as of late. This is due to us shifting more forces to work on Space Age in order to release them in the shortest possible time, while still providing new features and life improvement changes to the game. We are extremely thankful for your support. As always, if you enjoy the game, make sure to leave us a review on Steam!



Now let's dive in.

Garages 

We had roads, we had cars, but no parking space for them? Welp we had to fix this issue. Garages will provide a limited number of cars that your nuggets can use. Based on the era you are in, garages will consume either oil or fuel in order to function properly. If you’re out of those resources, your nuggets will have to learn to walk again. But if you have amazing oil magnate skills, you won’t have to worry about that issue! Each garage will display the total number of resources that are being consumed by all of your garages on the billboard. Individual garage stats can be seen by opening the garage panel itself.





Medieval Cars 

Time to get rolling with Steam! Let us introduce you to our own interpretation of cars in the Medieval era! You heard it right. Your nuggets will be able to get a headstart with that technology and start driving in the Medieval era. Maybe those cars are not as efficient as Modern cars, but they definitely can beat pedestrians in a race. 


Telekinesis (Vortex Power) 

For a very long time we wanted to simplify the collection of resources via creator powers. Telekinesis provided great interactions with the world and individual objects, but it was far away from the best tool to use in order to bring all the materials to a construction site. For this patch we decided to change that and expand on our Telekinesis creator power. By pressing and holding telekinesis for a longer time, you’ll be able to create a vortex that is so strong, that it will suck everything nearby into a whirlwind. In addition to, picking up Nuggets, stones, and trees, you’ll be able to grab what’s made in buildings like, refined wood and stone, metal, glass, cement and etc. Then with those resources in your creator clutches, you’ll be able to supply a construction site or a building upgrade. Just be careful that no nuggets are being harmed during your use of your fancy new creator power! With great power comes great… well, you get the idea.



Water System Improvement

As we are working on some new alien planets, we had a need to expand our functionality with water. Starting from this patch, you will be able to use the Vortex to pick up water in the oceans and move it wherever you need it. 


Tutorials ( Part 1 )

New features and mechanics are always cool and exciting to work with, but we wanted to make sure that anyone who picks up our game will know what to do. What’s the best way to ensure that? Of course tutorials. Starting from this patch, we will be adding tutorials for the most confusing systems and mechanics in the game. This will be an ongoing task for us. For this patch, we created a backbone system for our tutorials and added some basic ones. Next patch will expand on that system and provide even more content for our new players. But if this isn’t your first time ruling over Mother Planet, or if you're that kind of daredevil, you’ll have the option to turn them off when starting a new game.



Brightness Setting

We received a lot of feedback after we released our last patch about the brightness in the game. Since everyone has various monitors, the brightness is different for each player. For some our “standard” setting was perfect, but for others it was not so good. We decided to hand over that control to the player and added a Brightness Setting screen. We hope this improvement makes your day a little brighter, or darker, or somewhere in between. ;)



Improvements and balance changes



Snow Changes

Some player’s reported that winter was too bright and buildings were too hard to find. Our initial intent was to create a cold feeling for the player, but in the process we overshot it. The brightness of snow was reduced and it won’t cover 100% of the buildings anymore making them more visible.



Static Combine

We added a very experimental setting to the game that can be found in the gameplay settings. The setting is called “Static Combine”. It basically allows the game to combine multiple similar objects into one, which increases the overall performance of the game. The biggest performance improvement we saw was on the lower end machines, but since this is still experimental and we can only test on so many computers, we wanted to make sure people could still play the game if something goes wrong.


Building Progress

Previously all the buildings that were built automatically (Black Market, Temple etc.) the player couldn’t tell how long it would take to finish. Now clicking those buildings will show the construction progress. 


Status Icons interaction

You can use creator powers on Status Icons in order to interact with its associated building. For example, you can use Healing creator power in order to restore the durability of the building. Regular clicking on an icon will still bring your camera to it.



Bug Fixes:


Fixed: Korean language had major issues with the characters display 

Fixed: Removed outdated Narrator Dialogue regarding wells in the game

Fixed: UFO’s caused nuggets to get stuck in the fearing state and caused UFO itself to get stuck in one place

Fixed: CP usage error when a very small amount of trees was created

Fixed: Bug that would cause the Camera to get stuck when LMB and RMB  were pressed at once.

Fixed: Quest Givers sometimes would end up underground 

Fixed: Bugs related to Tesla quest, which caused the disappearance of the parts and not being able to complete the quest

Fixed: Debris 

Fixed: Visual bug fixes related to roads and bridges

Fixed: Visual / Shadow / snow issues on medieval bridges

Fixed: Name a nugget quest could have been completed by renaming the same nugget twice

Fixed: Planet filters incorrectly displayed information in certain cases

Fixed: Visual and performance issues related to the toxic lakes 

Fixed: Bug that was crashing twitch integration system when invalid characters were used in OAuth field. 

Fixed: Certain sounds in the game were extremely loud compared to other in game sounds. 



Thank you guys a lot for all your feedback, positivity and support. It means a lot to us and we are working extremely hard to deliver the best possible experience while playing The Universim. Let us know how you feel about our improvements and if we nailed it. Your feedback means a lot to us and we take it seriously. 



Did you hear the news? Our friends at META Publishing is working with two awesome games: HordeCore and Time Loader!



HordeCore is a cool side-scrolling shooter, where you blast the hordes of angry Hordelings! Make your kick-ass team of survivors and join the fight!



Time Loader is a cozy puzzle-platformer with a cute robot and time travels! What a mix! If you like physics based puzzles, 80-90s atmosphere, and beautiful handcrafted locations — this is a game for you!


Conveniently, they BOTH have demos! Check 'em out.


Thank you everyone!

All the best,
