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.

XYBSLGA21 Patch v0.1.48 is Now Live!

Hello Creators,


Our new patch is here. Since our last one we've made huge strides in development. Some of it you will be able to see now, some are getting polished and will be ready in the next patch, and others we will tell you about in the future.


With this patch we expanded our tutorial system, performance, and building upgrades. We are also adding some additional life improvement features that hopefully will make everyone’s experience more pleasant. A lot of those systems in this patch were requested by you on our discord, steam, and social media. We are extremely grateful to have such a great community and we’ll keep working with you in order to create the best possible experience for everyone. 


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. 



Expedition Quest

Nuggets have always been curious about the world around and above them, but it is time for them to finally meet the thing that lies below. This quest is a part of a major mechanic that will be expanded on in the next patch. Prepare to dive deep underground and help your nuggets during their journey. 



Shortcut System

Who doesn’t like taking a shortcut from time to time? By toggling on the shortcut menu with “x” the player can turn on a labeling system that will show them how to select menus and buildings with just a few keystrokes. For example pressing B-1-1 will bring up an engineer hut ready to be placed. 



Tutorials ( Part 2 )

We are continuing to expand our tutorial system. For the second part of this expansion, we added additional 6 different tutorials that will explain mechanics in the game such as: 

  • Reservoirs and how they operate
  • Engineer Huts explanation
  • Explanation for the radius around certain buildings and how they influence the gameplay
  • Where to find the expanded building functionality
  • How to assign nuggets to buildings
  • How to get additional herbs to the hospital and why your hospitals might have an issue
  • Infection and how to fight it 


We plan to continue expanding this system. If you have something that you don’t understand or find confusing, drop us a message on our discord. We’ll be sure to review it and potentially add a tutorial for it. 



Ministers Revamp

As we proceeded with adding new systems to the game, we saw that Ministers needed more and more love. For this patch, we decided to take our time and redesign how their algorithms worked. Initially all the ministers were “fixers” of issues but that wasn't enough. Now ministers do their best to prevent issues from appearing in the first place. We reworked almost every algorithm for the Ministers system and we’re eager to hear what you think.


Modern Movie Theater

We were starting to think that modern nuggets might be getting bored with the “talkies” that were being shown in the old theaters. So now they will be able to snack on their popcorn in fancy new theaters.



Planet Seed

Have you ever found the perfect planet to later wish you could start over? Planet Seed functionality will allow you to type the specific seed of the planet in the main menu and load that exact planet on which you played previously. 



Improvements and balance changes


Full Screen Mode 

Full screen mode support was added to the game, which should provide better stability and experience for some of our players.


Change in the saving system ( Archives Removal ) 

For quite some time we debated about our unique save system. Some people loved it, some people hated it. Based on our analytics and research, we had to take a step back and remove the archive dependent safe system. Now you can save the game at any time through the ESC menu and set up autosave frequency in the game menu settings. 


Save Files Management

Since we started to rework our save system, we also added additional functionality to it. Now you can select all or multiple save files to delete. No more one by one deletion of save files.



Building Within a range Indicators

Engineers and Firefighters are important buildings for keeping your city afloat. Placing a building outside the range of Engineers Hut or Firefighters Hut will display an icon above the building you are trying to place indicating that engineers and firefighters won’t be able to reach it. 



Concrete City

One of the main distinctive parts of the big cities is the amount of concrete in them. We added roads, we added tall modern buildings, but the city was still missing that little piece that sets it apart from other ages. So now you can have a true “concrete jungle.”


 

Educated Nugget displayed in the filter system

Educated nuggets now can be found in the filter system and you can see how many nuggets in your civilization have an education. 



Performance

We keep working on our performance with every patch. For this patch we improved the resource distribution algorithms and their interactions with other systems, which should provide an additional 5%-10% of the performance improvement. 


Extinct Animals Icon

A status Icon was added to the Hunters Hut that will appear when an animal is extinct and your hunters are no longer able to hunt it. 


Construction Panel for the buildings that were automatically built 

Previously, any building that was constructed automatically ( Black Market, Temple etc ), didn’t have a panel that would indicate the progress of their construction. Now you can see how long it will take to behold it in it’s glorious final form.


Bug Fixes:

Fixed: Main Menu planet had a wrong season 

Fixed: Issue when certain seeds of the planet will keep repeating despite starting a new game

Fixed: Interaction with trees in certain cases produced an error, which was breaking save files

Fixed: Incorrect tree textures on birch trees

Fixed: In certain cases roads were able to stop the bridge placement 

Fixed: Bridge constructions sites now have a hover outline

Fixed: Bridge and roads were not reconnecting when the road position was updated

Fixed: Damage dealt to the nugget health was not calculated properly 

Fixed: Lens Flare effects were bleeding through the planet

Fixed: Nuggets names were not updated in the residential tooltips

Fixed: Visual bug that was appearing when you try to enter the escape menu during a tutorial transition

Fixed: Search in the nugget list panel was not working correctly

Fixed: Building Status Icons were sometimes blinking 

Fixed: Saving the game while load screen was opened, caused a broken save file 

Fixed: Ecology panel sometimes caused an error that lead to a corrupt save file

Fixed: Tornado creator power had a chance to spawn multiple Tornado’s if the creator power was used in quick succession.

Fixed: Evolution tower could have been placed while being in the ESC menu 

Fixed: Localization in the garage display panel

Fixed: Using the vortex creator power above the eatery to get cooked food and after that dropping them on the ground, caused an error that was breaking the game

Fixed: Picking up a space box with a vortex and then dropping it while pressing Press F to fly to, caused the space box to get stuck 

Fixed: Using Vortex about the factory caused nuggets to get picked up as well

Fixed: Using Vortex above the lake calculated the usage of creator points incorrectly

Fixed: Picking up fruits from one bush sometimes caused other bushes to react as if the fruit was picked up from them as well

Fixed: Telekinesis system was not cleared correctly after it was canceled and code kept the reference from the previous object causing “Unable to pick up” effect. 

Fixed: Extreme jittering in certain cases when the Vortex creator power was used

Fixed: Bug that caused tooltips to stay open on the screen

Fixed: Cupidon Rainbow effect was getting stuck on the screen

Fixed: Bug where nuggets would get trapped in the bunker 

Fixed: Battery parts from the quest were not saved to the save file properly, causing the failure of the quest 

Fixed: Bug that prevented the Ministers of Water from placing pumps in the Stone Age

Fixed: Bug that prevented the Minister of Agriculture from properly placing food production buildings


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. If you would like to see something to be added to the game, please make sure to join our discord channel and drop your suggestions there. We are always checking it.
