Leave the farms and cities behind, jump straight into managing your own planets in The Universim, a brand new god-game in development by Crytivo Games and Alexander Koshelkov.The Universim is first and foremost a planet management game.

The game begins in the stone age, thousands of years before the modern era. Research plays a crucial role in the game. Players will initially need to reinvent fire in order to survive attacks from wild animals or create cures for deadly viruses and other ailments. We’re developing planets that will have air, weather effects and varying temperatures and natural resources along with deadly natural disasters such as earthquakes, tornadoes, freak storms and meteors. In The Universim you play as a god, you will not interact directly with the population that inhabits your planet, however you will be able to help them. You will have the power to stop wars between cities on your planet or you can ignore them and allow one city to destroy the other.

You can reach and pass the modern era, upon which time you can build spaceships and this allows players to start exploring the universe in order to discover new planets with completely different environments, living conditions and gameplay possibilities. The choice we will extend towards gamers is: Will you spend time on research that will assist in the discovery of new planets and achieve early understanding of its alien environment, or you will send your team in unprepared? There are many conditions that will affect your research team and the outcome of a mission, such as the temperatures on new planets being far higher than the temperature on your home planet which can result in your entire crew burning alive. Another case can be that there is no oxygen on the planet and you send your crew in without proper breathing apparatus or atmosphere generators.

At Crytivo Games we strive to develop a unique game without limitations, we do not want to limit the experience for any gamer when managing their planets, no matter their play-style.There are many elements that are still to be implemented in The Universim. With your help we can develop and add an awesome multiplayer mode, where you connect with your friends in co-op environments or in a competitive versus mode. In multiplayer, you will be able to send your friends natural resources such as gas, oil, water, air or even deadly viruses hidden within Cargo Spaceship Containers wrapped as a gift. If you believe that you have the nuclear strength to erase your friends from the face of a planet, go ahead and launch those missiles and watch your friend sweat as death rains down upon them.

GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS?


It’s Demo Release Day! YAY! The last “demo” we released on steam was a very long time ago. In reality, it was a tech demo, which means there wasn’t much to do beyond flying around the world listening to the planet tell you a story. Add in a few neon lights and that would’ve been quite the trip!

Today we’re happy to announce that we’re updating the Steam Demo with an entirely new one, which actually lets you experience what the game’s really about. It’s important to keep in mind that the demo is always going to be a few versions behind the latest release, so certain bits of functionality or bugs fixes will be missing. We’ve been receiving a lot of questions pertaining to whether or not someone’s PC can run The Universim. Now you can test it for yourself and get some peace of mind before you join our awesome family.

Our vision is clear: we would not encourage anyone looking for the best possible experience to purchase The Universim at this stage, due to it still being a work in progress. We understand that Early Access is not everyone's cup of tea, and we respect and appreciate that. We are incredibly fortunate to have our amazing community that continues to test and improve the game alongside us every day.

As you can tell, we’re also very passive with our marketing approach. We’re not investing anything into major game promotion campaigns just yet. At this stage, we’d rather put our efforts entirely into the development of the game instead of constantly trying to bring in more purchases for a quick fix. We hope the frequent patches with a great spread of new features and bug fixes proves that for you. We’re also holding back on contacting press at this time. If you're wondering why nobody talks about The Universim on gaming sites, now you know!

The new demo is available for download via Steam RIGHT NOW. It will be available through other digital distribution platforms later on. Let us know where you would like us to upload it.

Remember, we won’t be directly supporting the demo version with patches. Certain issues were resolved in newer updates, which is why we are avoiding the whole demo patching process, but none of them should be game breaking.

Please go ahead and share the news with your friends and family. As always, we encourage you to leave us your feedback on our Forums or join the live discussion on our Discord channel.

Also, don’t forget to follow The Universim and Crytivo on Twitter and Facebook. We publish updates pretty often there and would love to hear your opinion before we officially announce or present them on our website.

Oh, and before we forget. If, by any chance, you find yourself in Germany (Cologne) next month, be sure to stop by our stall at Gamescom for some great swag and a meet and greet with the team!

Thank you all for amazing love and support!
Crytivo loves you, too!

im not sure if you will ever read comments on here, but what happened to the no direct interaction aspect?? i REAAAALLLY wanted a game like that so much. i even planned on letting it run on a big wall mounted screen on the wall of our livingroom and watch them slowly grow as a civilisation, letting the game run and making decissions about in which direction they will develop. watching them making their own decissions based on my godly input here and there.

Is this still a thing as it was when we backed the game??
Because that is what made this game so different and why i backed it with a lot of my saved money. i thought we manage the planet/universe and watch our different civilisations grow and make contact with other people on their own planet or later other planets.

Hi, you pretty much can let them grow by themselves, but they will need your help with evolution. Placing key buildings to help them survive and etc. You can join us in Discord and share your feedback with the community. We work very close with our fans and want make sure we're making the game they will love to play. Your opinion is extremely important for us and we would like to hear more.

Thank you,
Alex
