The Universal... is an online game for PC. Explore the galaxy, play on planets or make your own world with your own game design. Various game types are available - including uniquely complex social economies - and you can play it all for free. If you're the creative type you'll find extensive in-game tools and a powerful scripting engine to let you create new game ideas. Or you can just mess around and blow each other into ostriches. It's all cool, whatever.
The Christmas update of The Universal introduces loads of new worlds to play on - including KILLING PUNY HUMANS - plus new prize round tournaments where you can win Amazon gift vouchers if you help us test the latest Alpha!

Thanks, lurker. It's just a game but.. ya know.. appreciated :)
Still lurking, still following, still worth it.
You will always have my vote, keep up the great work!

This looks like a really great game but it's a shame it will take so long to create...
Would love to get it done sooner, but ya know.. work, kids, life.. Submarines, though.. alarming indeed, good point! Noted! :)
