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.
We’re back with a delicious assortment of new features! We have had a super productive month here at Crytivo, which may or may not involve that amazing procedural alien planet generation system we keep mentioning ;). It’s going to be glorious! If you’ve been enjoying the game so far, be sure to drop us a review on Steam to let us know your thoughts. We love reading what you have to say! Thanks for sticking with us on this crazy ride.
Shiny new content:
We’ve hit maximum velocity in the Modern (Industrial) Age! Mmmm, don’t you just love the smell of freshly-brewed plastic in the morning? Modern buildings deserve modern scaffolding, and that’s exactly what we have for you today. Motivated by your feedback, our devs have gone above and beyond and made it look oh-so-beautiful!
That rumbling is far too loud to be your stomach! Only a collapsing skyscraper could cause the planet to tremble so spectacularly, thanks to some potent new visual effects. If you really want to destroy the civilization you’ve worked so hard to create, it might as well look and feel awesome. Enjoy!
Ah, the sweet smell of gasoline. Did you know that it causes inexplicably rapid armpit hair growth in Nuggets? It’s like they suddenly developed two extra furry arms. Beyond that, Fuel can be burned to create energy and further pollute the environment. You can’t have everything.
Get the crash cart! There are lives that need to be saved! Brand new defibrillators, catheters, ethical practices, and curvy needles have been added to the Modern Hospital. Less death all around!
It’s starting to look good enough to drink! Store more water than ever and never worry about evaporation again.
It’s cheap, it’s versatile, and nature absolutely despises it. Say hello to plastic! While it may cause issues later, think about all the awesome stuff you can make with it until then.
The Clone Center is here (AKA, the Nugget customizer)! This will be the tallest building on the planet. We have shortened it for this initial release so it doesn’t look out of place with everything else, but you’ll be able to upgrade it well into the sky. You can customize and order new Nuggets that will be delivered to you in a capsule with a little ribbon. It’s super classy and only a little creepy.
To spice things up, we added Legendary Traits to all of the Nuggets you genetically engineer. They will be like little heroes running around with hidden (or quite obvious) superpowers. Every Legendary Trait comes with a few bad habits and negative traits. Take the Undying, for example, who will never grow old. However, they sleep for years at a time and can spread diseases far more quickly than other Nuggets when they contract one.
It’s bigger and more organized than ever! Storage has gotten a lot smarter. Now, if only Nuggets could do the same.
We’re mega proud of this change. After hearing what you all had to say, we revisited the Building List Panel and upped the epicness to 5000. Using this new panel, you can now easily assign Nuggets to buildings, turn shifts on/off, sort buildings by type, view each building’s effect on Happiness/crime and pollution, and (by popular demand) manage things more easily with two upgrade buttons that allow you to either upgrade a single building or every building of similar type. Keep letting us know how we can improve things! Your opinion and suggestions matter!
With names like Dolce Nuggana, Louis Nuiggon, Nuggani, Nuggberry, and Ralph Naugren, Nugget fashion is on the rise. More creative and colorful brands are taking over from older trends. Giiiirl, you’re going to look fabulous!
Have you been keeping track of how many factories we’re adding lately? It’s a little nuts. However, they are crucial for the future of your civilization. They produce advanced materials that will be used for constructing buildings and technology like Airports and Rocket Launchpads, which naturally includes tech like rockets, drones, rovers, and satellites. Polish your helmets, everyone, we’re blasting off soon!
Are you excited about the new patch? A lot of hard work is being done each and every day by our amazing devs. We want to give a shout out to everyone for their loyalty, creativity, and drive, which includes the awesome testers and translators who offer so much help. And, of course, we want to thank the entire community for being so supportive and wonderful. You always rock! If you love what we’re doing or have some thoughts on the game, please drop us your honest review on Steam.
