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.

Creator Powers give players the ability to influence their surroundings and have a great time manipulating the game’s physics and simulation aspects. Think of it is as one, big physics-based sandbox. You can grab objects and throw them around, influence your people with special commands, and even trigger horrible disasters. Remember, everything below represents powers and values that are still in testing. They will very likely change, especially once we get some of your feedback.

WHAT IS IT?


Creator Powers give players the ability to influence their surroundings and have a great time manipulating the game’s physics and simulation aspects. Think of it is as one, big physics-based sandbox. You can grab objects and throw them around, influence your people with special commands, and even trigger horrible disasters. Remember, everything below represents powers and values that are still in testing. They will very likely change, especially once we get some of your feedback.

CREATOR POINTS (CP)


CP acts somewhat like sand in an hourglass. You accumulate CP at a certain rate and each Creator Power costs a varying amount of these points. 3600 Points is the maximum that you can collect at any given time. The CP cost for casting a power depends on the scale of the action it performs. For example, if you want to pull a tree or rock from the ground and throw it, it will only cost a few points. However, should you wish to cast a more awe-inspiring power, such as a natural disaster, it will cost a huge number of points, if not all of them.

TYPES OF CREATOR POWERS

INTERVENTION


Basic Object Interaction.
Cost: 60 CP
This is the bread and butter of any god. Who doesn’t enjoy throwing stones, trees, or people around? The harder you fling an object, the more damage it will do toanything it hits.

Inspiration. Cost: 600 CP (10 minutes)
A rousing speech can only be so effective, which is why your unquestionable sway over lesser-minded creatures is so important. Casting this on a crowd of Nuggets will make them work faster, increase their Might, and refill their stamina bars. It’s like an energy drink from the gods.


Construction & Repair Focus Cost: 600 CP (10 minutes)
Nuggets aren’t really programmed to do exactly as you wish, especially when it comes to construction, which is why you need a way in which to communicate your orders without drawing too much suspicion. Casting the Focus power on a building will make it shine brightly and drawConstruction Nuggets to the scene to either repair or construct the building. They won’t suspect a thing.



Inconceivable. Cost: 600 CP (10 minutes)
Ever wondered how you lose 100 or so kilograms of useless fat? Cut him out of the relationship. This power will make a female Nugget pregnant without the help of a male.

Immortality. Cost: 2400 CP (40 minutes)
Some say immortality is a curse. We say that our favorite Nuggets don’t have much of a choice in the matter. This power will ensure a desired Nugget never feels the touch of time. They can, however, still feel the teeth of a wild animal or the effects of starvation, so try to keep them safe.

TERRAFORMING

Plant 10 Trees Cost: 2400 CP (40 minutes)
Cutting down trees a little too quickly? Is the air getting a little too hard to breathe? Well, slap a few trees down and call it a day.

Plant 1 Tree Cost: 420 CP (7 minutes)
For every 420 Creator Points spent, we will plant a tree to help save the planet.

Drop 10 Stones Cost: 2400 CP (40 minutes)
Planting trees is one thing, but you don’t really plant rocks without good reason. It’s far more fun to drop them.

Drop 1 Stone Cost: 420 CP (7 minutes)
This power is interesting in that one can actually throw the rock with varying force, damaging or destroying anything in its path. You can also just drop it, but that doesn’t sound nearly as fun.

Cloud Formation Cost: 840 CP (14 minutes)
Want a quick shower? Try forming rain clouds that react to the environment around them. Better watch where the wind is blowing or your plans to put out a fire may go in a completely different direction.

Thermostat Cost: 3600 CP (60 minutes)
Everyone has fooled around with the thermostat at least once in their lives. Now you can do so on a planetary scale. Using this power will allow you to increase or decrease the temperature of the planet by 10 degrees celsius for 1 hour. It can be cast multiple times. Be careful, many plants and living creatures don’t react kindly to rapid climate change.

DISASTERS
Yes, I do want to set the world on fire.

Lightning Strike Cost: 420 CP (7 minutes)
Pretend you’re Zeus by unleashing the power of lightning upon the world. Lightning strikes deal damage to both buildings and creatures. They can also cause fires to start spreading, which react with wind direction and speed.

Earthquake Cost: 3600 CP (60 minutes)
Earthquakes are fun to watch, mainly due to their destructive nature, but they can also assist your civilization. Earthquakes open up new resource deposits for your people to mine, and include resources such as oil, wood, stone, and so on. However, the location of an earthquake is always random, so be mindful of the dangers.

Volcano Cost: 3600 CP (60 minutes)
You raise me up, so I can spew out lava. That’s how the song goes, right? Using this power will create a volcano that increases the temperature in its radius of effect and destroys anything within its critical zone. It lasts for 120 minutes, so don’t expect this to be a simple trip to the disaster drive-through.

Tornado Cost: 3600 CP (60 minutes)
An uncontrollable, spinning force of nature that sucks up anything in its path and spews it across the countryside. You can choose where it begins, but it decides where to end.

Meteor Strike Cost: 1200 CP (20 minutes)
There’s something about bombarding the surface of a planet with giant space rocks that’s so very satisfying. However, these are no mere space rocks. Every meteor strike will include what we call a Pandora’s Box. These boxes can either include helpful gifts, such as a new Research Item or a collection of resources, or deadly surprises, such as a bomb or a contagious virus.

Happy Holidays!

I'd honestly leave out the requirement of points to use your divine powers altogether :/ The meaning of a god game to me is playing as a higher being with unlimited power and one or more civilizations at its whim, fully capable of making or destroying the future of thousands of souls. Having to wait with erasing a city from the face of the earth by sending a tornado at it because you just planted 1 tree 6 minutes ago kind of spoils the idea of being a powerful god. If you must implement something like this, I'd recommend having it based on the amount of worshippers you have, how many people are praying to your name or on the making of human sacrifices, so there is some material basis to it and it doesn't get too 'gamey'.

In any case, best of luck! It looks like a promising game in a loved but empty genre!

Well, hopefully they'll add an option for infinite god points.
