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.

SMOOTH Patch v0.1.51 is Now Live!

Hello Creators,


Starting today, we will be releasing additional patch notes about our Space Age progress! While we are still hard at work on the overall game, we have moved the majority of our team’s focus to beyond the stars. 


Shortly following this patch, we will regularly be posting behind-the-scenes progress on the highly anticipated Space Age! For this particular patch, we worked heavily on exile expansion. We also added a new structure called ‘hyperlube’ that will be extremely valuable on other planets. Let us know how you like it :)


As always, if you have any feedback or suggestions, please join our Discord and let us know! We do our best to read each of your messages, so don’t be shy in letting us know your thoughts.


Now, let’s explore the content of this patch. 



Hyperlube 

Heading to space means that nuggets will require a new means of transportation. Drumroll...meet hyperlube! The hyperlube is a fast and reliable way for your nuggets to move from point A to point B. The hyperlube will allow your nuggets to travel through mountains and lakes with ease, however, it does require quite a bit of energy to operate. Nuggets will largely prioritize the hyperlube when they need to reach the point where the end of the hyperlube is located.















Barracks


We have been receiving consistent feedback from our community regarding the addition of conflict elements to The Universim. Previously, exiles were the ones responsible for causing trouble. Now, with this patch, we are introducing barracks to address these troublemakers. Train your military and stop aggressors from the outside. Your trained military will defend your nuggets from any kind of trouble and can also be utilized to eliminate threats from exile villages. What kind of neighbor would you be? 









Exile Temples



Nuggets can leave the city based on many different factors. Your nuggets might be unhappy or lose trust in you, their creator. Despite everything, each and every nugget needs something (or someone) to believe in. With this in mind, every exile will be protected by their own creator.


There are 5 creators who possess different powers: 


Thunder Emperor “Baal” has the ability to manipulate lightning and will obliterate their enemies with thunderstorms about their heads. 


Wind Emperor “Enlil” possesses the power to manipulate wind and create destructive tornadoes. 


Fire Emperor “Amaterasu” has honed their powers to rain fire down on unsuspecting nuggets. 


Death Emperor “Mot” oversees death itself. In raising the dead, he manipulates the souls of nuggets in order to wreak havoc upon the planet.


Nature Emperor “Abu” oversees living creatures. Abu uses the power of nature in order to awaken an ancient creature that lives underground.



Though these creators are not as powerful as you, they certainly can cause trouble while simultaneously protecting their loyal nuggets. Their powers can be used against you and your civilization in addition to other exile villages. If you are in a good relationship with an exiled group, the creator of that exile will be benevolent towards you and your civilization. If, however, you have caused some issues, you will become a foe rather than a friend. 


Each exile also has their own clothing and colors associated with their creator. Therefore, you will always know who is attacking you and who you should be aware of. 



Exile Dome


Once an exile is established, it will be encompassed by the temple-created protective dome. Destroying the temple will remove the protective dome. The dome can also be destroyed by using your Creator Powers - though this may not be as easy as it sounds. It will require a vast amount of Creator Powers to bring down the dome and destroy an exile’s protection. Sometimes, it is easier to send your troops to deal with the exile. 



Exile Attack

Utilize different military forces to attack an exile village if it poses a threat to you or your allies. Currently, there are two different in-game unit types: soldiers and bombers. Based on the Age, soldiers will use crossbows or military grade weapons. The bombers will carry the explosive to nearby exile structures and blow them up. You can start an attack via the barracks menu at any time.



Holy Ground

Bless the ground and indicate to your nuggets where they should build their next home. Using the Holy Ground Creator Power, you can indicate the area in which nuggets should build their residential houses. Once the area is fully built, nuggets will return to placing the buildings where they left off prior to the use of Holy Ground Creator Power. 



Improvements and Balance Changes


Powder Quest 

The format of the powder quest was quite unique in the sense that the quest was not fully finished when certain conditions were met and, in some cases, the quest was still active for multiple hours. This caused a lot of confusion. This quest was slightly reworked and adjusted to the same standard of other quests. In other words, when the task is completed, the quest is considered to be successfully finished. 


Icons to Indicate That the Mine Is Depleted

Previously, the conditions for the icon that indicates that the mine has a low amount of resources appeared too early and, therefore, caused a lot of confusion among players. All values were readjusted. A warning indicator will appear when the amount of resources underneath the mine is 100 or less. A critical warning will appear when the amount of resources underneath the mine is 50 or less. Previously, the amount was set to be at 500 and 350. 


Other Improvements:

  • Performance improvements
  • Planet loading time improvements (especially for other planet sizes) 


Bug Fixes

Fixed: Hunters attacked Cattle Farm animals.

Fixed: Power hour event was turning off buildings that didn’t require electricity, thus never turning them back on after the event. 

Fixed: Picking up animals with a vortex Creator Power from a cattle farm caused an error to happen.

Fixed: Nuggets working in the buildings will collect herbs themselves if the building is out of herbs and there are no available nuggets who can bring herbs. 

Fixed: While on expedition, nuggets were taking damage from different area-based damage Creator Powers (lighting strike, meteor strike, etc.) 

Fixed: Nuggets were getting infected from different sources while being on expedition.

Fixed: Stone Age expedition debris would turn into Modern Age debris if the Modern Age expedition camp research was upgraded before the rebuild option was selected.

Fixed: Missing localization from the starting advice section.

Fixed: Nuggets will now cancel their dating and mating AI’s if the partner is on an expedition.

Fixed: Wounded nuggets were not transferred correctly when the expedition camp was destroyed/upgraded during the expedition. 

Fixed: Using vortex to pick up the space box caused errors. 

Fixed: In the quests menu (menu where all the quests are being showcased), the animation was sometimes getting stuck and, therefore, it displayed the incorrect state of the quest. 

Fixed: Decorative trees were missing from the residential area.

Fixed: Previously, you could throw exiles and dead bodies into rehab/prison/police stations. 

Fixed: Missing disaster icons.

Fixed: Firefighters getting stuck in non-firefighter's hut buildings.

Fixed: Farm windmills pointing in random directions.

Fixed: Multiple hospital doctors would target the same patient, slowing down healing and causing double herb consumption.

Fixed: An issue with nuggets having crazy rotations if pausing on one side of the planet and moving over to the other side while still paused.

Fixed: Meteors were clipping through the ground in some situations. 

Fixed: Resource statistics panel had an issue where, in some cases, it didn’t correctly indicate the amount of trees and stones that were collected.

Fixed: Tornado dirt on screen issue. 

Fixed: Instances of the Black Market not being built. 

Fixed: Quest-giver nuggets could have become exiled. 

Fixed: Healing exile nugget construction sites would create an error.
