The Universal is a configurable game-universe - explore worlds or make your own (with lots of rich, customisable gameplay and styles) - all loosely connected by a galaxy of space exploration and trade.  

Sunset on lake

You can choose to start the game as a simple caveman - first figuring out how to make fire - or progress out to space and through a galaxy containing elite-style trading and combat. You can play on a world of magic, potions and the opportunity to pluck an ostrich. You can build up a business empire and corner the market for oil. There are other players' worlds to visit and explore, each with their own unique gameplay, graphics, styles and challenges. You can create your own planet and explore the in-game world editor that allows you to make vehicle setups, modify your environment, change game-play rules, etc etc. 

Support the game's development by joining the membership scheme and you'll have full access to the world server, including modelling tools and a comprehensive scripting engine.

The Universal is free to download and free to play now - with the aim being to call it beta sometime in 2014. Or 2016.

Login with the new version, click 'Create World' and a persistent world server is created for you.  Once connected, F10 takes you to the world editor where you can tweak vehicle settings, define game rules, move trees about, paint your landscape, etc etc.

A video demonstrating the new system can be found in the video section.
Also in this release are a number of additions and improvements to the in-game 'World Editor', including 'live' texture swaps and improved settings screens, as well as the usual array of new scripting tools and content. A few bug-fixes and price tweaks are included for space.

You can download the latest version free from indieDB or the game's website at Theuniversal.net
