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.

Hello Creators!

There are only 3 Days left to achieve our goal and possibly reach some of the stretch goals! Let’s make it happen! We have seen everyone increasing their pledges lately, and wow have you made our jaws drop, so today we would like to present you with some exciting new tiers that will give you a little something extra for your help! Keep in mind that if your pledge is already higher than these new tiers, you will automatically receive them as well!

Guard-Satellite Star Keeper

Introducing the latest orbital technology developed by Crytivo Industries, the Guard-Satellite Star Keeper! As you can tell by the name, it will protect your planet (when activated) from certain natural disasters such as asteroids or any other space junk that may be hurtling towards your planet. Be sure to keep it in range of the Epicenter! Oh, and one last thing! It is up to you to decide if you want to use it purely for protective measures, or to cook a few of your misbehaving citizens. We can already hear the sound of it - PZzhhhhzhzhppppsssss.

Observatory - Luna 1987

Another great technology available for backers at $45 is the Observatory - Luna 1987. With this high-tech building, which will become available right after you step into the Modern Age, you will be able to begin observing distant planets immediately for future preparation. Magic right? Well we here at Crytivo Industries don't believe in magic! With this technological beast, you will be able to discover all of the beauty of alien planets while sitting in a stylish, comfy chair back on Mother Planet.

Fully Loaded Discovery Rover

This monster of engineering is available to you from $65 upwards. The Fully Loaded Discovery Rover is an awesome addition to the recon catalogue. It will help you collect important information about the various planets you come across, without spending too much of your valuable time. It comes equipped with high capacity batteries that will allow you to drive it on alien planets for longer. We also installed thermal protection, so no pesky extreme conditions will get in the way of your exploration. And finally, GUNS. Two mini-cannons come pre-installed in front of the body to protect your vehicle against wild animal attacks and other dangers. Get it today! Half of the funding will be used to upgrade Cow Facilities in the Cowtivo Industries Department, or will simply be used to add more villainous, erm, innovative technology!

How can I get my hands on this stuff?

As we said earlier, if you are at a higher tier you will receive all lower tiers automatically-except for the standalone tiers such as: $35, $55 and $70. Everything else will be included in your rewards. For example: if you are at $30 and you want to get the Guard Satellite, you just simply add $5 to your pledge, $15 for the Satellite, Cowtivo Skyscraper, and Observatory, and so on. If you have any questions, please ask them in the comments below or send us a Private Message.

Looks wonderful!! Will there be any gameplay footage for this campaign? While impressive it also looks like manually-generated scenes without interactivity. I'm curious what abilities the user has, if there is real-time terrain deformation, etc.
