Untold Universe is a space voxel sandbox MMORPG about colonizing and shaping a huge and uncharted universe.

The idea

Untold Universe intends to add over the cube-based voxel game concepts a social component thanks to the MMO part, and a strong gameplay giving players a goal and a role to play in the global colonization effort of the universe.

When connecting to the game the first time, you will be a pioneer freshly arrived from the known universe. You will discover the Border, a part of the universe that does not obey the same rules as ours, and is still to discover and tame. Equipped with only your ambition and the Valhalla Digital pioneer starter pack, you will have a chance to start back your life, and become one of the most reputed industrial, commander, pilot, pirate, or anything that could make you rich, powerful and respected by your peers!

Features

This are the global features we are targeting:

  • Massively Multiplayer Sandbox: Play with people from all around the world, team up to be stronger and shape entire worlds all together!
  • Explore an Infinite Universe: Land on planets of different types, then explore and exploit them! New ones will be added as more players enter the universe.
  • Build and Trade your Designs: Gather ressources and use them to build anything from factories to spaceships then sell or use them to your own benefit!
  • Choose your role: The game will not limit you to a particular skill. Want to be good at something? Just do it!
  • Jobs system: Colonizing worlds alone can be long and hard. Those who want to make quick cash and meet new people to work with will be able to take jobs generated by other players corporations. Defend assets, find a place to mine, build infrastructures, many jobs will be available to improve in your favorite field!

Current progress and futur

Currently, Untold Universe is in private Alpha. The game still is in a very early build, and does not contain many features.

But we are progressing fast, making new versions and adding new features on a regular basis. Along with new updates comes batches of Alpha keys, allowing more and more players to enter, test and help us build the game! We, indeed, are very interested in our players feedback and opinions, and are trying to adapt our development to these. Also, to be sure that we are building a game that the players will love, we are submitting the next feature choice to a players vote!

The game should enter a private Beta stage after summer, when more features will be implemented and the servers will be more stable.

Only major news will be posted on IndieDB. For minor announcements and discussions, please check out our official Dev Blog and our Forums. Thanks!

Hello everybody,

We recently released a new update of the game, adding the long awaited Ice planets, along with a lot of fixes and small improvements. The builds downloadable on IndieDB have been updated accordingly!

Ice planets

Telluric iced planet is the third biome of Untold Universe. These planets, distant from their stars, are cold and hostile but can eventually feature a very rich underground.

New biome: ice planets

Ice planets are generated using a brand new algorithm, that should make the surface and caverns more interesting and varied.

Other additions

Many small fixes and improvements are coming with this release. Amongst them are the first two effects that can be applied to your character: Oxygen shortage and Frostbite. The first will be applied underwater, and the second while being in the water in a cold environment. Both will kill you if applied for too long!

As requested by many players, we also increased the player movement speed and added a sprint button (left shift), that will make you run but will prevent you from firing or building. On the contrary, movement speed have been decreased when underwater.

For a full list of changes, head to our website's Forums.

See you soon!

This seems to be doing very very well. All this game needs is a massive community backing it up. Not saying this is in any way a Minecraft clone, but it should get the attention of people interested in the genre. I think this game is going places. No... I KNOW this game is going places. Great places. Thanks for being awesome. :)

Awesome! But this game needs more advertising, trying to reach a 200.000 goal with so few people knowing that this game exists is unlikely to succeed. I've just discovered it and there are only 5 days left in kickstarter, in addition you only have 200 watchers in moddb... You should have thousands. If you have an alpha build and key giveaways you could try to contact famous youtubers that play this kind of games, and give them a key, that would be a nice way to advertise the game and get more people to know it. Wait some time, and then start a new kickstarter campaign, taking into account the players/users suggestions after having played the alpha build. If you released a public alpha before the kickstarter campaign that would be even better. If you do this, you'll have a chance in kickstarter. Good luck :)

Again, thank you!

As much as I am interested in No mans sky. Games like this Space Engineers and Star Made are more world building ship building along with survival in some cases than just outright exploring. For me Flagship will probably trump No Mans Sky.

just another damn game to look forward too! Yep my life will be busy forever. Angled blocks like Space Engineers helped sell this game. Planets sealed the deal.

If you made an Alpha request on our website (www.untold-universe.com) we will try to send you out an Alpha key as soon as possible. Still, we currently receive a lot more subscription than we can send out keys, so I am really sorry to say it could take some time! We will soon discuss it further in a news.
Anyway thanks a lot for your interest!
