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,

Many things are happening around here lately. While working on the combat feature, which is almost done, we also closed the Alpha subscriptions and announced that we are preparing a Kickstarter campaign for Untold Universe!

We wrote an article about it on our Dev Blog, which explains why we are doing this. Feel free to read it and comment!

We will come back to these subjects in the future as the Kickstarter should be ready soon, but meanwhile, please let us introduce the first concept arts for the pioneer character!

The Untold Universe pioneer character design

What you can currently see in-game as the game character is a place holder destined to disappear, to be replaced with an animated customisable model.

Concept character in-game - 17/07/14

The difficulty here is to balance two important aspects in our opinion: a character detailed enough to be equipped with many tools and clothes useful to fulfil your chosen role, while keeping it simple enough so it does not looks weird in a world of cubes and slopes!

We also worked on conceptualizing the different looks that your character will adopt depending on what needs to be done: piloting, commanding, building, mining... Some of these assets will depend on your current equipment, while some will be pure vanity like hair styles.

Concept character in-game - 17/07/14

As you can see, the game will feature a male and a female character, and will be given the opportunity to differentiate itself from others.

So tell us, how do you find it?

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!

Yes, we are sending Alpha keys by batches, to test servers incrementally. We are trying to get everybody to play as fast as possible, so I hope you will receive your key soon!

We would be glad to see you by the forums, what was the problem when trying to sign up?
