The Christmas update of The Universal introduces loads of new worlds to play on - including KILLING PUNY HUMANS - plus new prize round tournaments where you can win Amazon gift vouchers if you help us test the latest Alpha!

SPACE is BACK!
The space trading/combat game (Elite-style) is back, with a new cockpit, new ships, new space
drives and effects. We've also been working on a lot of back-end and graphics engine improvements as well as building a bunch of crazy new worlds for you to play on.

Here's a quick video tour of some of the latest stuff:


New worlds to play on!
There are many new worlds available in our Xmas 2014 update:

Demolition
Kill the puny humans in your giant tripod of death! LAUGH as the puny humans flee from your gigantic death machine. CACKLE as you race to rack up the most kills. GRIN evilly as you... well you get the idea. Can you play keepie-uppie with their squishy little bodies? Oh yes, you can...

Demolition - kill the puny humans!

Magicthumb
A strange social game about crafting and using potions - will you turn your opponent into an ostrich before he transforms you into a yukka? Also featuring: swimming! And... coracles?

Magicthumb - a strange world of potions and magic

Guntrac
Weld a plasma cannon to the top of a tractor and go to battle on this team combat world. Protect your base, and destroy the opposing team with rockets, seekers, cluster bombs and the dreaded tomahawk missile...

Guntrac - tractors with guns, naturally

And more...
The galaxy has Civ-style worlds, crazy economy worlds, desolate wastelands and player-run worlds in various stages of completion... see what you can find!
