The Universim

released on Aug 28, 2018

The Universim aims to revive the glory days of the god-game genre and bring it into the next generation with fresh ideas and ambitious gameplay. With the powers of a god, you are unleashed upon the universe to begin forging your galactic empire in the stars. From dust to the cosmos beyond, your civilization will rise through the ages under your guidance. Yet this is not the same static world you may be accustomed to, this is a dynamic, living world that is just as unpredictable as it is beautiful. Everything in The Universim revolves around dynamic gameplay, including the civilization AI. You may have unparalleled power, but you cannot control the AI directly as you would in a typical strategy game. The AI will make its own decisions and always seek to better the civilization in some way, but at times their decisions may end badly without your intervention.

Being a god is... boring as hell, right?

I think the worst part of this is the research. There's no way to increase the speed, making everything dull and slow. The lack of challenge and the crazy UFO black market thing made me sad as well.

A game that's the definition of "meh"

Enjoyed the aesthetic but honestly it was just boring overall. Not much seems to happen at least in the time I played. If your into sandboxes where you make your own fun you might have a better time with it than I did.

Cutesy, aggrivating narration. Still in EA since 2018. Visually difficult to use, tiny UI, even with it maximally enlarged, tiny people and places. An annoying experience.

It's an alright game. There's not much to be excited about but it's a good game to play in the background.

For a god game this is severely lacking as it mostly is a city sim. I've no desire to come back as playing the game didn't feel in rewarding and the comical narration can't rescue really dull gameplay features.
