God Simulator The Universim Announces 1.0 Release

After 10 long years in early access, the ambitious planet management simulator game The Universim is finally nearing its complete 1.0 release. Indie developer Crytivo has announced that the full version will launch on January 22, 2024.

The Universim first hit Steam Early Access back in 2014 after a successful $397K Kickstarter campaign. The god simulator allows players to guide a fledgling civilization of Nuggets from the Stone Age up into space colonization and beyond. Now, a decade later, fans will get to experience the project’s true vision.

As you progress, you can colonize an unlimited number of resource-rich planets to expand your budding galactic empire across the stars.

The update also brings a complete storyline with enhanced narration and context to add depth to the experience. Your cerebral cortex-endowed Nuggets can finally blast off into their Space Age, unlocking additional technologies for you to discover as the all-seeing manager of their cute little lives.
