A postmodern god game where your minions go searching for a supreme being

There are god games and then there are god games. The Universim, which had its coming out party on Kickstarter the other day, isn’t content with laying down the law for a whistle stop of yokels. Even simulating the growth of a planet from human-less animal kingdoms to modern civilizations with airplanes and nuclear power is too small a bite for Alex Koshelkov and Crytivo Games. As is suggested in the video and also the title, this subjects in this sim eventually take to the cosmos to hunt down their creator, which is either you, the player, or the game’s designer, but either way it’s really weird. 5 dollars says they got this idea from the Cookie Clicker dude’s random game idea generator
