Pitchfork Patch brings optimisations for The Universim on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Thanks to the continuing development Crytivo. Plus the developer is also encouraging more reviews. The games available via Humble Store, Steam and GOG.
Since it’s been while. The developers have been slaving away on Pitchfork Patch stuff. They would also like you give your thoughts. So you can give The Universim a review, ideally on Steam. Since this is where people typically go for Reviews.
What’s impressive, the overall score still remains positive. While giving the developers more freedom to make content progress easier. Given the success of the game on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. It’s a pleasure to see the Crytivo putting in a valiant effort since release.
Cryptivo is also preparing for the Space Era. Completely reworking the planet generation algorithms. While cutting down the loading times by a whopping 90%. This should make transition times between planets only taking seconds. So performance definitely sees a welcomed improvement. Making planets slightly bigger. With 2-3 times more objects on each planet.
Pitchfork Patch brings the following:
Nuggets will no longer endure great hardships in silence. Especially if it has something to do with your management skills. If global Happiness drops too low. Thanks to the Pitchfork Patch, you’re certainly going to hear about it. If crime shoots up, you’d better be ready to see some riots. There may be fires and some damage to local businesses. Riots can be stopped by either allowing them to run their course. Also arresting rioters, or, quite literally, squashing the uprising with a few powers. Exile Orators can now rile up your citizens. Since they dramatically decrease their Happiness. And also make them a bigger threat.
- TEMPLE 2.0
Temples now work a bit differently thanks to the Pitchfork Patch. Every Temple (beginning in the Stone Age) comes equipped with an unsentimental grinder. So if you ever find yourself lacking sufficient Creator Points. Maybe while facing a Tornado or Meteor Shower hurtling towards your civilization. Take out those worries, along with your least-favorite Nugget. It not only generates a chunk of Creator Points. This can also help feed your other citizens.
The reviews have been excellent so far. Everyone who benefits from it has given it a 5-star rating. And there hasn’t been any complaints from those who were sacrificed.
- Twitch Integration
One of the most request features. Being able to share gameplay moments with others and engage viewers. The Universim now has some awesome Twitch Integration support features. Thanks to the Pitchfork Patch this allows viewers to spawn their own Nuggets. Simply by typing #CreateNugget in the chat panel.
