In a universe of nothing, you must rebuild. Create a big bang and shape the universe to your will in this space simulator. The game is randomly generated, with a different universe structure every time you play. Learn about the many alien races you have created, planet types, find various secrets, and 9 possible Game Over endings.

  • How to Play: This game is very sandbox driven. Click "Bang!" to start the game and watch the universe be created. Explore planets, learn the story behind the alien races, and decide whether to help or destroy them. Align yourself with Benevolence (Good) or Malevolence (Evil). Find the secrets of the universe. Abandon all hope and start anew. The outcome is in your hands.
  • Controls:
    WASD Movement: W up, S down, D right, A left
    Left Mouse button for Action
    Right Mouse button (drag) to Look around

  • Quitting: There was no time to create a Quit button for this build, you will need close the game through Task Manager or force close the game from your task bar. The quit button will be added after Ludum Dare 45 judging.
