Prosperous Universe prepares to release its new game world this Friday

    
8

It’s the end of the world as Prosperous Universe players know it, but they should feel fine, as out of the Big Bang of this update will rise an all new universe full of changes and features. It will also, presumably, be a universe of prosperity.

A dev blog provided a look at several updates being worked on ahead of the game’s full world reset this coming Friday, March 8th. These updates include tooltips that show the necessary times for production of materials, an updated drop down menu to help create multiple recipes in a single production order, and a new map for the game. There was also a fair bit made about improved material descriptions to more closely reflect the game’s “hard-ish sci-fi” aesthetic.

The devs also took a moment to put together a livestream showing off some of these features with the game’s community on Tuesday, February 19th. A video of that stream was uploaded earlier this week and can be seen below.

A new game world won’t help much if it has the same UI.

I find it hard to imagine the kind of audience for such a “game”.

It wouldn’t be so bad, but it is done in HTML so the interface is awkward and doesn’t always behave the way you think it should. That tips the scales against it. I can play a quirky numbers building game, but don’t make me fight the UI.

I was watching the tutorial and it felt like moving all the windows around was a throwback to Win 3.1. It looked kind of interesting and I’m all for wasting time – but this was too much. I can look at real graphs go up and down and know something valuable (?) at the end of the experience.

Just a heads up I think we may be missing an R from release in the title ;)

Yeah that is bugging the hell out of me for some reason. It’s sad the amount of things that get published without spot checking. Really hard to miss that one.
