Currently, there is an ongoing process of development of the alpha version of the game, tis dedicated to the manned expedition to Mars.

Emergency events, non-standard tasks

Damage and wear system

Repair mechanics in residential module

Dialog voiceover 

Basic mini-games

Final selection of elements of landscape generator

Final completion of 3D models

Landing simulation of descend complex, interior of the return module

Optimization and alpha release

Simultaneously with the development of the computer game
we are launching a tabletop version.
It is possible to try yourself in a role
of head of a space program.
Current version name is “First starts”.

The game is orientated for 3-4 simultaneous participants, tis logically correlated with the first episode scenario of the computer version (Mars expedition –  is the 4th episode).

It will be available as a reward for sponsors on the Boomstarter platform.

 

Two videos demonstrate fragments of story inserts, gameplay and simulation elements, functionality of the in-game library.

Other videos are available on the Studio channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxZ5XGkXhCSAkPefotV7ueA

The idea of the project “Real Universe” appeared after the comprehension of the actual problems of our time:

1. Younger generations are passionate about games, for the most part, without any actual benefit for themselves.
2. In modern Russian society there is no image of a hero-the conqueror of the Universe.
3. “Astronomy” has been returned to school program, but the usual formats of studying do not work at all.
4. There is no stimulus to break away from computer games and learn something new about the real world.

THE PHENOMENON OF COMPUTER GAMES in one hand is encased as an instrument of literature displacement, cinema and TV, but on the other hand: they shape a worldview.
Many games about space – are about war, profit, tis a distorted, but an attractive world in which the motivation is a management of instincts.
There are games with the right content. But in them the player mainly learns about projects of NASA, ESA, and other projects

“Real Universe” – computer game with educational content and focus on domestic space projects, without military conflicts which can in order become a national system of new way of thinking and career guidance.

One step closer to the Beautiful Beyond.

Within the game you will find history of  the “CROWN” space Agency from our days and on to the XXIII century.

The time interval of the stages is preliminary, but most likely it will remain the same.

 

In the alpha version, there will be 3 mandatory quests awaiting for players and more than a dozen of additional tasks. Completion of all quests will provide hero with detailed knowledge of planetary science of Mars. Tis obvious that before the hero had been send on an expedition, he already knew a lot.

But the circumstances of history dictate that tis necessary to verify all known facts about the fourth planet… To decide if a man must set his foot on surface of Mars… or should all responsibility be entrusted to machines.

In the development of educational content, we focus mainly on manual, published in Irkutsk by a team of specialists led by astronomer Sergei Yazev.

In the development of devices for missions (including descriptions of their technical parameters, we focus on modern data of Russian space developments). We come up with new technical solutions and implement them in game in collaboration with industry experts and project consultants.

At first inevitably will come: idea, fantasy, fairy tale. Behind them strides scientific calculation, and in the end, performance crowns the idea.

FAQ
Here we will put all the questions and answers that appear in our minds on the website, questions of visitors alike. Most of the question's answers will be provided by myself personally, Aleksey Borisov. Peculiar questions will be answered by specialists from our team.

Completion of the first quarter of the alpha version. Preparing to launch a new campaign on Boomstarter site.
And what will in the alpha-version?
Manned mission to Mars based on scientific program MARS INFOSPHERE.
Why would a man go to Mars? Robots will cope with all tasks.
"Real Universe" is not only an educational project, but also a computer game. It is a role-playing game about space exploration of squad of astronauts, it will be more appealing rather than just a simulator of robotics control.
Due to the game's appearance, it will require "immodest amount of moneyНа вид игра потребует "нескромные деньги". Это так?
Yes. it shall be so. After creating a demo product (alpha version), we will show the materials to potential sponsors.
What if there will be no sponsors? Will you still continue to develop the project?
The project is being developed on personal savings, which, alas, is little. In addition, a small amount of resources was collected during the first campaigns on the Boomstarter website. In the development team, many work for the idea, on enthusiasm. Including the author of the project and the head of the Studio. We are supported by professionals of the space industry, free of charge. In the absence of funding, the process will slow but will cease. Now we are looking forward to acquaintance and collaboration with the Committee of Innovative projects of Youth from RSC Energia.
