The independent German game studio simulogics announced on December 13 that their space economy sim, Prosperous Universe launched into First Access.
Prosperous Universe is set in the not too distant future as a real-time business simulation MMO. Players are the CEO of their own space-based company. As head of the company players can explore the galaxy, design spaceships, forge alliances, in addition to usual business activities such as production, trade, transportation, and profit.
Players manage their business through APEX, a highly customizable UI, accessible by means of a web browser. Players drive the economy in this persistent universe through their actions and play styles. An emphasis on realism creates a unique gameplay experience for players.
The goals of First Access are to build a game community, integrate player feedback, and help fund the game’s development until the full release. First Access keys are available for purchase now. After the First Access phase, the game will become free to play with the option to buy a “Pro License” to unlock all features. There will be no microtransactions or pay-to-win components to Prosperous Universe.
