There is some gameplay desrcibe smile.png

In ‘The Mims Beginning' game we play as a ruler of the Mims colony. The Mims are sympathetic creatures travelling through the outer space in search of a friendly world to settle and colonize.
During the intergalactic journey their spaceship was destroyed by an asteroid and the crew was forced to evacuate on the nearby planets which were not always friendly.
Player's goal is to perform various tasks due to reconstruct the spaceship. We can make this task easier by the proper development of our planets.
The basic element which is necessary to the colony existence and development is energy. This energy is necessary to rebuild the Mims' vitality used while performing work and proper functioning of the infrastructure. It is produced in a generator for Biomass derived from special fruit processed in the Extractor. Part of the energy can also be obtained from the flow of winds thanks to correct placement of Wind Turbines.
The tasks performed by the Mims should include the expansion of the colony and picking up the Bio fruit.
Some of the Mims act as a protection against the dangers lurking from various creatures attracted to our planet by scent of fruit and animals.
As a ruler you can create the Defenders Mims and we also have Psi power to our disposal, some of which can be used for defense against these creatures. Mims knowledge allows them to create animals which diets are appropriate sets of fruit.
Grown animals can be sent to ‘Space Market' and exchanged for crystals necessary for further development of the colony.
In order to obtain fruit for the animals we need to plat various plants with different forms of fruiting. An example can be a plant with exploding fruit.


An important element is a planting site.
A clever ruler is able to use a topography thereby avoiding excessive scattering of fruit all over the planet. In case of a bad organization we can lose some crops due to fruit rolling down the edge of the planet.
Equally important factor making loss is inevitable disintegration of fruit which were not picked up on time.
In the game we can develop both buildings, plants, acquire new Psi powers, as well as learn our Mims new skills.
As the ruler of the managed colony we can sit in the Psi Tower which repeatedly reinforces our supernatural abilities. As a result we have a range of abilities which can affect the environment of our planet.
Among other things, it becomes possible to influence the development of vegetation growing on the planet. In case of excessive accumulation of fruit we are able to reduce it with the adequate power. We also have the ability of destructive nature. One is the explosion of power that we can use defending against oncoming predators and keep them away from our subjects.
But these are just a few of the aspects of the thriving colony.
But there are many more, such as Biomass storage problems, starving animals, and preparing for upcoming events and disasters.
The plans are two game modes.
An adventure mode telling about rebuilding the damaged spacecraft and a free mode where a player develops a colony without a specific objective. In the adventure mode we struggle with the problems which another Mims survivors have to deal with. They will be forced to fight not only with the geological difficulties on encountered planets, but also the threats of cosmic nature. During their adventure they will come across the mysterious worlds, full of unusual and bizarre creatures and sinister plants standing in their way to find the remains necessary to rebuild the ship.
Some of our groups of survivors found their way in places so inhospitable that their very survival will be considered as a success.

Who we are ? :

We are a duo of dreamers with different perspective on the world. One day we decided to make a video game, and surprisingly, we did. Our friend joined this crazy idea and made a magical music.

Now we only need your votes to show everybody that dreams really come true and guys from nowhere can make something big.

We have made this game for 10 months and We still have a lot of work smile.png (about 20 % to the end )

Because ‘The Mims Beginning' is in a phase where there is still a
possibility of change, we are open to ideas of community interested in a

and our webpage www.mimsthegame.com smile.png  and if you like it like us  and join to our community
