    The Mims Beginning

    Check out our Indiegogo Project http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-mims-beginning/x/3944421
  3. Quote Quote Quote   We are a team of three people sharing a mutual dream of developing our own game.   One day, about 18 months ago, we decided to create our own game. It was not an easy task, but from the very beginning we were engaging in it with passion and persistence. Even after our accounts dried out, we loaned to cover our life expenses. Since our situation became so complicated we decided to try crowdfunding to help us finish our project and deliver it to the gamers. We need YOUR support in order to complete our project without haste and pressure.   Together, let’s make the world a little more fun!     Visit The Mims Beginning FORUM There is beta access and a special forum for supporter with "Fast Penguin" or higher level. There will be 2-3 beta versions of game before release. We will share also the beta demo for everyone soon, so follow us ! “The Mims Beginning” is a Real Time Strategy game with a dose of cosmic humor. The story takes place in an unknown space and time. In this galaxy mythical floating islands give shelter to all kinds of unusual and dangerous creatures. The game combines numerous types of gameplay. Your colonists act on their own most of the time, they do their duties without order from the leader. However, you can control them directly by issuing simple commands. With a use of godlike PSI powers the leader can influence living things in his range of power and strengthen his colony. This feature is quite similar to the “Populous the Beginning” game. The game focuses mainly on expansion and defense of the the colony. Every building or plant placement is important, but still the game is to be considered a light strategy. There are also elements known to more casual gamers, that will require fast reactions from the player. As a player you act as the current leader of a Mims settlement. The Mims are sympathetic creatures traveling through outer space in search of a friendly world to settle. During the intergalactic journey their spaceship is destroyed by an asteroid and the crew is forced to evacuate on nearby planets which are not always friendly. Your goal is to perform various tasks required to reconstruct the spaceship. You can help them by properly developing your new colonies. Every mission takes place on a different planet where separate groups of castaways face their own fate. "The Mims Beginning started off as an idea for a strategy game and evolved into a beautiful world with a beautiful story. You play a God-like caretaker of a colony of creatures called Mims who are space travelers stranded in a strange place when their ship was hit by a meteor" Biasbear.com  The basic element which is crucial for the colony’s existence and development is energy. The energy is necessary to replenish the Mims’ vitality used up while performing work, also for proper functioning of the infrastructure. It is produced in a generator using Bio Mass derived from special fruit processed in the Extractor. Part of the energy can also be obtained from the wind flow 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 various and dangerous creatures attracted to our planet by the scent of fruit and animals. The Mims’ knowledge allows them to create animals that feed on appropriate sets of fruit. Grown animals can be sent to the ‘Space Market’ and exchanged for crystals necessary for further development of the colony. In order to grow fruit for the animals they need to sow seeds from various plant species. Among others, an exploding plant that throws fruit around. Choosing good planting sites is important. A clever ruler is able to use topography thereby avoiding excessive scattering of fruit all over the planet. In case of a bad placement crop is lost due to fruit rolling off the edge of the planet. As the ruler of the colony you govern from the Psi Tower which greatly reinforces your supernatural abilities. As a result you have a range of powers that can affect the environment of our planet. If the crops are not harvested on time they will rot and you will lose important resources. In the game you can develop buildings, plants, acquire new Psi powers, as well as invent new skills for your Mims.

    The Mims Beginning

    "In the spirit of brevity, if you like Populous and/or found Bullfrog titles of yore to be up your alley, heave coin into the construction pool and stay tuned. The Mims: Beginning does justice to the Molyneux heyday – arguably the zenith of the quirky simulation – by being both irrepressibly charming and filled to the brim with those curious mechanical subsystems we rarely see in contemporary gaming."

  7. Hi I'm representing 2 person team. We are making The Mims Beginning Game We The project is here http://www.indiedb.com/games/the-mims-beginning   There is also our project on steam greenlight ;)  http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=136239549 There is some gameplay desrcibe 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 (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 game. and our webpage www.mimsthegame.com   and if you like it like us  and join to our community   [attachment=14837:mimsfull.jpg]
