About Shaostoul

Project Universe (PU)

is a global endeavor to prepare humanity for the future! Development began January 29th, 2019 on the free globally accessible school platform, free-to-play sci-fi simulation MMO, and the tools that make development a whole lot easier. Our growing family of businesses, developers, fans, and many other volunteers are collaborating to bring you the future of education and entertainment.

The School

I love teaching, been doing it for a long time, so we're taking it to an unprecedented level by creating a free globally accessible school. As the game develops we're creating a powerful server infrastructure capable of supporting more than just a video game, so instead of limiting ourselves we're using it to benefit humanity as much as possible. We're partnering with various schools and educational businesses across the globe to bring a whole new form of education that is free, robust, ready for the future, and easily updated to reflect humanity's evolution. I believe nearly all conflict is resolved by proper unbiased education.

The Game

Is a combination of many different games, at it's core it is a sci-fi simulation MMO linking everything else together. Players are crew members aboard a fleet of colony ships on a mission to colonize our galaxy. Along the way players will encounter new aliens, stumble upon derelict spacecraft/stations, farm crops and harvest asteroids to gather resources for themselves and the fleet, defend the fleet from invaders and alien infestations, and a whole lot more!

As unequipped humans players will primarily conduct business on the fleet, they typically will not embark on missions unless they dawn protective gear. There is a huge array of equipment available ranging from handheld weaponry, power armor, tanks, mechs, spacecraft, and everything in between. If you can dream it, we'll make it and get it in game!

The Tools

It is imperative that we create the best tools we can as it lessens the load on our developers, increases the pool of volunteers by making the process easier, and effectively speeds up development. It does have the side-effect of making initial development take longer, but in the long term it's the best thing you can do.
