God-like game The Mims Beginning available on Steam Early Access

After three years of sweat and tears from the development team, the god-like game The Mims Beginning has finally released on Steam as an Early Access game earlier this year. The Mims Beginning is a debut effort from Squatting Penguins but only time will tell if their first try will be successful.

Since the game is a god-like video game, it allows you to build structures, plant vegetation and breed animals as you take care of your precious Mims. Disaster can come in many forms: mother nature but monsters will also roam your floating villages from time to time. You’ll need to take care of your minions as you predict the future, reveal secrets. All while you use divine PSI powers to lead your Mims on their epic quest during their travels.

The game offers ten playable levels plus two levels of prologue. This is enough content to keep a player busy for 12 to 20 hours, depending on experience and whether or not you’d go for optional content. New levels, additional side missions and brand new enemies will be added with upcoming updates, only increasing the already large content.

Content aside, the game offers plenty of features with only more features to be added in the future. Here’s a list of current and future features:

  • God simulation

  • Colony expansion
  • Autonomous characters
  • Technology research
  • Creating & upgrading structures
  • Various species of plants with different ways of yielding fruit

  • Real Time Physics
  • Planting your own fruit crops
  • Timeline mechanic allowing to predict future events
  • Smell sensor – excessive odor will attract pests and predators
  • Varied floating islands with many unusual adventures

Planned features:
