The great civilizations have fallen, the great empires lay in ruin and have slipped into myth and legend. From the ashes, rise new civilizations ready to take their place and bring order to a chaotic universe.
TAKAMO UNIVERSE is a strategic science fiction Massive Multiplayer Online game (MMO) set in a persistent and constantly expanding universe.
The game is currently in development.
THE STELLAR CLOUD
- The Stellar Cloud: Exo-What? Exobiotics and Exobotanics – 10/17/2014
Alien biological life and alien botanical life. Those will be two vital fields of study for your exploration teams and your research and development teams in Takamo Universe. Alien creatures and plants will be valuable commodities in the Five Galaxies. They will provide food, construction, medicines, clothing, and chemicals for industry. Discovering additional sources of known alien animal and plant life along with the revelation of new species will be a key task of exploration ships and ground teams in Takamo Universe.
Giant worms rooted to the ocean floor like great trees and bloated floating herd animals are two examples of the kind of alien life you are bound to encounter as your empire spreads across the galaxy. Many of the creatures you find will have great value in the distant alien enclaves of the galaxy. Farming and harvesting these resources will be one of the many tasks your leaders will undertake when you assign them to manage the worlds of your empire.
So what does this mean for players?
Commerce in the galaxy runs off of the trade routes that players create. The trade routes move commodities across vast stretches of space. The exobiotics and exobotanics will make up a substantial percentage of the commodities that are transported along the trade routes that empires establish in the game.
Molnsa Trade Guild freighter: one of the many ship classes used to transport plant and animal life throughout the galaxy.
- The Stellar Cloud: Fort Building – 10/09/2014
Over the past few weeks I have been talking about the various ground units you will be able to build in Takamo Universe. You may be thinking (or hoping) that I am done talking about that. Well, I’m not. Ground units are made up of various sub units like infantry, armor, mechs and artillery. However, there are other units on the ground that are made up of sub units. Case in point: forts.
- The Stellar Cloud: Runts of an Empire, Fight Together – 10/03/2014
I want to introduce you to a ‘Runt’. The meanest runt you’ll ever meet. This guy is a Soelien Twa Infantry Soldier. The Soelien Twa fought side by side with Terran and other Grand Alliance soldiers during the Cyber Rebellion. Twa soldiers were chosen from the smaller members of the Soelien Twa drone cast.

There is an interesting trend in the current galaxy that bears some discussion. It is an old tale but one worth telling again. It is about the tendency to consolidate entire sectors before moving out to claim other worlds. It is a natural desire to make sure the areas (in this case the star systems) around you are safe and free of threats. Read More
I just read about how Mantox’s Grief, a black hole in the Aster Nebula, came to be. I also learned what happened to the Maugham refugees after the I-AM-I cybers destroyed the Maugham homeworld. I never knew this about Takamo and the Estra Galaxy. That is interesting since I created it. Read More
I spent the day thinking over the blessings of the past year. They are legion. Old friends are still there and still bless me whenever we get together. I have made new friends by the bucketload this past year as people have joined the ranks of Takamo Universe programmers, writers, artists, modelers, content builders and supporters. Read More
Each of the writers who submitted stories for the contest did a great job. Thank you for the hard work and creativity that each author put into their stories. Many details will eventually find their way into the ancient archives scattered across the Five Galaxies of Takamo Universe. Read More
NEW forum format!
In an effort to improve the functions of the forum, we have decided to migrate the Takamo Player Forum to another format. We are using a better forum software that is easier to use and is a better environment for discussions.
To use the new forum, you have to have a new username and password. This week is our “beta test” for the new forum. There may be some bugs or glitches that we have not noticed, so please feel free to relay these to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you need any assistance setting up an account, please also let us know.
If you are a part of an alliance channel, please let us know when you have signed up for your new account. We will then be able to grant you access to your alliance channel.
Here is the new forum link:
At the end of the week, we will automatically redirect traffic to the new forum. We plan to shut down this old forum by the end of this week. We have made an effort to archive some of the previous posts, so that you still have access to the old content in the new forum.
Check out our updated “Recruit a Friend” program!
