about Universal Happymaker

Universal Happymaker builds games that are moral laboratories.

We intend to create a world where everyone enjoys our games WITHOUT EXCEPTION.

Astronaut: The Best is a narrative strategy game where you turn underdogs into presentable astronauts using lies, magic, and/or hard work. Mold your recruits. Modify their personalities. Acquiesce to demands by the powerful.

Most people think of the space race as a fancy way to kill dogs using explosives. In Flaustria, it is conducted with class. A model astronaut must show sparkling wit, a winning smile, and perhaps a working knowledge of what the spaceship buttons do. In Astronaut: The Best, your duty is to train a procedurally-generated team of deviant screwups into brilliant space heroes, or give the impression of having done so. Anything less, and you will be killed and left in a ditch.
