SimPocalypse Launched out of Early Access on Steam - time to rebuild civilization!
Reading Time: 3 minutes

Surviving the post-apocalyptic times
We’ve all probably wondered how we would fare in a post-apocalyptic world, exploring devastated lands, scavenge for resources, try to survive, and help lead fellow survivors towards a more thriving world. This urge to rebuild and re-conquer a desolate world is what SimPocalypse tries to instill at the core of its experience, as it has now released out of Early Access on Steam.

Rebuild the civilization
Unlike most other city builders and post-apocalyptic games, SimPocalypse focuses more on the broad macro-management of rebuilding civilization. The game starts with you managing a small group of survivors, thinking of how to most efficiently organize them to gather resources and rebuild the basics to keep your people alive. Once you manage to live through the early stages, you will quickly become a refuge to other survivors, and become a beacon of hope to rebuild the modern pillars of society as we know it.

An apocalyptic event is ought to teach people humility, and learn to coexist and prosper towards building a common, better world, right?
Ummm… nope, not really – You will find out that in order to expand and repopulate the world to what it once was, you will have to expand because that is the only way to ensure you can rebuild a better world. And as in real life, expansion can be both of military or economic nature, the choice is up to you.

Control billions of citizens and rebuild millions of structures
The developers at Gamex Studio wanted to deliver a deep managerial experience that eventually gets you to control up to billions of citizens and rebuild millions of structures as you try to balance the wellbeing of your people, battle random events, and expand to all continents of the world.

You will realize that certain public jobs, such as doctors, policeman, and firefighters are a must to keep your people content and safe, and that the only way to build a better world is through research and urbanistic advancements.

Managing billions of people – ain’t nobody got time for that!
SimPocalyse’s vast array of Quality of Life and automation features got you covered and ensure you can always focus on making broad strategical and optimization decisions, and let the game’s features do the heavy lifting of crunching big numbers. And if that’s not enough, you can always utilize the game’s timelapse feature and play the game at your own pace of up to x10 speed.

“Giving players the tools to focus on the broad strategy, instead of doing the repetitive, boring gruntwork, is extremely important to us in a management/simulation game.” said the developers, who wanted to give an experience with a lot of depth and ways to play. The game features 100+ unique unlocks and upgrades, procedural generation of the world, and random events, and requires 20+ hours to complete a single playthrough at x10 speed. Yet… that is not the end – players can choose to attempt harder difficulties, complete challenges or just shoot for the sky with reaching insane numbers with its prestige function, that allow players a sort of a sandbox experience with massive boosts the more times you play it.

A fresh take on a genre
SimPocalypse is an attempt to deliver a deep and replayable incremental/idle experience, but also offer 4x, strategy, and city builder players a fresh take on a genre that often tends to overwhelm with the repetitive micro-management.

SimPocalypse (Windows & Linux)  is now available to play on Steam for 9.99 – with 20% off during the launch week (ends on May 18th).


Now Available in 14 languages already for Windows & Linux
SimPocalypse is playable in 14 languages already), covering the biggest language markets, such as English, Simplified Chinese, Russian, German, Spanish (Spain & Latin America), French, Polish, Korean, Italian, Turkish, Portuguese, Dutch. Gamex Studio also added additional Portuguese- Brazil translations of the game directly on the Launch Day.

The game is currently available on for Windows & Linux.

SimPocalypse was featured on the Steam Autumn Festival with its very first Demo back then, and later on, released into Early Access on December 15th. After regular updates and massive recent UI rework, they are now just one bigger update away from going out of Early Access.

Galaxy Racer (GXR), the biggest esports, gaming and lifestyle organisation, headquartered in Dubai, is pleased to announce that its content creator, AboFlah, has successfully raised over US$11M in a charity stream for The World’s Coolest Winter campaign. Whilst completing the stream, AboFlah also officially broke two GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ titles for the “Longest live-stream (video)”, recording live for 268 hours 14 mins 20 seconds and “Most viewers for a charity donation live stream on YouTube”, attracting 698,000 peak concurrent views.

The World’s Coolest Winter campaign, celebrates the UAE’s most beautiful tourism destinations, extended it’s humanitarian support to more than 100,000 refugees and people in need through a new humanitarian initiative called Warm Winter. The campaign aims to support hundreds of thousands of refugees and families in need in Africa and the Arab world by providing food, winter clothing, blankets, mattresses and critical aid to help displaced men, women and children prepare for harsh winter conditions. The campaign is being held in partnership with Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) and Galaxy Racer. The essential aid will be distributed with the support of the UN refugee agency, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Food Banking Regional Network.

As part of the campaign, AboFlah lived in a glass room in Downtown Dubai, near the Burj Khalifa and streamed continuously for 268 hours until the target of US$10 million was raised. While in the room, AboFlah encouraged people to donate and spent the majority of his time in front of his computer interacting with fans and those donating to the cause. The stream also attracted global attention and donations from celebrities and influencers including the likes of actress Kristin Davies, actor Amr Maskoun as well as content creators Noor Stars and Omar Farooq.

Launching his YouTube channel in 2017, AboFlah began posting gaming content of him playing FIFA17 before creating content on Fall Guys and Fortnite. His YouTube channel is one of the fastest-growing YouTube channels in the world, with over 23 million subscribers and over 3 billion views. He is followed by millions of fans who avidly watch his vlogs, comedy shorts and formatted shows covering video games and popular culture. AboFlah went on to join Galaxy Racer’s content creator team in 2020, which already boasts some of the biggest content creators in the MENA and Southeast Asia region including fellow YouTube sensation Noor Stars. The organisation now carries over 100 content creators, with a total reach of over 500 million followers across all platforms and more than 2.5 billion monthly views.

Galaxy Racer launched in 2019 and has already become one of the biggest esports, gaming, and lifestyle organisations globally. The organisation has five separate business offerings; Content Creators, Esports Teams, Tournament Management, Merchandising and Lifestyle and GXR Records, a newly established record label that already carries two signed artists from the MENA region and are looking to expand globally.

Galaxy Racer content creator and YouTube sensation, Hassan Suleiman “AboFlah” said: “Warmth in winter for those facing harsh winter conditions is no less important than food and water. There are millions of refugees and displaced people who need all the support they can get. I am proud and thrilled we achieved our goal and raised over US$11 million and brought warmth to the lives of those who are deprived of it. Thank you to everyone who generously donated!

We have proven that Arab youth are capable of changing reality, even with small deeds, and reaching a bright future. “People for People.” This sentence is not a metaphorical slogan, but it was manifested by the huge numbers of donors who felt compassion toward the suffering of refugees and displaced people. This reflects the huge impact this campaign had, which drove viewers’ enthusiasm for participation.

The societal role depends on everyone’s participation, believing in the importance of upholding our human values, and the solidarity in supporting the ones in need. Everyone of us has a role to play in creating the desired positive impact. UAE is the homeland of virtues, and the humanitarian moral actions in this blessed country transcend borders and can’t be stopped by obstacles, such deeds present the community with moral values that our Arab region is in dire need for.”

Galaxy Racer Founder and CEO, Paul Roy said: “We are amazed and grateful by the immense generosity shown by the fans, community and the general public. Raising over US$11 million is no easy task and we’re glad to be part of this humanitarian initiative which will positively impact the affected 100,000 refugees. Smashing two GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ titles is impressive and a testament to the resilience shown by AboFlah, the Galaxy Racer team, together with our partners MBRGI, UNHCR and the Food Banking Regional Network. We thank you everyone for participating in this record-breaking charity initiative and we look forward to more positive impact initiatives.”

Southeast Asian esports organisation EVOS Esports has partnered with Avarik Saga, a Japanese RPG NFT P2E metaverse game, to expand the former’s collection of games, including the adoption of blockchain-based games.

Set to launch in the third quarter of this year, Avarik Saga is a strategic team-building game under the Japanese RPG genre that aims to bring the modern game experience into the NFT metaverse space. Under the partnership, EVOS Esports will introduce blockchain technology to potentially untapped audiences in Indonesia and other Southeast Asian countries. This includes people who have not previously engaged with NFTs or games in general.

According to EVOS, it believes NFT play-to-earn (P2E) metaverse games such as Avarik Saga can empower fans and communities, and this partnership will propel the company towards its ambition of becoming the first blockchain game company in Indonesia.

EVOS CMO Michael Wijaya said that he is very excited that EVOS can help Avarik Saga tap into existing local gaming communities and introduce the first Indonesian NFT P2E Metaverse RPG game, as well as foster a solid relationship to spearhead the blockchain game experience.

In September last year, Avarik Saga released its first playable NFT character collection of 8888 genesis NFTs, which sold out in less than an hour. The collection is currently available for trading in a secondary NFT marketplace, OpenSea.

While leveraging the enticement of RPG gameplays, Avarik Saga itself aims to use its P2E format, coupled with the enticement of RPG gameplays, to help accelerate the mass-market adoption of NFT gaming in Southeast Asian countries.

Avarik Saga CEO Kevin Cahya said that P2E is a mechanism that can only be a worthwhile venture if the game drives excitement and value to the community.

“In the end, the core of the game itself has to be enjoyable. A strong lore that entices the user to the Avarik Saga universe, a clear game mechanic that is engaging and content that makes the player want to come back is key. So, we want to develop an attractive game that appeals to the masses, even Gojek drivers and warung (small shop) owners, so they can earn real money while experiencing a digital world,” he added.
