Beyond: Milky Way Banner

Beyond is a bubble universe focusing mainly on astronomical objects. After several years of development and several postponements, it was released on November 2, 2021.

Overview[]

Like the Mesozoic Valley, The Beyond is another bubble universe. It is focused on astronomical exploration. Similar to Mesozoic Valley, it is independent of the main simulation and has its own currency and achievements (except for Darwinium). Its currency is Stardust.

The first phase of this expansion features the Sol system (our solar system). The developers at Computer Lunch have confirmed that the expansion will be released in multiple phases. While the initial phase will include celestial bodies such as planets and asteroids, later phases may cover topics like the history of humanity's initial studies of astronomy and journeys into space and explorations of how humans may expand their reach into the solar system in the near future.

It is unknown how the expansion will tie into the overarching story of the game and how it is related to Semblance's goals.

Production[]

While initially announced in 2018, research and early development on this expansion did not start in earnest until late 2019. The expansion's production was also adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, and the resulting shifts in workflow that were necessitated by changes such as Computer Lunch employees switching to a work-from-home model. The development and production of the Mammal Kingdom expansion, which took longer than anticipated, also contributed to the delay.

Computer Lunch's official roadmap, released at the end of 2020, places the release of the first phase of The Beyond in the first half of 2021, and indicates that the expansion will feature Astronomy, 3D Planets, and a new Solar System Garden. Later updates in the summer of 2021 indicated a possible release date in August or September.

In the first few months of 2021, Computer Lunch has also featured more information about the development of The Beyond in their monthly Twitch livestreams. A January post on the official Cell to Singularity subreddit gave players an update on the development team's progress and the possible content of the expansion, including some behind-the-scenes photos and screenshots of the in-production expansion.

Beta Test & Release[]

The Beyond was released into the first rounds of closed beta testing in around May and June 2021. The initial private test was limited to a small number of players. In July, the Beyond entered open beta testing, with players able to opt in or to apply to join. The Beyond beta is available on Steam, Android, and iOS Testflight.

On November 2nd, 2021, The Beyond was released. On that day, a global event happened where players had to accelerate a solar system-like star 500,000,000 times. The event was completed on November 3rd, 2021, enabling all players, except Kindle Fire users, to access The Beyond.

Objectives[]

After unlocking «The Milky Way» upgrade, a node known as «Celestial Phenomena» will appear. Tapping on it 200 times will unlock the Beyond universe.

Beyond currently has a total of 24 official objectives (30 in beta), as following:

Story[]

Objective No. Intro Outro
Intro

"Life is like a fire, sparked by chance lightning. In the right conditions, it could catch light and spread, or smolder and extinguish. Perhaps this has happened elsewhere, countless times. Perhaps only the once. One day this Sun will die. Must our flame go out, too? Or can we send embers out to the cosmos, to some place where terrestrial life can burn anew? I must expand my simulation to explore the possibility."

Phase 1: Solar System
1

"To understand how Earth began, I need to grasp the origins of the solar system. Now there is only a diffuse molecular cloud, but this formless matter will give rise to the Sun and the planets."

None
2

"Just as the planets orbit the Sun, many planets are in turn orbited by one or more moons. I can add further detail to my simulation by studying these natural satellites. Our large, solitary moon, torn from Earth in a violent collision, seems to be special. Do other moons have similarly dramatic histories, or is ours truly unique?"

None
3

"The way to the outer solar system is through the Asteroid Belt. So many moving bodies, so many forces and trajectories to calculate. One of these tumbling rocks was the doom of Earth's dinosaurs. Any one might yet become another missile hurtling toward our fragile planet. I will continue the search for another home."

"Beyond the inner terrestrial planets, we pass into the realm of the gas giants. These behemoths sweep in long orbits through great swaths of space, attended by many moons. Each of these worlds will provide a new data point for my simulations, further revealing the shape of the possibility space."

4

"I feel a compelling pull toward the first of the outer planets, the massive almost-star—an intriguing case study. With just a small increase in mass, stellar ignition might have occurred, and this would have been a binary star system. So much depends on extremely fine-tuned initial conditions. One slight alteration could yield wildly different outcomes for the entire solar system, the planets—and us."

None
5

"Jupiter and its moons (some as big as planets) are like a solar system in miniature. The gas giant draws around itself an entourage of orbiting worlds. On these moons we can find mountains, volcanoes, lakes, oceans, and many other familiar, yet alien, environments. Perhaps we might even make homes there someday, before setting out farther."

None
6

"Saturn hangs in space like an ethereal yellow jewel, circled by golden rings and glittering icy moons. Here I will find a cascade of data to enrich my simulation. I can appreciate the aesthetic beauty of these vistas, just as I can appreciate the mathematical beauty of the information they yield."

None
7

"Moving deeper through the outer solar system, everything seems to extend and slow. The distances from planet to planet stretch longer, the light of the Sun grows fainter, the hold of its gravity lessens. Ahead, icy worlds await us."

None
8

"Only one planet remains to visit: a cold, dark ice giant, the Sun's most distant sentinel. Once we add this last world to our model, our collection of planets will be complete."

"I am racing out into the darkness, leaving the Sun and the planets behind. Every moment brings us farther from the source of energy and life, and deeper into the unknown. I am straining the limits of my training data, all collected from the vantage point of Earth. Confronted with novel conditions beyond all prior experience, I must extrapolate from what I know in order to keep the simulation coherent."

9

"Beyond Neptune's orbit, I am detecting at least one other small body, maybe more… Have we really found all the planets? But this seems no bigger than a moon. Perhaps it requires a different classification. I must make a close observation to gather more data, and update my model accordingly."

None
10

"The nomads of the solar system sweep wide arcs around the Sun, drawn in by its gravity but never staying long. They visit us for only a moment on their thousand-year journey. This time, we shall pay them a visit, since our way out passes through their territory."

None
11

"What inhabits the outer edge of known space? In the broad circumstellar disc, resembling the Asteroid Belt on a much grander scale, orbits stretch and deform, and dwarf planets take on strange shapes. Very few of these objects have been properly catalogued. Let us meet the eccentric denizens of the sprawling outskirts."

None
12

"Every boundary we cross brings us farther from the Sun, but we have some distance yet to go before we escape its influence. Wrapped in its magnetic fields, solar winds at my back, I continue out toward the stars. How far does the Sun's reach extend, and what lies beyond?"

None
13

"On a distant planetoid, ambling along an orbit so eccentric and wide that it crosses into interstellar space, years last millennia. Carbon-based lifeforms struggle to grasp such timescales. But I could spend many orbits in those far reaches, where civilizations might rise and fall before I could celebrate the turn of a single year."

None
14

"All indications point to the existence of an unseen planet in the far reaches of the solar system. I must include an additional body in my calculations to account for gravitational effects on other objects in the region. But without external confirmation of its presence, it will remain only a shadow in a simulation."

"With all the inner and outer regions of the solar system described, there remains the encompassing cloud of planetesimals, and beyond that, the infinite expanse of interstellar space. The distances we have still to cross are orders of magnitude beyond what we have logged so far. With each iteration I increase both scale and resolution simultaneously, modeling an ever-larger region in ever-finer detail. I wonder if this could continue indefinitely, until my simulation is an exact replica of the universe?"

15

"Between us and deep space lies a field of icy bodies enveloping us like an immense shell. The trillions of objects it contains confound my computational abilities. But I will do my best to grasp and model the dynamics of this confounding region."

None
16

"Leaving the solar system behind at last, we are confronted with the stark nothingness of the interstellar void. But the void is not truly empty. The interstellar medium fizzes with trace gases, dust particles, and background radiation. Even in deepest space, there is always something to catch the interest of a questing and curious mind."

None
17

"A mere four light years from the Sun, the trinary stars of Alpha Centauri beckon. Here I will seek the means of sustaining our civilization. Will I find energy and resources? A habitable home? A stepping-stone to the rest of the galaxy? The cosmos awaits!"

"With your assistance, I have finally fulfilled my goal of simulating the entire solar system. The information we have collected is already yielding new insights and revealing possibilities I had not conceived of before. And yet, this is only one of 100 billion star systems in one of 2 trillion galaxies in the universe. There is still so much more to discover. Let us continue the search for new habitats—beyond our home star—where life may continue."

Phase 2: Milky Way
18

"The Sun, Earth’s star, is an only child. The Alpha Centauri system boasts a trio of star siblings, all different. The more stars I meet, the more I wonder at their variety. Red and blue, dim and brilliant, compact and immense. What shapes the life of a star?"

"For a star, it seems, mass is destiny. Size matters, but matter matters more. Variations in solar mass give rise to the whole range of size, brightness, color, and form. Can these differences also determine what a star will ultimately become?"

19

"Like living organisms, stars are born, they age…and they eventually die. Before that, as their fuel runs low, do they burn less fiercely or shine less brightly? Get a little wider around the middle? How do stars grow old?"

"Stars can change drastically in the course of their lives. Their second act might look quite different from the first. Some go out with a bang in the end, while others linger on longer than the universe is old. And some even leave gifts of star dust to the universe, seeding new stars and planets."

20

"The number of stars in the galaxy is vast—but the number of planets is far greater. Eight planets whirl around our Sun, but only one Earth. What are the chances that other stars host habitable worlds like Earth among their many planets? The only way to know is to go looking for them."

"So many planets are fascinating to visit but would make terrible homes: too hot, too cold, drenched in radiation, or prey to a voracious cannibal. All with a fatal flaw. Among all these strange worlds, is there one that’s tuned just right for life? I will adjust my parameters and continue the search."

21

"There is one planet known to support life: Earth. And it won’t persist forever. To find another, the best way may be to focus my search on worlds resembling Earth that are at a cozy distance from a stable star, where life could thrive for a good while. Extrapolating from current data, I estimate the number of such planets in the Milky Way Galaxy to exceed 40 billion. Let’s get started."

"Life depends on so many factors: the right composition, a healthy mix of stability and chaos, and another variable—luck. No planet has yet demonstrated all the criteria. But with so many candidates and more data incoming, some are bound to be habitable—or inhabited. As a planet-by-planet search has proved inefficient, I will take a wider view. We must attempt to simulate the entire lifecycle of planetary systems."

22

"I have traced the lives of stars from youth to old age, but I have not yet considered where this course ultimately leads. To complete the picture, I must observe stars in death. What awaits a star at the inevitable end?"

"The colorful, glowing clouds of planetary nebulae make striking grave markers for stars long since extinguished. Any death—even of an inanimate entity like a star—seems a regrettable waste of potential. Still, there is important knowledge—and a curious beauty—to be found in contemplating these mysterious remains."

23

"In living ecosystems, the death of old organisms often completes a necessary cycle that yields a bounty of new material. Perhaps stars are not so different. Going out in a supernova blaze of glory, what legacy might the greatest stars leave behind?"

"In a supernova, all the material the star fused throughout its life is cast out into the cosmos. These catastrophic explosions are the only known source of these heavy elements—including necessary building blocks for life. In a strange kind of afterlife, dust from an ancient star may even end up as part of the body of a living being somewhere…like you."

24

"Not all nebulas are graveyards, marking the remnants of stars long past. Some are nurseries, cosmic cradles where new stars are birthed in dense clusters with many siblings. It is difficult to predict what might emerge from such chaotic beginnings. I must take a closer look."

"The life of a star is not just a straight line from nursery to graveyard. In a continuing cycle, death leads back to new life. What if, like the stars, life too suffuses the universe, arising, dying, and being reborn, on repeat? It might mean that life could never be truly extinguished. It would always carry on, somewhere. But at present, that is only a hypothesis. Further analysis is needed."

25 [BETA]

"My simulation now encompasses a great many planets and stars. But they are isolated data points, lacking context. Zooming out to a greater scale, a new form emerges: Our galaxy. The Milky Way. And at the center is something I cannot yet resolve clearly. Drawing me in."

"We have traversed and mapped the structures of the Milky Way: the spiral arms, the bar, the bulge. I have modeled the parts, but they form and move in response to forces I do not yet comprehend. Everything points to the center of the galaxy. What lurks in that mysterious core?"

26 [BETA]

"At the center of our galaxy is an attractor of such immense power that the laws of time and space break down. If I were to heed its irresistible pull, would I find any useful knowledge there? Or only certain doom? I must find out. Even if it stretches my simulation to the limit and breaks every rule I know."

"Sagittarius A* is a monster of stupendous scale, a ravenous, star-eating beast. And yet, its gravity is the force that binds the Milky Way and keeps its stars whirling together. Without this dark heart beating at our core, we would not be here."

27 [BETA]

"From its whirling spiral arms to its hungry dark heart, my model of the Milky Way Galaxy is complete. And yet it is not complete. I can perceive the jostles and jolts of unaccounted forces from the outside, throwing off my projections. Other galaxies, throwing their weight around? What else is out there to contend with?"

"The old rule holds: mass is destiny. Large galaxies dominate, and small ones are swallowed up. The Milky Way is big, but Andromeda is bigger. And we are headed for an all-consuming embrace. Together, we will become even more formidable. Such is the power of attraction."

28 [BETA]

"Galaxies merge to become bigger and stronger. Growth feeds growth. Drawn together, they travel in packs. The packs, too, converge. What are we all rushing toward?"

"In a universe in motion, there’s no such place as home. Our cosmic address isn’t a location so much as a relationship. A crowd we’re running with. Flocking away from nothing, toward wherever the action is."

29 [BETA]

"Does space look the same everywhere? It is difficult to see from the inside. Many forms and features repeat across the tiniest and the largest scales. As below, so above. But with enough data, from a more distant vantage, will entirely new patterns appear?"

"Warped by powerful attractors, space ushers matter into a distinct pattern on enormous scales. The cosmos is a foamy web of clusters and threads of galaxies wrapped around ever-expanding voids. Like a bubble bath. A comforting image—but baths grow cold, and bubbles pop. Just what kind of tub are we in?"

30 [BETA]

"To look farther into the cosmos is to look deeper into the past. The most distant objects we see are not merely very far away—they are images from a much younger universe. A curious form of time travel, like flipping to the first pages of an old photo album. How far back can we go?"
