"Universe is a graphical sci-fi, futuristic adventure game, originally released in 1994 and published by Core Design as their second (after Curse of Enchantia) and last effort in the genre. (...)
The player takes role of the young man named Boris Verne, who is taken to a distant future/parallel universe from the present time, when playing around with his uncle's "Virtual Dimension Inducer" invention. Boris finds himself in a universe reminiscent to that of Star Wars and the Galactic Empire as well as being at the centre of a prophecy that says that he will overthrow the evil Emperor-King Neiamises, who possesses god-like powers and is bent on conquest of the whole galaxy, and thus bring peace to the universe. Throughout the game Boris encounters allies, enemies and a whole host of aliens and strange beings on a variety of worlds, installations and starships."
