You are a hyperstellar being in control of some 10^9000 WTFmeters of matter, energy and whatever else, encapsulated in a spherical unit, floating in the middle of unknown aka the real world. Your "tiny" world is populated with a huge diversity of intelligent races (none of which are even important on this scale), who restore its power and integrity, as enigmatic alien structures of even greater sizes roam around and perpetually attack. Unit integrity and energy depend on the inner systems that collapse over time, weakening the inhabitants, and the whole defensive logic. Only you can expand the systems to fix this, but your fight with the universal enthropy will never end.
Your goal is to protect the unit for as long as possible, making your way through humanly unimaginable times and spaces. Your single step is thousands of years.
P. S. Well, this game actually looks so much more like micro-world than macro-world. But wait, how can you tell?!
