Idea #3: World-Builder

An omnipotent figure spends his time creating universes, playing with the ‘universal constants’ and watching the results. Eventually he (it?) comes up with an Earth-like scenario, but he can’t quite figure out how to make more than one habitable planet, or how to keep that planet habitable indefinitely/keep life going indefinitely. It keeps on going wrong- people don’t develop interplanetary capabilities in time to escape the expanding sun, nuclear war and global warming destroy the planet, comets or asteroids break the planet to bits (solved by the inclusion of a larger planet in an outside ring- like Jupiter), etc. Tell the tale of this ‘god’ in the terms of someone playing a world-building game such as Civilization or Empire Earth. Any time the universe goes wrong he can just ‘restart.’
