EV Nova Update on OS X, Other Issues
9:23 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A new update to the official Escape Velocity Nova progress log has been made by Ambrosia's Matt Burch. This latest update, while not very long, does point to the fact that the title is making good progress. Burch states that EV Nova is very close to being completely Carbonized and therefore able to run 'natively' under OS X. Here's the full update:

  • integrated latest Ambrosia sound and registration libraries
  • game volume is now separate from system volume
  • weapons can be made to pass through shields
  • hypergates can be animated
  • removed forklift cheat and secret about text (to be replaced by something more interesting at a later date)
  • lots and lots of tweaks and bugfixes
  • game is Carbonized except for screen fading / resolution switching
  • This is great news for fans of the series, as it means this third title will be available for just about any modern Mac OS. For more details on EV Nova and some great screen shots, head over to Ambrosia's official page for the game.
