11:40 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
The upcoming projects section of the Ambrosia Software web site has been updated with four small movies of Escape Velocity Nova in action, revealing for the first time the many new special effects and engine enhancements that should make this sequel a treat for both fans and first-timers. While the EV Nova beta screen shots page cautions that the graphics and sounds in these movies are not "final" (as the game is still in development) they reveal a radical change in appearance from the tiny sprites and 8-bit graphics of the previous incarnations of the EV series. Ships can now vary from tiny to colossal in size, and various 16-bit graphic effects such as alpha blending, transparency and lighting are revealed.

According to the latest developer update, this title is still in Alpha status (1.0.0a2) despite the name of the screen shots page. The game is expected to be released at the end of 2001, and will be Carbonized for Mac OS X.
