Quick EV: Nova Update
9:01 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
A new update to the Escape Velocity: Nova progress log was made early this morning with the latest on the title's art and interface work. It seems they are getting very close to having the bulk of the graphics work completed, as the game is now moving towards the end of the alpha stages of development at Ambrosia Software.
Escape Velocity: Nova is the much-anticipated third title in this series, and will be an attempt to bring a cutting-edge 2D engine with many special effects to a now-classic style of gaming which blends plot and intrigue with action and swashbuckling adventure. EVN has been in development for quite some time, but according to this latest update the extended alpha development period may be drawing to a close.
Here's the quick update from the boards:
