Escape Velocity: Nova Progress Report
6:00 AM | Max Dyckhoff | Comment on this story

A update to the progress log for Escape Velocity: Nova went unheeded during all the excitement of Macworld Expo last week. Ambrosia Software's Matt Burch has written explaining why EV Nova hasn't been released yet, and why we should be impressed when it is, as shareware no less.

A note on the complexity of this project:

EV Nova contains:

  • Over 290,000 words of text
  • Over 200,000 lines of code
  • Over 150 megs of graphics
And we all have to hold down real jobs while finishing this.

So, please be patient—it will be worth the wait.

EV Nova is the third in the Escape Velocity series and is expected to be released very, very soon for both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. It looks like it's sure to be worth the wait!
