EV: Nova Hits Beta 7
8:13 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Escape Velocity: Nova from Ambrosia Software is nearing release: author Matt Burch writes that the game has reached beta 7. In a post to the EV Nova progress log, Burch went on to say that this might be the last beta before going into the final candidate stage:

EV Nova beta 7 released.

Why beta 7 and not final candidate 1? Because we made enough changes to warrant an extra beta. This will let us test more stuff now and not be forced to wait till the last minute. Luckily this should make the real final candidate stage fairly painless.

For reference, there are about 600 items in my change log (which covers only the game engine itself, not the scenario data or graphics) for the period between beta 1 and today.

If all goes well, EV Nova should be released sometime in February. Be sure to check out IMG's preview of EV Nova to learn more about this exciting title.
