Escape Velocity Nova Update
8:57 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Ambrosia Software has recently updated their Escape Velocity Nova progress log with some new information. For those unfamiliar with the title, EVN (also known as Escape Velocity 3) is the "threequel" to Ambrosia's space exploration game Escape Velocity, which starts players off with a single ship and hurls them into a vast universe full of various adventures. According to the web site description, EVN features "book-length background stories written about the scenarios," which should make for some rich plot-driven gameplay.

The updates listed are as follows:

  • IFF scrambler outfit
  • Reinforcement inhibitor outfit
  • Optional memory management at startup for low-memory conditions
  • Lots more stuff you'll have to wait for

For those who missed an update made earlier to the log, this game is being Carbonized for Mac OS X compatibility. There has yet to be a release date posted, but the game seems to be coming along nicely. A link to the progress log has been provided below for those that wish to scan it for more information.
