Nova-111 is a sci-fi themed turn-based adventure game with a twist of real-time action! Fighting aliens in space for SCIENCE!
History[edit | edit source]
After the release of Funktronic Labs' "Lotus" in August 2013, the developers began playing around with the idea of a simple turn-based game with real-time elements. The developers all love the interestingly deep strategic decisions of turn-based games, but felt that oftentimes pure turn-based gameplay lacks the urgency that real-time games provide. On the other hand, real-time games have that fun intrinsic knee-jerking sense-of-urgency, but time elapses too quickly for the player to plan methodically. So, why not merge turn-based and real-time gameplay together, and bring out the best of both words; and thus "Nova-111" was born. In July 2014, the Indie Fund announced that they they are now supporting Nova-111.
Development Team[edit | edit source]
This game was created by a handful of talented game developers, including former developers of the PixelJunk series.
Game Story[edit | edit source]
Once upon a spacetime, there existed a team of intelligent scientists, who were living in a turn-based world. They were interested in expediting their scientific research, and thus began developing the "Chronova Device" that will unlock the universal "real-time". All was fine and dandy, that is, until one day a science experiment went horribly wrong, and as a result created a cosmic real-time/turn-based time-vortex which mashed the two unlikely worlds together. You pilot the "Nova-111" starship, a harmless research vessel which was improvised for rescue and survival in hostile environments.
