Escape Velocity Nova

Post by Arkanay on Sun Apr 03, 2011 12:46 am

Although it is an old game, Escape Velocity Nova, in my opinion, is one of the greatest games ever made.




Developed by AmbrosiaSW, EV Nova is a futuristic, sci-fi, space RPG game, where you command your own craft (which you can modify and, eventually acquire better crafts, which you can also modify...), revolving around a very open Universe, where humanity has colonized the stars and there's a lot of stuff going on. Razz

There are 6 campaigns which you can complete, by choosing who you want to side with (Federation, Rebels, Pirates, Vell-os, Aurorans, Polaris). But there are also many side-quests and extra-things to do. You can trade goods across planets, be a pirate and steal cargo and credits from other crafts, have your own fleet, gamble, be a mercenary and hunt down specific ships, work for certain companies and if you manage to get a high combat rank, you can even fight off entire planetary fleets and become the military dictator of a planet. Wink

As if it weren't enough, you can also create plug-ins, which allow you to modify the game as you wish (To do this, you must first download the plug-in program) You can also share them and download other people's plug-ins in the website. You can make anything you want with plug-ins. New missions, new governments, new weapons, etc. Some people even made new campaigns and with the right skills, new designs for ships and such. Smile


You can download the shareware version and play for free. It will not allow you to complete any campaign or mess around with plug-ins, but it will give you the right taste of the game. Then if you enjoy it, you can purchase it and enjoy it fully, as it should be. Smile

What's the ESRB rating? I'm only allowed to play eC(early childhood) rated games. Sad

Just kidding with you Ark. Looks better then the Space Stage in Spore.

Hehe, that picture is the game map. It has a little twist on it, though. If I'm not mistaken, it belongs to a guide someone made about asteroid mining. Nonetheless, that's the real map. ^^

Not sure if I made it clear but through plug-ins you can literally make your own Universe as you wish. Smile

Just bumping this to draw attention to the game once more.

If you have any questions about EVNova, feel free to ask them. Wink


I am currently working on a plug-in, making my own universe, planets, factions, weapons, story, etc. A lot of fun. Very Happy

It is a good game. Shame I couldn't progress further after the Mu'hari bit, though.

Glad you enjoy it, Thomas.

I think the game is under-rated, for I believe it has a lot of good features and not enough recognition.
Maybe the fact it's not that well known makes it more special. ^^


You can always purchase it in order to proceed in the storyline and gain access to all aspects EVNova has to offer. Razz
