Escape Velocity: Nova update
6:00 AM | Tom Bridge | Comment on this story

Ambrosia Software, makers of such quality Mac shareware games as Maelstrom, Escape Velocity and Harry the Handsome Executive, have released several images and given a new name to their upcoming threequel in the Escape Velocity series. EV: Nova, formerly the slightly more pedestrian Escape Velocity 3, is marked as "in development." No estimated timeline is given for the Beta and final versions, but one would hope that Ambrosia could get EV: Nova out the door this year. Matt Burch, one of the lead programmers on EV: Nova posted an update to the progress log recently and included a feature we found amusing:

* Increased max number of explosion types and implemented the 'bm' resource.
For more details and screen shots be sure and visit the progress log and web site.
