06.08Dark Nova Update
Wow, long time no blog. Hopefully that indicates we’ve been too busy working on improvements to Dark Nova to worry much about blogging… hopefully.
Actually, that’s true. Jatin has been working hard to modularize and modernize the game engine to support more content and easy integration of additional quests. The original Space Trader code is brilliant but difficult to extend without a major rewrite so that’s what we’ve been working on.
Also, we’re gearing up for two new projects based on the Dark Nova Universe:
- Dark Nova II
- Dark Nova Omniverse
Aside from all of that, we’re working on porting all of the code improvements from Dark Nova Android to Dark Nova iOS.
Stay tuned, we’re about to start testing a new Dark Nova beta with many new quests on the new engine!
Several issues were fixed and included in the new 1.2 update. We fixed the graphics problems and found a couple of nasty crash bugs which are now fixed.
Hey Android players, we found a display bug in our 1.1 update so the update has been pulled. We’re testing a fix and should have a new update published by tomorrow morning.
Thanks for your patience!
We just published Dark Nova onto the Android Marketplace. The wait is over! Have fun!!!
Thanks to our developers, Jatin Shah and Harsh Dev Chandel, our Beta Testers, and everyone else who helped out! Now the team is heading to throw back some Saurian Brandy with Romulan Ale chasers!
We’ve hit the first major Beta milestone for Dark Nova Android. This version is 99% functionally complete. The Android team has done a great job getting is to this point. We’re releasing Beta 1 and we hope it gets tested by all of the folks who have requested the port! This is a good playable version of Dark Nova.
We need your help testing! We’re shooting for a November release!
