The new ActaLogic sci-fi RTS is about to land on PC: here are the launch pictures and the latest information
Why should a science fiction game always take seriously and offer us a dark setting, apocalyptic scenarios and monstrous enemies to break down? The authors of ActaLogic must have felt the same doubts, considering the work done on their new intellectual property, RTS Hypernova: Escape from Hadea, which is about to land on Steam in the dual version for PC and Mac OS.
Hypernova blends the complexity of the real time strategy games with the immediacy of tower defense. The official synopsis of the title perfectly describes the history and the mechanics of this interesting project:
“An alien planetary system is in danger. Its huge star Naidira is becoming increasingly unstable. Realizing that it is only a matter of time before an apocalyptic hypernova explosion destroys their entire planet Hadea, the Scynthians devise a plan to escape their world and rebuild their civilization elsewhere in the galaxy. Their salvation lies in an interstellar teleportation device. Unfortunately, the raw materials required to build and power up such a device have long been depleted on Hadea due to centuries of overpopulation.
The only place where they can gather more of these elements is on Hadea’s moon, Haya, an inhospitable world with a toxic corrosive atmosphere and inhabited by violent creatures. In a desperate, last-ditch effort to save their race, the Scynthians send an expedition to Haya to find a way to power the escape technology and save their culture from extinction. Engage in a role of a Scynthian leader and make the first step towards saving the Scynthians from certain oblivion”
Hypernova: Escape from Hadea is scheduled to be released this September, 6 on Steam both for PC and Mac OS RTS and TD lovers.
