ActaLogic today announced the start of the Steam Greenlight campaign for its upcoming single-player real-time strategy game, Hypernova: Escape from Hadea. Players assume the role of the Scynthians who must colonise and mine Hadea’s moon, Haya, in a bid to escape the death of their star. The developer simultaneously kicks off an Indiegogo campaign in order to fund the last development stages and pre-release activities like localisation and promotion.
Combining classic resource management and civilization building with intuitive tower-defense gameplay, Hypernova: Escape From Hadea is a charming sci-fi and fantasy RTS with quirky characters, beautiful planetary design and a healthy dollop of humour. Launching on Steam Greenlight and Indiegogo today, it’s first steps towards saving the Scynthians from certain oblivion.
“Hypernova looks incredible with clean, colorful graphics and seamless, responsive gameplay”, said Simon Sukljan, CEO of ActaLogic. “We’re excited to finally unveil it to the public and start receiving feedback on our vision so we can incorporate that into the game.”
In Hypernova, an alien planetary system is in danger as its huge star – Naidira – is becoming increasingly unstable. Realising that it’s only a matter of time before an apocalyptic hypernova explosion destroys their entire planet, the Scynthians devise a plan to escape their planet and rebuild their civilization elsewhere in the galaxy. However, the technology to build an interstellar teleportation device that could allow them to escape is powered by materials which have been depleted as a result of their population’s expansion on Hadea.
The only place where they can gather more of these elements is on Hadea’s moon, Haya, an inhospitable world with a corrosive atmosphere, 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. Hypernova: Escape from Hadea is a fantasy game with single-player RTS gameplay launching on Steam for PC and Mac with an expected ESRB rating of 10+.
