Hypernova: Escape from Hadea re-releases and gets a new lease on life for Linux, Mac and Windows on Steam. So this innovative, colorful and deep strategy game launch last Fall. Now receiving a major update. And also translated into Russian, Spanish, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese. So the game re-releases at a lower price point. But only for a limited time to find an even wider audience.
Hypernova combines classic real-time strategy with tower defense in an open world. Become something special in the process of the original RTS. The player decides where to land the mothership on a strange moon. Also what resources to gather, which tech to research. Where to put or move the defense towers. While combating waves of humorous beasts.
The alien world of Hadea is colorful and charming. But misleading: this is a deep and diverse strategy game. That brings back old school sensibilities.
“We are thrilled to introduce new changes in Hypernova that will help expand our community even more,” said Simon Sukljan, CEO of ActaLogic. “Combining real-time strategy and tower defence genres, Hypernova challenges players with complex strategic decision-making while exploring the colourful and whimsical game world. We hope that new and old players will appreciate the revamp of the game and look forward to hearing what they think!”
A planetary system called Hadea is in danger. Since it’s huge star Naidira is becoming increasingly unstable. Realizing it is only a matter of time. The apocalyptic explosion will destroy their entire planet. Incluing the natives, Scynthians. So it’s up to you to devise a plan to escape Hadea. Then rebuild their civilization somewhere else.

The salvation lies in an interstellar teleportation device. Unfortunately, the raw materials required to build and power up such a device. These have long been depleted. So the only place offering more is Hadea’s moon Haya. This is an inhospitable world with a toxic corrosive atmosphere. Also home to some strange creatures.
So in a desperate effort to save their race. The Scynthians send an expedition to Haya. Working to find a way to power the escape technology. And save their culture from extinction.
In Hypernova, the players take on the role of a Scynthian leader. All set with a clear goal. Gather enough resources to power up an interstellar teleportation device. Then escape the doom of Naidira’s explosion. They need to build settlements and grow the population. While gathering minerals necessary to develop the Scynthian technology.
They may also come across ancient relics scattered around the moon. These grant in-game resources and completing achievements. While the online leaderboards allow the players to compete for the title of the ultimate Scynthian leader. Easy peasy, right?
In order to survive the attacks from creatures sleeping in lairs. Also roaming the unforgiving Hayan landscape. Players must set up a system of defense towers. These towers can be moved, but the suitable terrain is in short supply. Especially since it is also needed for other buildings. Where should the towers and buildings be placed? Where and when to expand? What creatures to battle, which minerals to gather? What technology to research? Where to land the mothership in the first place? Decisions, decisions!
