In a post on publisher #Curve Studios website, PR and Marketing Manager Rob Clarke said NOVA 111 has already been announced for #Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. The title will also be coming to the Xbox One and Wii U. A game, which Clarke calls “the world’s first turn-based real-time puzzle game.”
NOVA 111 takes place in a futuristic world where players will be trying to save 111 scientists who are trapped in some kind of time vortex. You won’t just be solving puzzles but also fighting enemies, which you can choose to attack head on or take a more strategic route.
Navigate your trusty orange science vessel as you voyage through mysterious planets in search for the famed scientists who were lost into the cosmic REAL-TIME vortex. Solve puzzles and engage in strategic battles with astrobiological creatures in a twisted environment where a turn-based world gradually transforms into real-time. Collect new abilities and upgrade modules for your ship along the way!
“Key to the game is the idea of blending together both real time and turn based gameplay seamlessly,” says Clarke. “This isn’t about having separate turn based and real time sections – the way the game, enemies and the environment react to you can be mixed up at a moments notice making for a game that’s both very strategic but easy to pick up and play.”
The game is being developed by the relatively small independent company Funktronic Labs, whose past games include Kyoto, Lotus, and Collider.
