ActaLogic announced the start of the Steam Greenlight campaign for its upcoming single-player real-time strategy game, Hypernova: Escape from Hadea. 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.
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.
