Nova-111

Looking for a new sci-fi themed adventure title that uses turn-based strategy and real-time decision making to help you fight enemies and solve puzzles? Well look no further friends as today Funktronic Labs and Curve Digital announced that upcoming sci-fi adventure game Nova-111 will be making its way on to Xbox One on August 28th.

The game is the brain child of ex Q-Games developers Eddie Lee and Kalin, whose previous work included the PixelJunk series. Since being originally announced, Nova-111 has been a mainstay in the American expo scene – picking up awards at PAX and SXSW, and being named a finalist at Indiecade 2014.

Pilot your trusty orange vessel through mysterious and foreign planets, navigating mind-warping puzzles and engaging in strategic battles with bizarre astrobiological creatures. It’s all based in a twisted environment where the turn-based world and the real-time world collide – can you fix space-time and rescue the scientists lost in the aftermath of the Universe’s Greatest Science Experiment?

Nova-111 features

  • Twisted mix of turn-based and real-time gameplay
  • Strategic combat where brains beats brawn
  • Mind-warping puzzles…in space!
  • Abilities like TIME-STOP to cleverly avoid danger
  • Collectible upgrades and modules for your ship
  • Dynamic soundtrack suited to your play style
  • SCIENCE – who doesn’t like scientific progress?

With Nova-111, we really wanted to create a fresh spin on the turn-based strategy genre and we have been completely blown away by the support and reception that we have received so far. We can’t wait to see what players think of our game.

Said Eddie Lee, co-founder of Funktronic Labs.

Managing director of Curve Digital, Jason Perkins further added:

The team at Funktronic labs had an awesome vision with Nova-111 and when I first played the game, I was genuinely impressed with the quality, design and game mechanics they had created. We have had a blast helping them bring the game to consoles and we hope everyone enjoys exploring outer space when the game lands on August 25th.
