Red Nova Episode 2: Mercy (Free update coming soon!)

Here it is. The trailer for Red Nova Episode 2: Mercy!

It will be available on August 23rd as a free update to Red Nova!



"The alien invasion of the human colonies has begun!

Reports are coming in that a massive alien mothership has begun an assault on the shipyards at Gamma Crucis, a mere 88 light years from Earth. It has disabled the fleet there and without your help the crew of those ships will meet an untimely end!

While the Red Nova occupies the mothership you must use your skill to pilot the Raven heavy transport against the fighter onslaught launched by the mothership. After repelling each wave of enemy ships you will have to pick up and transport the crew from their ships to the Red Nova."

Any new ships (craft?) coming? The 3 (not counting the bad one ) that we have are great but a bit more variety would be appreciated.

Great to see this. Absolutely loved the first one, this one will hopefully be even better. :>

I am so omniscient; if there were to be two omniscience's
I would be both!

There's the armored transport that you'll be using in Episode 2, it will likely be available to use in Episode 1 as well.

After Episode 2 is released I'll see what I can do about adding some more prototypes

I've been waiting on this update, what's the estimated timeframe?

Edit: It's not the Borg, is it?

Hoping to have final testing done in the next few days. As long as everything comes back okay it's off to Apple! I'll post here when it's finally submitted.

As for what the alien menace is, it's not the Borg, but I am not yet at liberty to reveal more information
