Developer/publisher Novaquark Format PC Release 2017
It feels as if the latest crop of space games is engaged in a form of elaborate one-upmanship. No Man’s Sky boasts an infinite universe, while Novaquark’s startlingly ambitious sci-fi MMO now promises a seamless and fully editable sci-fi setting with millions of stars. Influenced by the likes of Space Engineers,
Minecraft and EVE: Online, it gives you the ability to create everything from ships to societies – in the first instance, showcasing a realtime building model that lets you bolt on a new cockpit within seconds and hop inside. The reach of some of its features is theoretical: millions of players will be able to share the same world, but whether it reaches that many is another matter, while planetsized constructions are as possible as they are unlikely. Nonetheless, for sheer scope it’s hard to beat – though it probably won’t be long until someone tries.
