Update #2 just released!

Hello everyone, we are happy to announce that UPDATE #2 is ready. Here is the changelog for v1.2:

  • Increased max zoom out (second update)
Gameplay improvements
  • Added the option to pause the game when windows are opened.
    New players defaults: progress pause ON, research pause ON, database pause ON
    Existing players defaults: progress pause OFF, research pause OFF, database pause ON
    This option can be changed by the player at any time.
  • The Mothership will now produce very small amounts of resources on Easy and Normal difficulty level – one more option to recover from certain troubles.
  • Adjusted difficulty progression curves (first part). Solves some difficulty steps for extremely fast or extremely slow players.
  • Less population required for the first, second and third energy upgrade.
  • Some initial researches in the tech tree will need less time to research
  • Faster building printing
  • Faster tower printing
  • Omnifoam and Multicrete faster regen speed (~10%)
  • Camera will now move to the position of a recycled structure when player clicks on the recycle message.
  • Splash damage for Mymoon, Mutant Pixer and Mutant Boney decreased by 10-20%
  • New sound when confirming a tower upgrade or printamp deploy.
  • Towers upgrade fix
  • Droner upgrade UI fix
  • Driller bug fix – the driller produced less resources than it was supposed to. You should now expect around 10% faster drilling.
  • Other minor fixes
  • Added a warning message IF the user has no read/write permissions to create the game profile folder. The lack of permissions caused an unresponsive game stuck in the main menu. The player must grant the right permissions or run the game as an administrator in order to run the game properly.
  • Added a warning message for systems that do not support gpu instancing. The game requires DX11 or OpenGL4.1 support. If your hardware does not support instancing the game can still work but the vegetation will not be rendered.
  • Localization fixes

We hope that you will like the new improvements and changes!
Thanks for your feedback and support! :)

About This Game

Do you like RTS games? How about tower defense, is that your cup of tea? Then make sure to play HYPERNOVA.
In this exciting new mélange of RTS and TD, an alien planetary system is in danger. Its huge star Naidira is becoming increasingly unstable. Realizing that it is only a matter of time before an apocalyptic hypernova explosion destroys their entire planet Hadea, the Scynthians devise a plan to escape their world and rebuild their civilization elsewhere in the galaxy. Their salvation lies in an interstellar teleportation device. Unfortunately, the raw materials required to build and power up such a device have long been depleted on Hadea due to centuries of overpopulation.

The only place where they can gather more of these elements is on Hadea’s moon, Haya, an inhospitable world with a toxic corrosive atmosphere and 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 from extinction.

Engage in a role of a Scynthian leader and make the first step towards saving the Scynthians from certain oblivion.

  • Explore the unique environment of Haya and discover different landscapes
  • Search for minerals that can be used to build and power up the Scynthian technology
  • Build a settlement that will allow the Scynthians to survive the harsh conditions on Haya
  • Grow the population
  • Unlock technologies in the tech tree
  • Build a tower defense system against the nasty Hayan creatures
  • Build and power up the Stellar Bridge - a teleportation device
  • Look for ancient relics around the moon
  • Find hidden creatures ;)
