Nexus 2 - The Gods Awaken

Postby Vigilant » Sat Sep 29, 2012 12:41 pm

Do you remember "Nexus - The Jupiter Incident"?

If not, you should take a look on it. A space adventure that focus on tactical fights (different ship types, free configuration of defense, offense, recon and energy systems, the possibility to aim at enemy ship systems, pausing the game to give orders, ...) and a decent story.

Though nearly 8 years old, it offers great game play. It has some flaws as some unbalanced missions, and the necessity to modify the registry for wide screen resolution.

But as a fan of these games you´ll get much compared to the price today.

Nexus on GOG.

On kickstarter the founding for a sequel has just begun: Nexus 2 on kickstarter.

Yeah, played it and like it. Some missions where quite hard.

As far as I remember it was planned to be a sequel to (checks wikipedia) oh ... Imperium Galactica. Doesn't really have anything with IG to do though but a good game anyway.

Recommended for people, maybe I should find my disk and install it tonight :)

Between FTL and, if it come, Nexus 2 I think us space junkies re going to be very happy.

yeah, I really liked Nexus (and still like it). It's a great game on a GREAT engine. I could never play on DX9, only DX8, but the graphics were still beautiful and the performance (in relation to the graphics) really good

For those unfamiliar with Nexus I have dug around and found the original tech demo for what would later become Nexus: The Jupiter Incident. Originally CDV Germany tried to shoe horn the game into Imperium Galactica 3 but it was not to be.

Away from CDV Germany and now with HD Interactive a demo for the now named Nexus: The Jupiter Incident was released. There were actually 2 releases. One was a single player and the other a multiplayer. The server for the MP is long since gone but the single player is still just as playable as it was back in 2004.

and of course there has to be mods : http://arparso.de/nexus/forum/index.php
