I’ve always considered myself to be a particular sort of gamer: the kind who loves the stories they weave above all else, and the characters who carry them. But I discovered something about myself recently—I can just as easily love gameplay too. Thanks for opening my eyes, Nova-111.
Have you heard of Nova-111? I barely had, but now I must show it to you. It’s a wonderful surprise of a video game. It’s partially turn-based, partially real-time. It’s action mixed with puzzles. Its on Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Vita, PC and Mac and is coming to Wii U. It just came out. It’s terrific.
Taking turns is lovely. Twitchy action is lovely as well. Funktronic Labs' upcoming PC adventure Nova-111 combines turn-based and real-time gameplay into an incredibly intriguing, double-lovely thing.
