This classic action/adventure game for the Mac is now available to Windows users. EV: Nova is the third game in the Escape Velocity series, and is by far the most ambitious installment to date. EV Nova thrusts you into a sprawling universe dominated by a myriad of warring factions, each sharing a common bond, but so philosophically different as to make conflict inevitable. With an open-ended plotline, you call the shots as to how your game will progress. You can beef up your ship and hire fighter escorts, or you can begin a career in trading with your fleet peacefully roaming the galaxy looking for great buys and running trade routes for credits. Several huge plotlines within the game take you to the edge of the universe or have you joining the Federation in its fight against the invading Aurorans.
