    EDIT: Red Nova will be launching on December 14th, 2010 at $0.99

    Hi everyone! It's been a while since I last posted about Red Nova, but as of Monday morning it's been submitted to Apple for approval. Until then I don't have an exact release date, but let's just say if things go well it will be Early December 2010.

    Just a note: The survival shooter mode that is releasing in December is "Red Nova Episode 1: First Contact" and Episode 2 will be released as a free update to the game in early 2011. Hopefully by people taking advantage of the $0.99 early adopter sale when the game comes out, I'll be able to release more episodes after that :)

    EDIT: Here is the official trailer, enjoy!

    Glad to hear you guys like it :)

    And yes, you read right the game is universal and supports retina graphics as well as iOS 3.1.3 (it's been tested and runs reasonably well on 1st gen iPhones and iPod Touches, though obviously without Game Center support).

    The price will go up as more and more episodes are added, but I want as many people to enjoy my game and support my work as possible at the start!

    This looks really nice. It reminds me of Space Miner and Alien Space. Are there any asteroids in the game?

    I like how the fighter bounces off enemies when it collides with them :p

    Thanks!

    No asteroids right now, but I plan to have them added as part of Episode 2 :)

    Any other thoughts on the trailer?

    I've also updated the game's website with some final screenshots and some more game info.

    First, this game looks fun.

    Second the trailer was pretty good, but there was too much empty space around the iPhone, watching it on my iPod I had trouble making out the gameplay.

    The game looks cool though, I'll definitely pick it up!

    After watching the video, I'm definitely digging the control scheme - it's minimalistic and perfect for me to be able to be absorbed in the action without blocking the view with my fingers.

    Yeah the trailer was meant to be watched at full HD, if you are on a mobile device I'd recommend the gameplay video I posted earlier.

    But thanks so much for all the kind words! :)

    It's still "In Review" as of Friday, but if it isn't approved with enough time for me to send out early review copies to the different sites before mid week I'm hoping December 14th will be the official release date. As much as I want it out right the hell now, I'm not sure I want to end up having to go toe to toe with Infinity Blade on Thursday :eek:

    Just updated the main post with the release date. Is there some way for a mod to change the title to reflect the date btw?
