Vivendi-Universal Games announced today that it has signed a global distribution agreement with HD Interactive to distribute Nexus - The Jupiter Incident. Which effectively means that they will be putting it on the shelves, where you will be able to pick it up, bag it up and take it home in early October.
VU Games will be distributing Nexus - a real-time 3D tactical strategy space game from Mithis Entertainment, since you ask - across North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific with the exception of France, Spain, Italy, Benelux and Russia, where space is illegal. HD Interactive will handle publishing duties.
In fact, thinking back, "tactical strategy space game" is probably not the best description. In developer Mithis' words it's "a TFS: a Tactical Fleet Simulator". It's pure tactical space combat. In the words of one of our spaced out young friends, "this is like Homeworld but without the tedium of resource management".
As a young pilot stuck in the middle of an interstellar conflict, you'll tackle various missions, repairing, upgrading and enhancing your ships in-between, with nary a galactic combine 'arvester to worry about. Visually the game already looks spectacular, and it doesn't muck about in motion either. Expect lots of ums and ahs.
