Note: EV Nova is not being sold anymore and is listed only for people who had purchased it in the past.
In EV Nova (the "threequel" to Escape Velocity), the developers are working on a huge update to the game -- it's been rewritten so that the graphics engine is 16 bit, handles transparencies, hue tinting, thruster and laser "glowing", and a number of other really cool features. The graphics for the static scenes are all 32 bits of love, and there are QuickTime movies for many aspects of the game (don't worry, they augment the game, the developers aren't turning the game into an "interactive novel" or anything silly like that).
