Freespace: Evolution (Nexus: The Jupiter Incident Mod) Released

This gets a pat on the head and, possibly, the Isaac Newton award1. Nexus: The Jupiter Incident is a pretty great game that, despite coming out in 2004, holds up pretty well2. I don’t have a lot of experience with Real Time Tactics games, mostly because I prefer obsessively micromanaging resources. As a result I only grazed The Jupiter Incident (please do refrain from making fun). Fortunately, I’m not alone; it’s not my fault. And modders Arparso have obliged me with an inventive idea: Freespace: Evolution, which converts Nexus: The Jupiter Incident from a RTT to a Real Time Strategy game. +100.

It promises to be basically similar, but much much more amenable to geeking out over the minutia, which we of course support wildly. Here’s the trailer.

Like what you see? Get it here.

1) Supposedly, Isaac Newton invented the catflap. Douglas Adams remarked that it takes a genius to render the previously nonexistent completely obvious. Hence the award.

2) After recently replaying GTA: San Andreas (Thank you XBLA’s Black Friday deal), I can report that we were all really, really forgiving, graphics-wise. It’s still otherwise awesome.

Nexus is an excellent RTS space game in itself and to add such a renowned title as Freespace to the mix is killer. Whoever made this mod should be complimented on his work because it take’s alot of time to create these mod’s, I will definately enjoy playing this one.
