About Us

~About Novus Astra~

I started this company in 2008 not even sure what I was going to do with it. Over the years I have used it for game hosting of many different games, and even other projects I have created. However my past projects were all things I lost interest in over the years as many of them were anime games and programming is just a hobby to me and I would never be able to see the games go live due to legal reasons so I wanted to do something a bit more open, a project I could actually showcase to the world. When this game was approved for Steam, I gained further motivation as it is one of my lifelong goals to make something I can share with other people.
~About the name Novus Astra~

The name "Novus Astra" is the English meaning of the latin words "New Star", the reason this was chosen is because the company is essentially a new star. With the revival of a classic game being the cornerstone of the company, I wanted the name to reflect the new revival and the star reflecting the arrival of a new company. I will admit, I was not the only one trying to come up with a new name and the other person helping me agreed that this was the best fit. The new company name went into effect on August 30th, 2023.
~About the game~

This was originally a game created by Gunbuddy13 many years ago back in the very early 2002 to 2004 area using the BYOND engine. A user by the name of Johan411 recreated the source in roughly 2010 to 2011 and released it to the public. This recreation had a massive amount of inconsistencies, bugs and other problems. I have used this source as a mere reference and rewritten the entire game from the ground up completely from scratch to create a smoother, more efficient product.
~In closing~

Unlike other companies who are only into producing games for a profit, I do this for fun. If people wish to spend money here, that is entirely their choice and under no means do I pressure people for it nor will I ever do so. I make the options available but I am not after a profit only to share my work with the world as a whole and hopefully bring people a game they can enjoy.
