Hamburg, Germany - January 17th, 2012 – Today, Fishlabs announces Galaxy on Fire 2™ - Supernova for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Supernova™ is the second add-on for the highly successful sci-fi saga featuring the dare-devil space adventurer and mercenary Keith T. Maxwell and kicks off right where the first add-on Valkyrie™ ended. This time, however, the focus will be laid on the long-lasting struggle between the Nivelian Republic and the Midorian Confederation and the gamers will have to face a vast number of new challenges and prevail in an extensive set of new missions. Galaxy on Fire 2™ - Supernova, which will be introduced to the press and media at the GDC 2012 in San Francisco, is currently set to be released in the second quarter of 2012.
’Supernova will not only be more cinematic and more varied, but also at least twice as long as Valkyrie,’ says Fishlabs CEO Michael Schade. ‘We’ve put a lot of time and effort into the writing of the complex new storyline, which includes a lot of new mission types and makes for a truly outstanding gaming experience. But also the graphics and the sound design will be absolutely top-notch! When it comes to Supernova, the name really is the game!’
After the unravelling of the Valkyrie conspiracy, daily routine has returned to the Deep Science space station. Carla dreams of a quiet and idyllic life with her sweetheart Keith, but the restless space war hero is not ready to settle yet. Hence the desperate plea for help of an old friend comes right in time: A gigantic supernova, which seems to be of unnatural origin, threatens to destroy the whole Mido sector and its inhabitants.
In the course of Galaxy on Fire 2™ - Supernova, which promises more than 10 hours of action-packed gameplay, the gamer will not only meet again a lot of acquaintances such as the brilliant scientist Khador, the fierce weapons dealer Alice or the shady drug dealer Mkkt Bkkt, but also come to face a hitherto unknown faction and lay his hands on a vast number of new space ships, weapons systems and high-tech gadgets. More than ever, Supernova™ will focus on the delicate political tensions, which make the Galaxy on Fire universe a tenuous danger zone, which is about to crack apart at the factional seams any moment.
