Do you like turn-based gaming? Do you prefer real-time to turn-based? Well, no matter what you answered, you may be interested in an upcoming game by the name of Nova-111.

The concept for the game reads, “Once upon a spacetime, there existed a team of intelligent scientists, who were living in a turn-based world. They were interested in expediting their scientific research, and thus began developing the “Chronova Device” that will unlock the universal “real-time”. All was fine and dandy, that is, until one day a science experiment went horribly wrong, and as a result created a cosmic real-time/turn-based time-vortex which mashed the two unlikely worlds together. You pilot the “Nova-111″ starship, a harmless research vessel which was improvised for rescue and survival in hostile environments.”

It sounds interesting enough. It seems like it’ll be similar to the various Roguelikes. Your ship and the enemies will each move one square at a time simultaneously, however you will be able to break out of the turn-based rule by utilizing special powers.

What do you think of this concept?

Thanks, Kotaku.
