Nexus 2 Announced

Most Wanted Entertainment announces Nexus 2, an upcoming sequel to Nexus: The Jupiter Incident, their space-based tactical real-time strategy game. The original Nexus was was released in May 2005, and the following year what seemed to be a teaser for a sequel popped up, but no more has been heard of this since. "We re-launched the original Nexus on Steam a while ago, and even now we see a substantial amount of new players buying the game each month", says MWE owner Mike Horneman. "We have a very vocal fan base, and know that there's a large number of people out there who would love to see a sequel made." The game is being self-funded by Most Wanted Entertainment with the assistance of crowdsourced financing through GamesPlant, and while they don't share any details about the game at this point, they do outline how the financial part of this will work:

"We're happy to put a large chunk of our own resources into making Nexus 2", said Horneman, "but realistically we cannot fund the whole project ourselves. So, with GamesPlant, we can offer all our fans out there a chance to be part of the Nexus 2 project. The more you pledge, the more you will benefit; from digital pre-orders, through special boxed editions and your name included in the game, right up to profitsharing; everyone can be a part of this."

The GamesPlant site allows users to "pledge" funds to projects, with the money only actually deducted if the project meets its start criteria. If Most Wanted's Nexus 2 plan succeeds, it will be the largest game ever started on the site.

Nice, loved this game. The game was insanely hard in parts but that may have just been me not understanding what I needed to do. I recall one mission that made me quit. I think I was assaulting a huge base with a shield up. I needed to drop the shield and was supposed to use special anti shield weapons or something but there was a fleet of ship inside the shield blowing the hell out of me.

Don't remember how many times I tried that mission, at one point I was trying to use a cheat to make me invulnerable...still couldn't pass that mission. (couldn't get cheat to work properly I guess...) I hope the experience will be better on this one because I loved the game up to that point, very challenging, lots of fun, but lets not have anymore missions like that.

I never thought there would be a sequel - this is welcome news! The first was an awesomely epic space opera with tons of capital ship porn to go around. Very excited about this. Where do I donate?

All I now need is a sequel to JTF. That, too, was one brilliant game.

Haha, yes - JTF was fun. A bit cheesy, but fun. Adding co-op was the best move they ever could have made for that game and is the main reason why it gets played through over and over again.

But yeah, I'm so happy to hear this news.

To the guys who couldn't complete it:
If you're interested I could look for my old saves and zip them up.

I'm pretty sure I played on easy though (you were quite limited in what you could change about your ships before a mission. And on higher difficulties you sometimes had to prepare multiple missions beforehand. And I just didn't wanna play with a FAQ on my lap), I'm not sure if you could change it halfway through.

Finally, took them long enough.
Never finished the first one, though. Came to a cutscene that crashed that game even when skipped.
I never finished the first one because I encountered a mission I couldn't complete. I should give it another shot, but I've found that my RTS skills decreased when I hit my 30's. So I went from bad to worse.

Still, I liked the concept of the game so I'd like to see the sequel get made as well. Who knows, maybe they'll dumb it down enough that I can actually play through it. I also like the way they're funding the game - giving gamers a chance to be a bigger part of the process.
